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!

by Chimom Chi loves it
I did my research and knew this was an excellent healthy dog food from a wonderful manufacturer but it did not come in small bites so I was not sure if my newly adopted six and a half pd rescue chi already missing some teeth would accept it. I figured I would try a bag and if she didn't take to it I could donate
and it would not go to waste. Well she took a sniff and loved it. No problem with the size of the kibble as she just Wolfs them down dry with no problem. A couple of weeks on the food and what a difference in her appearance. She filled out beautifully and looks so much healthier. This is a quality organic food and well worth the money.

Rated 1 out of 5 by NYDoggies My Westies LOVE, but I don't
My two Westies inhale this food the second I put it down. Even though I brush their teeth, Orijen makes their breath smell like my dead Nana. I used to love their breath—even though my mom told me to never tell anyone that. Now it makes me gag from across the room. And the food smells terrible. Since we started this food, both of my dogs poo non-stop. My boy has had several accidents over night where I wake up to the awful stench of his massive poos. He used to only poo once a day. It's supposed to be the best quality of food, but I'm not loving the smelly messes it creates.

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 5 out of 5 by SJBURF She LOVES it!!!
First a little background. We have a soon to be 12 year old doodle. My [previous] supplier never said Boo about a "Senior" Orijen product -- I found it and Chewy reading a dog food review. That said: ==
We've introduced the Senior blend 1/2&1/2 with her previous "regular" Orijen blend...She loves it. Once done with our current 1/2&1/2 supply it will move totally to the Senior Orijen and we'll be ordering it from Chewy because they make it SO easy......

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 5 out of 5 by Ambroshis Best food on the market!
I have fed my chow chow/pit mix nothing but organic foods. He is 11 years old, but everyone swears that he is only 4 at best. This food is the best on the market!
