BIOLOGICALLY APPROPRIATE FREEZE-DRIED FOOD
Made with free-run chicken & turkey, wild-caught fish and cage-free eggs
All dogs have evolved to eat a varied diet of whole poultry and fish, with small amounts of vegetables and fruit.
Gently freeze-dried in our own kitchen with only natural preservatives, to lock in natural, vitalizing goodness, and provide all the flavor and nutritional benefits of raw foods with a taste that dogs crave.
Raw meat is the foundation of ORIJEN freeze-dried food. All of our ingredients are delivered to our kitchen, where our freeze-drying process provides all the benefits of a raw diet in a convenient dry form.
Nourishing WholePrey ratios of poultry, fish, organs, and cartilage or bone provide a natural source of nutrients your dog needs to thrive.
Quick and easy, ORIJEN takes only 3-5 minutes to prepare by adding ¼ cup of warm water to each medallion to rehydrate. Feed as a nutritious meal or use as a flavorful topper.
90% QUALITY ANIMAL INGREDIENTS | 100% RAW
We mirror Mother Nature by incorporating whole poultry, organs, and cartilage or bone to supply nutrients naturally, eliminating the unnecessary long lists of synthetic supplements that your dog doesn’t need.
100% poultry, eggs, fish, and vegetables and fruit are delivered to us raw, then gently freeze-dried in our kitchen with only natural preservatives, locking in the food’s nutritional integrity.
FREEZE-DRYING | THE ULTIMATE CONVENIENT RAW FOODS
ORIJEN Original freeze-dried food is gently freeze-dried, retaining all of the natural goodness of our quality ingredients without the addition of synthetic preservatives. Our freeze-dry kitchen is equipped with nitrogen tunnels which flash-freeze ingredients at extremely low temperatures (-55 to -70°F), locking in their vitalizing nutrients. An 18-hour freeze-drying process gently converts the water frozen in the ingredients into ice vapor. This means only water is removed from our ingredients, leaving behind all of their goodness in a concentrated form, creating a nourishing taste experience your dog will love.
