ALL DOGS ARE ADAPTED TO THRIVE ON A VARIED DIET OF WHOLE GAME, FISH, AND FOWL, WITH SMALLER AMOUNTS OF VEGETABLES AND FRUIT
With 85% quality animal ingredients, and 40% richly nourishing protein, ORIJEN Tundra nourishes dogs of all life stages according to their evolutionary and biological needs.
A full 2/3 of our animal ingredients are FRESH (refrigerated, without artificial preservatives) or RAW (flash-frozen, without artificial preservatives), including the top 10 ingredients.
Gently freeze-dried in our kitchen, with only natural preservatives, to lock in the rich nutrients and delicious flavor that dogs crave.
WholePrey ratios of fresh, quality animal ingredients from meat, organs, and cartilage or bone deliver the nutrients your dog requires, naturally.
IS YOUR DOG'S FOOD BIOLOGICALLY APPROPRIATE?
Dogs evolved as hunters and, just like their wild cousins, their teeth, jaws, and digestive system are all adapted for meat-concentrated diets that are diverse and rich in protein. Biologically Appropriate foods mirror the natural diet and answer 3 meat questions:
ORIJEN leads its class in premium meat inclusions.
All from animals from federally inspected facilities prior to inclusion in our foods.
2/3 of meats are FRESH or RAW and loaded with goodness.
1/3 is dried at low temperature for a premium protein source.
A variety of meats in WholePrey ratios supply nutrients naturally, dramatically reducing the need for synthetic supplements.
Wild-caught Arctic Char
Wild-Caught Pacific Pilchard
In nature there are no synthetic supplements, so dogs and wolves derive their complete nutritional needs naturally by consuming whole animals, which contain all of the nutrients they need for peak health.
That’s why you won’t find long lists of synthetics in ORIJEN dog foods. Focusing on rich inclusions of fresh meat, and higher inclusions of animal ingredients, ORIJEN foods are the ancestral diet that dogs have evolved to eat. Loaded with richly nourishing ratios of fresh, quality animal ingredients from meat, organs, and cartilage or bone, plus wild-caught fish and cage-free eggs, ORIJEN provides a natural source of virtually every nutrient your dog needs to thrive.

NOURISH AS NATURE INTENDED
Your dog shares his eating anatomy with the gray wolf, which means he’s evolved for a diet rich and varied in fresh meat, protein, and fat – not highly processed carbohydrates and starches.
Crude protein (min.) 40 % Crude fat (min.) 18 % Crude fiber (max.) 5 % Moisture (max.) 12 % EPA (min.) 0.2 % DHA (min.) 0.35 % Calcium (min.) 1.8 % Phosphorus (min.) 1.3 % Omega-6 fatty acids* (min.) 2.5 % Omega-3 fatty acids* (min.) 1 % Glucosamine* (min.) 400 mg/kg Chondroitin sulfate* (min.) 400 mg/kg Total Microorganisms* (min.)

YOUR DOG IS UNIQUE
Your dog 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.
† Use a standard 8-ounce measuring cup. Serve dry or lightly moistened. See your veterinarian regularly. To help maintain freshness, we recommend sealing the bag tightly and storing it in a cool, dry location.
ORIJEN Tundra is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Dog Food Nutrient Profiles for all life stages.
ORIJEN Tundra provides more calories from protein and fat and fewer from carbohydrates, providing a calorie distribution that mirrors a natural diet.
Metabolizable Energy is 3860 kcal/kg (460 kcal per 250ml/120g cup) with calories distributed to support peak conditioning; 41% from protein, 17% from carbohydrates, and 42% from fat.
OUR BIOLOGICALLY APPROPRIATE PHILOSOPHY
The gray wolf is the ancestor and closest relative of all domestic dogs. While years of breeding have produced hundreds of ‘different-looking wolves’, the internal workings of wolves and dogs remain unchanged. So it’s no surprise that their food requirements remain the same too. Our five Biologically Appropriate principles are simple and mirror the freshness and variety of animal ingredients that dogs have evolved to eat.
All dogs have sharp teeth and a body designed to metabolize protein and fat from meat. ORIJEN is designed to nourish your dog according to his evolutionary and biological needs.
- 85% quality animal ingredients (2/3 fresh or raw and 1/3 gently dehydrated)
- 40% richly nourishing animal protein
- NO potato, tapioca, or gluten
Fresh meats and fish are the foundation of award-winning ORIJEN foods.
- 2/3 of the animal ingredients are fresh or raw, supplying your dog with essential nutrients in their most natural and nourishing form.
- 1/3 is dehydrated for a concentrated source of nourishing meat protein that cannot be supplied by fresh animal ingredients alone.
In nature, dogs benefit from an assortment of animal ingredients. This variety is often lost in conventional dog 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 Tundra features a rich diversity of fresh game, fish, and fowl in Biologically Appropriate WholePrey ratios to nourish for peak health:
- Fresh Boer Goat from New Zealand
- Wild Boar from Texas
- Fresh Venison from New Zealand
- Whole Arctic Char from cold Yukon waters
- Free-Run Duck from Kentucky, France and PA
- Ranch-Raised Mutton from New Zealand and Australia
- Whole Steelhead Trout from Ontario Lakes
- Whole Pacific Pilchard from Norpel (US)
Mother Nature matched the nutrients in whole animals and fish to perfectly meet your dog’s needs. ORIJEN WholePrey ratios of meat, organs, and cartilage or bone mirror nature and eliminate the need for long lists of synthetic ingredients.
The WholePrey diet is a nutritional treasure:
- Meat – 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 dog’s needs to thrive including vitamins, minerals, healthy fats and amino acids.
- Edible Bone – a rich source of minerals including calcium, phosphorus, magnesium and potassium in natural form your dog’s body can easily absorb.
While dogs (and puppies) have no nutritional requirement for carbohydrates, some foods still contain large amounts of potato and tapioca.
Biologically Appropriate ORIJEN Tundra is a protein-rich food featuring only fresh vegetables and fruit, which release sugar slowly, dramatically reducing the potential for fat storage.
