EVOLVED AS CARNIVORES, ALL DOGS ARE BIOLOGICALLY ADAPTED TO THRIVE ON A VARIED DIET OF FRESH WHOLE MEATS, WITH SMALL AMOUNTS OF FRESH FRUITS, BERRIES AND GRASSES.

That’s why ORIJEN ADULT DOG is loaded with meat ingredients (90%), including a Biologically Appropriate™ symphony of cage-free chicken, turkey and nest-laid eggs from local farms, plus wild-caught herring and flounder from North Vancouver Island — all delivered to our kitchen FRESH, where they’re flash frozen and gently freeze-dried to lock in their goodness and taste.

Brimming with goodness to nourish your dog completely, ORIJEN ADULT DOG features poultry and fish in authentic Whole Prey ratios — including richly nourishing liver and heart, marrow and cartilage which supply essential vitamins and minerals in natural form, dramatically reducing the need for synthetic ingredients in ORIJEN foods.

Prepared from Canada’s very best and freshest ingredients in our very own freeze-dry kitchens, ORIJEN ADULT DOG is guaranteed to keep your dog happy, healthy and strong — read our ingredients and we think you’ll agree!

    WHEN LEFT TO THEIR OWN DEVICES, DOGS AND CATS INSTINCTIVELY SEEK OUT CERTAIN WEEDS AND PLANTS THAT ENHANCE THEIR LIFE-FORCE.

    Botanicals serve as tonics and builders to strengthen organs and tissues in specific parts of the body, and aid in digestion. Botanicals help eliminate toxins by stimulating physiological processes like the cleansing of the liver.
