Biologically Appropriate For All Life Stages

Fresh Ranch-Raised Beef, Wild Boar, Bison, Grass-Fed Lamb & Yorkshire Pork

 


 

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.

 


 

IS YOUR CAT'S FOOD BIOLOGICALLY APPROPRIATE?

Cats are hunters and, just like their wild cousins, their teeth, jaws, and digestive system are all adapted for meat-concentrated diets that are rich in fresh meat and meat diversity. Biologically Appropriate cat foods mirror the natural diet and answer three meat questions:

HOW MUCH?

  • 85% MEAT INCLUSIONS
  • ORIJEN leads its class in premium meat inclusions.
  • All from animals from federally inspected facilities prior to inclusion in our foods.

HOW FRESH?

  • 2/3 of meats are FRESH or RAW and loaded with goodness.
  • 1/3 is dried at low temperature for a premium protein source.

HOW MANY?

  • 6 DIFFERENT ANIMALS IN WHOLEPREY RATIOS
  • A variety of meats in WholePrey ratios supply nutrients naturally, dramatically reducing the need for synthetic suppleents.
    • Ranch-Raised Beef
    • Wild Boar
    • Ranch-Raised Bison
    • Grass-Fed Lamb
    • Yorkshire Pork
    • Whole Wild-Caught Pilchard

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.
