Staying fit and healthy is one of the most important things a dog needs in order to have a long, happy life. As an owner, it is our responsibility to give them the care they need. We need to give them proper exercise, allow them to socialize with other canines, and to feed them a high quality diet. One food that I am writing about today is called Orijen.
Orijen Dog Food excels by matching the foods that dogs naturally evolved to need, thereby providing the ultimate solution to their nutrition. They understand that even though our pets lifestyle have changed over the centuries, the degestive systems have not. Following this simple concept, Orijen has created diets that hold five distinct benefits.
1. High Protein Sources – A dog’s body is adapted for high protein, low carbohydrate diets. They are carnivores as you know. That’s why Orijen diets contain 70% meat. Very high in protein, the various formulas provide amino acids that are essential for optimal health.
2. Grain Free – As was stated earlier, dogs are carnivores. They did no evolve to eat grains. Sy why are they in so many pet foods? Manufacturers and owners wanted to save on cost and wanted more convenient bagged products. Orijen Dog Food doesn’t use this practice. They understand that grains like rice are high in carbohydrates and contribute to obesity and other health problems in dogs.
3. Low Amounts of Carbs – Dogs have no need for carbohydrates. That’s why Orijens don’t use much. Less that 20% of their products are carbohydate. Most premium dog foods use 40% or more. Again, because our pets don’t need them and convert them to fat, this contributes to obesity, diabetes, etc.
4. Fruits and Vegetables – All diets consist of healthy fruits and vegetable which provide important vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals. They use ingredients such as tomatoes, carrots, spinch and apples to name a few.
5. Use of Botanicals – The natural botanicals used in this dog food are selected for their large supportive role as antioxidants in promoting daily health and to aid in solving common health problems.
Orjien puppy food is made with a simple concept that a dogs dietary needs is what a food should consist of. Backed by several studies that prove older beliefs wrong, they have created formulas that meet and exceed the requirements of your canine.
