By nature, all puppies are carnivores- biologically adapted for a diet rich and varied in fresh meats, with smaller amounts of fruits, vegetables and grasses. Designed to match your puppy’s natural diet, Orijen Puppy replicates the healthy and diverse balance of meats, fruits, vegetables and grasses that perfectly support the growth of puppies and young dogs. Loaded with the nourishing meat ingredients (80%) that Mother Nature evolved all puppies to eat, Orijen provides free-run chicken and turkey, whole eggs and wild-caught fish that are farmed or fished locally and delivered fresh so they’re preservative-free, never frozen, and brimming with the proteins and fats that nourish your puppy completely. Carbohydrate-limited and grain-free to duplicate the natural diet, Orijen Puppy supplies healthful regional fruits, vegetables and botanicals – including sea vegetables, juniper berries and marigold flowers – that are naturally rich in phytonutrients, B-vitamins and essential trace minerals.
I bought a Toy Poodle last summer and found that he was getting really dry/flaky skin. I was given some no-name food from the breeder and my vet suggested this may be the problem. After recommendations and a search for the best dog food–I finally found it! My boy absolutely loves it and his itchy skin was gone. His coat is so much softer and shinier now. I recently switched to Orijen Regional Red and he loves it even MORE! If you can get a hold of some of that stuff I suggest you do. It is a little pricier than the other Orijen dog food but I can almost guarantee your dog will love it. Every time one of his puppy pals are over they’re always sniffing and licking his empty bowl. Worth every penny!
Found this on a consumer report website and it had the best reviews. The ingredients are great and it’s one of the best puppy food out there, but my dog just loves the food he was raised on, his royal canin puppy formula. Maybe it’s the smell and the shape? Anyway, I swap back and fourth when the bags run out so he’s happy and I’m happy .
