Product Description

As dogs age, they become less efficient at metabolizing the very proteins vital to their well-being. As a result, appropriately high levels of dietary protein are essential for enabling your senior dog's peak conditioning. Orijen Grain-Free Senior Dog food is loaded with the protein-packed animal ingredients that Mother Nature intended all dogs to eat, including free-run chicken and turkey, whole eggs, wild-caught fish and regional fruits and vegetables. These world-class ingredients are all sustainably farmed or fished within Canada and arrive FRESH each day, so they're preservative-free, never frozen and loaded with the animal proteins and fats that nourish your older dog completely.

  • 25% fresh fruits, vegetables and botanicals

Orijen Dog Food

Biologically Appropriate Commitment

Dogs and cats are built like their ancestors, that's why all of Orijen's recipes are based on five Biologically Appropriate principals:

  • Rich and Varied in Fresh Whole Meats In nature, dogs benefit from a diversity of prey, so Orijen features meats, organs and cartilage from an assortment of cage-free poultry, free-range red meats and wild-caught fish.
  • Meat and Protein Rich Your dog is a carnivore, adapted for a diet rich in meat and protein. Orijen is loaded with 75-90% meat -- up to three times as much meat as conventional dog foods.
  • Carbohydrates Limited A dog's natural diet contains few, if any, carbohydrates. That's why Orijen replaces fast carbohydrates (such as potatoes and rice) with low-glycemic and regionally-sourced fruits and vegetables.
  • Fresh Fruits, Vegetables and Berries In place of cereal grains that spike blood sugars (such as rice and corn), Orijen features fresh orchard-grown fruits and vegetables that supply fiber and antioxidants in a natural form.
  • Botanicals Strengthen the Body and Spirit Providing an element of your dog's diet that he naturally craves, botanicals boost metabolism, strengthen organs and help cleanse the body of toxins.

Whole Prey Foods

In the wild, dogs consume the whole animal to meet their full dietary needs, so Orijen recipes incorporate three Whole Prey elements in specific ratios.

Meat | 70-85%

High meat inclusions means all amino acids are provided in natural form, without any synthetic supplements.

Edible Bone | 5-10%

5 to 10% bone, marrow and cartilage provide calcium, phosphorus, glucosamine and chondroitin in a natural source, without any artificial additives.

Organ Meat | 10-15%

10 to 15% fresh liver and tripe are a richly nourishing source of vitamins and minerals, including iron, zinc and vitamins A, B and D.

Fresh, Whole Food Ingredients

  • Licorice Root Licorice Root Supplies soluble fiber, soothes and nourishes the digestive tract, cleanses the colon and reduces insulin levels.
  • Cranberries and Blueberries Cranberries and Blueberries Rich in antioxidants, supports immunity and urinary health.
  • Angelica Root and Fenugreek Angelica Root and Fenugreek Supports digestion and provides protective antioxidants that defend the kidney against chronic damage.
  • Butternut Squash Butternut Squash Loaded with healthy fiber and a natural source of vitamins including B6 for immune support.

Quality Sustainable Ingredients

KNOW WHERE YOUR FOOD COMES FROM AND HOW IT'S RAISED. Orijen believes you have a right to know where the ingredients in your dog's food comes from. From nest-laid eggs and wild northern pike to juicy orchard-grown apples and crisp garden greens, each ingredient is sourced from local producers they know and trust.

