Beware of fake Orijen products!!!
on July 6, 2012
I gave one star not because Six Fish Dog sucks as dog food but rather PetSolutions has a tenancy to sell fake Orijen dog food.
Most buyers, who purchased Orijen for the very first time, will not be able to tell the difference between Orijen Adult Dry Food, Puppy Dry food vs. Six Fish Dog or Regional Red. Only if you have bought all of the variety, hand fed your dog each type and you will be able to recognize the difference.
I am a dog owner that has been feeding my Golden "Orijen" brand dry dog food ever since she was 5 to 7 months old. We started her on Orijen Large Breed Puppy and eventually moved her to Six Fish Dog or Regional Red.
For the longest time, we bought Orijen from Whole Healthy Pet on Amazon. When we saw PetSolutions selling the same type of food for a cheaper price, we decided to give them a try.
When the Six Fish Dog arrived from PetSolutions, the moment I opened it up, I was just standing there scratching my head. Because right off the bat, the aroma coming out from the bag is very different from the normal Six Fish Dog we buy from other sellers. Due to the different smell, I decided to check the Six Fish Dog kibbles that I still have left comparing it to the new Six Fish Dog we just received.
The Six Fish Dog that we got from PetSolutions smelled exactly like Orijen Adult Dog or Orijen Large Breed Puppy. The main meat ingredient in the Adult Food and Large Breed Puppy was mainly chicken/poultry, which is really easy to tell the flavored smell. Six Fish Dog on the other hand, had a very strong fish stink, it's not that surprising considering the entire protein content of Six Fish Dog comes from ... fish only and nothing else.
Not only the smell was distinctively different, what is so surprising and shocking is that the "kibble size" is completely different as well. The fake Six Fish Dog we purchased had a kibble size identical to Orijen Adult Dog or Orijen Large Breed Puppy.
Long story short:
1. Orijen Six Fish Dog does not smell like any other Orijen branded dry dog food. It has a distinctive fish stink that you won't be able to miss.
2. Orijen Six Fish Dog "kibbles" are longer, flatter than usual. You'll find many pieces, a good 50% or more should be elongated, flat looking kibbles. They are not rounded nor do they look like a ball. Orijen Adult/Puppy food has the rounded ball looking kibbles, not Six Fish Dog.
I've already E-Mail PetSolutions many times regarding this problem. The seller did not decide to exchange or provide refund for this incident.
