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.

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.

Questions & Answers

17 Customer Questions

Does Orijen process this kibble by high heat extrusion?
Answer by ChewyJan 19, 2021
ORIJEN's extrusion process cooks ingredients gently in their own juices with steam to ensure maximum flavor potential. The process typically cooks at temperatures between 195-240 degrees Fahrenheit which are high enough to remove any harmful pathogens that can be present in fresh meats, while low enough to maintain the nutritional integrity of the ingredients.

Why do you use meat meal? Meat meal is cooked at high temperatures.
Answer by ChewyJan 28, 2021
ORIJEN uses a mix of fresh, raw, and dry ingredients. The fresh and raw meat ingredients along with the fresh fruit and vegetable content arrive in their natural state and retain the highest nutritional value. The dry ingredients are a quality, concentrated protein source which is important in providing a Biologically Appropriate diet.

How many cups in a 25-lb bag?
Answer by ChewyJan 19, 2021
There are approximately 100 cups of food in the 25 pound bag.

A Kibble My Dog Actually WANTS to Eat !

I would give this food 10 out of 10 stars if I could! I was skeptical because of the price tag, but then I did some research on how this food is made, the wholesome ingredients included and I soon realized why my dog actually wanted it. If you can afford this food you cannot go wrong with it! My dog tracks deer during hunting season, so the tundra option was obviously my first choice. I used to have to "doctor" her food with toppers and such, in order for her to eat it because as a travel nurse kibble is the only feasible option for me. I would do raw if I could, but I don't have the storage for it. To have a dog who is excited to finally eat is such a reward. What you said your dog truly does matter, just as much as what you feed yourself. I am so grateful that this brand exists and I hope it never changes! That this brand exists and I hope it never changes!

Nothing but the best!

I can't say enough about the positive benefits of the Tundra diet for our 1yo lab. Sure, he doesn't have great breath, but that's really the only drawback. He was running pretty lean on the recommended portions, so we just increased the amount to put a little more meat on him (we dial it back in the winter). His skin and coat are gorgeous on this diet. We tried switching to the Orijen Original diet ($35 cheaper, still very high quality), but his skin dried up within weeks and his coat was rougher. So we're back to Tundra - our Chuck is worth it!

Great food

I've been feeding my dogs Orijen for years. From the puppy to the senior foods. My Malinois regularly eats the six fish and I alternate flavors from that, to regional red and the tundra. She loves all of them equally or at least the bowls appear that way. I still can't tell which is my favorite between the six fish and the tundra, but the dogs do great and love the flavors.

Still not sure at this point.

I used to feed my old 130lb Mastiff this stuff. It was great for her. When i saw that it was available on Chewy, i got my new dog, a 70lb coonhound, a bag. I may have not done the food transfer correctly but she was sick for 2 days. I am currently working her back on the food but in lower doses. I really hope the dogs sickness was not related to the food because I know, from past experience, its healthy and can prolong a large dogs life.

What Happened?

Fed this to my Dane for a year of her life, but stopped after the last two bags. First of the last two bags made her have diarrhea. Took me a while to figure out because she’s been eating same food for a year. I changed her food and diarrhea cleared up. Gave the rest and the next bag to my daughter for her Golden, and he was fine but then also developed diarrhea. Seems like something has gone wrong with the recent batches. Not risking it ever again.

Verdict is still out.

Well, we're not sure about this one. The verdict is still out on rather or not it's a hit. I wanted to change proteins from the Regional Red. I'll be going back to the Regional Red before this bag is gone and mix it up. Wasn't planning on making the Tundra a steady diet mainly because of the higher price.

Good quality product

This brand sells you right off the top with the raw food pics and presentation on the bags. Great product but I went to the Orijen Original just because I got more per the 25lbs bag vs Tundra’s 13lb bag.

Kibble / Raw

Like everything the price is soooo high and I can never find a coupon but this is far better than I’ve ever fed ! Better poop and she eats less <3 highly recommend this product. It’s as close to raw as you can find the first 5-6 ingredients are MEAT

Good Kibble

This kibble smells just like it's advertised - lots of real food! Be careful though, it's a lot to digest. I'm still working on transitioning, she's only 22 months, she couldn't handle the puppy version, but maybe the good stuff will be good for her now. Tundra seems great kibble. Notably, it's extremely high protein and multiple ingredients, so it's not a simple transition even though we're working off of Wellness Core Wholesome Grains Original Recipe High Protein. I included the grains because she seemed to need them. Nonetheless, she isn't thriving on it. I'm looking for kibble that she does thrive on. Three stars only coz we haven't transitioned totally, and stools have been still often looser than I would like, but I have high hopes. I just want to find a kibble she thrives on, and this is a good start :)

definitely recommend

My basset hound has only ever been on two dry kibbles. Since I got him as a pup he was on Orijen large breed kibble which he loved and it allowed him to fill out nicely and be so lean. So many people are surprised when they see him so active and fit as most basset hounds are extremely overweight. Once he was ready to transition to adult kibble I actually tried switching him to Essence (which he also loved but he was getting some bad reactions to it, a lovely brand just not the right fit for my pup). When I put back on Orijen everything cleared. He LOVES the Tundra kibble. It does smell a little fishy but as long as you have it in a container with a lid it isn’t an issue. He gets 2 cups a day and the first time he tried it he was begging for more. Had probably ate close to 3 cups of food that day because he loved the new taste.
