Orijen Original Dry Dog Food
All dogs evolved as carnivores and possess a biological need for a diet that's rich and varied in fresh whole meats. Orijen Original food is formulated to meet those needs.
With 38% richly nourishing protein and limited to 20% low-glycemic carbohydrate, it aims to nourish puppies according to their evolutionary and biological needs. Free of rendered poultry meals, 1/3 of the meats are from dehydrated chicken and turkey, air dried at a low temperature from fresh meat, for a concentrated source of nourishing protein. Unmatched by any other food, 2/3 of the meats are fresh (refrigerated, without preservatives), or raw (flash-frozen, without preservatives), including the top ten meat ingredients.
Nutrient-dense WholePrey™ ratios of fresh meats, organs and cartilage plus fresh whole fish and fresh whole eggs provide a natural source of virtually every nutrient your dog's needs. Carbohydrates are limited and fast carbohydrates are replaced with low glycemic, locally grown vegetables, fruits, and botanicals. This helps maintain healthy blood sugar levels, reduces the potential for fat storage and promotes overall good health. It is free of pea or potato protein concentrates, which are often substituted for meat protein. Infusions of freeze-dried chicken and turkey liver enhance flavor and palatability naturally, making it deliciously tasty, even for picky dogs.
