The best
My 15 years old fussy eater cat loves it (Posted on 11/02/2024)
No fussiness here
Orijen Original cat food is the only food that my cats don't turn up their noses at. (Posted on 17/12/2023)
No better cat food!
I feed my cats orijen. When my parents’ cat came to stay with us for a month, he was struggling with skin issues and his fur was falling out. He ate Orijen while he stayed with me and his coat absolutely transformed, dermatitis cleared up and he had much more energy.

He has gone back to my parents now and is continuing with Orijen food and his skin problems haven’t returned.

The food is expensive, but it’s worth it now that he isn’t going to the vet every month.

I absolutely LOVE Orijen! Yes, it seems expensive - but in all honesty, it's not. My cat eats a lot less since we switched over to Orijen compared to other cat food. I think the food is just more satiating. My cat Baby is now 15 years old and he is a very fussy eater but he LOVES Orijen. I have been using Orijen for 2 years and Baby is super happy.

The Rolls Royce of Cat Pellets
Orijin Cat & Kitten Food is by far and away the best option on the market when it comes to dry cat food. I have studied the contents of the food and it contains the highest amount of protein compared to all other dry cat foods. A high protein content is vital for the health of your cat as well as the fact that they do not add any grains or other fillers like some of the other well-known brands do. Ever since I've fed my cat this food, her coat has become thick and silky and she never gets ill so I cannot recommend it more highly. (Posted on 15/03/2020)
Always the best for my kitty!
I believe in excellent food for my cats, and my little one simply loves Orijin! (Posted on 27/01/2020)
My boy loves it!
After reading such good reviews on this product and suggestions from the vet to add a variety seeing his still small and we won't have lots of issues with him being fussy later on. Even though it was a smaller package I just wanted to see how he will take to it and he loved it.

My Diabetic old lady
My 16 year old cat was diagnosed with diabetes earlier this year. Her prognosis was not good, the vet suggested that we start her on this cat food. Within a month she had gone from 0.2ml insulin per day to 0.1ml every second day. Her condition has improved hugely and she's in better health than she has been in years! (Posted on 05/07/2018)
Great brand
I fed my little ones this once I had switched them from RC to Acana and while they ate this, they did seem to prefer the Acana pellets. You can't go wrong with Orjen or Acana, they are both great brands and have superb quality ingredients. (Posted on 01/05/2018)
Acana/Orijen Gave new life to my older cat
I have a Cat who is 10 years old now, and I was looking for a food that was appropriate to feed him and our new kitten. The older cat, was lethargic, over weight and barely active anymore, spending all day sleeping on the couch, and at times he did not look very well at all and had somewhat patchy fur. I thought this was a combination of his age and loneliness, hence getting the kitten.

After reading up about various foods, I realized that the food I was feeding him although sourced at the vet, was not nearly as good as Orijen/Acana, and I thought I may as well switch since it was good for cats and Kittens. I started them on a diet of acana.

In the space of a few short weeks it was like having a new cat in the house, he had begun to lose weight, he was moving around more, and his fur was growing back. After 2 Months I decided to transition to Orijen because of the Positive results of the Acana food, and after a year, it was like having a new cat! He has lost weight, and is now slim and trim, plays with the younger cat or he is out exploring in the garden, and has a lovely shiny and thick coat!

I did not expect to see such dramatic results, but my Cat has gone from looking like his days were numbered, to a Lively healthy cat who behaves like he is 1 year old! I am convinced at the diference that appropriate nutrition can make and I highly recommend both Acana and Orijen cat foods!
