    We used to have a very limited choice of dog foods in Cyprus, but recently this has changed a lot.

    Bella eats about 60% royal canin dry food and the rest ranges from appropriate leftovers, to raw bones, boiled veg, chicken rice, raw veg, nuts, fruit - very varied as you can tell!

    She is a very healthy dog, good stable weight, and her coat is in great conditon, and she loves her food.

    Do I change to a 'better' alternative such as Orjen...or do I continue as I am doing now?

    I am inclined to not change anything... just wanted other opinions.

    On paper - "change" :eek:
    As you know Royal Canin has lots of cereals and orijen is so much better.

    In "practice" stay as you are. She's happy and doing well. It may not be the best food but it's better than lots out there.

    "If" curiosity gets the better of you why not get a small bag (I think it comes in v small sizes) and use as treats, if all goes well, you can pop in the occasional meal and decide.:D

    I empathise - dog food is the bain of my life. I keep coming back to something that I'm not entirely happy with but she loves it and so does her tum. :rolleyes::D

    that's the thing. i know orjen is scientifically a superior food...but she is doing perfect on her current diet.

    I agree with the others if it ain't broke .... I did try Orijen and it didn't agree with Chester. His coat was dull had dry skin and was scavenging all the time. Shame as it is a very good food

    I know but I do know what he does like so depending on money situations I have a range of what to give him dry,wet or raw. :)
