Orijen cat food: premium brand of pet food

Orijen cat food: a description

Orijen cat food

After Orijen and Acana have had to face a lawsuit complaining about some of their products allegedly containing “levels” of arsenic, mercury, lead, cadmium, and BPA, we want to make a description of Orijen cat food specifically.  To this day, we have not really received any feedback on Orijen cat food causing any harm on pets.  The lawsuit was targeted, though, to three types of Origen dog food.
