Orijen & ACANA Fish DIETS: KEY COMPONENTS AND BENEFITS


ORIJEN and ACANA are Biologically Appropriate diets which are based on the nutritional philosophy that dogs and cats need to be nourished according to their evolutionary adaption and thrive on diets containing fresh and diverse meat ingredients. That’s why our ACANA and ORIJEN diets are packed with high-quality animal protein, a nutritionally balanced fatty acid profile, and contain naturally sourced vitamins and minerals that will nourish your cat and dog completely – just as nature intended.

ORIJEN and ACANA fish recipes are a rich diversity of fresh, whole, and wild-caught fish from Vancouver Island's cold pacific waters and are specially crafted to support peak conditioning and be a delicious food your pets will love!

Whole fish make up a vital part of your pet's diet. They provide essential nutrients that support all aspects of your pet's health and wellbeing. They're the most bioavailable dietary source of omega 3 fatty acids, which are proven to be beneficial for your pets skin, coat, joints, eye and brain health.

WILD-CAUGHT OR RESPONSIBLY FARM-RAISED FISH

INGREDIENTS WE LOVE. PEOPLE WE TRUST.

ORIJEN and ACANA work diligently to build partnerships with fisheries around the world, to provide a high quality, nutrient-rich array of fish. This includes both wild-caught and responsibly farm-raised fish.

Their primary focus is to procure fish that will add essential proteins and healthy fats for balanced nutrition in every recipe they craft for your pets.

All our ORIJEN and ACANA recipes feature a variety of regional fish that are wild-caught by people we know and trust, deemed fit for human consumption, and then delivered to our award-winning kitchen fresh and whole.

OMEGA 3 & OMEGA 6 + essential fatty acids

ORIJEN® and ACANA® fish receipes have the highest omega 3 inclusions of any kibble and most importantly, the correct balance of omega 3 to 6 ratios. Many other diets are too high in omega 6!

While cats and dogs cannot synthesize the essential fatty acids, it is crucial to make sure their diet contains the balanced amount in order to prevent the deficiency/excess, which can lead to serious problems. The quality of these fatty acids in diets is paramount, as they are easily inactivated in the presence of oxygen. 

In general, EPA (eicosapentaenoic) and DHA (docosahexaenoic), which are found in cold water/ocean fish, phytoplankton and single cell algae, have the greatest health benefits in pets.
