PUPPIES OF ALL BREEDS EVOLVED AS CARNIVORES, POSSESSING A BIOLOGICAL NEED FOR A DIET RICH AND VARIED IN FRESH WHOLE MEATS, WITH SMALLER AMOUNTS OF WHOLE FRUITS, VEGETABLES AND GRASSES.
That’s why ORIJEN delivers a symphony of cage-free chicken and turkey, nest-laid eggs, and wild-caught walleye and herring — all raised or fished within our region and delivered to our kitchens FRESH EACH DAY, so they’re brimming with goodness to perfectly nourish the growth of puppies.
Loaded with the richly-nourishing proteins and fats that all puppies require for peak health, ORIJEN’s award-winning low-glycemic puppy food supports lean muscle mass while supplying all of the energy your puppy needs to take on his exciting world.
Prepared from Canada’s best and freshest ingredients in our award-winning kitchens, ORIJEN is guaranteed to keep your puppy happy, healthy and strong.
THERE ARE THREE SOURCES OF CALORIES AVAILABLE TO YOUR PUPPY: PROTEIN, FAT AND CARBOHYDRATES. 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
ME (calculated metabolizable energy) is 4080 kcal/kg (490 kcal per 250ml/120g cup).

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.
