Orijen 6 Fish Grain-Free Formula Dry Dog Food
Fabulous Results on our Rescue
We acquired a second German Shepherd puppy who had been fed very cheap (generic brand) dog food. I gasped when I read the ingredients, the first several being various forms of corn, and the protein being "meat by-products." I was told she ate like a horse, yet she was very bony. She also had several bald spots where she bit and chew her itchy skin, and her fur felt dry and stiff like wire.
Our other GSD has been on Orijen Large Breed Puppy, but, because of the rescue's apparent skin issues, we decided to put her on 6-Fish. Not only has she gained a healthy 7 pounds of muscle, her bald spots are gone, and she no longer bites at her skin. Her coat is also softer and very shiny #see photo.# Our vet is impressed by how much she's improved in just a matter of weeks - I gave all the credit to Orijen 6-fish!

The absolute best dog food money can buy....
I am a scientist and I will not use a product unless I do thorough research. My black lab is 2 1/2 years old and goes crazy when it is time to eat. His skin is super healthy and his fur feels like cashmere! I am in cancer research and I know that diet plays an important role in reducing risk. I will never change his food nor will I change the place in which I buy it. Chewy.com's customer service is excellent. My baby Jag is worth every penny this food costs. How can you put a $ value on health anyway?

The Best of the Best
Simply put, if you want a sleek, vibrant and healthy pet, feed Orijen products. I use Orijen Fish Dry Dog Food for my 4 canine friends, and it successfully minimizes skin issues that, prior to them eating Orijen, were driving them crazy, and draining my checkbook for vet bills. Yes, this is expensive food, but you get what you pay for (and you feed less of this than foods loaded with fillers). The first ingredient is salmon. The others are equally healthy additions. No grain. My dogs have virtually no flatulence, and their stools are compact and have minimal odor. Their coats shine like wet seals.... try it, you'll love it!

A great food for my pup
I am a vet with a rescue Labrador. The big question for me when selecting a food was not what she would like (she's a Lab, we have yet to find what she doesn't like), but what would really bring out her best. The best is defined as that slick, really shiny coat, enough protein to keep her active all day, and ingredients I could trust. Orijen gets all their ingredients from Canada and doesn't source from China. The protein content is from real, high-quality sources - the food is such high-quality that you don't have to feed very much to get your calorie requirements met, so keep that in mind. And her coat always looks beautiful! We get many comments on she fabulous coat. When we switched to something else briefly, the coat was still lovely, but not as shiny from those great fish fats!

The perfect food for Siberian Huskies!
I have 2 very hard working Siberian Huskies that mush and run year round. These pups are a high energy breed that is notorious for having digestive issues. Siberians were actually bred for thousands of years in the Arctic and thus were fed mainly fish, seal blubber, and reindeer meat. This grain-free fish based kibble is the closest you can come to their natural diet in a prepared dog food! The high protein percentage is also very important for working dogs. I would highly recommend this food for any Northern breed. It may seem expensive, but since there is no filler, you will find your dog needs less food. And with the elimination of digestive issues, a healthier dog means fewer vet bills!
(An interesting note: the same company also produces Arcana fish based dog food for dogs that get less exercise. It has a lower percentage of protein, but the same high-quality ingredients.)

Best dry food out there!
I've been feeding my Mini Poodle the Orijen 6-Fish for a few years now... his coat is amazing, no dental issues, has never had an ear infection, never stinks and has small poo. An amazing food and will never switch to other foods again!!

Excellent Healthy Dog Food
I have a white boxer who is allergic to everything under the sun...seriously...chicken, poultry fat, beets, carrots, peas, milk, oats...among others. Needless to say I've done a lot of label reading! It's hard to find a good dog food that doesn't have one of those ingredients that is also all natural. My boxer is also allergic to a number of preservatives and additives. This dog food is the best, not only is it healthy and free of all the things she's allergic to..she LOVES it!!! This is the best dog food I've ever encountered! :)

I have a blind 5 year old French Bulldog who has an autoimmune deficiency so we have struggled with food allergies for several years and it's the reason he suddenly went blind at the age of 2. His ears developed black skin (thick scabs) on just the inside ear flap to start, but continued to get progressively worse and spread to the outside of the ear causing him to lose the hair and become painful. You could peel large sections of the black skin "scabs" off when they got really thick.
I have tried so many different types of dog foods and even the raw foods that are supposed to be "the best" for him did nothing...my vet had me try all sorts of different medications and creams from tea tree oil, vitamin E and several prescriptions to no avail. She ran all sorts of tests for mange, mites, etc. and came up with just dermatitis.
I felt so bad for him!! Out of desperation, I once again went on the internet looking for some help and researched more dog foods and found Orijen Six Fish. My first thought was that is was costly, but at this point I wanted to try anything that might help. Chewys.com offered a discount as a first time customer and I signed up for auto ship so super convenient right to my door!
After 4 weeks we started noticing an improvement, the black was much lighter and now after 3 months the black is completely gone!! We are absolutely thrilled and amazed by the results!! I have attached a before and after picture so you can see for yourself!
The food is so high quality that you feed less so I'm actually spending less money on dog food with superior results AND it's delivered to my door - can't get much better than that! I will never look for another dog food and highly recommend this food to anyone - it's a superior product!
