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.

Questions & Answers

17 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.

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.

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.

Great option for mid-large seniors

We had been feeding our 8 year old lab mix Baxter a grain free senior food from wellness core and he was constantly either not eating it at all or waiting until the very end of the day. He was never excited about eating. We wanted a food that had less fillers and more vitamins & minerals (we thought about a fresh food company but the price was prohibitive). We found this Orijen food and he LOVES it! He actually runs to his dish when I’m filling it, and I don’t even get all the food in there before he starts eating. It has quite a fishy smell, but I’m fine with it knowing how much Baxter loves it. The kibble is fairly large so it think it’d work best for medium to large breed dogs.

Good quality food

My dog has become a picky eater. After 4 years and 7 months at a rescue (!) he now has a home, and he has decided ordinary dog food will no longer do. We have been through several brands and for now, anyway, he will eat the premium Origen Senior formula! So that’s what he’s getting. (I suspect he is part cat - we have never had a dog before that didn’t eat everything in sight.) My only reason for 4 and not 5 stars is that it’s awfully expensive.

Quality ingredients, but my dog hates it

I switched my 9 year old Beagle/Bassett over to this, and it didn't go well. This is a food motivated dog, and for the first time in his life, he didn't attack his food. I'd have to coax him to eat it by crushing up a milkbone and sprinkling it in. It also made his poop hard and some of it would turn white. I transitioned him over to his old food, and it made an instant difference. I know Orijen makes quality food, so I'll give this a 2 star rating, but it just didn't work for my dog.

My sheltie loves this stuff!

I have always had shelties. Shelties have sensitive stomachs. Vets have always recommended the two brands that you all know. Problem is they contain fillers (corn/wheat/soy) that dogs shouldn’t be eating. I tried Orijen and my dog doesn’t have loose stools and is frisky again. Best stuff ever. Wish it wasn’t so expensive. Do the research. You’ll agree with me.

Orijen Supplements

Since Orijen doesn't have a grain inclusive senior feed, I add brown rice and vegetables to Ziva's meals.

Excellent Senior Food

My 2 pit bull mixes are both 13 years old and have been on this food for over 5 years. They both still have a lot of energy and very alert. I would highly recommend this product.
