Orijen Puppy Food
Get your puppy off to the right start with Orijen Puppy Food – all natural, protein packed and free of fillers so your puppy gets everything he needs to grow and grow and grow.
Orijen Puppy Food’s main ingredients reflect the natural canine diet’s most important requirement: protein. Free-run chicken and turkey, nest-laid eggs and wild-caught fish fill 85% of this incredibly fresh dog food, and vegetables, fruits and botanicals take care of the rest. Unlike most dog food brands that claim poultry as their top ingredient, Orijen keeps their food completely free of rendered poultry meats, opting for two-thirds of fresh or raw meat ingredients and one-third dehydrated meat that has been air-dried at a low temperature from fresh. Local farms supply the ingredients to Orijen’s Kentucky kitchens daily, all with the guarantee that they are fit for human consumption.
An important element of every Orijen dog food is its similarity to the diet of the domestic dog’s wild cousin, the wolf. Not only does Orijen Puppy Food include a variety of fresh meats that mirror puppies’ natural meals, it also uses whole prey animals that provide a perfectly complete source of nutrition. Whole fish and eggs go into the mix as well as edible bone, a rich source of easily absorbed minerals; organs, providing amino acids, healthy fats and a wide range of vitamins; and meat, needed for its protein and fat. You can bet that with all of these naturally occurring nutrients, there isn’t much left to add. Orijen Puppy contains zinc as its only supplement.
The last thing your puppy needs at this crucial stage of growth is a lot of unnecessary carbohydrates and fillers, such as potato or tapioca. Not only do they provide nothing for a growing dog nutritionally, they are also linked to obesity and diabetes. Orijen avoids high-glycemic foods such as these in favor of healthy fruits and vegetables like lentils, chickpeas and butternut squash that promote stable blood sugar levels. A few botanicals including chicory root and tumeric are also included, mimicking the natural diet and acting as toners and builders. You can set your mind at ease knowing that Orijen Puppy Food has all your pup’s nutritional bases covered.
