Kangaroo Nutritional Profile
Kangaroo is one of the highest protein sources available and is both delicious and nutritious. Kangaroo is a highly recommended biologically appropriate meat source for both dogs and cats. Because of the extraordinary protein levels and bioavailability, it is suggested to use less kangaroo meat in the diet than other meat sources.
Biologically appropriate recommendations:
Kangaroo Inclusion Rate: 40-70% of formulation for dog and cat dry food.
Complimentary Carbohydrate Sources: 30-60% of formulation. These may include potato, peas, sweet potato, lentils and pumpkin.
Guaranteed Crude Protein: 34% (minimum). Protein content should be primarily from quality meat sourced through regional suppliers.
- Quality Australian Meat: Kangaroos aren’t farmed, they are open range animals. The result is a lean, red meat that’s free from antibiotics, added growth hormones and added chemicals.
- Protein: Dogs and cats are carnivores and need a diet rich in meat and protein. Kangaroo meat is one of the best sources of protein available, helping pets to duplicate their natural diets.
- Omega-3 and CLA: Balanced nutrition is essential for dogs. Kangaroo meat is rich in Omega Oils and Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA), which maintains healthy skin and coats and other important healthcare functions in dogs and cats.
- Vitamins and Minerals: Essential to maintain healthy function, boost metabolism and cleanse dogs and cats of free radicals and other toxins. Kangaroo meat is a good source of valuable B-group vitamins, including Vitamin B12, Vitamin B6, Niacin, Riboflavin, Thiamine, Iron and Zinc.
