Question by aimee c: Question about orijen dog food and dalmatians?
I was feeding my two male Dalmatians on James Well beloved which at the time was about the best dog food made in the UK but this food still contains grains and is only about 25% meat. I have brought a bag of orijen dog food which is 70% meat and the rest of the ingredients is fruit and veg. My concern with this is it is very high in protein 40% and Dalmatians can have problems with forming urine stones. Now i was told that it is not the protein its the purines from the protein you need to be wary of (i dont know how true this is) and i assume if it is a better quality food it should be lower in purines? Do you think i should stick to the james well beloved or keep them on the new Orijen? At the end of the day i just want my dogs to be healthy and have a good diet and any opinions would be much appreciated.

40% protein in crazy high!! Quite apart from the stones, which is significant enough, they’ll be climbing the walls I’d think.
I can recommend Burns which, adult version, is only 18.5% protein. They have a good helpline on their website – and will answer breed-specific questions. I found mine preferred this to James W – which I’ve found is too ‘powdery’, for want of another word. And you don’t have to feed as much Burns as other makes which = less outflow.
Add – It sure is expensive stuff, but seems to have great reviews (are they posting ALL the reviews I wonder). I have to say I may be over-reacting to the 40% protein – especially in a diet which is 70% meat as this one says it is. However, I’ve had issues with another product with 32% protein, in my young hound, so I naturally shy away from anything like as high as this. People have mentioned the carbon footprint, importing from Canada, which for some, might be a turn-off?
