PUPPY | BIOLOGICALLY APPROPRIATE DOG FOOD

PUPPIES OF ALL BREEDS EVOLVED AS CARNIVORES, POSSESSING A BIOLOGICAL NEED FOR A DIET RICH AND VARIED IN FRESH WHOLE MEATS, WITH SMALLER AMOUNTS OF WHOLE FRUITS, VEGETABLES AND GRASSES

That’s why ORIJEN delivers a symphony of cage-free chicken and turkey, nest-laid eggs, and wild-caught walleye and herring — all raised or fished within our region and delivered to our kitchens FRESH EACH DAY, so they’re brimming with goodness to perfectly nourish the growth of puppies.

Loaded with the richly-nourishing proteins and fats that all puppies require for peak health, ORIJEN’s award-winning low-glycemic puppy food supports lean muscle mass while supplying all of the energy your puppy needs to take on his exciting world.

Prepared from Canada’s best and freshest ingredients in our award-winning kitchens, ORIJEN is guaranteed to keep your puppy happy, healthy and strong.

READ OUR INGREDIENTS AND WE THINK YOU’LL AGREE

YOUR PUPPY SHARES HIS EATING ANATOMY WITH THE WOLF, WHICH MEANS HE’S EVOLVED AS A CARNIVORE, ADAPTED FOR A DIET RICH AND VARIED IN MEAT (NOT CARBOHYDRATES AND GRAINS).

MEAT AND PROTEIN RICH
Made with 80% meat ORIJEN features a Biologically Appropriate protein level of 38% which closely replicates the natural puppy diet.

RICH IN ANIMAL FAT 
Animal fats are essential for peak health. That’s why ORIJEN features naturally occurring, non-rendered fats from fresh poultry, fish and eggs.

DHA AND EPA FROM FRESH FISH
Fresh fish is a perfect source of DHA and EPA, essential for your puppy’s immune and nervous systems and not available from plant source, such as flax, coconut or sunflower.

LOW GLYCEMIC 

Your puppy’s natural diet contains few carbohydrates. That’s why ORIJEN is potato-free and contains less than half the carbohydrates found in 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.

Feeding & Nutrition



FEEDING
 |
PUPPY

THERE ARE THREE SOURCES OF CALORIES AVAILABLE TO YOUR PUPPY: PROTEIN, FAT AND
CARBOHYDRATES. WHILE PROTEIN AND FAT ARE ESSENTIAL, CARBOHYDRATES ARE NOT. IN
FACT, PUPPIES REQUIRE NO CARBOHYDRATE IN THEIR DIET.



Fast carbohydrates from rice, corn, potato or tapioca elevate blood sugar and
are quickly stored in the body as fat, and are a leading dietary cause of
overweight puppies.



By providing more calories from protein and fat (and fewer from carbohydrates),
ORIJEN distributes calories to mirror the natural puppy diet, reducing the risk
of obesity and diabetes.



CALORIE CONTENT AND DISTRIBUTION

ME (calculated metabolizable energy) is 4080 kcal/kg (490 kcal per 250ml/120g
cup).

Calories are distributed to support peak physical conditioning with 37% from
protein, 19% from fruits and vegetables, and 44% from fat.



YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT, AS THE ADAGE GOES. THE SAME IS TRUE FOR YOUR PUPPY.



ORIJEN mirrors the foods Mother Nature intended puppies to eat. Equally
important is the natural taste, after all, puppies deserve to enjoy their meals
too.



Your puppy is a unique individual and his feeding requirements will vary with
his breed, environment, age and activity. That’s why we suggest starting with
the guides below, and then monitoring his weight and adjusting portions as
needed. Feed twice daily and remember to always keep fresh, clean water
available to your puppy.
