OUR INGREDIENT PHILOSOPHY | FRESH AND REGIONAL
We believe dog lovers want to know where the ingredients in their dog's food come from. For this reason we don't buy the inexpensive, bulk commodity ingredients found in conventional dog foods.
Instead, we use ingredients that are sustainably raised within our region by people we know and trust, approved ' fit for human consumption,' and then delivered to our door FRESH.
And as dogs of all breeds and sizes are carnivores — evolved to thrive on a varied diet rich in meats, with smaller amounts of fruits, vegetables and grasses — ORIJEN SENIOR features a Biologically Appropriate (75.25.0) ingredient ratio of 75% meat, 25% fruit and vegetables, and 0% grain — all slow-cooked at low temperatures to retain their natural goodness.
RICH IN MEAT (75%)
All dogs are adapted for a diet rich and diverse in meat proteins — not grains and plant proteins. With 75% of poultry, eggs, meat and fish, ORIJEN SENIOR features high ratios of meat and protein to mirror the natural diet.
A RICH VARIETY OF FRESH MEATS (6)
The natural diet is seasonal and diverse, so ORIJEN SENIOR features six fresh meats including free-run chicken and turkey, chicken liver, and whole eggs, and a superb selection of wild-caught fish — all delivered fresh each day!
NO DRY DOG FOOD ON EARTH MATCHES THE QUALITY AND QUANTITY OF ORIJEN'S FRESH MEAT INGREDIENTS.
FRUITS and VEGETABLES (25%)
In place of high-glycemic grains such as corn, wheat or white rice, ORIJEN SENIOR features a full complement of regional fruits and vegetables.
While providing a limited amount of carbohydrates, fruits and vegetables provide important vitamins, minerals and protector nutrients in a natural and bioavailable form.
ORIJEN SENIOR is grain-free and carbohydrate-limited to match the natural diet of dogs.
FRESH FISH (2)
ORIJEN SENIOR features world-class freshwater and saltwater fish — harvested responsibly within our region and DELIVERED FRESH, so they're loaded with natural, non-rendered Omega-3 (DHA, EPA).
All ORIJEN foods are free of plant oils such as sunflower, flax, coconut or canola oils all of which provide Omega-3 in a form that is ineffective for dogs.
