Brimming with 38% richly nourishing protein and a limited 16% low-glycemic carbohydrates, ORIJEN nourishes all dogs according to their evolutionary and biological needs. A full 2/3 of our meat is FRESH (refrigerated, without preservatives) or RAW (flash-frozen, without preservatives), including the top 10 meat ingredients. 1/3 of the meat and fish are specially prepared at 200°F from fresh meats and fish to create a concentrated source of richly nourishing protein that cannot be supplied by fresh meats alone. Nutrient-dense WholePrey™ ratios of fresh meats (including muscle meat, organs, and cartilage) provide virtually every nutrient your dog needs to thrive – only zinc is added. Infusions of freeze-dried liver enhance flavour and palatability naturally, making ORIJEN deliciously tasty, even for fussy eaters.

Only 1 Supplement — Zinc
In nature there are no synthetic supplements, so dogs and wolves derive their complete nutritional needs naturally by consuming whole animals which contain all of the nutrients they need to thrive. That’s why you won’t find long lists of synthetics in ORIJEN dog foods. Loaded with richly nourishing ratios of fresh poultry, organs and cartilage plus fresh whole fish and whole eggs, ORIJEN provides a natural source of virtually every nutrient your dog needs to thrive.
