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 Six Fresh Fish with Sea Vegetables.
By nature, all dogs are primarily 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.
Surrounded by Atlantic, Pacific and Arctic oceans and home to vast freshwater rivers and lakes, Canadas marine harvest is perfectly suited to the ORIJEN nutritional philosophy of high-protein, low-carbohydrate diets made with maximum inclusions of fresh regional ingredients. High-protein, low-carbohydrate and grain-free ORIJEN 6 FISH replicates the same rich balance of meats, fruits, vegetables and grasses that dogs would encounter in a wilderness setting, but with single-source protein from fish and single-source carbohydrate from potato.
Orijen Dog Food is our top-of-the-line dry dog food!

- Loaded with hand-harvested sea vegetables from Canadas nutrient rich tidal range that are rich in essential B vitamins and trace minerals.
- Full of fresh (not rendered) marine-source omega-3 fatty acids that are rich in EPA and DHA to support peak conditioning.

- 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.
