Orijen Senior Red Dog Food Review
As dog’s age they become less efficient at metabolizing proteins, and require fewer calories (particularly those from carbohydrates). Orijen Senior Dog Food has been formulated with this in mind. It contains high amounts of protein to help your dog maintain it’s lean body mass, and a lower percentage of carbohydrates and overall calories to ensure your dog maintains a healthy body weight.
As with all of Orijen’s foods, the Senior formula contains very high quality ingredients, with no grains or fillers.
