Venison or deer meat, is a lean protein source that is high in nutrients and low in fat. It also tastes different to other types of meat, so dogs usually to love the novelty. It is a great choice for dogs with skin, yeast or gut issues. It is highly digestible and really easy on even a sensitive dogs stomach.
Most venison is wild, meaning the animal has lived under the most natural conditions and has led a vastly less stressful life than those kept in confined spaces. This can really positively impact the quality of the final product, as the meat retains most of the nutrients. These are passed directly to our dogs to the benefit their health.
We use the term novel a lot when talking about meat types you can feed your dog. Novel proteins are vital for dogs that don’t tolerate commercially farmed meat such as chicken. It’s thought to be the grain the poultry is fed that makes dogs itch! The more novel the protein source, the higher the likelihood of the meat being wild. Well you don’t see kangaroo kept in cages do you! If your dog tolerates venison well, see also rabbit treats for sensitive dogs.
