SURROUNDED BY ATLANTIC, PACIFIC AND ARCTIC OCEANS, CANADA IS HOME TO VAST, UNPOLLUTED FRESHWATER LAKES AND BOASTS A WORLD-CLASS MARINE HARVEST.
Reflecting our rich marine harvest, and meeting your cat's evolutionary need for abundant daily protein, we make ORIJEN 6 FISH with high ratios of salmon, herring and flounder from Vancouver's cool Pacific Northwest waters, plus wild-caught whitefish, walleye and northern pike from our cold northern lakes — all delivered FRESH, preservative-free, and bursting with the proteins and fats that nourish your cat or kitten completely.
Carbohydrate-limited and grain-free to match your cat's natural diet, ORIJEN 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.
Made with great care and pride in our award-winning factory here in Alberta, Canada, ORIJEN 6 FISH for CATS keeps your cat healthy, happy and strong.
ALTHOUGH THEY MAY LOOK VERY DIFFERENT, YOUR CAT OR KITTEN SHARES HER EATING ANATOMY WITH THE LEOPARD — WHICH MEANS SHE'S EVOLVED AS A CARNIVORE AND ADAPTED FOR A DIET RICH IN MEAT — NOT CARBOHYDRATES AND GRAINS.
Based on this biological fact, and to produce a nutritional analysis that mirrors the diet Mother Nature would provide for your cat or kitten, ORIJEN 6 FISH for CATS is loaded with a diversity of nourishing fish proteins and oils, but is limited in carbohydrate.
RICH in FISH and PROTEIN | 80% / 42%: ORIJEN 6 FISH for CATS is made with a full 80% of meat from wild-caught fish. These high fish inclusions produce a Biologically Appropriate protein level of 42%, which replicates the natural diet and nourishes your cat or kitten according to her anatomical adaptation to protein from meat.
RICH in FISH OILS | 20%: Animal fats and oils are essential for the peak health of all cats — 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 cat food makers, over 90% of the fats in ORIJEN occur naturally from high inclusions of fresh never-frozen fish.
DHA & EPA from FRESH FISH | 0.7% / 0.4%: Fresh fish is a perfect source of highly digestible and Biologically Appropriate DHA and EPA Omega-3 fatty acids. Essential for your cat's immune and nervous systems, as well as a 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 cat's natural diet contains very few, if any, grains or carbohydrates. That's why Biologically Appropriate ORIJEN is free of grain and contains less than half the carbohydrates found in conventional cat foods.
NATURAL SOURCE TAURINE | 0.5%: ORIJEN's high ratios of fresh fish provide a rich source of taurine, which is derived naturally from the fresh fish ingredients — without adding synthetic ingredients to the formula.
GLUCOSAMINE & CHONDROITIN | 1400mg / 1000mg: ORIJEN's high ratios of fresh fish provide a rich source of glucosamine and chondroitin, which is derived naturally from the fresh fish ingredients — without adding synthetic ingredients to the formula.
VETERINARIAN SELECTED BOTANICALS: Providing the element of your cat's natural diet that she craves when foraging for grasses and weeds, ORIJEN's veterinarian-selected botanicals help support your cat's metabolism, strengthen her organs, and serve as cleansers to rid her body of toxins.

OUR INGREDIENT PHILOSOPHY | FRESH and REGIONAL: Because we believe cat lovers want to know where the ingredients in their cat's food come from, we don't buy the inexpensive, bulk commodity ingredients found in conventional cat 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 because all cats are carnivores — evolved to thrive on a varied diet rich in meats, with smaller amounts of fruits, vegetables and grasses — ORIJEN 6 FISH for CATS features a Biologically Appropriate (80.20.0) ingredient ratio of 80% fish, 20% fruit and vegetables, and 0% grain — all slow-cooked at low temperatures to retain their natural goodness.
RICH IN FISH (80%): All cats are adapted for a diet rich and diverse in meat proteins — not grains and plant proteins. Made with a full 80% of fish, ORIJEN 6 FISH features high ratios of fish protein to mirror the natural feline diet.
A RICH VARIETY OF FRESH FISH (6): The natural diet is diverse, so ORIJEN 6 FISH features six fresh fish, including salmon, herring and flounder from Canada's cool Pacific ocean, and northern walleye, pike and whitefish* from our cold northern lakes — ALL DELIVERED FRESH EACH DAY! * Lake Whitefish is a species of fish indigenous to Canada's cold northern lakes, and is not a generic white meat fish.
FRUITS and VEGETABLES (20%): In place of high-glycemic grains such as corn, wheat or white rice, ORIJEN 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): All ORIJEN foods are grain-free and carbohydrate-limited to match the natural diet of cats.
FRESH FISH (6): 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.
