Origen Senior meets the specific nutritional needs of a senior dog in order to help them stay healthy and support lean muscle mass by weight maintenance. As a result, a diet rich in protein from whole animal ingredients provides our dogs with the nutrients they need for peak health. Two-thirds of our animal ingredients are FRESH or RAW, for a concentrated source of protein. With meat, organs, cartilage, and bone from fresh free-run chicken and turkey, wild-caught fish, and cage-free eggs, ORIJEN Senior nourishes your beloved companion completely while offering them a flavor that they’ll love.
ONLY 1 SUPPLEMENT— ZINC
In nature there are no synthetic supplements, so dogs and wolves derive their complete nutritional needs naturally by consuming whole animals which contain all of the nutrients they need to thrive. That’s why you won’t find long lists of synthetics in ORIJEN dog foods. Loaded with richly nourishing ratios of fresh meat, organs, and cartilage or bone, plus fresh cage-free eggs, ORIJEN provides a natural source of virtually every nutrient your dog needs to thrive.
Metabolizable energy is 3630 kcal/kg (414 kcal per 8oz. cup) with 42% from protein, 21% from vegetables and fruit, and 37% from fat.
ORIJEN Senior recipe is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Dog Food Nutrient Proﬁles for Adult Maintenance.

DAILY FEEDING QUANTITY
A senior dog is unique and feeding requirements will vary with environment, age, and activity. That’s why we suggest starting with the featured guidelines, and then monitoring weight and adjusting portions as needed. Feed twice daily and remember to always keep fresh, clean water available. Use a standard 8-ounce measuring cup. Serve dry or lightly moistened. See your veterinarian regularly. To help maintain freshness, we recommend sealing the bag tightly and storing it in a cool, dry location.
