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

is pea starch the same thing as pea protein?

I read that it helps to have taurine in their foods to help their hearts - is there any in this food? Thank You.

Is this good for French bulldogs
Answer by ChewySep 07, 2021
This recipe is formulated for Small Breed dogs up to 20 pounds.

It says to feed my 11lb dog 1/2 per day. And feed them twice a day. So does that mean he eats 1 whole cup or do I split 1/2 into 2 meals?
Answer by ChewyJun 16, 2021
We recommend you feed twice daily. Simply divide the amount suggested on the feeding guide into two meals, spaced eight to 12 hours apart. For example, if the feeding guide calls for 1 cups per day, we recommend feeding ½ a cup in the morning and ½ a cup at night. You may need to adjust portions as you learn your pet’s ideal daily maintenance amount. These amounts may change over time as your pet’s age and activity levels change. Always keep in mind a lean dog or cat is a healthy pet.

My dog liked it!!!

I believe it is the high quality great kibbles, and I was hoping that my very picky foodie dog would love it like crazy. Unfortunately, she did not love it like she would eat it on its on, but she does eat it when mixed with the topper like boiled broccoli or Cesar wet food, so I decided to keep feeding this to her.

Small Dog Food

My dog is a senior and cannot tolerate anything that she has to struggle chewing. This dog food is very chewable for her and she has no problem digesting it. Very glad I got it for her and will not buy any other kind from here on out.

picky yorkie loves orijen

My yorkie is hella picky but he does like this food. The only thing is that the smell is quite strong. It makes his breath and booty smell like the kibbles. I’m not complaining as long as he’ll eat it lol

I wish she liked it!

Gracie turned her nose up at this kibble almost every time, I am still trying to get her to finish the bag at least. The kibble is super healthy and high protien but she is not a fan for the flavor, even with chicken on top! :( I think she preferred the one with grains better.

Excellent Food

I purchased this food for the first time for the pickiest pickiest pickiest Yorkie on the planet. He is actually eating it. If he quits eating it, I know it has nothing to do with the food, it's my Dog.

My dog gags

Well, healthiest isn't tastiest according to both my dogs. One sniffed and had no further interest. The other one gagged when she tried it. Maybe it's time to go cheapo.

The Cadillac of dog food

I stole that line from a young man I spoke with at Chewy. But it's true for me as well, my dog has no problem cleaning her bowl, even though she seems to enjoy a good dusting of Halo brand freeze dried raw dog food topper.I bought two 10 pound bags of Orijen small breed kibble because I had the money, and I'm glad, because I hate to run out.

Orijen Small Breed

Our LhasaPoo Toby has been on wet food and we're trying to wean him off and eat only Orijen. We started with a handful a day mixed in his wet food. He loved it. Now he eats 1/4 cup a day with his wet food.
