4 Important Characteristics of Orijen Senior Dog Food
With the promise that it will keep your old pal healthy, happy and strong, Orijen senior dog food is made in an award-winning factory in Alberta, Canada.
With five-stars certifications and some of the best dry senior dog food reviews we have read, we seriously think you should consider this brand for your senior dog for many reasons, but mainly because of these 4 great characteristics:
1. Contains first-quality ingredients
The company believes that you, as a dog owner, want to know where the ingredients in your friend’s food come from; thus their policy is to use only ingredients that have been sustainably raised in the region by people they know and trust.
These ingredients are officially “fit for human consumption” and are delivered to the Orijen factory fresh to ensure your senior dog enjoys a meal free of preservatives and loaded with proteins and fats that will nurture it in full.
2. Contains the best kind of protein
Dogs are carnivore creatures by nature and Orijen understands this perfectly.
Its food contains 75% of a variety of meats rich in proteins, including free-run chicken and turkey, chicken liver, whole eggs, and a prime variety of wild-caught freshwater and saltwater fish that has been responsibly farmed and fished in the region to make sure Orijen is packed with natural and non-rendered Omega-3.
In this way the brand ensures your dog is eating the right and healthy amount of meat and protein that fits its nature.
3. Contains just the right carbohydrates
A dog’s natural diet contains a limited amount of carbohydrates and no grains.
To provide exactly what your senior pal needs, instead of high-glycemic grains like corn, wheat or white rice, Orijen senior dog food contains a healthful amount (25%) of fruits, vegetables and botanicals from the region, such as sea vegetables, juniper berries and marigold flowers, which are rich in B-vitamins, essential minerals and phytonutrients.
These ingredients are all slowly cooked at low temperature to ensure they keep their natural richness so that your dog receives the benefits of a limited amount of carbohydrates with lots of natural vitamins, minerals and nutrients.
4. Does not contain plant oils
Orijen is 100% free of plant oils like sunflower, flax, canola and coconut, which supply Omega-3 in a way that is not good for dogs.
