About ORIJEN Dry Dog Food

The Pinnacle of Nutrition

Dogs are ancestral carnivores, and they thrive on a biologically appropriate diet. ORIJEN provides optimal canine nutrition by using unsurpassed quantities of fresh or raw meat from a variety of Wholeprey animal protein sources.

85% Animal Ingredients

With 85% premium animal ingredients, each ORIJEN dog food recipe provides a strong source of essential protein, vitamins and minerals in their most nourishing forms. It’s a high-protein diet designed to feed your best friend’s carnivorous cravings. *Approximate and derived from the unprocessed state of the ingredients. **Animal protein

Nourish As Nature Intended

Fresh ingredients preserved solely through refrigeration and raw ingredients frozen at the peak of freshness stay true to their form. This minimalist approach preserves important nutrients and keeps closer to the diet your canine evolved to eat.


The first 5 ingredients are always fresh or raw animal sources, including nutrient-rich meat, poultry, whole fish, and organs.


ORIJEN recipes include meat, organs, and bone, so your dog can enjoy the most nutrient-dense and succulent parts of the prey.


With at least 15 fresh or raw ingredients in every recipe, ORIJEN kibble is the closest thing to feeding a raw diet.

Transitioning to ORIJEN

Acclimate your dog to a new ORIJEN diet by transitioning gradually from the old food you were feeding. Start by replacing 25% of the old diet with ORIJEN food, increasing the new food amount proportionally over the next 10-14 days. By the end of the second week, you should be feeding 100% ORIJEN.


ORIJEN makes foods to help pets thrive, so they can stay healthy and strong through all their days. Their Wholeprey approach means including the most nutrient-dense and delicious parts of the prey in their recipes, to deliver the complete nutrition cats and dogs evolved to eat. Help your best friend reach his fullest potential with a biologically appropriate diet from ORIJEN.

Is orijen original good for diabetic dogs

What is the max % of Calcium and Phosphorus content of ORIJEN Original?

Are any of the ingredients in any of your dry dog foods sourced from China?
Answer by ChewyFeb 18, 2021
ORIJEN 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 us 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.

Where is orijen original grain free made?
Answer by ChewyAug 15, 2017

Thanks Chewy for sending the Original Orijen

My recurring order of dog food was canceled because they ran out of supply. Chewy sent and email, I spoke with a customer service rep on Sunday evening who changed the flavor of dog food and I had it the next day. My Great Dane Goliath really liked this food.

Good food BUT...

Good food BUT probably not worth the money. Both of my dogs prefer the American Journey Chicken and Rice. I took the bag of Origen and mixed it with the American Journey and they are eating it just fine now.

Dry dog food

Pretend dry dog food is the best dry dog food you can get for your dog. A raw dog food diet is best, but really expensive. It makes the cost of Ore jeans seem like a pittance. My dog loves the taste!!!

Incredible Dog Food & Service

Origen dry dog food is the only dry food my Airedale will eat consistently; and the only local pet chain store that carries it has been closed for two weeks. I ordered from Chewy & had it the next day, which was great because we were almost out of our dog’s favorite kibble. I also can’t say enough about the folks who process orders & get them delivered. Their hard work & efficiency are greatly appreciated!

Good food, but rich for our doodle

Started Origen due to advertised ingredients, wanting to provide more nutrients for our dog without breaking the bank. However, it seems rich and hard on her system if we try mixing more than 50% with her regular kibble. Smells good compared to her Purina One, which does not have much smell. Will continue it 'til we find a better alternative.

Goid stuff

I’m happy that this food was recommended to me because my dog loves it sadly I don’t have any idea what was given to her in her previous life as I adopted her at 4 years old from a shelter, when I adopted her she was thin and sad she now is 70 lbs and she is so happy and loved so much. She has a forever home with me. My only complaint is that it smells fishy.
