    We’ve been giving our 2yr old Orijen Original but she doesn’t seem to like it as much lately and I’ve noticed the colour and texture of the kibble has changed a bit from when we first started buying it. Also I read that the company has been bought by Mars. Just wondering if you have any knowledge of formula or ingredient change.

      Hi Rick, thanks for reaching out. (Sorry for the late response, we had an issue receiving comments). As far as we know there has been no change in the formula or ingredient change. Mars seems to not messing with a good thing…. yet. Typically, from batch to batch you’d expect to see some colour change as they are not adding any artificial colour to a good food like this. The colour will be dependent on the raw materials going in not some artificial colouring agent. Texture should also be fairly similar. In your case, have you fed your 2 year old dog the same food for a long period of time? If that is the case, she’s bored with it. An equivalent would be you eating grilled chicken for every meal for a long time, you’d get sick of it. We normally recommend rotating foods so pick maybe 2 different formulations of Orijen e.g. Regional Red (red meats) and feed 1 bag and then switch back to the Original and feed 1 bag etc. It tends to be better nutrition as well.
