The higher protein content thing is a myth-dogs thrive on high protein foods. And if it really bothers you /that/ much then you could always look at Acana which is made by the same company as Orijen and is identical in quality but has more fruits and veggies in it. And as far as the cost goes-this person is already spending $75 on NV, might as well spend it on Orijen which is twice as good in quality. Also Orijen/Acana are low-temperature dog foods which means that they won't kill your dog's immune system (it's the only low-temp dry food I know of that's on the market) and they supplement with fruits, vegetables, and live beneficial bacteria instead of chelated minerals and vitamins. Foods like Canidae, AJ, and pretty much any other dry dog food are cooked at very high temperatures and therefore get all the nutrients cooked out and then have to be supplemented with chemicals-its like...eating an overcooked steak with soggy vegetables and canned fruit and then having to take a multivitamin-it defeats the purpose of eating healthy foods.
