As ambassadogs, Elsa and Buffy had the privilege of getting their paws on a brand new product that has just been launched in the UK:
ORIJEN Small Breed Dog Food!
ORIJEN Small Breed is a Biologically Appropriate dog food, rich in 85% Wholeprey fresh meat (including organs and cartilage), 15% vegetables, fruit and botanicals and absolutely no grains, potato, tapioca or plant protein concentrates.
Elsa and Buffy have happily been eating ORIJEN Original for some time now and although the Original and Small Breed recipes are quite similar, the small-breed food also contains some new ingredients like tasty fresh quail, green mussels which aid joint care and lutein-enriched eggs to support eye health. This new recipe has been specially formulated for small-breed dogs (like our lovely Lhasa Apsos) and still contains all the protein and nutrients packed into a unique, smaller shaped kibble making it easier for them to eat.
It’s best to gradually introduce any new food over a period of time so we have started feeding small amounts of ORIJEN Small Breed as treats and mixed in with the Original recipe at meal times to get Elsa and Buffy used to it, then we will gradually increase the amount over the next few weeks until they are transitioned over.
We try to make meals as ‘enriching’ as possible for Elsa and Buffy, both physically and mentally and ORIJEN kibble is perfect for filling puzzle/ activity bowls like the ones pictured here. It’s fun to watch the girls try and figure these out… Elsa will often give up if she doesn’t feel like the reward is worth the effort, but when we filled them with ORIJEN Small Breed she couldn’t get to it quick enough...and then she wanted a second helping!
Buffy and Elsa have very different appetites but both of them have been eager to taste-test this new food! Although neither of them have any problems eating the larger, round shaped Original kibble, this smaller kibble does seem to be a little easier for them, especially Buffy, to eat. The quality is still as high as we would expect from any ORIJEN product.
We are very pleased to give this new food a huge paws up!
