By nature, dogs of all breeds and sizes are evolved as carnivores – biologically adapted for a diet rich and varied in fresh meats, with smaller amounts for fruits, vegetables and grasses. Yet as dogs age, they also become less efficient at metabolizing the very proteins vital to their well being – so appropriately high levels of dietary protein is essential for enabling your senior dog’s peak conditioning. That’s why Orijen puppy food is loaded with the protein-packed animal ingredients (75%) that Mother Nature evolved all dogs to eat, with high ratios of free-run chicken and turkey, whole eggs and wild-caught fish – farmed or fished locally and delivered fresh each day so they’re preservative-free and brimming with proteins and fats to nourish your older dog completely. Carbohydrate-limited and grain-free to replicate your senior dog’s natural diet, Orijen Senior supplies healthful regional fruits, vegetables and botanicals – including sea vegetables, juniper berries and marigold flowers – naturally rich in phytonutrients, B-vitamins and essential trace minerals.
I have been feeding my German Shepherd Orijen dog food since he was a pup (started on the LBP forumla). I love this food. He doesn’t have to eat as much to maintain his weight…meaning less poop! His poop doesn’t smell that bad and it is firm and good color. He LOVES this food too. Has a healthy coat and plenty of energy. No sign of anything lacking in his diet and no worries from me that it isn’t safe to feed him. If you can’t feed raw this is the next best thing.
