Why Kangaroo Is One of The Best Proteins For Pets
Roo is fast becoming the most preferred lean meat in Australia’s healthy, and environmentally conscious, kitchens… and dog bowls.
You’ve probably already heard about the amazing benefits of kangaroo meat. It is one of the leanest meats available, with only 2% fat and virtually 0% saturated fat which makes it a much healthier red meat option compared to beef and other meats.
High Protein Diet
Dogs have evolved on high-meat diets for centuries, their digestive systems have adapted to get the most from a carnivorous high protein diet. One of the main reasons that dogs need a high-protein diet is that proteins are made up of amino acids, which are essential for generating energy, building and repairing cells and muscles, and generating hormones and enzymes.
Meat, particularly red meat, helps create a more acidic stomach. Dogs’ digestive systems generally rely on an acidic environment to help kill pathogens, digest their food including tougher materials like bone, and keep the development of diseases like bladder stones and urinary tract infections in check.
Roo meat is higher in protein than beef, but is lower in fat, and contains Omega 3 fatty acids which is not present in beef. Not to mention roo meat is rich in essential vitamins and minerals like B vitamins, Omega 3s, zinc and iron, high in protein to keep your dogs full for longer and giving them all the necessary bio available nutrients for optimal health.
The Ultimate Clean Meat for Dogs with Intolerances and Allergies
Sustainability is such an important factor when it comes to choosing meat, which makes kangaroo meat all the better. Kangaroo is 100% free-range and never farmed. Kangaroo meat is always hunted from their natural environment without any antibiotics, growth hormones or chemicals in the picture. This means that Kangaroo meat is often a healthy choice for pets who suffer from food intolerances or allergies.
