Orijen is a multi award winning super premium dry dog food from Canada. With no grains and very little carbs, ORIJEN is easily digested by all dogs. It is loaded with a diversity of nourishing meat proteins and fats, but is limited in carbohydrate.
RICH in MEAT & PROTEIN | 80% / 38%
ORIJEN ADULT DOG is made with a full 80% of meat from free-run chicken and turkey, fresh whole eggs and wild-caught fish. These high meat inclusions produce a Biologically Appropriate protein level of 38%, which replicates the natural diet and nourishes your dog according to his anatomical adaptation to meat protein.
RICH in ANIMAL FAT | 17%
Animal fats and oils are essential for the peak health of all dogs — that’s why ORIJEN is free of plant oils and only features fats of premium animal source. Instead of the highly-processed rendered fats used by conventional pet food makers, over 90% of the fats in ORIJEN occur naturally from high inclusions of fresh chicken, turkey, fish and egg.
DHA & EPA from FRESH FISH | 0.6% / 0.3%
Fresh fish is a perfect source of highly digestible and Biologically Appropriate DHA and EPA Omega-3 fatty acids. Essential for your dog’s immune and nervous systems, as well as a glowing skin and hair coat, these richly nourishing fatty acids are not available from plant oils such as flax, coconut or sunflower.
GRAIN-FREE & CARBOHYDRATE LIMITED | 0% / 25%
Your dog’s natural diet contains very few, if any, grains or carbohydrates. That’s why Biologically Appropriate ORIJEN is grain-free and contains less than half the carbohydrates found in conventional dog foods.
LIMITED CALCIUM & PHOSPHORUS | 1.6% / 1.4%
The potential oversupply of calcium and phosphorus in high-protein dog foods is cause for concern. High inclusions of chicken meal, fish meal or turkey meal used to increase protein levels also provide a rich source of minerals and push calcium and phosphorus levels to the upper allowable limits of, respectively, 2.5% and 1.6%.
GLUCOSAMINE & CHONDROITIN | 1400mg / 1000mg
ORIJEN’s high ratios of fresh poultry, meats and fish provide a rich source of glucosamine and chondroitin, which is derived naturally from the fresh meat ingredients — without adding synthetic ingredients to the formula.
VETERINARIAN SELECTED BOTANICALS
Providing the element of your dog’s natural diet that he craves when foraging for grasses and weeds, ORIJEN’s veterinarian-selected botanicals help support your dog’s metabolism, strengthen his organs, and serve as cleansers to rid his body of toxins.
NUTRITIONAL GUARANTEE ORIJEN ADULT DOG is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Dog Food Nutrient Profiles for ALL LIFE STAGES.
