AN ABUNDANT VARIETY OF MEATS (7)
In nature, cats benefit from an assortment of meats. 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 Fit & Trim features a rich diversity of fresh meats in Biologically Appropriate™ WholePrey™ ratios to nourish for peak health:
Fresh free-run Cobb chicken from Prairie farmsFresh free-run turkey from Prairie farmsFresh and whole nest-laid eggs from Prairie farmsFresh, whole Pacific Herring, Mackerel, Flounder and Hake, wild-caught from North Vancouver Island
WHOLEPREY™ MEAT RATIOS
WholePrey™ represents the evolution of ORIJEN foods, incorporating fresh meats, organ meats and cartilage in ratios that mirror nature and eliminate the need for long lists of synthetic supplements.
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 cat 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 cat’s body can easily absorb.
Cats are obligate carnivores and have no biological requirement for carbohydrates yet conventional cat foods still contain large amounts of high-glycemic carbohydrates such as potato and tapioca, which are often cited as a leading cause of obesity and diabetes.
Biologically Appropriate™ ORIJEN Fit & Trim is a protein-rich and carbohydrate-limited food featuring lentils, chickpeas, squash, greens and fruits which release sugar slowly, dramatically reducing the potential for fat storage.
WE BELIEVE THAT PET LOVERS WANT TO KNOW WHERE THEIR CAT’S FOOD COMES FROM. SO WE FOCUS ON LOCAL INGREDIENTS RAISED BY PEOPLE WE TRUST, AND DELIVERED TO OUR KITCHENS FRESH EACH DAY.
That’s why our local ingredients are sustainably raised or fished within our region, approved “fit for human consumption,” and then delivered to our kitchens authentically fresh each day. NO OTHER CAT FOOD CAN MATCH ORIJEN’S FRESH INGREDIENTS.
