BIOLOGICALLY APPROPRIATE FREEZE-DRIED FOOD

Made with Ranch-raised Meat and Wild-caught fish

All dogs have evolved to eat a varied diet of whole, quality animal ingredients, with small amounts of vegetables and fruit.

Gently freeze-dried in our own kitchen with only natural preservatives, locking in natural, life-giving goodness and providing all the flavor and nutritional benefits of raw food.

Raw, quality animal ingredients are the foundation of ORIJEN freeze-dried food. All of our ingredients are delivered to our kitchen where our freeze-drying process provides all the benefits of a raw diet in a convenient dry form.

Nourishing WholePrey ratios of quality animal ingredients from meat, organs, and cartilage or bone provide natural sources of the nutrients your dog needs to thrive with a taste they'll love.

Quick and easy, ORIJEN takes only 3-5 minutes to prepare by adding ¼ cup of warm water to each medallion to rehydrate. Feed as a nutritious meal or use as a flavorful topper.


90% QUALITY ANIMAL INGREDIENTS | 100% RAW


BIOLOGICALLY APPROPRIATE | EVOLUTIONARY DIET

MEAT | ORGANS | CARTILAGE or BONE

We mirror Mother Nature by incorporating whole, quality animal ingredients from meat, organs, and cartilage or bone to supply nutrients naturally, eliminating the unnecessary long lists of synthetic supplements that your dog doesn’t need.


100% raw, quality animal ingredients, and vegetables and fruit, are delivered to our kitchen where they’re gently freeze-dried, locking in the food’s nutritional integrity.


FREEZE-DRYING | THE ULTIMATE CONVENIENT RAW FOODS

ORIJEN Regional Red Freeze-Dried Foods are gently freeze-dried, retaining all of the natural goodness of our quality ingredients without the addition of synthetic preservatives. Our freeze-dry kitchen is equipped with nitrogen tunnels which flash-freeze ingredients at extremely low temperatures (-55 to -70°F), locking in their vitalizing nutrients.

An 18-hour freeze-drying process gently converts the water frozen in the ingredients into ice vapor. This means only water is removed from our ingredients, leaving behind all of their goodness in a concentrated form, creating a nourishing taste experience your dog will love.
