    YOUR DOG SHARES HIS EATING ANATOMY WITH THE WOLF, WHICH MEANS HE’S EVOLVED AS A CARNIVORE, ADAPTED FOR A DIET RICH AND VARIED IN MEAT (NOT CARBOHYDRATES AND GRAINS).

    MEAT AND PROTEIN RICH
    Made with 75% meat ORIJEN REGIONAL RED features a Biologically Appropriate™ protein level of 38% which closely replicates the natural diet, nourishing your dog according to his anatomical adaptation to meat.

    RICH IN ANIMAL FAT
    Animal fats are essential for peak health. That’s why ORIJEN features naturally occurring, non-rendered fats from fresh meats and fish.

    DHA AND EPA FROM FRESH FISH
    Fresh fish is a perfect source of DHA and EPA, essential for your dog’s immune and nervous systems and not available from plant source, such as flax, coconut or sunflower.

    LOW GLYCEMIC
    Your dog’s natural diet contains few carbohydrates. That’s why ORIJEN is potato-free and contains less than half the carbohydrates found in conventional dog foods.

    GLUCOSAMINE & CHONDROITIN
    ORIJEN’s fresh poultry, meats and fish provide a rich and natural source of glucosamine and chondroitin, so no synthetic sources are added to ORIJEN foods.

    NUTRITIONAL GUARANTEE

  • FEEDING GUIDE
    you are what you eat

    arrow

    THERE ARE THREE SOURCES OF CALORIES AVAILABLE TO YOUR DOG: PROTEIN, FAT AND CARBOHYDRATES. WHILE PROTEIN AND FAT ARE ESSENTIAL FOR YOUR DOG; CARBOHYDRATES ARE NOT. IN FACT, DOGS DO NOT REQUIRE ANY CARBOHYDRATE IN THEIR DIET.

    Fast carbohydrates from rice, corn, potato or tapioca elevate blood sugar and are quickly stored in the body as fat, and are a leading dietary cause of overweight dogs.

    By providing more calories from protein and fat (and fewer from carbohydrates), ORIJEN distributes calories to mirror the natural diet, reducing the risk of obesity and diabetes.

    CALORIE CONTENT AND DISTRIBUTION
    Calculated Metabolizable Energy is 3980 kcal/kg (468 kcal per 250ml/120g cup). Calories are distributed to support peak physical conditioning with 39% from protein, 19% from fruits and vegetables, and 42% from fat.

    YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT, AS THE ADAGE GOES. THE SAME IS TRUE FOR YOUR DOG.

    ORIJEN REGIONAL RED mirrors the foods Mother Nature intended dogs to eat. Equally important is the natural taste, after all, your dog deserves to enjoy his meals too!

    Just like you, your dog is a unique individual and his feeding requirements vary with his breed, environment, age and activity. That’s why we suggest starting with the guides below, and then monitoring his weight and adjusting portions as needed. Feed twice daily and remember to always keep fresh, clean water available to your dog.
