I did plenty of research before choosing this food. I have tried all the top foods and I wasn't ahop and more importantly my dogs weren't either. I have 9 boxer puppies that I am feeding this food to. They absolutely love it have great coats and finish every drop. I personally prefer this even over average cooking due to organic meats. If you were to go out and buy each one of these proteins and then and the fruits and veggies organically you would pay a lot more. Very recommended.
By nature, all puppies are carnivores. They thrive on a varied diet, rich in meats with smaller amounts of fruits, vegetables and grasses. High protein, low carbohydrate Orijen Puppy formula replicates this same rich and diverse balance that young dogs would encounter in their natural setting Made with high quality, human grade free range chicken, turkey, whole eggs, and wild freshwater and saltwater fish delivered fresh (never frozen) each day.
Orijen Puppy kibble is loaded with high protein, human grade meats (minimum 75%), and none of the grains or carbohydrates that are inappropriate for your puppy. Instead of cereal grains, Orijen Puppy provides a full complement of fruits and vegetables, including sweet and russet potatoes, red delicious apples, cranberries, and organic sea vegetables from the North Pacific. Select from 5 lb, 15 lb, or 28.6 lb bags.
Orijen Puppy is formulated to meet nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Dog Food Nutrient Profiles for all life stages.
