Pork is a red meat high in protein and rich in many vitamins and minerals. Our lean pork is an excellent addition to a healthy diet for your pet. Our pork diet contains an average of 12.5% fat because of our level of trimming and various other factors. The fatty acid composition of pork is slightly different from the meat of ruminant animals, such as beef and lamb. It is low in conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) and is slightly richer in unsaturated fats.
Pork patties contain the whole animal except the heads, hides, bladder and large intestine (manure) and feet. 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 and kidneys.
On average over all our proteins, patties are composed of 66% muscle meat, 7% bone, 10% organs, 7% blood and 10% fat. We DO NOT add anything to our foods. You may supplement as needed. Please visit our healthcare and supplement pages.
