Why is hare good for my animal?
It is low in calories, cholesterol, saturated fats, sodium, and is high in protein, vitamin B12, calcium, zinc & phosphorus. These free-ranging animals are living off our rich NZ flora, which makes them an incredibly nutritious food for cats and dogs. Wild hare is a good source of omega-3 fatty acids – vital for controlling inflammation. They are packed full of vitamins and minerals.
Our rabbit & hare are very low in cholesterol to promote heart health, and the low-calorie content means they are well-suited to animals that have a tendency to gain weight.
How much do I feed?
- For puppies & kittens (under 1-year-old) feed 40g per 1Kg of body weight
- For adult dogs and cats (over 1-year-old) feed 20g per 1Kg of body weight
- Every pet is unique and has different nutritional requirements, adjust feeding levels according to activity levels and condition of your pet.
Keep frozen. Once thawed use within three days.
- Cats like their meat blends at room temperature (at blood temperature). If meat blends are cold, add some boiled water to warm the meat.
- They do not like ‘old’ meat so give it to them fresh.
- Cats get their liquid from their meat, not usually from the water bowl.
- Older cats need animal protein, not more carbohydrates, and fats. http://feline-nutrition.org/nutrition/the-skinny-on-senior-cats-metabolism-explained
