Benefits of Ostrich Meat for Dogs

Benefits of Ostrich Meat for Dogs

Is raw Ostrich a better option for your dog?

Ostrich is a delicious healthy red meat alternative with all the texture and hearty flavour of beef.

Now, coming to the health benefits of ostrich meat, it’s extremely high in protein, and low in fat, calories, and cholesterol.

It’s also high in iron, and easy to digest. And no wonder ostrich meat is increasingly being recommended by medical practitioners and dieticians for humans as well as pets.

That said, here are 6 benefits of ostrich for dogs. And why you should incorporate our ethically sourced Free-Range Ostrich & Organic Vegetables recipe into your dog’s regular feeding regime.

1. Rare Protein

Ostrich is a very rare protein source (‘more of a novel protein’). That’s why there are hardly any allergies known against Ostrich.

And that makes it ideal for pets with food allergies and food intolerances.

Additionally, ostrich is particularly suitable for an elimination diet. Therefore, it’s an ideal animal protein for dogs with food intolerances, sensitivities, or allergies.

2. It's Sustainable

Our Free-range Ostrich sourced from South Africa is the most sustainable red meat protein in the world: kg for kg (pound for pound).

Ostrich production requires dramatically less water, land, and resource-intensive feed.

Ostriches emit only a fraction of the greenhouse gases of traditional livestock.

3. Supporting Rural Communities in South Africa

Farming ostrich in rural areas of South Africa has provided a livelihood for local farmers and their families for generations.

And with the novel protein we get, farmers in these remote areas have developed a business opportunity where options are limited.

4. Low in Fat

Another healthy benefit of ostrich meat is that it’s naturally a source of meat with low fat, cholesterol, and calorie contents.

It’s even lower in fat grams than skinless white meat chicken or turkey!

And our Ostrich & Organic Vegetables recipe is optimal for dogs that require a variety with moderate fat content, such as dogs that are overweight or suffering from Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency (EPI), etc.

5. Highly Digestible

All the meats and poultry used in our recipes are highly digestible.

The result? Less “waste”.

Meaning… smaller, harder, firm and less frequent poops.

6. Very Tasty!

Last but not least, Ostrich meat is exceptionally tasty to both humans and our pets. And that makes it attractive for picky eaters or dogs that are looking for a special treat.

And don’t forget Ostrich’s ‘Raw-mazing’ Bones!

When talking about the benefits of ostrich for dogs, their bones are just one of the many premium by-products of this amazing animal.

Our Mammoth Ostrich Bones are an excellent mental stimulant for your dog, providing nutritional benefits with calcium, fatty acids, minerals, and cartilage.

They provide many oral health benefits. In fact, they’re nature’s toothbrush!

And with their large size and plethora of angles and shapes, your dogs are about to be entertained for hours while maintaining their pearly white teeth.