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 313 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Simply Amazing. My Golden Retriever, Marley, just turned 7 years old January of 16'. He'd been on Wellness CORE(also great), but I wanted to give him a senior dog food to help him through his golden years and wellness didn't have that. So the search began, after looking at different pet store brands I wasn't impressed and came to chewy.com because I thought, "I buy so much on here anyways, why not?" Filtered down the search to what I was looking for and found the Orijen senior formula with 75% real meats, 25% fruits and veggies, low glycemic, grain free, and most importantly for Marley... Outstanding levels of glucosamine and chondroiton. I had made decision. Bought a 15lb bag of Orijen and when it arrived Marley sniffed the bag all over, in the 7 years I've had this dog he's never been one to eat dry dog food by itself, but he has eaten Orijen dry on a continuous basis. Just an amazing food, with awesome ingredients. Orijen knows what pets and pet parents want/need! Outstanding. May 3, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful! We switched our almost 11 year old Golden Retriever to Orijen Senior Grain-Free Dry Dog Food a little over a year ago and it has done wonders for her! We switched her from her previous food due to a bout of stomach issues, not to mention she can be quite picky. Her local Vet had recommended putting her on a special Rx diet, but we wanted to lean more towards a wholesome diet. Especially after looking at the ingredients in the Rx food. After much research and recommendations from a local pet shop, Orijen seemed to be a great fit for all of her needs! Since she has been on Orijen, not only has her stomach issues resided, but her overall appearance and energy levels are great! There was definitely a noticeable difference before and after we started her on Orijen. She absolutely loves it! We continue to order from Chewy, because the prices are great and the autoship feature is simply amazing. I love having her food delivered right to our front door! April 7, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Well Worth every dime! Our golden retriever was turning 7 years old. She started getting these nodules on her front ankles and they were getting bigger and she started limping. Took her to the vet, couldn't really see anything in the x-rays, maybe a little arthritis he says. So of course, out came the pain pills. Which she would have to take the rest of her life. Well, I, myself usually don't like to take medicine all the time; and I certainly wasn't going to make my part of the family take them either. So we started looking around for alternatives. Since, starting her on Orijen, she's not limping any more and she acts like a lively younger "puppy" dog again. Thanks so much. It's a little expensive, but well worth it. P.S. Her nodules have reduced in size also! May 7, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by first class and yummy too! I bought this for my almost 15 yr old black lab, Buddy. Before buying I chatted with an extremely knowledgeable and helpful Orijen rep. It turns out this dog food has way more glucosamine and chondroitin than the Hills J/D food that most vets recommend for older arthritic dogs. We've had it for almost 2 weeks and Buddy has instantly chowed down the whole bowlful every time. He never does that with healthy food! The food has a pretty strong fishy odor which I'm sure Buddy loves. The bag is not resealable and fortunately I had a resealable J/D bag to try to maintain the fresh smell and taste. I am not very price sensitive when it comes to Buddy's food but I will be saving about 50% off the cost of the J/D. The bags are similarly priced, but the recommended feeding amount for the Orijen is half that of the J/D, presumably because it is so packed with protein and other goodies. One downside is that Buddy's poop is a little darker and pastier than normal. I haven't talked about this with my vet yet and I'm not too concerned at this point. I just switched to two lighter feeding times per day rather than one and that seems to have helped a bit so far. I wish I had found this sooner but I only recently started shopping online seriously. Orijen seems like a first class brand. We're happy to call Orijen our new dog food! May 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by My 16 year old Shih-Tzu/Lhasa loves this food! Over the last several years, our now 16 year old Shih-Tzu/Lhasa has had food sensitivities (itching and redness) lower energy and his coat was beginning to thin. I tried several grain-free dog foods that have helped some, but when we started him on Orijen Senior, he not only loves the food, but his itching and redness cleared up and he has energy like when he was a puppy! I did not gradually switch to it, and he had no negative reactions to it. We are thrilled with this product, it's worth the extra $$ to have a healthy pet again! May 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by He likes this one I'm glad after trying sever brands of Origen foods that my dog likes the senior brand. It seems it helps his allergys to he is 11 years old and very picky. May 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Grain-free Senior Dog Food I have been looking for years to find a grain-free senior dog food. My girl is 9 years old and I try to keep her in good physical condition. She has had both ACL's repaired over the years and joint supplements are a must. I love that this is a 5 Star food with added vitamins and minerals. I'd like to slowly remove her other supplements from her diet and rely solely on this food. This will justify the high price. Also, she is 75-80lbs and has been maintaining her weight and high energy levels on 2 cups a day of Orijen Senior. Even though she is a senior, she still runs with me and goes to the dog park and doggie daycare. May 12, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Orijen Senior Dog Food I ordered this dog food because my senior dog is getting very picky about his dry food. This was expensive and I hoped with no grain products in it he would eat it easily. I think it probably is a real good dog food, but I can't really know. This might not be a very fair review but I'm not sure of any other way to tell you how it is, unless I eat it myself. But I do want to say the delivery and customer service is always excellent with Chewy.com. May 11, 2016
