Biologically Appropriate For All Life Stages

Fresh Pacific Pilchard, Hake, Mackerel, Flounder, Rockfish & Sole


Packed with fresh, sustainable, and wild-caught fish from Vancouver Island to satisfy your cat's biological need for a protein-rich diet.

  • With 85% quality animal ingredients and 42% protein, ORIJEN recipes mirror the diet that your cat has evolved to eat.
  • 2/3 of ORIJEN's fish are FRESH (refrigerated, no preservatives) or RAW (flash-frozen, no preservatives), including the top six fish ingredients.
  • 1/3 of fish are gently dried at 90°C from fresh, whole fish to create a concentrated source of richly nourishing protein that cannot be supplied by fresh fish alone.
  • Nutrient-dense fresh whole fish (including meat and bone) provide virtually every nutrient your cat needs to thrive.
  • Generous infusions of freeze-dried cod liver enhance flavour naturally, making ORIJEN deliciously tasty, even for fussy eaters.
