YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT, AS THE OLD ADAGE GOES. WELL THE SAME IS TRUE FOR DOGS — WHICH IS WHY EVERY DOG DESERVES TO EAT ORIJEN.
Protein rich and bursting with fresh local meats and fish, ORIJEN Senior is formulated to mirror the foods mother nature intended senior dogs of all breeds to eat.
Equally important is the big savory taste of ORIJEN that your senior dog won’t soon forget — after all, he deserves to enjoy his meals too.
ORIJEN Senior benefits dogs of every breed and size. Like people, your dog is a unique individual and his feeding requirements will vary with his breed, environment, age and activity.
That’s why we suggest monitoring his weight and adjusting his rations as needed. We also recommend feeding him twice daily and that you remember to always keep fresh, clean water available to your cherished dog.
There are three sources of calories available to your senior dog: protein, fat and carbohydrates. While protein and fat are essential for your dog; carbohydrates are not. In fact, dogs require absolutely no carbohydrate in their diet.
Simple carbohydrates from cereal grains such as rice or corn cause blood sugar levels to elevate and fluctuate and when not used for energy, carbohydrates are quickly and easily stored in the body as fat. Indeed, excess carbohydrates are the leading dietary cause of overweight conditions in senior dogs of all breeds.
By providing more calories from protein and fat, and fewer calories from carbohydrates, ORIJEN provides a calorie distribution that mirrors your senior dog’s natural diet — promoting a long and happy life by helping reduce the risk of obesity, insulin resistance and diabetes.
