Orijen Dog Food Review and Updates

Our friends Mr Chewy and Brent at asked us to write an honest review of one of the Orijen products they sell.  They sent us a free bag of the Orijen Six Fish Dry Dog Food that we requested.

As usual, the box of requested food was received extremely quick!  We DO love!

I'm not going to go into a lot of details about Orijen or Orijen Six Fish dog food.  I have links at the end of this review has are very specific.  The Orijen website is excellent, please visit.

Orijen is made with only the freshest regional ingredients.  Their foods are matched to the digestive systems of both dogs and cats. Orijen brings peace of mind to owners by promoting peak health of their pets in addition to containing natural flavors that pets crave.

Active dogs require a meat-based diet, rich in animal protein and fat. Champion Petfoods uses free-run poultry, wild caught fish and free-range red meats for Orijen. Coupled with these fresh meats are fruits and vegetables, health-boosting herbs and balanced mineral content for the healthiest meal pets can get.
Orijen is grain-free for more controlled blood sugar levels and excludes ineffective nutrients from plant oils as compared to other brands.

Champion works closely with local farmers, fishermen,  food processing innovators and the scientific community to produce the highest quality products. Arriving fresh from the region each day, the meat is never frozen and never exposed to heat or chemicals.  The harvested fruit and vegetables are ripe with vitamins and enzymes and antioxidants. The natural herbs help strengthen organs and tissues while supporting the digestion process of your pet.

All these fresh ingredients are processed  under the Canadian Food Inspection Agency's highest food safety standard. Even the ingredient suppliers are approved by the US Department of Agriculture.

I have a reason for reviewing Orijen Six Fish.  If you have followed our blog, you know that until Minnie was diagnosed with Pancreatitis last summer,  I made their food, the raw diet with raw meaty bones.  The vet said Minnie would be better off on a prescription kibble.  There was no way I wanted Minnie to go through what she had gone through with pancreatitis, so without much hesitation  I decided to make the switch for Minnie to her prescription kibble.  Then the big decision was what food would I feed Mack.  Mack has a BIG allergy problem, from head to tail, which was one of the main reasons I was making their food. I reviewed a lot of written material, talked to a lot of "dog" people including our vet and talked to the folks at our local Whole Pet Central pet food store about what food would be best for Mack and his allergies.  Our local store provided me with some samples, one of which was Orijen.  After a trial period for each food, Mack did the best on Orijen.  Orijen is high in protein, low in carbs and grain free.   We started out with Orijen Senior.  I now mix a combination of Senior and Six Fish.  He LOVES it. His has maintained a healthy weight, which is hard to do in a neutered, senior pug who likes to sleep on the couch and watch TV!  He has been able to completely stop his oral medications for his allergies.  His stools are nicely formed and I wish I could say they don't stink, but they still could always wish.

I have included some reviews of Orijen below along with the website for Champion Pet Foods of Canada that make Orijen Six Fish.  I don't believe that Orijen foods are anymore expensive than most premium pet foods. Mack has been on Orijen for over 6 months now and is doing extremely great!  Our foster, Miss Daisy, also got the Orijen.  For the month she was with us, she did great on it.  We sent her off to her new home with some Orijen for a good start.

If you have any questions about our review of Orijen, please just ask!

It's great of you to share your experience with Minnie and Mack and food problems. Allergies can be such a problem with pugs. Folks will learn from your story.

Great review!!! Orijen is an excellent food, IMO! I fed the Newfs this a few years ago and then switched to the Acana, which is also made by Champion Pet Foods. I have always been very pleased with their quality of food!

bichonpawz said...

We are currently trying the Canidae and loving it!! Orijen is next on our list! Mama tries to switch up our food so we don't get to used to one or the other...but thank you for letting us know about this food! Glad to hear that your grandmother is doing better and that Daisy is happy in her new home. xoxo Chloe and LadyBug
