    ALTHOUGH THEY MAY LOOK VERY DIFFERENT, YOUR CAT SHARES HER DNA AND EATING ANATOMY WITH THE LION, WHICH MEANS SHE’S ADAPTED FOR A DIET RICH IN MEAT — NOT CARBOHYDRATES AND GRAINS.

    FISH AND PROTEIN RICH
    Made with 80% fish ORIJEN features a Biologically Appropriate protein level of 42% which closely replicates the natural feline diet.

    FREEZE DRY INFUSIONS
    Each ORIJEN morsel is infused with freeze-dried fish (prepared in our very own freeze-dry kitchens) and is bursting with the natural savory flavors that all cats love.

    NATURAL SOURCE AMINO ACIDS
    ORIJEN’s high WholePrey ratios of fresh fish provide a rich source of amino acids such as Taurine, all of which are derived naturally from meats, eliminating the need for synthetic additives.

    NATURAL SOURCE VITAMINS AND MINERALS
    ORIJEN’s high WholePrey ratios of fresh fish provide a rich source of vitamins and minerals, most of which are derived naturally from our whole food ingredients, dramatically reducing the need for  synthetic additives.

    NATURAL SOURCE GLUCOSAMINE & CHONDROITIN
    ORIJEN’s high WholePrey ratios of fresh fish provide a rich and natural source of glucosamine and chondroitin, so no synthetic sources are added or needed.

    RICH IN HEALTHY FATS
    Animal fats are essential for your cat’s peak health. That’s why ORIJEN features naturally occurring, non-rendered fats from wild-caught fish.

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

    LOW CARB, LOW GLYCEMIC
    Your cat’s natural diet contains few, if any carbohydrates. That’s why ORIJEN contains less than half the carbohydrates found in conventional cat foods, and features low glycemic carbohydrate sources such as lentils and chickpeas.

    THERE ARE THREE SOURCES OF CALORIES AVAILABLE TO YOUR CAT: PROTEIN, FAT AND CARBOHYDRATES. WHILE PROTEIN AND FAT ARE ESSENTIAL FOR YOUR CAT; CARBOHYDRATES ARE NOT.

    In fact, cats 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 cats.

    By providing more calories from protein and fat, and fewer from carbohydrates, ORIJEN provides a calorie distribution that mirrors your cat or kitten’s natural diet — reducing the risk of obesity, insulin resistance and diabetes.

    CALORIE DISTRIBUTION
    Metabolizable energy is 4060 kcal/kg (500 kcal per 250ml cup) (120g) with 41% from protein, 17% from carbohydrates, and 42% from fat.

    HIGH-PROTEIN, LOW-CARBOHYDRATE AND LOADED WITH FRESH REGIONAL FISH, ORIJEN 6 FISH FOR CATS MIRRORS THE FOODS MOTHER NATURE INTENDED CATS OF ALL BREEDS AND LIFESTYLES TO EAT.

    Just as important is the great ORIJEN taste that your cat won’t soon forget. After all, it’s important that your cat enjoys her meals too!

    ORIJEN benefits cats of every breed and size. Just like people, your cat is unique and her feeding requirements will vary with her breed, environment, age and activity. That’s why we suggest monitoring her weight and adjusting her rations as needed.

    We recommend feeding twice daily and remember to always keep fresh, clean water available to your cat or kitten.
