Orijen Cat & Kitten Dry Cat Food is a grain-free biologically appropriate formula for all cats and kittens of all breeds, containing 90% premium fish, poultry and eggs with 20% fruits, vegetables and botanicals. Free-run chicken and turkey, whole eggs and wild-caught fish are farmed or fished within the Kentucky region by people known and trusted by Champion Petfoods, delivered fresh daily. The first 5 ingredients are FRESH MEAT, which are low in calcium and phosphorus, helping to make the formula balanced! Using this high amount of fresh meat gives the kibble a unique shape, smell and color. All cats and kittens are carnivores, possessing a biological need for a high-protein diet that's rich and varied in meats with smaller amounts of fruits,vegetables and grasses.

Orijen Cat & Kitten Dry Cat Food is bursting with the protein-packed, veterinary-inspected meats that form a Biologically Appropriate diet of 40% protein and limited to only 20% low-glycemic carbohydrates. This formula also features both regional freshwater and saltwater fish, loaded with natural, non-rendered omega-3 fatty acids. Quality is never outsourced!

Biologically appropriate omega-3 (DHA, EPA) is from fresh fish, not inappropriate sunflower, flax or canola oils (ALA) which are ineffective in the body of a cat. These fatty acids support peak conditioning and a vibrant skin and hair coat - your cat's outer symbol of health and vitality. The fresh poultry, meats and fish provide a rich natural source of taurine (0.2%), without adding synthetic ingredients to the formula.
