NOURISH AS NATURE INTENDED
OUR BIOLOGICALLY APPROPRIATE PHILOSOPHY IS SIMPLE: MIRROR THE QUANTITY, FRESHNESS, AND VARIETY OF MEAT THAT DOGS AND CATS HAVE EVOLVED TO EAT.
The gray wolf (Canis lupus) is the ancestor and closest relative of all domestic dogs (Canis lupus familiarius), sharing 97% of their DNA, while the Near Eastern wildcat (Felis silvestris lybica) is the closest relative of domestic cats (Felis silvestris catus).
Despite years of breeding, the internal workings and anatomical capabilities of domestic dogs and cats remain the same as their wild cousins, so it’s no surprise their food requirements remain the same too.
THE EATING ANATOMY OF CARNIVORES
JUST LIKE THEIR ANCESTORS, MODERN DOGS AND CATS HAVE ANATOMICAL FEATURES DESIGNED FOR A MEAT-BASED DIET, A FUNDAMENTAL FACT OFTEN OVERLOOKED BY PET FOOD MAKERS. THESE INCLUDE:
- TEETH AND JAWS
- SALIVA AND ENZYMES
- SHORT DIGESTIVE TRACT
All modern-day dogs require a diet that is rich and varied in whole game, fish, and fowl. ORIJEN Tundra provides your dog with the nourishing protein and nutrients they need, from fresh Boer goat, wild boar, ranch-raised venison, Arctic char, free-run duck, and grass-fed mutton. Our animal ingredients are included 2/3 FRESH or RAW, for a concentrated protein source.
