Questions & Answers

16 Customer Questions


Has this food been checked for lead or arsenic levels?
Answer by ChewyOct 11, 2017
The fresh fish and all of the fish that make up the fish ingredients are exclusively from fish approved fit for human consumption. Monitoring heavy metal levels is a critical control point, and part of Orijen's HACCP program. The fish is tested for all heavy metals including lead ,arsenic and mercury. In addition to this, they audit their facilities and have a third party test for heavy metals.

do any of the ingredients come from china
Answer by ChewyFeb 23, 2021
ORIJEN has always been focused 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.

How many calories are in 1 cup of Senior food?

Are euthanized animals used for the food prep
Answer by ChewyFeb 01, 2021
ORIJEN foods and treats are formulated for dogs and cats, with meat and poultry ingredients sourced from federally licensed facilities that must have implemented a HACCP-based food safety system. Meat and poultry ingredients must be sourced from animals that are not condemned, diseased, or that have died otherwise than by slaughter.

My dog won't eat it :(

I have a 9-year-old golden retriever who usually wants to eat everything except this food! I can tell her stomach has not been feeling well recently. I know Orijen is a good brand, and I wanted to feed her the best kibble, but it gives her horrible gas and soft stools. She is now refusing to eat it, which is insane to watch (if you have a golden retriever, you know how weird it is to see them reject food). Not to mention, the food genuinely smells terrible. It is really fishy! I am curious to know how many people haven't commented on this. I would advise staying away from this formula if your doggie has a sensitive stomach or is allergy prone.

Best Choice!

We switched from Eukanuba to Orijen and we couldn’t be happier. While it’s a bit more expensive, I’m happy to pay for real ingredients (just look at the ingredients versus other brands). My 10yr old lab mix loves it and we only want what’s best for her. I rehydrate it and mix in probiotics and her daily vitamins and she loves it.

Chewy is the best

Fed my dogs Orijen senior for years. Loved it and so did my dogs. I’m in awe how chewy responsed to the news my sweet dog had passed. One week later I received a Beautiful card and nice stone with his name and a plaque with a paw print and “forever in my heart”. So meaningful. Once I’m ready for a new round of dogs, chewy definitely has my business. Thank you.

Our senior dogs loved it

We have 2 dogs over 10 years old and they were not only becoming picky eaters but also having issues such as throwing up their food sometimes. This food solved all those issues and they love it! Thank you

Bruno loves this food!!

Our dog Bruno is a fussy eater. We always need to coax him into eating. He is a senior boy with a few medical issues and food allergies. Orijen Senior grain-free was recommended to us at our local pet store (sorry Chewy!), so I bought a bag to try it out. Well, our fussy eater went crazy for this food. I was shocked. We are now in the process of transitioning him to Orijen. As a matter of fact, the bag of food was sitting on the floor and he chewed a hole through the bag to get to the food. He has never done this for any of the other foods we tried. We are hopeful he will continue to enjoy this food and reap the benefits of the nutritional ingredients. Oh, the bag didn’t open nicely so I had to clip it closed — there’s got to be a better way for opening/closing the bag.

wish I tried Orijen sooner

I’ve known about Orijen for a long time, but it’s one of brands I passed on due to cost. My 12 year old 78 lb mix has been on a variety of foods from Buffalo Blue Wilderness and Wellness Core since 3 months old. And I highly recommend both brands. For the past 1.5 years he was on Wellness Core Digestive Health. It seemed to help his sensitive stomach and gastric issues. He did well and liked, but for the past couple months for some reason he won’t touch it. He will eat anything else I add to his bowl, but finds the Wellness kibbles and spits them out. I don’t know if they changed the formula or what happened! So I decided to give Orijen Senior a try. I first purchased the smallest bag just to try. He loved it! So I decided to start the transition and it was easy, no issues. Poops are great, happy, energetic, His joint issues are even doing well. (He is also on Cosequin for joint and Denamarin for liver) I am pleased and will continue with Orijen for now. He has Cushings and I want him to live out his remaining years happy and with the best.

Best choice Ive made

With my 2 senior Siberian huskies, their eating habits have always been challenging. A recent home sale and relocation had greatly effected both dogs in a negative way. After a few months of health concerns and vet visits that lead to a mysterious diagnosis of home sick. We switched to Origen, following recommendations to introduce a new food, within a few weeks they both perked up. Getting adjusted to the new food and environment of apartment living took some time but now they both are eating on schedule and stool has returned to a healthy condition! We never imagined their emotional state during the move, but Origen helped getting back to normal.

Old dog less pain

My dog has stopped licking as much since I put him on this food. His arthritis pain also seems to be diminished.

Solved A lot of Problems

I have a husky with serious stomach issues. He's been eating Orijen for well over a year, and this food has been a blessing!

Good response from my dogs

I am upset to learn that Mars has bought this company and will probably add more fillers with less quality ingredients.
