The Amazing Benefits of Raw Kangaroo Meat for Dogs

Dogs thrive on raw meat diets full of quality proteins.  All types of meat protein are beneficial but generally leaner meats with more nutrients, like kangaroo, are preferable and a small proportion of organ meat is a great nutritional boost. 

Of course when picking a meat to feed your pet, you must also consider factors like affordability, quality, the environment and ethics and of course your dog’s individual tastes and needs.

So what’s so good about raw Kangaroo meat for pets?

Kangaroo Meat for Dogs

In Australia, most people have heard about the amazing benefits of raw kangaroo meat for dogs. It is one of the lowest fat meats and rich in B vitamins, Omega 3s, iron and zinc! Kangaroo meat is high in protein and is always free range.  

As a result their meat is a much healthier red meat option compared to beef and other meats, and often a healthier choice for pets who suffer from illness, food allergies or intolerance.

What are the Benefits of Kangaroo Meat?

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, and is high in protein to keep your dogs full for longer, giving them all the necessary bio available nutrients for optimal health.

The main benefits again are –

  • Cost effective
  • Delicious

  • Rich in B Vitamins including Vitamin B12, Vitamin B6, niacin, riboflavin and thiamine and taurine
  • Rich in Omega 3s
  • Contains CLA – Kangaroo meat naturally contains Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) part of the omega-6 group
  • Low in fat -Kangaroo meat is impressively low in fat, with less than 2% fat. What’s more, it’s low in ‘undesirable’ saturated fats.

Free Range Clean Meat

For a lot of people, sustainability is such an important factor when it comes to choosing meat. 

The good news is Kangaroo meat for dogs is 100% free-range and never farmed. In fact, kangaroos exist over extensive pastoral areas of Australia and they are harvested in their own environment. Therefore kangaroo meat is never exposed to human intervention, antibiotics, added growth hormones or added chemicals. It’s the ultimate clean meat – the way we were meant to eat it, they are truly organic by nature. 

Kangaroo meat can also be considered more environmentally conscious than other meat production methods. To reduce the environmental damage caused by large sheep and cattle stations, the government approved kangaroo meat commercialisation to reduce reliance on that industry.  Due to the fact that kangaroos don’t produce as much prime cut meat volume  as cattle or sheep, up to 80% of every animal is then used for pet food.

Rich in Vitamins and Minerals

Zinc – The importance of Zinc is that it is essential for the correct functioning of cell membranes.  It supports a dog’s immune responses to disease, making it easier to recover from sickness or injury. Zinc assists dogs with the metabolization of proteins and carbohydrates, it boosts the health of their coats and paw pads and enhances energy levels.

Iron – Kangaroo meat is also a great source of iron for dogs. Iron’s primary function is to combine with copper and protein to create haemoglobin – the oxygen-carrying molecules found in red blood cells.  When a dog is deficient in iron , they can get anemia (lower than normal red blood cells) which can affect a dogs growth rate and often weaken their immune system.  Iron also helps dogs with constipation and iron is required to enable some of a dog’s body’s enzymes to function properly.

CLA: Kangaroo meat naturally contains Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) part of the omega-6 group– yet another bonus for our wellbeing. “Kangaroos can have as much as five times more CLA in their fat than ruminants. The level of CLA in kangaroos depends on their diet, as it also does in ruminant animals”, according to Research of Clare Engelke.
