ALL DOGS ARE CARNIVORES, BIOLOGICALLY ADAPTED TO THRIVE ON A VARIED DIET OF WHOLE GAME, FISH AND FOWL, WITH SMALLER AMOUNTS OF FRUITS, VEGETABLES AND GRASSES.

That’s why ORIJEN TUNDRA features unmatched fresh meat inclusions (60%) including goat, venison, mutton and bison from northern prairie farms, rabbit and duck from the Canadian Shield, Arctic Char from pristine Yukon waters, and wild-caught cod from the cold Bering Sea — all, in richly nourishing WholePrey™ ratios to dramatically reduce the need for synthetic ingredients.

Loaded with richly-nourishing meat (80%) to maintain lean muscle mass, ORIJEN’s award-winning low-carbohydrate, low-glycemic foods support healthy blood sugars and peak conditioning in all dogs of all breeds and lifestyles.

Prepared with authentically fresh and local ingredients in our award-winning kitchens, ORIJEN is guaranteed to keep your dog happy, healthy and strong.

    To mirror Mother Nature

    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 80% meat ORIJEN features a Biologically Appropriate™ protein level of 38% which closely replicates your dog’s natural diet.

    RICH IN ANIMAL FAT
    Animal fats are essential for peak health. That’s why ORIJEN TUNDRA is loaded with naturally occurring, non-rendered fats from fresh fish, fowl and game.

    DHA AND EPA FROM FRESH FISH
    Fresh fish (such as Arctic Char, Pilchard and Steelhead trout) are 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 TUNDRA features fresh and low-glycemic fruits and vegetables such as pumpkin and butternut squash. No potato or tapioca here, and at less than 20% carbohydrate, ORIJEN TUNDRA contains less than half the carbohydrates found in conventional dog foods.

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

    arrow

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

    Fast carbohydrates such as rice, potato or tapioca elevate blood sugar levels and are easily stored in the body as fat. Indeed, just like with people, excess carbohydrates are the leading dietary cause of overweight conditions in dogs.

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

    CALORIE DISTRIBUTION
    ME (calculated metabolizable energy) is 3840 kcal/kg (461 kcal per 120 g cup). Calories are distributed to support peak conditioning with 40% from protein, 18% from fruits and vegetables, and 42% from fat.

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

    That’s why Biologically Appropriate™ ORIJEN mirrors the foods Mother Nature intended your dog to eat. Equally important is the natural taste, after all, your dog deserves to enjoy his meals too.

    Your dog is a unique individual and his feeding requirements will 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.
