6 FISH DOG| BIOLOGICALLY APPROPRIATE FOR ALL LIFE STAGES
FRESH PACIFIC PILCHARD, MACKEREL, HAKE, FLOUNDER, ROCKFISH AND SOLE
AN UNMATCHED DIVERSITY OF FRESH, WHOLE AND WILD-CAUGHT FISH FROM VANCOUVER ISLAND’S COLD PACIFIC WATERS.
With 38% richly nourishing protein, and a limited 20% low-glycemic carbohydrates, ORIJEN nourishes large breed puppies according to their evolutionary and biological needs.
Unmatched by any other puppy food, 2/3 of ORIJEN meats are FRESH (refrigerated, no preservatives) or RAW (flash-frozen, no preservatives), including the top 10 ingredients.
1/3 of meats are air dried at 90°C from fresh chicken, turkey and fish to create a concentrated source of richly nourishing protein to support your growing puppy.
Nutrient-dense WholePrey™ ratios of fresh meats, organs, and cartilage plus fresh whole fish and fresh whole eggs provide a natural source of virtually every nutrient your big puppy needs.
Infusions of freeze-dried chicken and turkey liver enhance flavour naturally, making ORIJEN deliciously tasty for the fussiest of puppies.

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 5 Biologically Appropriate™ principles are simple and mirror the freshness and variety of meats that dogs are evolved to eat.
RICH IN FISH (85%) AND PROTEIN (38%)
UNMATCHED FRESH FISH INCLUSIONS (2/3)
AN ABUNDANT VARIETY OF FISH (6)
WHOLEPREY™ MEAT RATIOS
ONLY 2 SUPPLEMENTS — ZINC & COPPER
In nature there are no synthetic supplements, so dogs and wolves derive their complete nutritional needs naturally, by consuming whole prey animals and fish.
Made with fresh whole fish, ORIJEN SIX FISH provides a richly nourishing and concentrated source of virtually every nutrient your dog needs to thrive, naturally, without long lists of synthetic supplements, so only zinc and copper are added.
INGREDENTS | 6 FISH DOG
OUR INGREDIENT PHILOSOPHY | FRESH AND REGIONAL
We believe dog lovers want to know where the ingredients in their dog's food come from. For this reason we don't buy the inexpensive, bulk commodity ingredients found in conventional dog foods.
Instead, we use ingredients that are sustainably raised within our region by people we know and trust, approved ' fit for human consumption,' and then delivered to our door FRESH.
And as dogs of all breeds and sizes are carnivores — evolved to thrive on a varied diet rich in meats, with smaller amounts of fruits, vegetables and grasses — ORIJEN 6 Fish features a Biologically Appropriate (80.20.0) ingredient ratio of 80% fish, 20% fruit and vegetables, and 0% grain — all slow-cooked at low temperatures to retain their natural goodness.
