Orijen puppy food 75/25 Formula Senior Dry Dog Food is a grain-free formula, containing the appropriate balance of premium animal ingredients (75%) with fruits, vegetables and botanicals (25%) that senior dogs of all breeds would need for complete nourishment. Free-run chicken and turkey, whole eggs and wild-caught fish are farmed or fished within the Canadian region by people known and trusted by Champion Petfoods. Quality is never outsourced! The first 5 ingredients are FRESH MEAT, which are low in calcium and phosphorus, helping to make the formula balanced. Using this high amount of fresh meat gives the kibble a unique shape, smell and color. And although your dog may look very different from a grey wolf, they share the same eating anatomy as a carnivore with a diet rich in meat, not carbohydrates or grains.
My dogs love this food. My vet also highly approved of this food. My dog was having some seizures and was not doing well. I thought about what animals eat in the wild and decided that grains were not commonly eaten by canines. My daughter told me about this food and recommended that I try it. I researched this food on line and found it to be grain free. However, it was a little more expensive than I would like, so I searched for it at Amazon and found it for a lot less money. My dog was taken off of some medication that was suspected of causing her seizures and I started feeding her Orijen dog food mixed with warm water, I wanted to increase her water intake, she was having difficulty lapping up water in the unusual way. She is much better now. I believe this natural food is better for her and she loves it!
Wow, was I surprised when this dog food arrived. It comes in a vacuum packed bag, which will maintain freshess, so that at the get-go really impressed me. When you open the bag it smells fresh and my dog, who is a very picky eater, wanted it right away. As another poster recommended, slowly introduce this food to your pet. I thought that I did, but she got bad diarhea, probably because she isn’t accustomed to eating food made with the ingredients specific to dogs. I had to back her off and we’ll go back to it more slowly. I will definitely buy again and recommend it to others.
