ORIJEN Original is made with meat, organs, cartilage, and edible bone from free-run chicken and turkey, wild-caught fish, and cage-free eggs. Two-thirds of our animal ingredients are FRESH or RAW, for a concentrated source of protein. With 85% quality animal ingredients and infusions of freeze-dried liver, this recipe nourishes your dog as nature intended while offering them a flavor that they love.
