Biologically Appropriate For All Life Stages

Fresh Free-Run Chicken & Turkey, Cage-Free Eggs, And Wild-Caught Fish

 


 

Cats and kittens are built like their ancestors, possessing a biological need for a diet rich and varied in animal protein.

  • With 40% richly nourishing protein from quality animal ingredients, ORIJEN nourishes cats and kittens according to their evolutionary and biological needs.
  • 2/3 of ORIJEN's meat is FRESH (refrigerated, no preservatives) or RAW (flash-frozen, no preservatives), including the top 10 ingredients.
  • 1/3 of meat ingredients are gently dehydrated at 90°C from fresh, free-run chicken & turkey, and wild-caught fish to create a concentrated source of nourishing protein that cannot be supplied by fresh meat alone.
  • Nutrient-dense WholePrey ratios of fresh meat, organs, and cartilage or bone, plus wild-caught fish and cage-free eggs provide a natural source of virtually every nutrient your cat or kitten needs.
  • Generous infusions of gently freeze-dried liver enhance flavour and palatability naturally, making ORIJEN deliciously tasty, even for choosy eaters.
