Puppy Formula, 4.5lb (USA)
ALL PUPPIES REQUIRE A DIET RICH IN PROTEINS AND FATS FROM A VARIETY OF FRESH WHOLE MEATS TO FULLY SUPPORT THEIR RAPID GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT.
- 85% Poultry | Fish | Egg Ingredients
- 15% Vegetables | Fruits | Botanicals
- 0% Grain | Potato | Tapioca | Plant Protein Concentrates
With 38% richly nourishing protein, and limited to 20% low-glycemic carbohydrates to nourish medium and small breed puppies according to their evolutionary and biological needs. Free of rendered poultry meals, 1/3 of the meats are from dehydrated chicken and turkey (air-dried at low temperature from fresh meat) for a concentrated source of nourishing protein. Unmatched by any other food, 2/3 of the meats are FRESH (refrigerated, without preservatives) or RAW (flash-frozen, without preservatives), including the top 10 meat ingredients. Nutrient-dense WholePrey™ ratios of fresh meats, organs, and cartilage plus fresh whole fish and fresh whole eggs provide a natural source of virtually every nutrient your puppy needs. Infusions of freeze-dried chicken and turkey liver enhance flavor and palatability naturally, making ORIJEN deliciously tasty, even for the fussiest puppies.
MEAT AND PROTEIN RICH
Made with 85% premium meat ingredients, ORIJEN Puppy features a richly nourishing and Biologically Appropriate™ protein level of 38% to closely replicate your puppy’s natural diet.
RICH IN ANIMAL FAT
To fuel optimum growth and development, all puppies require richly nourishing animal fats. That’s why ORIJEN Puppy features naturally occurring non-rendered fats from our unmatched fresh poultry, fish and egg ingredients.
DHA AND EPA FROM FRESH FISH
Fresh saltwater fish are a Biologically Appropriate™ source of DHA and EPA, which are essential for your puppy’s developing immune and nervous systems. DHA and EPA are not available from plant sources, such as flax, coconut or sunflower.
Your puppy’s natural diet contains few if any carbohydrates. That’s why ORIJEN is free of high-glycemic ingredients like potato and tapioca, and contains less than half the carbohydrates of conventional puppy foods.
GLUCOSAMINE & CHONDROITIN
ORIJEN’s fresh poultry, meats and fish provide a rich and natural source of glucosamine and chondroitin, so no synthetic sources are added to ORIJEN foods.
