BIOLOGICALLY APPROPRIATE™ FOOD FOR CATS
FREE-RUN CHICKEN AND TURKEY, WILD-CAUGHT FISH AND NEST-LAID EGGS
MODERN CATS AND KITTENS ARE BUILT LIKE THEIR ANCESTORS, POSSESSING A BIOLOGICAL NEED FOR A DIET THAT’S RICH AND VARIED IN ANIMAL PROTEIN.
With 40% richly nourishing protein, and limited to 20% low-glycemic carbohydrates to nourish cats and kittens 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 cat needs.
Infusions of gently freeze-dried liver enhance flavor and palatability naturally, making ORIJEN deliciously tasty, even for picky eaters.
IS YOUR FOOD BIOLOGICALLY APPROPRIATE™?
Cats evolved as hunters – the structure of their teeth, jaws and digestive system scientifically classifies them as obligate carnivores, evolved to eat a meat-based diet. They require high concentrations of meat, high inclusions of fresh meat, and a rich diversity of meat.
Biologically Appropriate™ foods mirror the natural diet and are able to answer 3 meat questions:
90% MEAT INCLUSIONS
