Orijen Senior Dog is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Dog Food Nutrient Profiles for All Life Stages.

By nature, dogs of all breeds and sizes are evolved as carnivores — biologically adapted for a diet rich and varied in fresh meats, with smaller amounts of fruits, vegetables and grasses.

Yet as dogs age, they also become less efficient at metabolizing the very proteins vital to their well being — so appropriately high levels of dietary protein is essential for enabling your senior dog's peak conditioning.

That's why we load Orijen Senior with the protein-packed animal ingredients (75%) that Mother Nature evolved all dogs to eat, with high ratios of free-range chicken and turkey, whole eggs and wild-caught fish — farmed or fished within our region and delivered fresh each day so they're preservative-free and brimming with proteins and fats to nourish your older dog completely.

Carbohydrate-limited and grain-free to replicate your senior dog's natural diet, Orijen Senior supplies healthful regional fruits, vegetables and botanicals — including sea vegetables, juniper berries and marigold flowers — naturally rich in phytonutrients, B-vitamins and essential trace minerals.

Made with great care and pride in our award-winning factory here in Alberta, Canada, Orijen Senior keeps your elder dog healthy, happy and strong.

Read our ingredients and we think you’ll agree.

Available in both 15.4lb and 29.7lb bags.

    Comments about Orijen Grain-Free Senior Dry Dog Food:

    I use this food in conjunction with Addition brand dehydrated raw foods and Addiction kibble, along with CAS Options and BSST, senior enzymes and a joint table. My dog will be 15 years old this month, and had cancer 2 1/2 years ago. She had surgery, but I opted not to have chemo or radiation; however, she is still doing great! I really believe that the CAS Optons and BSST helped her fight any cancer cells remaining, plus the high quality food certainly helps, too.

      Comments about Orijen Grain-Free Senior Dry Dog Food:

      This is the only dry dog food my dog will eat.
      She is a Chihuahua and about 1 lb. overweight. I contacted Champion Foods and they were very helpful and suggested the Senior formula to help her lose the extra weight.
      She is is doing very well on it.
      This formula is for Senior dogs as well as weight management.

        Our JRT was getting somewhat listless and really did like the different foods we tried to give her. She has been doing so well and has more energy plus woofs it down. We give with the dehydrated food in the am. We add the dehydrated sometimes at night. She has really done well - she is 10 years old.

            I am looking forward to using this highly rated product. I have had no luck getting excess weight off my Jack Russell. Either products have so much grain that they poop all the time, or they don't have quality ingredients to support their immune system. I think we hit the jack russell jackpot with this dog food. Thanks

                Comments about Orijen Grain-Free Senior Dry Dog Food:

                I checked with my holistic vet on the info regarding this product. I wanted to know if he concurred with the statements regarding senior dogs and continuing to give high quality protein, rather than restricting it. I was always under the impression that a high protein diet is hard on the liver and kidneys and as dogs age, this becomes more of a concern. Apparently this is true, but if your dogs have no kidney or liver problems, then the statement regarding maintaining high quality protein and less carbohydrates are true. My vet gave me the green light on this product, and my dogs love it. It also looks more appealing. I have tried the Core Wellness Grain Free, low fat, but it's not a glossy kibble like the Orijen, it's dry and whilst I understand that it's reduced fat so they tend to be dry, I think this Orijen product addresses the weight issues, without loss of taste.
