Orijen - Dog Food for Senior - 11.4KG
Loaded with cage-free chicken and turkey, nest-laid eggs and wild-caught fish — all farmed or fished within the region and delivered FRESH — ORIJEN SENIOR is brimming with goodness to support lean muscle mass, with calories delivered to support the peak health of more sedentary dogs.
BY NATURE, DOGS OF ALL BREEDS AND SIZES ARE EVOLVED AS CARNIVORES — BIOLOGICALLY ADAPTED FOR A DIET RICH AND VARIED IN FRESH MEATS, WITH SMALLER AMOUNTS OF FRUITS, VEGETABLES AND GRASSES.
That's why we load ORIJEN Senior with the protein-packed animal ingredients (75%) that Mother Nature evolved all dogs to eat, with high ratios of free-run chicken and turkey, whole eggs and wild-caught fish — farmed or fished within our region and delivered FRESH each day so they're preservative-free and brimming with proteins and fats to nourish your older dog completely.
Carbohydrate-limited and grain-free to replicate your senior dog's natural diet, ORIJEN Senior supplies healthful regional fruits, vegetables and botanicals — including sea vegetables, juniper berries and marigold flowers — naturally rich in phytonutrients, B-vitamins and essential trace minerals.
Made with great care and pride in our award-winning factory here in Alberta, Canada, ORIJEN Senior keeps your elder dog healthy, happy and strong.
ORIJEN SENIOR DOG is loaded with a diversity of nourishing meat proteins and fats, but is limited in carbohydrate.
RICH in MEAT & PROTEIN | 75% / 38%
ORIJEN Senior is made with a full 75% of meat from free-run chicken and turkey, fresh whole eggs and wild-caught fish. These high meat inclusions produce a Biologically Appropriate protein level of 38%, which replicates the natural diet and nourishes your senior dog according to his anatomical adaptation to meat protein.
MODERATE in ANIMAL FAT | 15%
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 90% of the fats in ORIJEN occur naturally from high inclusions of fresh meats from chicken, turkey, fish and egg.
DHA & EPA from FRESH FISH | 0.6% / 0.3%
Fresh fish is a perfect source of highly digestible and Biologically Appropriate DHA and EPA Omega-3 fatty acids. Essential for your senior 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 senior 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 | 1400mg / 1200mg
ORIJEN's high ratios of fresh poultry, meats and 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.
