Orijen Regional Red Dog Food – New Formula

Normally when we see formula changes in dog food it is for the worst. However, in this case it looks like it is for the better. We believe that Orijen’s new line, including the new formula for Regional Red is among the best dog food kibble mass produced today. We have never seen all the first 5 ingredients being a named meat. We have also never seen 11 meat ingredients before the first fat. We highly recommend this dog food.

Orijen Regional Red Ingredient Analysis

  1. Fresh deboned wild boarorijen regional red dog food
  2. Fresh deboned lamb
  3. Fresh beef liver
  4. Fresh deboned pork
  5. Lamb meal

These are all outstanding ingredients. We would like to point out that the whole meats will move down the list after processing. However, with 75% meat, it hardly matters.
