A biologically appropriate dog food matches the anatomy of the dog, keeping in mind today's modern lifestyle of regular feeding and less movement which results in a reduced caloric requirement.
Orijen Senior dog food takes the changed metabolism of older dogs into special consideration for a long and healthy canine life. ORIJEN dog food is different from other pet foods:
- Higher protein content from fresh meat
- Contains no cereals
- Few carbohydrates
- Rich in fruits and vegetables
- Glucosamine and chondroitin for healthy joints
- Herbs and probiotic bacteria to promote health
- High protein content from fresh meats: Dogs are naturally carnivores; their short digestive tract is designed to consume and metabolize a meat-based, protein-rich diet low in carbohydrates. Dogs are very effective at utilizing protein as a source of energy. Only a meat-based food ensures the optimal health and vitality of your dog. ORIJEN dog food contains at least 80% meat, featuring regional Canadian ingredients that arrive at the factory fresh - never frozen or dried.
- Fresh Canadian chicken: easily digestible proteins and fats
- Fresh Canadian turkey: provides essential amino acids and natural vitamin B3
- Freshly caught Lake Whitefish (Coregonus clupeaformis) from Canadian lakes
- Freshly caught king salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha): high levels of activated omega-3 fatty acids (DHA and EPA) for healthy skin and a shiny coat
- Fresh eggs from Canadian farms: high quality protein, lutein and zeaxanthin for eye protection double
- No cereals, low content of carbohydrates: Grains are used as a cheap source of caloric energy and protein in dog foods, although dogs are simply not evolved to eat processed cereals. Biologically, dogs only require a very small amount of carbohydrates. Numerous veterinarians consider grains in food as the source of a host of health problems including obesity, diabetes, and digestive problems.
- Healthy fruits & vegetables from Canada:
- Apples: provide plant fibre for healthy digestion and are rich in phyto-nutrients with antioxidant, cell-protecting characteristics

- Health-promoting botanicals: Dogs have the instinctive ability to choose to eat grasses and plants that enhance their vitality and well-being. The vitamin and mineral-rich botanicals featured in Orijen dog food are carefully-selected by veterinarians.
- Chicory and psyllium: supply soluble fibre that soothes and nourishes the digestive tract and stabilize blood sugar levels
