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.

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.


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, 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.

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.

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.

These foods provide great sources of cysteine, methionine and taurine from the abundant meat ingredients used in our recipes and exceed all reported requirements by AAFCO and the NRC.

How many cups of kibble are in the 10lb bag?
Answer by ChewyMay 11, 2021
There will be approximately 4 cups of kibble per pound. The 4-pound bag will have close to 16 cups of kibble and the 10-pound bag will have close to 40 cups of kibble.

Is this good for puppies? I know it says all life stages, but I want to make sure my puppy gets all her nutrients needed to grow. She is a very picky eater and seems to like this, but want to make sure its sufficient.
Answer by ChewyApr 10, 2021
The ORIJEN Small Breed Grain-Free Dry Dog Food is made with puppies in mind. At 1 ½ - 3 months old, feed twice the adult amount. At 3-6 months, feed 1 ½ times the adult amount. At 6-11 months, feed 1 ¼ times the adult amount.

Ollie's favorite food

I've been feeding this food to my chihuahua for almost 2 years, ever since he was 6 months old. He loves it ! I give him 1/4 cup split into twice a day, for his weight that's all he needs. He's the perfect weight, shiny soft fur. I recommend this brand to all my friends who own pets.

OrJen Review

Trying OrJen for first time with a picky eater toy Goldendoodle. Not sure she likes it any better than anything else but my other dog gobbles down what she doesn’t! Purchased because of ingredient statement and reputation of Origen. Service from Chewy was as usual seamless with food delivered on time as promised.

Food ORIJEN Small Breed Grain-Free Dry Dog Food

My Fritz is getting old, 11 and this dog food for is perfect ! The kibbles are the right size for him to eat and digest well. He loves the flavor and has more energy lately. I believe the No Grain food is superior to the other foods I had been feed him. Thank You for carrying this ORIJEN brand ! Happy Dog Mom and Fritz M

Probably great dogfood, just not for my dogs

Our normal brand has had supply chain issues so I tried this Orijen for my chiweenie and poodle mix before I completely ran out of the other brand. I was unable to continue using after 4 days at a 20% mix with 80% old brand. Chiweenie developed his gastroenteritis issues for the first time in a couple years, sadly. I went back to old brand in another protein source. That being said, this Orijen brand has excellent ingredients and I would think is a super good choice for dogs without stomach issues and sensitivities. It was too great a change in formulation for my pets needs, however.

Papi and Buttons like small kibble and I try to look for variety so that have a different foods to eat, I swear the last time I got Orijen Small Breed, the kibble was smaller and that is what I expected when I bought this.. Papi has several of his teeth missing, so in order for him to have a comfort in eating the kibble needs to be smaller then what I have in my hand in this picture. Button is a toy breed, so she has teeth that are even smaller than Papi in which is a small breed. They both can eat this, but it is not comfortable so I will not be buying this again. I will stick to Now Fresh, now that is what I expected when I bought Orijen Small Breed. Small Breed now seems to be interpreted differently, which should be.

my dog’s favorite

My 6lb picky poodle will only eat this kibble (plus topping =]) I wish Orijen make other flavors for small breed. This is her 4th bag and kinda getting worried if she gets bored of it.

Yorkiepoo will not eat

My Yorkiepoo will not eat this Origen grain free dry dog food and I don’t know what to do with the bag. I wanted to try Origen because it has healthier contents and ratings. Two of our previous dogs did well on the brand. I wish a small sample bag could be purchased to test it out before purchasing the larger size.

Better Ingredients and Tastes Good

Following the instructions that came with this dog food, I slowly transitioned little “Lulu” over to ‘Orijen Small Breed’ made with Turkey, Chicken, Quail, Whole Blue Whiting and Whole Mackerel. Rich in protein with no grains or meals. Other ingredients included cranberries, pumpkin, butternut squash, collard greens, apples and pears. This dog food contains NO cornstarch, sugar, dextrose or beet pulp. “Lulu’s” previous dog food was low fat, but loaded with chicken by-product meal, pea fiber, powered cellulose and fructooligosaccharides. Concerning her blood tests, “Lulu’s” blood sugar (glucose level) was always high while on that dog food. I was not a fan. ‘Orijen Small Breed’ is a healthy dog food especially for little dogs with high blood sugar. “Lulu” LOVES the taste and gobbles it right up!

Must have for the picky eater!

My two year old Mal-Shi is very finicky with her kibble and we have tried just about every dog food out there to no avail. We got our first bag today and she gobbled it up like she has never had kibble before, we couldn't be happier that she finally has a kibble she is willing to eat. Thank you Orijen..

My dog loves this!

It took me 6 months to find an adult dog food my dog likes. I bought the adult formula of her puppy pet food thinking it would be the perfect transition...not even close. My vet recommended this one.
