High-protein and low-carbohydrate, ORIJEN ADULT's grain-free formula replicates the same rich balance of meats, fruits, vegetables and grasses that dogs would encounter in a wilderness setting.
PET FOOD of the YEAR 2009-2011
This global award is presented by the Glycemic Research Institute, for the Best Overall Healthiest Pet Food.
Biologically Appropriate for all Breeds
By nature, all dogs are facultative carnivores, thriving on a varied diet of meats with smaller amounts of fruits, vegetables and grasses and biologically adapted to metabolize proteins and fats - not carbohydrates - as an energy source.
Made with the highest inclusions of fresh grain-fed chicken meat, wild-caught northern whitefish and fresh whole eggs, ORIJEN is bursting with the protein-packed, veterinary-inspected meats (minimum 80%) that form a Biologically Appropriate diet,—and none of the grains or carbohydrates that are inappropriate for your dog.
Instead of grain, ORIJEN contains a full complement of regional fruits and vegetables (minimum 20%) that supply important natural antioxidants and phytochemicals.
Chicken, flax, sunflower, salmon and anchovy oils provide the essential fatty acids that dogs cannot produce themselves (including DHA and EPA) and are so important to nutritionally support the development of cell membranes, immune systems and a vibrant skin and hair coat.
Bridging the gap between good nutrition and total physical well-being, ORIJEN Adult contains native botanicals that include marshmallow, burdock and chicory root, stinging nettle and milk thistle,— all of which replicate the natural canine diet and help to soothe, nourish and tone the digestive tract, strengthen the liver and control insulin levels.
Check our ingredients and we think you’ll agree: Biologically Appropriate ORIJEN is a natural and delicious way to ensure the health and vitality of your Adult dog - no matter what his breed, age or size.

The relatively short gastrointestinal system of dogs lacks the enzymes needed to efficiently digest carbohydrates and is instead evolved to metabolize a diet high in protein and fat.
High protein and low carbohydrate, the nutritional analysis of ORIJEN ADULT replicates the diet Mother Nature originally intended for adult dogs.
With total calories moderated to match the lifestyle of today's adult dog, ORIJEN's high protein and reduced carbohydrate formula naturally controls body weight by providing calories in a biologically appropriate form (fewer calories from carbohydrate, more calories from protein).
Organic calcium and phosphorus are naturally balanced and supplemented with 100% ocean-source glucosamine and chondroitin to nutritionally support long-term bone and joint health.
A rich supply of omega 3 and 6 essential fatty acids from fresh fish, sunflower and flax nutritionally supports peak health and a healthy skin and hair coat.
Bridging the gap between good nutrition and total physical well-being, ORIJEN's botanical selection replicates the natural canine diet to soothe, nourish and tone the digestive tract, strengthen the liver and control insulin levels.
