READ OUR INGREDIENTS AND WE THINK YOU’LL AGREE.
ALTHOUGH THEY MAY LOOK VERY DIFFERENT, YOUR DOG SHARES HIS EATING ANATOMY WITH THE GREY WOLF — WHICH MEANS HE’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 dog, ORIJEN 6 Fish for DOGS is loaded with a diversity of nourishing fish proteins and oils, but is limited in carbohydrate.
RICH in FISH and PROTEIN | 80% / 38%
ORIJEN 6 Fish is made with a full 80% of premium fish from wild-caught freshwater and saltwater fish. These high fish inclusions produce a Biologically Appropriate protein level of 38%, which replicates the natural diet and nourishes your dog according to his anatomical adaptation to meat protein.
RICH in FISH OILS | 18%
Animal fats and oils are essential for the peak health of all dogs — 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 pet food makers, over 80% of the fats in ORIJEN occur naturally from high inclusions of fresh never-frozen fish.
DHA & EPA from FRESH FISH | 1.0% / 0.6%
Fresh fish is a perfect source of highly digestible and Biologically Appropriate DHA and EPA Omega-3 fatty acids. Essential for your dog’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% / 25%
Your dog’s natural diet contains very few, if any, grains or carbohydrates. That’s why Biologically AppropriateORIJEN is grain-free and contains less than half the carbohydrates found in conventional dog foods.
LIMITED CALCIUM & PHOSPHORUS | 1.6% / 1.4%
The potential oversupply of calcium and phosphorus in high-protein dog foods is cause for concern. High inclusions of chicken meal, fish meal or turkey meal used to increase protein levels also provide a rich source of minerals and push calcium and phosphorus levels to the upper allowable limits of, respectively, 2.5% and 1.6%.
GLUCOSAMINE & CHONDROITIN | 1250mg / 1000mg
ORIJEN‘s high ratios of fresh fish provide a rich source of glucosamine and chondroitin, which is derived naturally from the fresh meat ingredients — without adding synthetic ingredients to the formula.
VETERINARIAN SELECTED BOTANICALS
Providing the element of your dog’s natural diet that he craves when foraging for grasses and weeds, ORIJEN‘s veterinarian-selected botanicals help support your dog’s metabolism, strengthen his organs, and serve as cleansers to rid his body of toxins.
ORIJEN 6 Fish is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Dog Food Nutrient Profiles for ALL LIFE STAGES.
