I've heard of a lot of people having issues with BB. Orijen is a good kibble, but it's very rich and calorie dense. Definitely do a slow switch over a couple of weeks. Also keep in mind that overfeeding can cause loose stools/diarrhea. Since it's pretty calorie dense and has fewer fillers, you feed a lot less than you would a lower quality food. Start with a lower amount, and you can always work your way up if your dog starts looking too thin. I always found the recommended amounts on the bag to be more than any of my dogs or cats ever needed.

Same here about the "recommended amount" on the dog food labels. Callie and Molly are both about 15 pounds. If I fed them 1 1/2 cups or cans they would be waddling! Factoring in their morning and bedtime little grandma biscuits and a few pieces of apple, green bean or carrot or lettuce during the day, they don't get any more than 1 cup. And they could both drop a pound and still be fit.

My 9 month old spoo currently eats MORE than the recommended amount of orijen and is not fat, but my mini poodle eats less than the recommended. My pom eats more than the recommended for his freeze dried raw food and is not fat. So definitely go by what your dog 'tells' you.
