Product Description


Canada's marine harvest is perfectly suited to the ORIJEN nutritional philosophy of high-protein, low-carbohydrate diets made with maximum inclusions of fresh regional ingredients. High-protein, low-carbohydrate and grain-free ORIJEN 6 FISH replicates the same rich balance of meats, fruits, vegetables and grasses that dogs would encounter in a wilderness setting, but with single-source protein from fish and single-source carbohydrate from potato.

Made with the highest possible

I have had my 22lb. Terrier mix on this since she was 1 yr old and she just turned 3 yrs old. She just had full blood work and liver/pancreatic enzyme readings as I have her on Atopica for allergies and they advise once yearly blood work. So far 3 tests total, one before Orijen, another after one yr on Orijen, and another after two yrs of being on Orijen. My vet said my dog has excellent blood/liver/pancreatic readings, in fact, he said better than most. In fact her readings where so good that he asked me what i was doing/feeding her and told me to keep doing what you have been cuz her blood work is so good and especialty as she is on Atopica and Comfortis. Orijen Fish is the only dry dog food I could find that didnt use chicken fat in it, which my dog is very allerigic to. My dog is also allergic to the follwing (confirmed by allergy testing, yes it was expensive)...chicken, turkey, beef, lamb, bison, pork, and most grains like rice, oats, wheat, corn, flax, etc...as well as fleas. I feel this food has saved my dogs life as I cant find another food she can tolerate and thrive on, yet she also loves the taste and is holding a perfect weight on only 1 cup a day so even though its pricey, only having to feed 1 cup a day makes it very ecomonical. I feel this is the best dog food I can buy for my dog.

Siberian Huskies are naturally picky eaters but this food really excited her. Anya attacked it like my Goldie/Shepherd mix did. My Goldie/Shepherd mix has problems with dry skin and a diet rich in fish oil was suggested. It worked for her but gave her 'fish breath', my daughter said. I recommend this food for any dog that gives you that "what the heck is this again?" look with ordinary foods. I recommend it for Huskies and for dogs with itchy skin. Its a real treat "Like stealing the cats food."

With the imminent demise of the Natura Pet brands (EVO, Innova, et. al.) after their purchase my P&G, we've moved to the somewhat higher priced Orijen line, with excellent results. Similar to Natura, Champion is concerned about ingredient quality and sources (avoid China), and produce their own food in their own plants (though Natura did not produce their own canned products). Palatability of the Orijen products we've tried (including their cat foods), and they smell like food, not gnarly "dog food" that makes you gag when you open the bag. The Acana brand from Champion is similar, but lower protein and nearly as expensive.

I prefer the fish formulation, as dogs (and even more critically cats) have difficulties in synthesizing the omega-3 oils they need when only provided vegetable sources (canola oil and flaxseed are common). (AAFCO requirements are bogus -- they are an industry group that has rejected NRC recommendations and instituted their own, simpler ones. The NRC "upset" the industry when it required feeding tests to see if the diets actually met dietary needs.)

Shifting to a high protein diet can seem scary, as you are likely to have loose stools for a week or so. Take it slowly (mix in with your old food) and you should be OK.

My only hesitation (past the $60 for 30# price) is that for tiny, senior dogs the kibble size may be too large. Our nearly toothless, 16-year-old toy poodle has difficulty with it. It is about 3/8" disks, not large, but not as small as EVO or Innova "small bites" size.

Check you dealer for Champion's "buy 12 get one free" or breeders' programs, depending on your status.

I had been feeding my dog the same food for years but never knew he was allergic to it. I later learn that the formula was changed because it was bought out by Proctor Gamble. Go figure. My dog was chewing himself to the bone.

I tried 5 different new foods--all of the highest ingredients. Nothing cheep for my dog. But he either was still allergic to it, wouldn't eat it, or had diarrhea.

Then I found Orijen 6 fish formula. It was like giving my dog crack! He LOVES it. And his allergies no longer bother him.

There's a video on the Orijen web site that I highly recommend. Between the experience I'm currently having with my dog and the food, plus learning to the extent that Orijen goes to make the freshest human-quality dog food blows my mind.

There is NO OTHER KIBBLE that is as good as this food. Hands down!!! It's worth every penny.

I have an 8 year old chihuahua named Rico. He struggled with digestive issues when he was a puppy. His vet diagnosed him with a protein allergy and said he would always have to be on a hypo-allergenic diet which is only available through vets with prescription. The food fixed Rico's digestion problems, so I thought nothing else of it. A few years later, he started having seizures. Awful, atypical seizures that would last for hours. We sought treatment from a neurologist who prescribed different medications. Some of which didn't work. Others made him loopy and unacceptably not himself. Thanks to a wonderful woman who read my post on a pet md message board, I did research on the food Rico was eating. Not good!! The food had an ingredient known to cause seizures, BHA, though none of the numerous vets we saw even mentioned food as being a culprit. I immediately researched hypo-allergenic, natural foods. Against medical advice, I took him off the medication and started him on Orijen 6 Fish that day! He has not had a seizure since then. Not one. I can't say enough good things about this food...and always doing your own research after consulting with professionals. My brother started feeding his dog this food, and I hope you'll consider doing the same.
