We strongly believe that supplying your pet with proper nutrition is one of the most important things you as the pet owner can do for his or her quality of life. Obesity is becoming an important concern in our pet population as it can lead to illnesses such as diabetes, joint disease, and heart disease. It also can pose a significant risk to your pet during anesthesia.
Though often similarly labeled, not all pet foods are alike. During your pet’s visits with us we will thoroughly address his or her nutritional status and counsel you on a diet individualized to your pet’s age, breed, and special health concerns. We carry a complete line of wellness and prescription diets that employ the latest in technology and research to help you optimize your pet’s health via nutrition.
COMMITMENT TO THE BEST NUTRITION OPTIONS FOR PETS
Providence Animal Hospital & Pet Resort carries only the best pet food, Orijen. http://orijen.ca
Different from conventional pet food makers, Orijen’s Biologically Appropriate focus means their foods are formulated to nourish dogs and cats in keeping with their evolutionary and anatomical adaptation to protein-rich diets that include a broad variety of fresh meats.
That means they don’t buy the bulk commodity ingredients found in conventional pet foods.
Instead, they start with fresh, never-frozen meats that are sustainably farmed, fished or ranched within our region by people they know and trust. Considered too expensive by conventional pet food makers, their fresh regional ingredients are unmatched in any other dog or cat food on earth.
From free-run poultry, to wild-caught fish to free-range red meats, their regional ingredients are approved 'fit for human consumption' by the Government of Canada and arrive at their door fresh each day — so they’re preservative free and bursting with goodness to nourish your dog or cat completely.
In today’s world of multinational and marketing companies (that sell but don’t make their own foods), Orijen is proud to stand apart as an independent and authentic pet food maker. And because your trust means everything to them, they never allow their foods to be produced or packaged in any facility other than their own.
THE BIOLOGICALLY APPROPRIATE CONCEPT IS SIMPLE: MIRROR THE BALANCE AND VARIETY OF FOODS THAT DOGS AND CATS WOULD CONSUME IN THEIR NATURAL ENVIRONMENT AND FOR WHICH THEY ARE EVOLVED.
Dogs and cats evolved as hunters — the structure of their teeth, jaws and digestive system scientifically classifies them as carnivores, adapted to a meat-based diet that’s rich in animal protein and fat.
Yet witness the current trend of ‘holistic’ pet foods that are largely grain-based, contain little meat or protein, exceed 40% carbohydrates, and feature fashionable ingredients — more often for their consumer appeal than for any nutritional benefit to dogs or cats.
BIOLOGICALLY APPROPRIATE ORIJEN IS UNIQUELY DIFFERENT FROM TODAY’S CONVENTIONAL DRY DOG AND CAT FOODS
Protein-rich, carbohydrate-limited and grain-free, ORIJEN features the highest fresh meat inclusions of any dry dog or cat food, at the same time excluding many conventional pet food ingredients — such as inappropriate high-glycemic cereal grains and vegetable proteins that simply are not present in the natural diet
