READ OUR INGREDIENTS AND WE THINK YOU’LL AGREE.
ALTHOUGH THEY MAY LOOK VERY DIFFERENT, YOUR CAT OR KITTEN SHARES HER EATING ANATOMY WITH THE LEOPARD — WHICH MEANS SHE’S EVOLVED AS A CARNIVORE AND ADAPTED FOR A DIET RICH IN MEAT — NOT CARBOHYDRATES AND GRAINS.
Based on this biological fact, and to produce a nutritional analysis that mirrors the diet Mother Nature would provide for your cat or kitten, ORIJEN 6 FISH for CATS is loaded with a diversity of nourishing fish proteins and oils, but is limited in carbohydrate.
RICH in FISH and PROTEIN | 80% / 42%
ORIJEN 6 FISH for CATS is made with a full 80% of meat from wild-caught fish. These high fish inclusions produce a Biologically Appropriate protein level of 42%, which replicates the natural diet and nourishes your cat or kitten according to her anatomical adaptation to protein from meat.
RICH in FISH OILS | 20%
Animal fats and oils are essential for the peak health of all cats — that’s why ORIJEN is free of plant oils and only features fats of premium animal source. Instead of the highly-processed rendered fats used by conventional cat food makers, over 90% of the fats in ORIJEN occur naturally from high inclusions of fresh never-frozen fish.
DHA & EPA from FRESH FISH | 0.7% / 0.4%
Fresh fish is a perfect source of highly digestible and Biologically Appropriate DHA and EPA Omega-3 fatty acids. Essential for your cat’s immune and nervous systems, as well as a glowing skin and hair coat, these richly nourishing fatty acids are not available from plant oils such as flax, coconut or sunflower.
GRAIN-FREE & CARBOHYDRATE LIMITED | 0% / 20%
Your cat’s natural diet contains very few, if any, grains or carbohydrates. That’s why Biologically Appropriate ORIJEN is free of grain and contains less than half the carbohydrates found in conventional cat foods.
NATURAL SOURCE TAURINE | 0.25%
ORIJEN’s high ratios of fresh fish provide a rich source of taurine, which is derived naturally from the fresh fish ingredients — without adding synthetic ingredients to the formula.
GLUCOSAMINE & CHONDROITIN | 1400mg / 1000mg
ORIJEN’s high ratios of fresh fish provide a rich source of glucosamine and chondroitin, which is derived naturally from the fresh fish ingredients — without adding synthetic ingredients to the formula.
VETERINARIAN SELECTED BOTANICALS
Providing the element of your cat’s natural diet that she craves when foraging for grasses and weeds, ORIJEN’s veterinarian-selected botanicals help support your cat’s metabolism, strengthen her organs, and serve as cleansers to rid her body of toxins.
ORIJEN 6 FISH for CATS is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Cat Food Nutrient Profiles for ALL LIFE STAGES.

6 FISH CAT
A BIOLOGICALLY APPROPRIATE CALORIE DISTRIBUTION
There are three sources of calories available to your large breed puppy:
protein, fat and carbohydrates. While protein and fat are essential for your
puppy; carbohydrates are not. In fact, puppies require absolutely no
carbohydrate in their diet.
Simple carbohydrates from cereal grains such as rice or corn cause blood sugar
levels to elevate and fluctuate and when not used for energy, carbohydrates are
quickly and easily stored in the body as fat. Indeed, excess carbohydrates are
the leading dietary cause of overweight conditions in puppies of all breeds.
By providing more calories from protein and fat, and fewer calories from
carbohydrates, ORIJEN provides a calorie distribution that mirrors your puppy’s
natural diet — promoting a long and happy life by helping reduce the risk of
obesity, insulin resistance and diabetes.

OUR INGREDIENT PHILOSOPHY | FRESH and REGIONAL
Because we believe cat lovers want to know where the ingredients in their cat’s
food come from, we don’t buy the inexpensive, bulk commodity ingredients found
in conventional cat foods.
Instead, we use ingredients that are sustainably raised within our region by
people we know and trust, approved ‘fit for human consumption’ and then
delivered to our door FRESH.
And because all cats are carnivores — evolved to thrive on a varied diet rich in
meats, with smaller amounts of fruits, vegetables and grasses — ORIJEN 6 FISH
for CATS features a Biologically Appropriate (80.20.0) ingredient ratio of 80%
fish, 20% fruit and vegetables, and 0% grain — all slow-cooked at low
temperatures to retain their natural goodness.
