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.


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


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

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.

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.

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.

Recent changes making pets sick.

We just received a new bag of Orijen Senior. A couple days later my senior developed diarrhea. She was immediately put on just boiled chicken and rice and got an Rx from the vet (600.00 for tests, blood work and Rx). Once the diarrhea cleared up we SLOWLY started adding a little Orijen to her chicken and rice. After just 2 days the diarrhea was back. The Canadian company, Champion Petfoods (Orijen and Acana) was recently bought out by US based Mars Petcare. They have since changed the recipe and I can’t help but think these changes were profit driven without any thought to the wellness of our pets.

It was just Ok

First off let me state emphatically that the ingredients in this food are great. Nothing at all wrong with this food. That said my dog would not eat it and simply pushed it away starring at it. Sorry. I tried to incorporate a healthy food choice but this was not the one.

Bought it because of the reviews, thinking my baby will like it, specially that it was supposed to be small bites, I ended up giving it to away, since my baby was not eating it.

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.

horrible days

The 8-year-old and 14-year-old puppies had diarrhea all night, continued to drink water, pooped and urinated throughout the days, and continued dozens of times for two days... never like this.

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.

Great quality food

Orijen senior helped my dog look and feel better. It was great until he started having problems eating poultry.

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

Good stuff,

according to my dog. Transitioning her to senior food is easy when you can find a food they like.
