BIOLOGICALLY APPROPRIATE | FOR ALL LIFE STAGES

NEW ENGLAND MACKEREL, HERRING, FLOUNDER, REDFISH, MONKFISH & SILVER HAKE

PACKED WITH FRESH, SUSTAINABLE, AND WILD-CAUGHT FISH FROM NEW ENGLAND TO SATISFY YOUR CAT’S BIOLOGICAL NEED FOR A DIET RICH IN ANIMAL PROTEIN.

Brimming with 90% quality fish ingredients, and 40% richly nourishing protein, ORIJEN Six Fish nourishes cats and kittens according to their evolutionary and biological needs.

A full 2/3 of our fish ingredients are FRESH (refrigerated, without preservatives) or RAW (flash-frozen, without preservatives), including the top 6 fish ingredients.

Nutrient-dense WholePrey ratios of fresh, whole fish ingredients (including meat, organs, and bone) provide virtually every nutrient your cat needs.

Our dried fish are specially prepared at 200ºF from fresh, whole, wild-caught fish ingredients to create a concentrated source of richly nourishing protein that cannot be supplied by fresh fish alone.

Infusions of gently freeze-dried cod liver enhance flavor and palatability naturally, making ORIJEN deliciously tasty, even for fussy eaters.


IS YOUR CAT'S FOOD BIOLOGICALLY APPROPRIATE?

Cats are hunters and, just like their wild cousins, their teeth, jaws, and digestive system are all adapted for meat-concentrated diets that are rich and diverse in quality animal ingredients. Biologically Appropriate cat foods mirror the natural diet and answer 3 meat questions:

YOUR CAT IS UNIQUE

Your cat or kitten is unique and feeding requirements will vary with environment, age, and activity.

That’s why we suggest starting with the guides below, and then monitoring weight and adjusting portions as needed. Feed twice daily and remember to always keep fresh, clean water available.

OUR BIOLOGICALLY APPROPRIATE PHILOSOPHY

The Near Eastern wildcat is the ancestor and closest relative of all domestic cats. While years of breeding have produced different kinds of cats, the internal workings of wild and domestic cats remain unchanged, so it’s no surprise that their food requirements remain the same too. Our 5 Biologically Appropriate principles are simple and mirror the freshness and variety of quality animal ingredients that cats have evolved to eat.

  • RICH IN FISH (90%) AND PROTEIN (40%)

    All cats are adapted for a diet rich in animal protein. Their sharp teeth and body mechanics are designed to metabolize protein and fat from animal ingredients. ORIJEN is created to nourish your cat or kitten according to her biological needs.

    • 90% fish (2/3 fresh or raw; 1/3 gently dehydrated)
    • 40% richly nourishing fish protein
    • Our dried fish is prepared at 200°F from fresh, whole fish ingredients to create a concentrated source of protein
    • NO gluten, potato, or tapioca
  • UNMATCHED FRESH FISH INCLUSIONS (2/3)

    Fresh, whole, quality animal ingredients are the foundation of award-winning ORIJEN foods.

    • 2/3 of fish ingredients are fresh or raw, supplying your cat with essential nutrients in their most natural and nourishing form.
    • 1/3 are dried and prepared at a low temperature from fresh fish to create a concentrated source of nourishing protein that cannot be supplied by fresh fish alone.
  • AN ABUNDANT VARIETY OF FISH (6)

    In nature, cats benefit from an assortment of animal ingredients. This variety is often lost in conventional cat foods which typically feature a single animal ingredient, such as chicken or lamb, that is highly processed and seldom fresh.

    That’s why award-winning ORIJEN Six Fish features a rich diversity of fresh fish in Biologically Appropriate WholePrey ratios to nourish your cat’s peak health:

    • Fresh, whole, wild-caught mackerel from New England’s Atlantic waters
    • Fresh, whole, wild-caught herring from New England’s Atlantic waters
    • Fresh, whole, wild-caught flounder from New England’s Atlantic waters
    • Fresh, whole, wild-caught Acadian redfish from New England’s Atlantic waters
    • Fresh, whole, wild-caught monkfish from New England’s Atlantic waters
    • Fresh, whole, wild-caught silver hake from New England’s Atlantic waters
  • WHOLEPREY RATIOS

    Mother Nature matched the nutrients in whole animals to perfectly meet your cat’s needs. ORIJEN WholePrey ratios of whole fish ingredients from meat, organs, and bone mirror nature, and eliminate the need for long lists of synthetic ingredients, so only choline, zinc and copper are added.

    The WholePrey diet is a nutritional treasure:

    • Fish – essential for protein and fat as well as Vitamins A, B, D, and K, copper, chromium, folic acid, iron, magnesium, potassium, selenium, and zinc.
    • Organs – packed with virtually every nutrient your cat needs to thrive including vitamins, minerals, healthy fat, and amino acids.
    • Edible Bone – a rich source of minerals including calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, and potassium in a natural form your cat’s body can easily absorb.
  • FRESH VEGETABLES AND FRUIT (10%)

    While cats are obligate carnivores and have no biological requirement for carbohydrates, some cat foods still contain large amounts of potato and tapioca.

    Biologically Appropriate ORIJEN Six Fish is a protein-rich food featuring fresh, whole vegetables and fruit which release sugar slowly, dramatically reducing the potential for fat storage.
