Orijen has a very loyal following. It’s easy to understand why – the ingredients are fantastic. It boasts one of the highest protein and lowest carb percentages of any dry pet food.

The Canadian manufacturer Champion Petfoods boldly claim to make “The World’s Best Petfood”, and in our opinion they’re definitely up there with the best. Find out why in our Orijen dog food review!

Orijen dog food review

Let’s take a look at the ingredients of Orijen Original as a bench mark for all in the range. We see a focus on meat and fish, which is great given a dog is essentially a carnivore!

Deboned chicken, deboned turkey, yellowtail flounder, whole eggs, whole atlantic mackerel, chicken liver, turkey liver, chicken heart, turkey heart, whole atlantic herring, dehydrated chicken, dehydrated turkey, dehydrated mackerel, dehydrated chicken liver, dehydrated turkey liver… drool!

What’s great about this food is they use whole prey. Deboned chicken is the whole chicken, inclusive of organs, just without the bones. This is so much better than many pet foods in which the chicken content is whatever can’t be sold for human consumption (so mostly carcass).

I task you to find another dry dog food in Australia which boasts such an incredible ingredients list. Meat, fish, and eggs amounts to 85% of the product, 15% vegetables, fruits, and botanicals, and 0% grains, potato, tapioca, or any other fillers. That’s very impressive, and if all dog foods had ingredients like that we’d likely have a wonderfully healthy dog population.

The range of lentils, beans, peas, and chickpeas would make a vegan salivate, and the plethora of fruits and vegetables would put a farmers market to shame.

There are no artificial substances, antioxidants, or preservatives in the product. It’s simply all good. Brilliant. Highly recommended.
