AWARD-WINNING, BIOLOGICALLY APPROPRIATE PET FOODS

DOGS AND CATS EVOLVED AS HUNTERS — THE STRUCTURE OF THEIR TEETH, JAWS AND DIGESTIVE SYSTEM SCIENTIFICALLY CLASSIFIES THEM AS CARNIVORES, EVOLVED TO OPERATE ON AN MEAT-BASED DIET.

Yet witness the current trend of 'holistic' pet foods that are grain-based, contain little meat or protein, exceed 40% in carbohydrates, and feature fashionable ingredients — more often for their consumer appeal than for any nutritional benefit to dogs or cats.

THE BIOLOGICALLY APPROPRIATE CONCEPT IS SIMPLE: MIRROR THE BALANCE AND VARIETY OF FOODS THAT DOGS AND CATS WOULD NATURALLY FIND HUNTING IN THE WILD AND FOR WHICH THEY ARE EVOLVED TO EAT.

Biologically Appropriate foods contain high and various inclusions of the meats that Mother Nature evolved dogs and cats to eat, while excluding many of today's conventional pet food ingredients, such as high glycemic grains and inappropriate vegetable proteins — ingredients that simply don't belong in the natural diet.

Protein-rich, carbohydrate-limited and grain-free, Biologically Appropriate ORIJEN is loaded with richly nourishing meats, including free-run poultry, whole eggs, free-range red meats and wild-caught fish — all in a Biologically Appropriate ratio of 80 percent meat, 20 percent fruits and vegetables, and zero grain (80.20.0).

By better matching the foods that dogs and cats are evolved to eat, Biologically Appropriate ORIJEN 'Nourishes as Nature Intended', resulting in the peak health of your cherished dog or cat.

Meet our local farmers and fishermen and see why ORIJEN's FRESH REGIONAL INGREDIENTS are unmatched by any other pet food on earth.

The ORIJEN WHITEPAPER explains our BIOLOGICALLY APPROPRIATE philosophy.
