Description

SURROUNDED BY ATLANTIC, PACIFIC AND ARCTIC OCEANS, CANADA IS HOME TO VAST, UNPOLLUTED LAKES AND BOASTS A WORLD-CLASS MARINE HARVEST.

Reflecting our rich marine resources, and meeting your dog's evolutionary need for abundant daily protein, we load ORIJEN 6 FISH with high ratios of salmon, herring and flounder from Vancouver's cool Pacific Northwest waters, plus wild-caught whitefish, walleye and northern pike from our cold northern lakes — all delivered FRESH and preservative-free, so they're bursting with the essential proteins and fats that nourish your dog completely.

Carbohydrate-limited and grain-free to match your dog's natural diet, ORIJEN 6 FISH supplies a broad selection of regional fruits and vegetables that are naturally rich in phytonutrients, B-vitamins and trace minerals.

Veterinarian-selected botanicals — including sea vegetables, juniper berries and marigold flowers — mirror the instinct to forage for grasses and weeds.

Made with great care and pride in our award-winning factory here in Alberta, Canada, ORIJEN 6 FISH keeps your dog healthy, happy and strong.

ALTHOUGH THEY MAY LOOK VERY DIFFERENT, YOUR DOG SHARES HIS EATING ANATOMY WITH THE GREY WOLF — WHICH MEANS HE'S EVOLVED AS A CARNIVORE AND ADAPTED FOR A DIET RICH IN MEAT — NOT CARBOHYDRATES AND GRAINS.

Based on this biological fact, and to produce a nutritional analysis that mirrors the diet Mother Nature would provide for your dog, ORIJEN 6 FISH for DOGS is loaded with a diversity of nourishing fish proteins and oils, but is limited in carbohydrate.

RICH in FISH and PROTEIN | 80% / 38%

ORIJEN 6 FISH DOG is made with a full 80% of premium fish from wild-caught freshwater and saltwater fish. These high fish inclusions produce a Biologically Appropriate protein level of 38%, which replicates the natural diet and nourishes your dog according to his anatomical adaptation to meat protein.

RICH in FISH OILS | 18%

Animal fats and oils are essential for the peak health of all dogs — that's why ORIJEN is free of plant oils and only features fats of premium animal source. Instead of the highly-processed rendered fats used by conventional pet food makers, over 80% of the fats in ORIJEN occur naturally from high inclusions of fresh never-frozen fish.

DHA & EPA from FRESH FISH | 1.0% / 0.6%

Fresh fish is a perfect source of highly digestible and Biologically Appropriate DHA and EPA Omega-3 fatty acids. Essential for your dog's immune and nervous systems, as well as a glowing skin and hair coat, these richly nourishing fatty acids are not available from plant oils such as flax, coconut or sunflower.

GRAIN-FREE & CARBOHYDRATE LIMITED | 0% / 25%

Your dog's natural diet contains very few, if any, grains or carbohydrates. That's why Biologically Appropriate ORIJEN is grain-free and contains less than half the carbohydrates found in conventional dog foods.

LIMITED CALCIUM & PHOSPHORUS | 1.6% / 1.4%

The potential oversupply of calcium and phosphorus in high-protein dog foods is cause for concern. High inclusions of chicken meal, fish meal or turkey meal used to increase protein levels also provide a rich source of minerals and push calcium and phosphorus levels to the upper allowable limits of, respectively, 2.5% and 1.6%.

GLUCOSAMINE & CHONDROITIN | 1250mg / 1000mg

ORIJEN's high ratios of fresh fish provide a rich source of glucosamine and chondroitin, which is derived naturally from the fresh meat ingredients — without adding synthetic ingredients to the formula.

VETERINARIAN SELECTED BOTANICALS

Providing the element of your dog's natural diet that he craves when foraging for grasses and weeds, ORIJEN's veterinarian-selected botanicals help support your dog's metabolism, strengthen his organs, and serve as cleansers to rid his body of toxins.

OUR INGREDIENT PHILOSOPHY | FRESH AND REGIONAL

We believe dog lovers want to know where the ingredients in their dog's food come from. For this reason we don't buy the inexpensive, bulk commodity ingredients found in conventional dog foods.

Instead, we use ingredients that are sustainably raised within our region by people we know and trust, approved ' fit for human consumption,' and then delivered to our door FRESH.

And as dogs of all breeds and sizes are carnivores — evolved to thrive on a varied diet rich in meats, with smaller amounts of fruits, vegetables and grasses — ORIJEN 6 FISH features a Biologically Appropriate (80.20.0) ingredient ratio of 80% fish, 20% fruit and vegetables, and 0% grain — all slow-cooked at low temperatures to retain their natural goodness.

RICH IN FISH (80%)

All dogs are adapted for a diet rich and diverse in meat proteins — not grains and plant proteins. Made with a full 80% of fish, ORIJEN 6 FISH features high ratios of fish protein to mirror the natural diet.

A RICH VARIETY OF FRESH FISH (6)

The natural diet is diverse, so ORIJEN 6 FISH features a minimum of 6 fresh fish, including salmon, herring and flounder from Canada's cool Pacific ocean, and northern walleye, pike and whitefish* from our cold northern lakes and — ALL DELIVERED FRESH EACH DAY! * Lake Whitefish is a species of fish indigenous to Canada's cold northern lakes, and is not a generic white meat fish.

NO DRY DOG FOOD ON EARTH MATCHES THE QUALITY AND QUANTITY OF ORIJEN'S FRESH FISH INGREDIENTS.

FRUITS and VEGETABLES (20%)

In place of high-glycemic grains such as corn, wheat or white rice, ORIJEN features a full complement of regional fruits and vegetables. While providing a limited amount of carbohydrates, fruits and vegetables provide important vitamins, minerals and protector nutrients in a natural and bioavailable form.

A BIOLOGICALLY APPROPRIATE CALORIE DISTRIBUTION

There are three sources of calories available to your dog: protein, fat and carbohydrates. While protein and fat are essential for your dog; carbohydrates are not. In fact, dogs require absolutely no carbohydrate in their diet.

Simple carbohydrates from cereal grains such as rice or corn can cause your dog's blood sugar levels to elevate and fluctuate and when not used for energy, carbohydrates are quickly and easily stored in the body as fat. Indeed, excess carbohydrates are the leading dietary cause of overweight conditions in dogs of all breeds.

By providing more calories from protein and fat, and fewer calories from carbohydrates, ORIJEN provides a calorie distribution that mirrors your dog's natural diet — promoting a long and happy life by helping reduce the risk of obesity, insulin resistance and diabetes.

CALORIE CONTENT AND DISTRIBUTION
The metabolizable energy of ORIJEN 6 FISH is 4010 kcal/kg or 480 kcal per 250ml cup (120g).

The calories in ORIJEN are distributed to support peak health with 36% from fish protein, 22% from fruits and vegetables, and 42% from fish oil.

YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT, THE OLD ADAGE GOES. WELL THE SAME IS TRUE FOR DOGS — WHICH IS WHY EVERY DOG DESERVES TO EAT ORIJEN.

Protein rich and bursting with fresh local meats and fish, ORIJEN 6 FISH is formulated to mirror the foods mother nature intended dogs of all breeds to eat.

Equally important is the great big 6 FISH taste that your dog won't soon forget — after all, he deserves to enjoy his meals too.

ORIJEN 6 FISH benefits dogs of every breed and size. Like people, your dog is a unique individual and his feeding requirements will vary with his breed, environment, age and activity.

That's why we suggest monitoring his weight and adjusting his rations as needed. We also recommend feeding him twice daily and that you remember to always keep fresh, clean water available to your cherished dog.
