Rated 4 out of 5 by mz31 expensive but picky cat gobbles it up
my cat was rejecting the dry w/d formula he was prescribed to counteract antibiotic-triggered diarrhea, tried this because it packs more calories in smaller portions and i was hoping he would not only be able to digest it but even actually like it. sure enough, he is happy to eat it, and the diarrhea hasn't returned despite the dietary change. (i'm mixing it with the wet w/d for dinner as i don't want him on a pure dry diet and he's still willing to eat that (as long as the orijen is sprinkled on top), unfortunately i have yet to find another wet food besides the w/d that doesn't bring back the diarrhea). he's already gained a bit of weight and his poops look the healthiest they have in a long time. my only complaint is the absurdly high price, even more expensive than the already-expensive prescription food. if not for health concerns i would probably just stick with taste of the wild and natural balance l.i.d., which is what i feed my other cat and used to feed this cat. but as it stands i'm happy to have found a food that has made him more enthusiastic about eating.

by BabyBoo Excellent Quality -It has helped a lot with my cat with stomatitis-
My rescued Cat suffered from severe stomatitis. When we got her from the shelter we started feeding her grain free wet foods. After she went through the teeth extraction surgery we started feeding her Origin and she recovered her weight and her fur got much better. She was 4 pounds when we adopted her and a year later she was 11 pounds. Grain free foods are a MUST for cats with stomatitis. We still feed her wet food but she enjoys the Origin dry food. If you have a cat with stomatitis, please make sure that ALL teeth are pulled and roots are 100% extracted if (steroids are just a temporary relieve). She is a happy a healthy cat now her name is BabyBoo.

Overall, the Orijen products are great products and I had success with my picky cat liking this flavor. Haven't tried the others yet although I am interested in the chicken/turkey based one next. There are benefits to each one. I want to try and mix or alternate between this and the chicken or regional red along with their canned food. This one in particular is high in omega 3's with DHA and EPA versus the omega's 6 that most products contain. Omega 3's are only found in fish and some in flaxseed and walnut. Omega 3, particularly the DHA and EPA helps decrease inflammation. Meaning higher doses of omega 3's could actually help allergies, skin problems, asthma and digestive problems like IBS. The other formula I like particularly because it includes whole prey, cartilege and even chicken or turkey heart. You don't see many products that go in this direction. The only thing I maybe was hesitant was the longer ingredients of the other stuff like the vegetable stuff, etc. Although, it's not really concerning or anything, I am sure there is a reason they added it just as they did with the heart and cartilege in the other formula.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tom1988 Excellent high quality cat food.
Great high end cat food with none of the unhealthy bi-products and fillers found in standard foods. Organic and single sourced. Have never had a bad experience with Orijen line. Our nine year old cat loves it and has been eating it most of his life. He is very active and healthy and has never had digestive or weight problems.

I use Orijen brand exclusively in my household. I live with a large dog and 2 very spirited cats. With all the scary recalls that happen with pet food, I feel confident serving this brand. Top notch pet food for a slightly above affordable price, which is the only downside. Large variation of price when compared across the Orijen brand flavor line for the same size bag.

It took a day or 2 to for my cat to warm up to the new food. But he loves it now. I give him 2 feedings a day. I would purchase this item again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by cbrosado Stinks worse than the litterbox!
My cat likes this food. We purchased the Orijen Red the first time around, and she liked that as well. We just decided to mix it up so she could get a change of flavors with each purchase. However, the moment I opened the bag, my house reeked of fish! As in dirty fish market, past the sell by date for freshness fish. My husband walked through the door and started gagging! We still use it, because for the price, who can afford to throw it out...but I will definitely not be purchasing this flavor again and do not recommend it to anyone else either.
