Questions & Answers

24 Customer Questions

It says "Made in the USA with some of the world's finest ingredients". My question is: Are the ingredients made in the USA?
Answer by ChewyFeb 16, 2021
ORIJEN sources ingredients regionally and does not source ingredients directly from China, though their B vitamins are made with raw materials that originate in China. This would apply to vitamins B1, B6, and B9, and is consistent throughout the pet food industry. ORIJEN food goes through a comprehensive supplier management and verification program to ensure ingredient safety. Up to 88% of the protein will originate from animal ingredients.

Is this 100% raw food
Answer by ChewyMar 23, 2021
This product contains 100% fresh, raw, or dehydrated animal ingredients.

Could you tell me if you use any antibiotics, hormones, or pesticides in raising the animals to make the food? Thank you for your time and l look forward to your reply.
Answer by ChewyMar 25, 2022
Depending on the supplier, growth hormones may be included in the feed. ORIJEN meat ingredients are free of antibiotics. This does not mean that the animal has never received antibiotics, but that the proper withdrawal times were adhered to and the animal is free of antibiotics prior to slaughter. Antibiotics, if they are required, are administered in accordance with the FDA. Maximum residue limits for each veterinary drug are set and must be met through appropriate withdrawal times following treatment before the animal can be slaughtered.

Is this organic and gluten-free?
Answer by ChewyOct 05, 2021
ORIJEN does not use GMO ingredients in any of their foods. The fruits and vegetables used in their recipes are not organic, but are sourced from a specially curated group of leading farmers. They do not use any gluten-containing ingredients in their recipes either. However, because it is possible for gluten-free grains to come into contact with gluten-containing grains post-harvest (even in microscopic amounts), they do not guarantee their kitchens are 100% gluten-free.

Mostly a good food!

The reason I give this 4 stars instead of 5 is that they product contains 2 different types of lentils in their product which isn't the best for kitty as they are hard to digest, can cause gas, diarrhea & stomach cramping. They should less of this product instead of more & have noticed that it has affected one of my kitties causing her to have loose bowel movements. My suggestion is that they cut down on their usage of lentils in their product, otherwise the remaining ingredients are top notch. I would only recommend this product if your kitty doesn't suffer from tummy distress, but you won't know until you try the product, I am switching to honest kitchen for this reason.

Highest quality dry food but my cat refuse to eat it !

I read here in the USA and in Europe that Orijen is the healthiest dry cat food so I try after one of my cat finished her French premium cat food of a brand not sold in the USA , Virbac . Well she has refuse to even taste it . Not sure why ? Cats are very picky , unfortunately I have had to order something else but will kept the bag when I return to France soon and try with my other cat there . Most people says how much their cat love Orijen .

My cat can’t get enough!

I tried Orijen because I was looking for a high quality, high protein food with ingredients I could pronounce and this was the one I settled on and I am very glad I did. My cat no longer throws up food, his poops look healthy, his coat is SO soft and shiny. The best part is he LOVES this food. We ran out recently and the pet stores near me don’t carry it so I picked up a different bag of food to get him through until my chewy order came and needless to say, he was NOT impressed. We will always buy Orijen. Worth the money. :)

My picky cat LOVES this food

I introduced my cat to this food about a month ago and he loves it. He inhales it when I put it in his bowl - I use Stella & Chewy's meal toppers and it works great. I've noticed his fur is nice and shiny and overall we're both very satisfied.

cat likes it, good source of protein

I never know what my cat will eat, but she likes this. There is good source of protein in it so I feel good about serving it to her, even though it is kibble. I also give her wet food to make sure she's getting enough water.

Cats love it!

I have seven cats, all rescues. Had fed them a favorite premium brand of cat food for several years, but just recently one cat had started vomiting yellow bile liquid frequently. My vet ran blood tests and xrays and couldn't find anything wrong. I switched to this and to Solid Gold, Quail and Pumpkin and the vomiting stopped. All seven cats seem to love this dry food, which I supplement with canned food. It is a bit pricier, but I got tired of cleaning up the vomit, so worth the price.

Our fur child LOVES Orijen!!!

Our baby is super picky; he absolutely loves the taste. I love that it's a premium quality. He has a water fountain to offer him as much fresh water as he needs when eating dry food.

Great food!

We have 3 Sphynx cats. And we decided to change their dry food. Orijen is amazing. My cats love it. They are active, their poop looks good. And the ingredients are very healthy. Definitely will feed my kitties with this food.

healthy and they do eat it

The only issue is that they all seem to throw this up a lot. Never mind, it's for their teeth and they seem to like the scale of kibbles and flavor

Great Cat Dry Kibble

I try to buy only the best food for my cats. They lap this up. I’m so glad to see that chewy sells it now since I don’t have to go 40 miles in to buy it at the nearest Pet food store.
