Surrounded by Atlantic, Pacific and Arctic oceans and home to vast clean, cold freshwater lakes, Canada’s marine harvest is perfectly suited to the Orijen philosophy of Biologically appropriate pet foods from fresh regional ingredients.

Bursting with wild-caught fish (minimum 75%) to optimally nourish cats and kittens of all breeds, Orijen 6 Fish features six regional species including Chinook, Coho and Sockeye salmon, Northern Lake Whitefish, lake trout, Northern walleye, freshwater cod and pacific herring - delivered to Orijen's fresh (never frozen, no preservatives and passed fit for human consumption).

Infused with fresh (not rendered) marine-source Omega-3 essential fatty acids, Orijen 6 Fish is especially rich in EPA and DHA to support peak conditioning and a vibrant skin and hair coat - your cat’s outer symbol of health and vitality.

Grain-free and low-carbohydrate, Orijen contains a full compliment of regional fruits and vegetables including sweet and russet potatoes, sun-cured alfalfa, black currants and sunflower from local farms, and apples and cranberries from the interior orchards.

Sea vegetables, hand-harvested from Canada’s North Pacific tidal range - including kelp, Irish moss, dulse and bladder wrack - are a rich, natural source of essential B vitamins, trace elements and important phytonutrients.

Mirroring the instinct to forage for medicinal grasses and weeds, Orijen's botanicals include chicory and licorice root, sweet fennel, calendula flowers and peppermint leaf - all of which replicate the natural diet, helping nourish the digestive tract and strengthen the liver.

Available in 5.5 lb. and 15.4 lb. bags.

    Comments about Orijen Grain-Free 6 Fresh Fish Dry Cat Food:

    I purchased this specific brand of food for my two cats in between their canned food feedings, after making the decision to go "natural" with them. Not only was I slapped in the face by the scent of the food, it seems my cats were as well. They looked at me like, "You're kidding, right?" when I poured it into their bowls the first time. Very, very, very fishy scent. I have three bowls I place food in for them, and the scent of this food will linger in my kitchen for hours. My cats have never been picky with dry kibble, but this they only ate when I managed to be a little late with their twice-daily canned feedings. Multiple (5+) times over the course of a week, undigested bits were vomited up right near the feeding station. I ended up, for the first time (I don't often change their diet), buying a different "healthy" cat food with over half the bag of this stuff still left, to which they took to happily.

        Comments about Orijen Grain-Free 6 Fresh Fish Dry Cat Food:

        I recently chose to upgrade the quality of food I feed my 8 1/2 year old cat. She's got a little excess weight & appears to be developing sensitivities, so I thought I would spring for Origen, based on the rave reviews. I have only fed her one meal, but I am already a fan!

        Let it be known that my cat is not a finicky eater, but I have NEVER seen her eat dry food with the kind of zeal I witnessed this morning while feeding her Origen for the first time. This is especially impressive, given the fact that I fed her soft food the night before & she usually looks sad when I follow up with dry food. That did not happen this time!

        Origen has a strong, fishy smell, which I think she quite savored. Some reviewers have a hard time dealing with this, but if my kitty's happy, I'm happy.

        Definitely worth the money. Buy with confidence!

          Comments about Orijen Grain-Free 6 Fresh Fish Dry Cat Food:

          This amazing food literally saved my cat's life. Making an executive decision to put her on this food, and stop her prescription diet (that made her vomit every time she tried to eat) was the best thing I've ever done. The six huge stones in her bladder completely disappeared in 30 days; her vet was utterly flummoxed for an explanation. Xoey has remained stone free for the last year and a half, has a gorgeous and luxurious coat, has more energy, and has begun to slowly shed her excess weight. This food is worth every penny.

          If you've never heard of this food, take a few minutes and visit their website (easily found with a web search since I can't post links). Once you understand how amazing this food is, come back here to order it -it can be tough to find locally as they will NOT allow their foods to be sold in the big chain stores. It's made by Canadian company, Champion. This is a food without equal in quality, design, or peace of mind (every single one of their ingredients is fit for human consumption, raised without hormones, antibiotics, or pesticides; best of all, all of their ingredients are sourced regionally, are delivered fresh every day, and are never frozen.). Add to this the fact that this food has won Food Of the Year for 3 years in a row; a nod to it's grain free goodness, and low glycemic index.

          I'll never feed my cat anything but Orijen.

            Comments about Orijen Grain-Free 6 Fresh Fish Dry Cat Food:

            My 4 year-old DSH tuxedo kitty Siegfried loves 6 Fish Orijen, and will *only* eat 6 Fish Orijen; he does not beg for food or crave cat treats/snacks or human food, (he won't even try them, let alone eat anything else but his Orijen) a first for this cat owner.

            Orijen is very concentrated, and you don't have to feed your kitty much; Siegfried weighs 11 pounds and he eats 2/3 cup per day, and never begs for more: the nutritionally dense Orijen completely satisfies him. This makes the seemingly expensive Orijen something of a bargain! He's very lithe and lean; there's not an extra ounce of fat on him. He also has a really shiny coat--people comment on how much it gleams--looks like black patent leather.

            Siegfried has been eating Orijen since he was a 3 month-old kitten fresh from the SPCA. He's grown into an exceedingly active, smart, and gorgeous healthy adult cat who really loves his food, so much so that he won't eat anything else. This is the first time I've used Orijen, and Siegfried is easily the healthiest, most active and smartest cat I've ever lived with. Highly recommended!!

            I have a super-picky cat who is prone to acne. I brought home a sample-size bag of Orijen 6 Fish today and he gobbled it down faster than I've ever seen him eat anything!

            I've been trying to switch him to a whole-foods diet, but he is so resistant to eating fresh meats--whether cooked or raw--that I think these kibbles will be the perfect solution! Considering the cost of supplements that are usually necessary with a feline whole-foods diet, the price of Orijen actually isn't bad. Exceptional protein content, more taurine than almost any other commercial catfood. I'm impressed. Too early to tell whether it will keep his acne at bay.

              I use to think that Kosmo had irritable bowel syndrome, anxious, bloated and gassy when his schedule would change unlike his brother Kramer. Also Kosmo was not always friendly. This was despite feeding them high quality food without preservatives and the first 3 ingredients were protein. Well the 3rd was corn. I switched to Orijen, after finding out they needed almost all protein and lo and behold I have a very happy Kosmo. No more bloating, no more smelling up the house, he is happy, playful and has lost the 5 lbs he needed to loose. They don't shed as much. Totally worth the price to have my healthy happy boys.

                      Because my older cat is off-the-chart allergic, I rotate his foods in a 4-day line. (He can eat all he wants on Monday, but he can't have it again until Friday.) He loves it, and it doesn't make him throw up. Perfect.

                        My 13 year old cat, Charlie likes this food! He's extremely fickle and formerly only wanted "junk" food. He needs to keep his weight up and it's been a challenge finding a good quality cat food that he'd actually eat.
