Whole chicken patties contain the entire bird except the head, feet, feathers, and intestines. All the bones are grindable so bone content in poultry is higher than patties made from larger animals (only a small percentage of bones in larger animals like goat, lamb, bison and beef are grindable). Organs make up approximately 8% of the patty - this includes lungs, liver, heart and kidneys. On average over all our protiens, patties are composed of 66% muscle meat, 7% bone, 10% organs, 7% blood and 10% fat. Other than the vegetables and fruit in our dinners we DO NOT add anything to our foods. You may supplement as needed. Please visit our website for healthcare and supplement products.
Chicken is one of the most popular raw diets, often based on price. Compared to other whole animal diets, it is not as nutritious. Chicken (Goose and Duck) store most of their fat in a layer under the skin and in the body cavity. Chicken tends to be higher in fat than many other whole animal species because the skin of the carcass is usually included. The fat contains higher amounts of omega 6 fatty acids. Chicken diets that are higher in fat are unsuitable for dogs that are not active or for those with inflammatory diseases or problem skin disorders. Compared to many other protein sources, chicken is low in zinc and iron.
