Orijen Cat & Kitten Dry Food
Orijen Cat & Kitten features an incredible 85% poultry, fish, and egg ingredients, including five fresh animal products in whole prey ratios that include muscle meat, organ meat, and cartilage. Both chicken and turkey are highly-digestible sources of protein, and fish is an excellent source of omega fatty acids, which are important for heart, skin, coat, joint, and brain health! Whole red lentils, whole green peas, and whole green lentils are low-glycemic carbohydrates that help to stabilize blood sugar levels and keep your cat feeling fuller for longer. A variety of fresh colorful produce and fresh green leafy vegetables provide such an abundance of vitamins and minerals that there are only three supplements added to this diet: zinc, copper, and choline! Botanicals such as chicory root, turmeric, milk thistle, burdock root, and lavender provide nutrients that a cat would encounter in the wild. This protein rich, all-life-stages diet is a fantastic choice for kittens and cats of all breeds, sizes, and ages!
About The Manufacturer
Orijen is a high-meat, low-carbohydrate dry cat food line produced by Champion Pet Foods, a Canadian pet food company that specializes in making Biologically Appropriate pet diets: diets that are as close as possible to what the animal would naturally eat in the wild. All Champion Pet Food diets are made according to the whole prey model, which includes muscle meat, organ meat, bone, and cartilage. The whole prey model provides abundant sources of naturally-occurring amino acids, vitamins, and minerals, meaning that very few synthetic supplements have to be added to make the diet complete and balanced for your pet! Naturally-occurring nutrients are more bio-available than synthetics, and are therefore of greater use to the body. Orijen features fresh, regionally sourced ingredients that are preservative free and that are delivered to Champion Pet Food’s kitchens within two days of harvest. Orijen cat diets feature 85% meat and 15% fruits, vegetables, and botanicals, making it the most meat-dense cat kibble we offer! Orijen kibble is a great option for raw and fresh-food feeders who occasionally would like to rotate feedings with a high-quality kibble.
