Rated 5 out of 5 by Jane Still trying to get my cat to eat this by itself
The ingredients of this food (Cat and Kitten formula) are excellent. While still rather high in carbohydrates, I was told the glycemic index is only 2 which is good to try to help prevent or manage diabetes. I was looking for a good dry food to feed my new 1 1/2 year old cat. I recently lost a cat to complications from diabetes. I would like to get this cat on wet food only, as recommended by many vets, but so far, he is not too willing. In the meantime, Orijen is the best I can do with the dry food, I think. I mix it with his current Purina "True Nature 45% protein" formula which is 19.6% carbs--too high in my opinion.
Chewy is a great company and by talking with Megan from Orijen, I was able to feel more comfortable with this particular dry food and the hopes of avoiding diabetes in this cat. While you may think it is expensive, try syringes, insulin and vet visits. My goal is avoid that at all costs. Also, all Orijen fish are wild caught---also a big plus for me. Now, if he will just learn to love it!!
TXS Megan and Chewy!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by simbelmyne The best dry food there is
Bottom line - I feed my cat a combination of wet and dry food, because dry food simply does not offer enough moisture in their diet. I'm now doing 50/50 and may switch to 80 wet and 20 dry in the future.
Meanwhile, although I'm only feeding about 30-40 grams of dry food per day, orijen is the best dry food possible. The ingredients are top-notch. My cat enjoys this food and always comes running when I put it in his bowl. He has never had any gastrointestinal issues (hopefully never will) with any food and is generally not picky. But after 2 weeks of feeding orijen and more wet food, I did notice that his coat is silkier and shinier than 1 month before. He's also really energetic and poops just fine. 1 15-lb bag will last a REALLY long time because I don't need to feed that much. I'm very comfortable feeding orijen to my cat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Alex You wont find better dry food
After carefully researching many dry cat food brands we found Orijen to be the very best there is. This food is so high quality that its healthier then about 75-85% of human food in the stores! So don't be put off by the price. Its completely worth if you want the best for your cats health. Just go on Orijen's website if you want to read the details on the lengths they go to make this product as healthy as possible.
Our 10 year old Egyptian Mau mix refuses to touch wet food. So we are glad that she at least loves to eat the healthiest dry food out there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 4theloveofkitties The very best!!
I have 5 cats on the chicken formula. They LOVE it!! When I read some of the complaints about the price, I have to laugh! Of course it's higher priced, you are paying for the QUALITY!! You end up having healthier cats, that require less of this food, because it is formulated properly! If you eat healthier, you require less, which leads to less ihealth related issues! In my opinion, you spend about the same because this food does not cause all the issues that cheap food does! I also supplement with very high quality wet food. My cats drink plenty of water, and when I purchased a fountain for them, 4 years ago, they drink plenty! Do not pay attention to negative reviews about price or smell. I clean my litter boxes 2x a day, and i have no issues. I rescue, foster, and have a vet in my family, so I know everything I do for my precious kitties is top notch! The kitties, and the humans, reap the rewards of quality, loving care!! Thanks Chewy!! =)

by 3Catdaddy If you love your cat, you will feed her Origins!
Common catfood brands are the pet food equivalent of junk food. Why do we think that we can feed carnivores food high in simple carbohydrates? That's a guarantee of future health problems and vet bills. Due to the high protein levels, our cats actually eat less of this food than other brands, meaning it meets their nutrition requirements without filling up on empty calories. Our cats have been Origins kitties for a long time and we will not compromise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Manreb Very high quality dry cat food
This is an extremely high quality product. Did my research, consulted with our Vet and found that the ingredients are obtained from animals raised in organic farms or fish caught in pristine waters from Canada. I have been feeding my 5 month old Ragdoll kitten this food for the past 3 months and she loves it. She has a beautiful coat and skin and lots of energy.My Vet said that investing in good food will save you in disease issues as she gets older; so it is a good investment to spend the extra money on top quality food for your pet. I also give her high quality wet food as well.
