Orijen Tundra Freeze-Dried Dog Food
I had to keep smelling this food when I first opened it because it smells so good. I'm not sure what it is but it just smells really appetizing. I bought this, knowing it is very expensive, for only one of our four dogs. We have an aging Westie and I am just trying to do everything possible to boost his health via nutrition and supplements. He loves it, and I plan on continuing to purchase it in conjunction with other foods as well such as ZiwiPeak cans. We can't afford it on its own even for him alone, so I second what other reviewers have already said about the cost being highly prohibitive. It is clearly a great food and offers a high degree of convenience. The Orijen name also just carries with it a lot of reassurance about quality. If I wanted to feed this to all of our dogs, though, it would make more sense to home cook their meals... but then of course I couldn't order from the wonderful folks at Chewy! I should also add that comparable freeze dried medallion type foods at a comparable weight are the same or more in terms of cost, so I'm not surprised by what Orijen is charging for this.

My dogs love it!
I am very pleased with this product. I feed my dogs the Orijen Regional Red dry food. They like to have some wet food added to it, but I can not find a canned food as good as their kibble. When I saw this being offered I had to try it. Sure enough it is a huge hit. I use 1 medallion, soak it in about 1/4 cup warm water until it softens then split it between my 2 dogs bowls as a toppping on their dry kibble. They eat it up and lick their bowl clean. I will definitely be getting more.

My Dogs LOVE These!!!
I have four large dogs and I have always topped their kibble with canned food. I saw these medallions and decided to give them a try. What a huge hit! My Great Dane has a very sensitive digestive system so I have to be very careful - but boy does she LOVE these and they agree with her! They eat Blue Wilderness Salmon topped with these so no more cans! Everyone is happy!!!

Top notch food
I purchased this food for my 20 pound bichon who needs a primal diet. This is as good as it gets. The medallions are easily rehydrated with 4 tablespoons of warm water. He eats 3 medallions a day. Now do not get me wrong. Please read the label. I also have 2 young yellow labs weighing 75 pounds each. They eat Orijen also regional red and 6 fish kibble. These medallions of freeze dried would be too expensive to feed them every day. I do though recommend them as an occasional topper on their Orijen kibble. I believe Orijen to be the best food out on the market and believe me I have done my research. So if looking for a primal diet or just a nice topper for kibble this freeze dried food is the best!! The freeze dried treats are also fabulous which I purchase all the time. Will feed my pups nothing but Orijen and it shows. They are lean and healthy with soft shiny coats!! Just luv it!!

Great as a mix in
Pudge is a grazer and rarely eats a full meal. I wanted a super healthy topper I could add in to go with his regular food (Acana Pacifica). After the first meal we were sold! He is absolutely in LOVE with Tundra! He whines as soon as he smells it rehydrating. I completely understand other reviewer's thoughts on the price if this was the main source of food, but since it is only a topper for me it works out well. I only use a fourth of a medallion per meal. I love the Orijen/Acana brand and feel great giving this to my kid!

I have fed Orijen to my year and a half old rotti mix and year and a half old yorkie mix since we rescued them when they were pups. I have been a dog owner my whole life and always been involved in nutrition, both personally and professionally. When I lost my last dog to cancer I swore I would do everything in my power to prevent that happening to my future dogs....at least what I could control. The nutrition. Dogs, like any other mammal, thrive when they are provided with a complete amino acid profile in their diets. The best way to achieve this is by offering them different protein sources. I use the Orijen Adult kibble as a base and gave my dogs raw beef, lamb, duck, rabbit, pork, bison, pheasant, salt and freshwater fish, chicken, venison and so on...if your dog has allergies this may not be possible. My dogs do fantastic and look fantastic on this varied diet. When Orijen came out with the Tundra food I jumped on it...my dogs love it, they get multiple protein sources and my freezer space isn't jammed with their food.

"Scottie's love it ,but.........
Very expensive to feed as a meal. You only get about , maye 20 meldalons. For my scottie he needs four a day. Can't justify that much money a week/month!!
