Product Description


Designed to match your puppy's natural diet, ORIJEN PUPPY replicates the healthy and diverse balance of meats, fruits, vegetables and grasses that perfectly support the growth of puppies and young dogs. 

Loaded with the nourishing meat ingredients (80%) that Mother Nature evolved all puppies to eat, ORIJEN provides free-run chicken and turkey, whole eggs and wild-caught fish THAT ARE FARMED OR FISHED WITHIN OUR REGION AND DELIVERED FRESH — so they're preservative-free, never frozen, and brimming with the proteins and fats that nourish your puppy completely.

Carbohydrate-limited and grain-free to duplicate the natural diet, ORIJEN PUPPY supplies healthful regional fruits, vegetables and botanicals — including sea vegetables, juniper berries and marigold flowers — that are naturally rich in phytonutrients, B-vitamins and essential trace minerals.


Based on this biological fact, and to produce a nutritional analysis that mirrors the diet Mother Nature would provide for your puppy, ORIJEN Puppy is loaded with a diversity of nourishing meat proteins and fats, and is limited in carbohydrate.

Calorie Content:  490 kcal/cup

RICH in MEAT & PROTEIN | 80% / 40%:  ORIJEN PUPPY is made with a full 80% of meat from free-run chicken and turkey, fresh whole eggs and wild-caught fish. These high meat inclusions produce a Biologically Appropriate protein level of 40%, which replicates the natural diet and nourishes your puppy according to his anatomical adaptation to meat protein.

RICH in ANIMAL FAT | 20%:  Animal fats and oils are essential for the peak health of all puppies — that's why ORIJEN is free of plant oils and only features fats of premium animal source. Instead of the highly-processed rendered fats used by conventional pet food makers, over 90% of the fats in ORIJEN occur naturally from high inclusions of fresh chicken, turkey, fish and egg.

DHA & EPA from FRESH FISH | 0.6% / 0.3%:  Fresh fish is a perfect source of highly digestible and Biologically Appropriate DHA and EPA Omega-3 fatty acids. Essential for your puppy's developing immune and nervous systems, as well as his glowing skin and hair coat, these richly nourishing fatty acids are not available from plant oils such as flax, coconut or sunflower.

GRAIN-FREE & CARBOHYDRATE LIMITED | 0% / 20%:  Your puppy's natural diet contains very few, if any grains or carbohydrates. That's why Biologically Appropriate ORIJEN is grain-free and contains less than half the carbohydrates found in conventional puppy foods.

LIMITED CALCIUM & PHOSPHORUS | 1.7% / 1.4%:  The potential oversupply of calcium and phosphorus in high-protein puppy foods is cause for concern. High inclusions of chicken meal, fish meal or turkey meal used to increase protein levels also provide a rich source of minerals and push calcium and phosphorus levels to the upper allowable limits of, respectively, 2.5% and 1.6%. To eliminate these concerns, ORIJEN Puppy has limited calcium and phosphorus, with a guaranteed maximum of 1.7% and 1.4% respectively.

GLUCOSAMINE & CHONDROITIN | 1500mg / 1200mg:  ORIJEN's high ratios of fresh poultry, meats and fish provide a rich source of glucosamine and chondroitin — which is derived naturally from the fresh meat ingredients, without adding synthetic ingredients to the formula.

VETERINARIAN SELECTED BOTANICALS:  Providing the element of your puppy's natural diet that he craves when foraging for grasses and weeds, ORIJEN's veterinarian-selected botanicals help support your puppy's metabolism, strengthen his organs, and serve as cleansers to rid his body of toxins.

OUR INGREDIENT PHILOSOPHY | FRESH AND REGIONAL:  We believe dog lovers want to know where the ingredients in their puppy's food come from. For this reason we don't buy the inexpensive, bulk commodity ingredients found in conventional puppy foods.  Instead, we use ingredients that are sustainably raised within our region by people we know and trust, approved ' fit for human consumption,' and then delivered to our door FRESH.  And as puppies of all breeds and sizes are carnivores — evolved to thrive on a varied diet rich in meats, with smaller amounts of fruits, vegetables and grasses — ORIJEN PUPPY features a Biologically Appropriate (80.20.0) ingredient ratio of 80% meat, 20% fruit and vegetables, and 0% grain — all slow-cooked at low temperatures to retain their natural goodness.

RICH IN MEAT (80%):  All puppies are adapted for a diet rich and diverse in meat proteins — not grains and plant proteins. With 80% of poultry, eggs, meat and fish, ORIJEN PUPPY features high ratios of meat and protein to mirror the natural puppy diet.

A RICH VARIETY OF FRESH MEATS (6):  The natural puppy diet is seasonal and diverse, so ORIJEN features 6 fresh meats, including free-run chicken and turkey, chicken liver, and whole eggs, and a superb selection of wild-caught fish — all delivered fresh each day!  NO DRY PUPPY FOOD ON EARTH MATCHES THE QUALITY AND QUANTITY OF ORIJEN'S FRESH MEAT INGREDIENTS.

FRUITS and VEGETABLES (20%):  In place of high-glycemic grains such as corn, wheat or white rice, ORIJEN PUPPY features a full complement of regional fruits and vegetables.  While providing a limited amount of carbohydrates, fruits and vegetables provide important vitamins, minerals and protector nutrients in a natural and bioavailable form.

GRAIN-FREE (0):  To match the natural diet of puppies ORIJEN PUPPY is grain-free and carbohydrate-limited.

FRESH FISH (2):  ORIJEN features world-class freshwater and saltwater fish — harvested responsibly within our region and DELIVERED FRESH, so they're loaded with natural-source, non-rendered Omega-3 (DHA, EPA).  All ORIJEN foods are free of plant oils such as sunflower, flax, coconut or canola oils all of which provide Omega-3 in a form that is ineffective for dogs.
