    I'm thinking of switching Champ over to Orijen and while researching whether or not they use ethoxyquin, I see that they use vitamin E, Rosemary and citric acid as preservatives.

    I know that moistening food that contains citric acid can contribute to bloat. So should I not mix this food with wet food then?? Champ normally gets a can of Evangers at night mixed with his kibble.

    I don't think that adding a bit of canned food is what they mean by pre-moistening.

    Pre-moistening refers to soaking the food in water - so that it balloons. I doubt many canned products would produce that effect, and I'm sure you don't let it sit for half an hour before serving anyway.

    Good news, then. Thanks much.
    I got a sample pack of this Orijen from the feed store, and Champ scarffed it down so fast - as if it was yummy cat food or something. Hopefully his stomach will be okay with it. He's ok on the Candae, but he barely eats it at all.
