With 38% richly nourishing protein, and a limited 17% low-glycemic carbohydrates, Orijen nourishes puppies according to their evolutionary and biological needs.
2/3 of Orijen meats are FRESH (refrigerated, without preservatives) or RAW (flash-frozen, without preservatives), including the top 10 ingredients. 1/3 of meats are air dried at 90°C from fresh chicken, turkey and fish to create a concentrated source of richly nourishing protein to support your growing puppy.
Nutrient-dense WholePrey™ ratios of fresh meats, organs, and cartilage plus fresh whole fish and fresh whole eggs provide a natural source of virtually every nutrient your puppy needs. Infusions of freeze-dried chicken and turkey liver enhance flavour naturally, making Orijen deliciously tasty for the fussiest of puppies.
