It is an all life stages formula, so it's just fine for 5 month old Olivia to have. Nola and Pike are not participating in this trial - Nola doesn't do well on any kibble, and Pike is currently on a lower protein brand.
I have fed Orijen before, although never this variety, and it has always agreed with my dogs. It is quite costly, but winds up not being too bad since you have to feed so little of it. It's available in 5lb, 15lb and 26.8lb sizes.
So far, Olivia enjoys it and it hasn't caused any problems. My one massive qualm with it is it stinks. SO. Nauseatingly. Bad. I can't even articulate how bad it smells. I have a sensitive nose, but damn! The scent clings to wherever the bag is stored, it clings to your hands even after washing, and since Olivia is a wire hair with a beard, it sticks in her facial hair. Gag!
We'll report back at the end of the month! Happy Friday, everyone!
