Why is hare good for my animal?
These free-ranging animals are living off our rich NZ flora, which makes them an incredibly nutritious food for cats and dogs. Wild rabbit and hare are a good source of omega-3 fatty acids – vital for controlling inflammation. They are packed full of vitamins and minerals.
The meat contains
- niacin – regulates energy metabolism
- selenium – an important antioxidant
- phosphorus – energy metabolism, movement (locomotion), cell membrane structure
The inclusion of rabbit & hare adds novel protein to the diet, great for dogs and cats with allergies.
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.
These blocks contain minced bone, which supplies digestible calcium, glucosamine and chondroitin for bone and joint health.
A bit about wild hares and rabbits and our countryside
Our hare, rabbit and wallaby is wild – shot on large stations by MAF-accredited hunters in the South Island.
They really are the ultimate food for our pets!
Rabbit and hare were introduced to New Zealand in the 1830s for food and sport. They bred prolifically (particularly rabbits) and have become an ecological disaster. Areas of vegetation grazed by rabbits have never recovered. A female can produce up to 45 offspring each year. They have had a major effect on sheep farming. Production losses and control measures probably cost the country over $100 million each year.
The primary control measure is poison. The main secondary measure of control is regular shooting. The better the secondary control, the less need there is for poison.
Only accredited hunters are used who work within a strict programme to ensure no overlap (temporally or geographically) with poison drops.
