    ALTHOUGH THEY LOOK DIFFERENT, YOUR SENIOR DOG SHARES HIS EATING ANATOMY AND DNA WITH THE GREY WOLF, WHICH MEANS HE’S EVOLVED AS A CARNIVORE AND ADAPTED FOR A DIET RICH IN MEAT — NOT CARBOHYDRATES AND GRAINS.

    MEAT AND PROTEIN RICH
    Made with 80% meat ORIJEN features a Biologically Appropriate™ protein level of 38% to nourish your senior dog according to his anatomical requirements.

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

    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 senior dog’s natural diet contains few carbohydrates. So we make ORIJEN potato-free and with 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.

  • FEEDING GUIDE
    you are what you eat

    arrow

    There are three sources of calories available to your senior dog: protein, fat and carbohydrates.

    While protein and fat are essential for your senior dog; carbohydrates are not. In fact, senior dogs require absolutely no carbohydrate in their diet.

    Fast carbohydrates from rice, corn, potato or tapioca elevate your senior dog’s blood sugar levels and, when not used for energy, are quickly and easily stored in the body as fat. Excess carbohydrates are the leading dietary cause of overweight conditions in dogs of all breeds, and especially among seniors.

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

    CALORIE CONTENT AND DISTRIBUTION
    Metabolizable Energy is 3710 kcal/kg (445 kcal per 250ml/120g cup), with calories distributed to support peak physical conditioning with 41% from protein, 23% from fruits and vegetables, and 36% from fat.

    YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT, AS THE OLD ADAGE GOES. WELL THE SAME IS TRUE FOR DOGS — WHICH IS WHY EVERY DOG DESERVES TO EAT ORIJEN.

    Protein rich and bursting with fresh local meats and fish, ORIJEN SENIOR DOG is formulated to mirror the foods Mother Nature intended senior dogs of all breeds to eat.

    Equally important is the savory taste of ORIJEN that your senior dog won’t soon forget — after all, he deserves to enjoy his meals too.

    ORIJEN SENIOR benefits dogs of every breed and size. Like people, your dog is a unique individual and his feeding requirements will vary with his breed, environment, age and activity.

    That’s why we suggest monitoring his weight and adjusting his rations as needed. We also recommend feeding him twice daily and that you remember to always keep fresh, clean water available to your cherished dog.
