  • Serve dry or lightly moistened. See your veterinarian regularly. To help maintain freshness, we recommend sealing the bag tightly and storing it in a cool, dry location.
  • Puppies: At 1 1/2 - 3 months old, feed twice the adult amount. At 3-6 months, feed 1 1/2 times the adult amount. At 6-11 months, feed 1 1/4 times the adult amount.
  • Gestation: increase from 25% to 50% of the adult amount.
  • Lactation: feed 'free choice'.
Transition Instructions

When switching diets, it's important to transition your dog or puppy as it takes time for her digestive system to adapt to the richer nutrient levels in Orijen. Over a 5-7 day period, gradually mix in Orijen, increasing the amount each day so that by day 7 you are feeding 100% Orijen.

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.

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.


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.


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

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 natural whole nutrition cats and dogs evolved to eat. Help your best friend reach his fullest potential with a biologically appropriate diet from ORIJEN.

    Picky pooch likes

    By Jenn on Feb 19, 2021

    I have a 7 year old Chihuahua/terrier mix who is (was) so skinny as she is really picky about her food. She’s offered food twice a day but often skips meals, however, she has been eating this Oijen food with no problem and has put on weight. I’ve mixed with another food she sometimes eats to stretch it as it is expensive and she ends up cleaning the whole bowl every time now. Win win!

    Better than ever!

    By Jenn on Feb 12, 2021

    So happy to have Orijens back at Chewy! Our three small breed dogs have enjoyed Orijens for many years. It was made even better by the new small breed small bits. This has been a wonderful addition to the line up they offer. Quality food is so important to us and in my opinion this is excellent.

    Star Loves It

    By BelindaBelieves1 on Feb 18, 2021

    I really appreciate that the ingredients are natural. The kibble is small and perfect for our chihuahua. She likes the taste so much that I can even use the kibble as treats. It’s priced competitively yet it’s much better than most.

    My little guy LOVES this!!

    By pyro on Jan 25, 2021

    My little Chug, Finn, loves it! He was on the Earthborn Venture Rabbit for quite some time, as he's got some less common food allergies, and I could tell the bigger kibble were harder for him to eat. He loves the small pieces! Not to mention, the quality of the ingredients. Im happy with the food and the company, and (more importantly) he's happy!

    My dog does not eat it

    By Chanel005 on Feb 9, 2021

    It's been a week since I received this food. I bought a big bag with high expectation because of their good reputation. However, my dogs don't eat it. Kibbles are too hard to chew even though the size is small. The ingredients are good but it became useless for my two maltese.

    He loves it!

    By Marie on Feb 15, 2021

    Long time Orijen user, unfortunately my little Havanese really disliked the size of the nuggets and refused to eat the original version. Figured I give this a shot and he loved it. So happy he can join his cat siblings eating Orijen.

    Welcome to Chewy, Orijen!!

    By Molly on Jan 30, 2021

    Was just causally looking for toys for my little Yorkie and saw that our favorite food is now on Chewy. We switched our puppy over to this food a few months ago and woah what a difference. Her coat is shinny and thicker, her energy levels are well managed and her muscles are growing. The ingredients in this food are fantastic and believe me when I tell you, we did our research. There are no fillers, no byproducts and whole animal products. This is what your dogs needs and craves. Even our vet is impressed by this food. Trust me, you will not be disappointed and neither will your fur baby!

    Finally a dry food my dog likes!

    By Patricia on Jan 27, 2021

    I leave some dry food out for my Shih Tzu so if he gets really hungry he as something to eat. I only feed him canned food one time a day. Previous foods didn't much appeal to him. I'm finding he will eat Orijen Small Breed.
