YOUR PUPPY SHARES HIS EATING ANATOMY WITH THE WOLF, WHICH MEANS HE’S EVOLVED AS A CARNIVORE, ADAPTED FOR A DIET RICH AND VARIED IN MEAT (NOT CARBOHYDRATES AND GRAINS).
MEAT AND PROTEIN RICH
Made with 80% meat ORIJEN features a Biologically Appropriate protein level of 38% which closely replicates the natural puppy diet.
MODERATE IN ANIMAL FAT
Animal fats are essential for peak health. That’s why ORIJEN features naturally occurring, non-rendered fats from fresh poultry, fish and eggs.
LIMITED CALCIUM & PHOSPHORUS
The potential oversupply of calcium and phosphorus in puppy foods is cause for concern for large breeds. ORIJEN features special ”low ash” chicken and fish to produce a healthy mineral balance.
DHA AND EPA FROM FRESH FISH
Fresh fish is a perfect source of DHA and EPA, essential for your puppy’s immune and nervous systems and not available from plant source, such as flax, coconut or sunflower.
Your puppy’s natural diet contains few carbohydrates. That’s why ORIJEN is potato-free and contains less than half the carbohydrates found in conventional puppy foods.
GLUCOSAMINE & CHONDROITIN
ORIJEN’s fresh poultry, meats and fish provide a rich and natural source of glucosamine and chondroitin, so no synthetic sources are added to ORIJEN foods.
THERE ARE THREE SOURCES OF CALORIES AVAILABLE TO YOUR PUPPY: PROTEIN, FAT AND CARBOHYDRATE. WHILE PROTEIN AND FAT ARE ESSENTIAL, CARBOHYDRATES ARE NOT. IN FACT, PUPPIES REQUIRE NO CARBOHYDRATE IN THEIR DIET.
Fast carbohydrates from rice, corn, potato or tapioca elevate blood sugar and are quickly stored in the body as fat, and are a leading dietary cause of overweight puppies .
By providing more calories from protein and fat (and fewer from carbohydrates), ORIJEN distributes calories to mirror the natural puppy diet, reducing the risk of obesity and diabetes.
CALORIE CONTENT AND DISTRIBUTION
Metabolizable energy for ORIJEN PUPPY LARGE BREED is 3800 kcal/kg or 456 kcal per 250ml cup (120g). Calories are distributed to support peak conditioning with 40% from protein, 22% from fruits and vegetables, and 38% from fat.
YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT, AS THE ADAGE GOES. THE SAME IS TRUE FOR YOUR PUPPY.
ORIJEN mirrors the foods Mother Nature intended puppies to eat. Equally important is the natural taste, after all, puppies deserve to enjoy their meals too.
Your puppy is a unique individual and his feeding requirements will vary with his breed, environment, age and activity. That’s why we suggest starting with the guides below, and then monitoring his weight and adjusting portions as needed. Feed twice daily and remember to always keep fresh, clean water available to your puppy.
