ORIJEN Large Breed Puppy Food
If your little pup is someday going to be a very large dog, he has specific nutritional needs that don’t necessarily apply to smaller breed puppies. ORIJEN Large Breed Puppy Food is made with these in mind, on top of the usual qualities ORIJEN brings to the table, like biologically appropriate ingredients and an all-natural formula. Backed up by extensive research and strict standards of quality, you can trust that ORIJEN Large Breed Puppy Food is the perfect food to get your pup off to the right start.
The American College of Veterinary Nutrition recommends that large breed puppies have a diet with an ideal mineral ratio and moderate energy intake. ORIJEN Large Breed Puppy Food’s formula is carefully calculated to reflect these needs: the energy content is lower than usual so that excessive calories don’t cause improper growth, and the calcium and phosphorus ratio is within the optimal range for these big pups. In addition, with 38% protein, this dog food gives large breed puppies enough protein to develop their significant muscle mass. Your puppy will love this delicious, meaty meal designed specifically for his growing body.
In every 13 pound bag of ORIJEN Large Breed Puppy Food, there is over 11 pounds of nutrient-packed animal ingredients, including free-run chicken and turkey, wild-caught fish and whole eggs. Because dogs’ digestive systems and nutritional needs have evolved very little over the years, this diet is made to reflect the meals of your puppy’s wild ancestor, the wolf. Full of meat, with no grains and a small amount of healthy fruits, vegetables and botanicals, this food is about as natural as it can get. Following Mother Nature’s example, it features animal ingredients in wholeprey ratios so that nutrient-rich organs and edible bones don’t go to waste. This practice of including more than just the meat means that ORIJEN Large Breed Puppy Food doesn’t need lots of additional supplements to meet your puppy’s required nutrition levels – only zinc is added.
The proper nutrition will give your growing pup the foundation for a happy, healthy life. Take advantage of this crucial life stage to ensure that your furry best friend is around for a long time. Try ORIJEN Large Breed Puppy Food for a great nutritional start.

MEAT AND PROTEIN RICH
Made with 85% premium meat ingredients, ORIJEN Puppy features a richly nourishing and Biologically Appropriate™ protein level of 38% to closely replicate your puppy’s natural diet.
RICH IN ANIMAL FAT
To fuel optimum growth and development, all puppies require richly nourishing animal fats. That’s why ORIJEN Puppy features naturally occurring non-rendered fats from our unmatched fresh poultry, fish and egg ingredients.
DHA AND EPA FROM FRESH FISH
Fresh saltwater fish are a Biologically Appropriate™ source of DHA and EPA, which are essential for your puppy’s developing immune and nervous systems. DHA and EPA are not available from plant sources, such as flax, coconut or sunflower.
Your puppy’s natural diet contains few if any carbohydrates. That’s why ORIJEN is free of high-glycemic ingredients like potato and tapioca, and contains less than half the carbohydrates of conventional puppy 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.
