Orijen Original Cat Recipe Dry Cat Food
Help your cat thrive with the power of protein-rich recipes that provide peak nourishment. As obligate carnivores, modern cats are built like their ancestors and thrive on a Biologically Appropriate diet rich in protein and fat sourced from a variety of animal ingredients. ORIJEN Original Cat diet is made with fresh or raw free-run chicken and turkey, wild-caught fish and cage-free eggs. Packed with Whole Prey animal ingredients like organs and bone, ORIJEN food is made with the most nutrient-dense, succulent parts of the prey to deliver the nutrition cats need. With 90% quality animal ingredients and a freeze-dried liver coating, this diet is beyond comparison.
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.
