Answer by ChewySep 15, 2021
This recipe features 8 health benefits including: immune support, muscle maintenance, joint health, digestive health, healthy skin and coat, aids brain function, eye health and heart health.

Where is this product made and processed?
Answer by ChewyAug 09, 2021
This recipe is made in the USA. ORIJEN's focus when sourcing ingredients has always been on using ingredients from suppliers they know and trust. Part of this commitment is choosing suppliers with the technical expertise and discipline to give the best ingredients available. While they do not source ingredients directly from China, some of their B vitamins are made with raw materials that originate in China. This would apply to vitamins B1 and B6, and is consistent throughout the pet food industry. They require that any vitamin components sourced from China must be human grade, and as such they undergo intensive testing to ensure the purity of the ingredient and accuracy of the blend.

Are the salmon, herring, and mackerel wild caught?
Answer by ChewyApr 29, 2022
The Orijen fish are all sustainable and wild-caught.

If 2/3 of the animal ingredients are "fresh and raw" before cooking, what condition are the other 1/3 of the animal ingredients?
Answer by ChewyOct 03, 2021
The remaining 1/3 of the animal ingredients are composed of meat meals and dehydrated meats.

Changed food to improve my fur babies health

My 4 kitties were doing good on the kibble I was feeding. But having said that I noticed that one of my cats kept vomiting. Then I noticed that their stools were puny. Since going on Origen, which they all love, my cat that was vomiting is much less frequent and I noticed much healthier appearing stools. I couldn't ask for better results.

our cats love this flavor

Our 2 cats love Orijen! I try to switch up their food every once in awhile to *spice it up* for them but they consistently love this brand and flavor. I stick with Orijen now for the most part. This is one of the best brands for the price imo. Quality ingredients. Glad they don’t put any garbage in pet food (at least from what I’ve seen so far) our cats love this dry or with a little cat friendly bone broth. We’ve had health issues with one cat since we’ve had him, and I swear this food keeps his immune system healthy because he’s had ZERO flare-ups. Great products who serve whole-foods.

The best dry cat food out there!

If you're going to feed your cat dry food then buy this. It's expensive but in general dry food is lacking good ingredients and what is in it is baked out. This is the exception! The first 14 ingredients are meat and fish! You can spend less and not get the nutrition this product has. You can spend more time and money at the vet office in exchange. Healthy food = healthy pet. Always supplement with wet food as cat's are notorious for not getting enough hydration. Oh and by the way, all three of my cats love the taste!

Ate the bag!

I switched from Nulo since they didn't have as many flavors my kitties could eat. My kitties ate through the bag to get more! They LOVE this and their coats are still just as shiny and they re just as energetic as before

Top pick of our two cats

We put out four bowls -- Tiki Born Carnivore, Ziwi Peak Lamb, Arcana Meadowlands, and Orijen Guardian --both cats went for the Orijen Guardian 8 -- the bowl emptied on two consecutive days before any of the other three showed much consumption. The test is over and we're switching :)

Love this stuff

My sister had given my cats a little sample of this food last year for Christmas and they went nuts for it and really seemed to like it. It is on the expensive side so I waited until Chewy had a deal on it and picked up a bag. Orijen really seems to know what cats like. Definitely would recommend.

My cats love this food

We have 2 cats that have very different tastes, but they can both agree on this cat food. They both love it.

Cats do not eat it

When put out next to other dry food my cats refused to chose this. Big disaspointment for the premium price?

They just did not want to eat this one

We have several cats and I was really hoping this would be one that they enjoyed however the cats just were not interested as they turned their nose up time and time again . I believe the food is really healthy and looks to have some great ingredients, but for some reason none of our cats cared for this dry cat food. So my search will continue .
