Although life styles have changed, the digestive systems of cats and dogs haven't changed for hundreds of years. There forms the basis for the formulation of Orijen Dog Food: Grain Free Adult.
By nature, all dogs are facultative carnivores, thriving on a varied diet of meats with smaller amounts of fruits, vegetables and grasses and biologically adapted to metabolize proteins and fats - not carbohydrates - as an energy source.
The anatomical specialization of dogs to a high-protein, high-fat, meat-based diet can readily be found in the length of their gastro-intestinal tract, the development of their teeth and jaws, and their lack of digestive enzymes to break down starch.
Orijen Dog Food is our top-of-the-line dry dog food!
Orijen Dog Food: Grain Free Adult Benefits
- Champion Pet Foods stands apart as a family-owned producer of Orijen Dog Food manufacturing in their own facility located in the heart of Alberta's prairie farmlands.
- Orijen is a Biological Pet Food following nature by closely matching the foods that dogs are evolved to eat.
- Features a biologically appropriate ratio of 80% meat, 20% produce and 0% grain.
- Uses all human-grade ingredients.
- Uses veterinary-inspected meats.
- Features proprietary, low-temperature (90C/195F) processing methods to retain natural nutrients. Orijen steam-cooks their fresh ingredients in small batches to preserve their natural goodness and delicious taste.
- Made from fresh regional ingredients.
- FRESH means the meats are never frozen and contain no preservatives. Unlike most commercial pet foods, ORIJEN is made with FRESH REGIONAL MEATS that are processed the same day they receive them, and are a key factor in the superior palatability and feeding performance of ORIJEN.
- Excludes ingredients like cereal grains that are not part of the natural diet.
- Has the highest meat inclusions of any dry pet food.
- Provides the essential fatty acids that dogs cannot produce themselves (including DHA and EPA) and are so important to nutritionally support the development of cell membranes, immune systems and a vibrant skin and hair coat.
- Contains native botanicals that include marshmallow, burdock and chicory root, stinging nettle and milk thistle, all of which replicate the natural canine diet and help to soothe, nourish and tone the digestive tract, strengthen the liver and control insulin levels.
- Delicate ingredients, like the botanicals, are added after the cooking process to preserve their natural nutritional qualities.
- Derives the bulk of its nutrition, much more than other dry foods, from whole food ingredients.
