OUR BIOLOGICALLY APPROPRIATE PHILOSOPHY IS SIMPLE: MIRROR THE QUANTITY, FRESHNESS, AND VARIETY OF MEAT YOUR CAT HAS EVOLVED TO EAT.
With 40% richly nourishing protein, and 85% quality animal ingredients, ORIJEN nourishes cats of all breeds and life stages according to their evolutionary and biological needs.
2/3 of ORIJEN’s meat ingredients are FRESH (refrigerated, without preservatives) or RAW (flash-frozen, without preservatives), including the top 10 ingredients.
1/3 of meat is gently dried at 90°C to create a concentrated source of richly nourishing protein that cannot be supplied by fresh meat alone.
Nutrient-dense WholePrey ratios of fresh meat, organs, and cartilage or bone provide virtually every nutrient your cat needs to thrive.
Infusions of freeze-dried cod liver enhance flavour naturally, making ORIJEN deliciously tasty, even for fussy eaters.
ONLY 3 SUPPLEMENTS – ZINC, COPPER & CHOLINE
In nature there are no synthetic supplements, so cats derive their complete nutritional needs naturally by consuming whole animals, which contain all of the nutrients they need to thrive. That’s why you won’t find long lists of synthetics in ORIJEN cat foods. Loaded with richly nourishing ratios of fresh meat, organs, and cartilage or bone, plus fresh, whole fish and cage-free eggs, ORIJEN provides a natural source of virtually every nutrient your cat needs to thrive.
85% QUALITY ANIMAL INGREDIENTS | 15% VEGETABLES & FRUIT
Your cat shares her eating anatomy with the Near Eastern wildcat, which means she’s evolved for a diet rich and varied in fresh meat, protein, and fat – not highly processed carbohydrates and starches.
In nature, cat and wildcats meet their nutritional needs naturally by consuming whole prey animals and whole fish. Similarly, ORIJEN provides essential amino acids from natural and highly bio-available sources.
Botanicals mimic the natural diet, acting as tonics and builders to strengthen organs, aid digestion, and eliminate toxins by stimulating physiological processes, like cleansing the liver.
YOUR CAT IS UNIQUE
Your cat is unique and her feeding requirements will vary with her environment, age, and activity. That’s why we suggest starting with the guides below, and then monitoring her weight and adjusting portions as needed. Feed twice daily and remember to always keep fresh, clean water available.
† Use a standard 250ml/120g measuring cup. Serve dry or lightly moistened. See your veterinarian regularly. To help maintain freshness, we recommend sealing the bag tightly and storing it in a cool, dry location. ORIJEN Regional Red is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Cat Food Nutrient Profiles for all life stages.
By providing more calories from protein and fat (and fewer from carbohydrates), ORIJEN Regional Red distributes calories to mirror the natural feline diet, reducing the risk of obesity and diabetes. Metabolizable Energy is 4120 kcal/kg (535 kcal per 250ml/130g cup) with calories distributed to support peak conditioning; 40% from protein, 17% from vegetables and fruit, and 44% from fat.
OUR BIOLOGICALLY APPROPRIATE PHILOSOPHY
The Near Eastern wildcat is the ancestor and closest relative of all domestic cats. While years of breeding have produced different kinds of cats, the internal workings of wild and domestic cats remain unchanged, so it’s no surprise that their food requirements remain the same too. Our five Biologically Appropriate principles are simple and mirror the freshness and variety of meat that cats have evolved to eat.
RICH IN MEAT (85%) AND PROTEIN (40%)
All cats are adapted for a diet rich in meat and protein. Their sharp teeth and body mechanics is designed to metabolize protein and fat from meat. ORIJEN is created to nourish your cat or kitten according to her biological needs.
85% meat (2/3 FRESH or RAW and 1/3 gently dehydrated)
40% richly nourishing meat protein
15% farm-fresh vegetables and fruit
Our dried meats are prepared from fresh meat and dried at 90°C to create a concentrated source of nourishing meat protein that cannot be supplied by fresh meat alone
NO grains or gluten
HIGH MEAT INCLUSIONS
Meat is the foundation of award-winning ORIJEN foods.
2/3 of the meat ingredients are FRESH or RAW, supplying your cat with essential nutrients in their most natural and nourishing form
1/3 are dehydrated at a low temperature for a concentrated source of nourishing protein that cannot be supplied by fresh meat alone
AN ABUNDANT VARIETY OF MEAT
In nature, cats benefit from an assortment of meat. This variety is often lost in conventional cat foods which typically feature a single-animal ingredient, such as chicken or lamb, that is highly processed and seldom fresh. That’s why award-winning ORIJEN Regional Red features a rich diversity of fresh meat and wild-caught fish in Biologically Appropriate WholePrey ratios to nourish your cat’s peak health:
Ranch-raised beef from Alberta ranches
Wild boar from Alberta ranches
Ranch-raised bison from Alberta ranches
Grass-fed lamb from Alberta ranches
Yorkshire pork from Alberta farms
Whole, wild-caught pilchard from North Vancouver Island
WHOLEPREY MEAT RATIOS
