Just like their ancestor, the grey wolf, all dogs are meant to eat a diet rich and varied in whole animal ingredients. ORIJEN Original is made with meat, organs, cartilage, and bone from free-run chicken and turkey, wild-caught fish, and cage-free eggs that are delivered to our kitchen. Two-thirds of our animal ingredients are FRESH or RAW, for a concentrated source of protein. With richly nourishing protein and infusions of freeze-dried liver, this recipe nourishes your dog as nature intended while offering them a flavour that they’ll love.
