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 6 FISH features a Biologically Appropriate (80.20.0) ingredient ratio of 80% fish, 20% fruit and vegetables, and 0% grain — all slow-cooked at low temperatures to retain their natural goodness.
RICH IN FISH (80%)
All dogs are adapted for a diet rich and diverse in meat proteins — not grains and plant proteins. Made with a full 80% of fish, ORIJEN 6 FISH features high ratios of fish protein to mirror the natural diet.
A RICH VARIETY OF FRESH FISH (6)
The natural diet is diverse, so ORIJEN 6 FISH features a minimum of 6 fresh fish, including salmon, herring and flounder from Canada's cool Pacific ocean, and northern walleye, pike and whitefish* from our cold northern lakes and — ALL DELIVERED FRESH EACH DAY! * Lake Whitefish is a species of fish indigenous to Canada's cold northern lakes, and is not a generic white meat fish.
NO DRY DOG FOOD ON EARTH MATCHES THE QUALITY AND QUANTITY OF ORIJEN'S FRESH FISH INGREDIENTS.
FRUITS and VEGETABLES (20%)
In place of high-glycemic grains such as corn, wheat or white rice, ORIJEN 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 6 FISH for DOGS is grain-free and carbohydrate-limited to match the natural diet of dogs.
