    Any thoughts or opinions? Has anybody tried EVO and then switched to TOTW or another grain-free food?

    same as Dekka, I was on EVO but went to Orijen mainly because I could get it online and the only place I could get EVO was from a chain of pet shops I detest.
    Buster liked the taste of Orijen more till I switched back to complelty raw.

    I've done Evo, TOTW, Wellness CORE, Timberwolf (are they grain-free? can't remember), and Orijen. Meg has definitely done best on the Orijen, worst on the Wellness. I think you have to try them and see what works for your dog; all are very high quality foods, but some sit better with some dogs than others.

    I've never switched from EVO, other than to go from the original formula to the red meat formula. Finding something that Bimmer eats without having to be coaxed or coerced isn't that easy, and he dives into his RM. He will turn up his nose at raw poultry or pork for it, and seems to even prefer it to some commercial beef.

    He's ten years old, looks and acts half his age at most, no skin issues - which is a big deal for me in my experience with GSDs, his teeth are beautiful, he's only had to go to the vet to have an encysted oil gland checked and evacuated and to have his head stitched up after he went after a bear.

    Kharma's thriving and loves it.

    Tallulah has done beautifully on it, especially considering that she is coming back from a severe case of parvo before I got her.

    They all love it.

    If it ain't broke, I ain't gonna try to fix it ;)
