Lamb patties contain the whole animal except the heads, hides, bladder and large intestine (manure), hooves, horns (if any). We do not use non-edible bones as these would not be consumed in nature due to their density. Organs make up approximately 8 to 10 % of the patties – this includes lungs, liver, heart, kidneys, and the tongue. On average over all our proteins, patties are composed of 66% muscle meat, 7% bone, 10% organs, 7% blood, and 10% fat. You may supplement as needed. Please ask for a brochure or visit our website for healthcare and supplement products.
The Carnivora Whole Animal Lamb diet has moderate to high in fat levels. It is an economical protein source for rotation in the dog’s diet. Lamb is rich in easily absorbed minerals and B vitamins–particularly B6 and B12. Lamb is nature’s best source of carnitine, an amino acid that the body uses to transfer fatty acids across the membranes of the mitochondria, where they can be used as a source of fuel to generate energy. It is an especially important nutrient for the heart. Lamb fat is stable and nutritious. It is a good source of palmitoleic acid, a 16-carbon monounsaturated fatty acid that has strong antimicrobial properties.
