Rated 5 out of 5 by rocky This food saved my dog's life.
this past christmas, my 11 1/2 year old,overweight weinmaraner who had been on medication for his hip issues began bleeding internally. he had also been dealing with a bad flea infestation all fall. we thought he was done for. but the vet put him on an IV and lots of medication and allowed us to visit him every day - even on Christmas day. i started him on the Orijen food and he lost about 40 lbs - he is actually under 100lbs now and his coat is great where before it was always rough. he just turned 12 and is still hanging in there. i credit the food with most of his recovery. the quality of the food really made a huge difference to him. since then, i have convince my daughter and her father-in-law to put their elderly dogs on this food.
there was remarkable and noticable improvement in both of their dogs as well. i have my younger 6 year old weinmaraner on this food as well. i will never go back to the other less quality dog food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Josie424 Thank you for the sample
Thank you so much for the sample bag of orijen senior. I have ordered the adult formula(small bag)for my 11 year old lab with a sensitive stomach. I have fed solid gold for several years and no problems. I just have heard so many good things about orijen and recently lost his sibling at 10 years old and i want the best as long as I still have him. Tried the adult gradually and a few belly issues started so I backed off. When I received the free senior. I thought well, if nothing else I can use them as treats. Which I have, and they love it! Including the cat! He comes and grabs a morsel when he can. I'm feeding the senior and the solid gold dry half and half and #2 is looking pretty healthy so far. So I may eventually transition completely, haven't decided but it is a wonderfully made food and I highly recommend if your dogs system can tolerate the richness. And thank you so much chewy.com for your matchless customer service!!!we love you!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Thoughtsbecomethings 2 dogs having stomach upset on Kentucky bags
We have been feeding Orijen Senior and Six Fish and Acana limited ingredient foods for several years now. Our dogs have done very well on it up until this point in time. We have 2 indoor dogs that are experiencing diarrhea and 1 is vomitting. They did not get into anything they shouldn't have and are not outside unattended so I know it is not something from the environment. They do not have a parasitic infection. We did move recently but both dogs were intermittently having diarrhea before we moved. Our Golden has food allergies and has done very well on this food in the past and our senior dog has a beautiful shiny coat and a lot of energy for a 13 yr old. I don't know what changes they might have made to this but I am fairly certain no longer working for us. Maybe the higher protein raw ingredients are too rich? I'm not sure whether to stick to only Acana since it's less protein or change brands entirely.

Rated 3 out of 5 by LovingCasey Changed Formulation
My 17 yo Jack Russell thrived on Origen Sr for years. Once they moved the product to Kentucky, the formula changed and he was unable to tolerate the change. He is otherwise healthy. Great product, but wish company made changes to formulation more accessible to public.

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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by stlkatiep Solid product but...
Ordered Orijen Senior for my two larger dogs who are 75 and 100 lbs and 9 years old. One has stomach sensitivities. I do my research and Orijen has always gotten amazing reviews. Unfortunately, I learned more about the level of protein in this particular food and how it affects my pups. After a month, Jack was throwing up and not feeling well, even with the slow transition, and Max was eating grass, which he never does. We determined it was too rich for them and decided to look elsewhere at other brands. Be sure you pay attention to the protein contents, especially for those pups with sensitive tummies. I do think they had more energy, but not right after eating. I could just tell they did not feel good. Chewy was awesome as the second bag had already been sent off when we decided to switch foods. I called and was prepared to send it back, not having opened the box. Without question, they refunded my money and told me to donate it to a local shelter. Amazing customer service. So glad some local pups will benefit from some higher quality food. Thanks Chewy!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kristatx The BEST!
I have my 7 year old Rottweiler, Raven, on Orijen's Senior formula. First off, I like the fact that it's all natural and free from preservatives....next, Raven is on her 2nd 25lb bag. She loves it and loves dinnertime! Her coat is beautifully black and silky and her joint problems are gone! You have customers for life Chewy.com, we love you and your customer service is 2nd to NONE! THANK YOU!

Rated 1 out of 5 by gsd101 I expect more for this price
When spending almost $100 for a bag of dog food I don't think it is unreasonable to expect that the bag will be resealable. But for some reason this manufacturer seems to think that it is unnecessary to add a simple zip closure at the top of the bag. Now I know that there are airtight containers for holding food (and I have one) but I prefer to keep the food in it's original package and just zip the bag closed. Sometimes it's the small things that make a big differences, and for me, this is one of those small things.
