With 38% richly nourishing protein, and limited to 20% low-glycemic carbohydrates to nourish dogs of all life stages according to their evolutionary and biological needs. Free of rendered poultry meals, 1/3 of the meats are from dehydrated chicken and turkey (air-dried at low temperature from fresh meat) for a concentrated source of nourishing protein. Unmatched by any other food, 2/3 of the meats are FRESH (refrigerated, without preservatives) or RAW (flash-frozen, without preservatives), including the top 10 meat ingredients. Nutrient-dense WholePrey™ ratios of fresh meats, organs, and cartilage plus fresh whole fish and fresh whole eggs provide a natural source of virtually every nutrient your dog needs. Infusions of gently freeze-dried liver enhance flavor and palatability naturally, making ORIJEN deliciously tasty, even for fussy eaters.
MEAT AND PROTEIN RICH
Made with 85% premium meat ingredients, ORIJEN Original features a richly nourishing and Biologically Appropriate™ protein level of 38% to closely replicate your dog’s natural diet.
RICH IN NON-RENDERED FATS
Animal fats are essential for peak health. That’s why ORIJEN Original features naturally occurring, non-rendered fats from fresh poultry, fish, and eggs.
DHA AND EPA FROM FRESH FISH
Fresh saltwater fish are a Biologically Appropriate™ source of DHA and EPA, which are essential for your dog’s immune and nervous systems. DHA and EPA are not available from plant sources, such as flax, coconut or sunflower.
Your dog’s natural diet contains few carbohydrates. That’s why ORIJEN is free of high-glycemic ingredients like potato and tapioca, and contains less than half the carbohydrates of conventional dog foods.
GLUCOSAMINE & CHONDROITIN
ORIJEN’s fresh poultry, meats and fish provide a rich and natural source of glucosamine and chondroitin, so no synthetic sources are added to ORIJEN foods.
