Orijen dog food is widely considered to be one of, if not the best, dog foods on the market. For over 30 years, Orijen has been producing high-quality foods for dogs and cats in a variety of different formulas. This company produces 6 different dry foods for dogs that incorporate whole meats and organs to mirror the natural diet of wild dogs. In addition to these dry foods, Orijen also produces three freeze-dried dog food formulas and a number of foods and treats for cats. All of Orijen’s products are made with natural, wholesome ingredients such as cage-free poultry, nest-laid eggs, wild-caught fish and ranch-raised meats.Orijen’s Biologically Appropriate dry dog food is made according to the whole prey model of feeding for dogs. This means that it includes 80% fresh whole meats which gives their food a protein percentage between 38 and 42% — this is incredibly high compared to many commercial dog foods. Orijen’s dry foods are formulated for dogs of all walks of life from puppy to senior dog, also accounting for large-breed and active dogs. Three freeze-dried formulas provide all the natural, nutritious goodness of raw food in a convenient, longer-lasting product.
Orijen dog food is manufactured by Champion Pet Food in Alberta, Canada. The company has been in business since 1975, and they have won awards in western Canada and Alberta for their manufacturing and leadership. Champion also makes Acana dog food which is similar to Orijen, though the meat percentage is a little lower. Champion says there are plans at some point in the future to make canned foods.
