Kangaroo is one of the leanest meats available, containing only 2% fat and with much of that being healthier, unsaturated fat.
Kangaroo is naturally organic and free-range meat, as it isn’t farmed. - This is a huge benefit for dogs and pets presenting with skin and food allergies.
The Laila and Me dehydrated Kangaroo jerky treats can be easily broken up into small amounts, making it an excellent training treat, or treat for your loved dog when they are just being good doggo without the guilt or the calories!
Kangaroo is a good source of high quality protein and contains all of the ten essential amino acids that dogs require for health. Kangaroo is an excellent source of iron, which is important for transporting oxygen around the body and immune system health, as well as zinc, which is essential for growth, wound healing and immune health. Kangaroo meat has very high levels of B vitamins, particularly B12, which are important for releasing energy from food and producing red blood cells.
Interestingly, kangaroo meat also contains Omega 3 fatty acids, which are not commonly found in high levels in conventionally farmed ruminant animals. Traditionally we think of these nutrients as being found in oily fish, but kangaroo is another good option for adding more of these important fatty acids to your dog’s diet. Omega 3 has powerful anti-inflammatory potential and is essential for health, while also commonly being deficient in the modern canine diet.
