Pork Diets differ from the Pork Dinners because they do not contain fruit or vegetable matter. Pork Diet contains Meat, Bone & Organ consisting of only pork protein. These pure pork formulas are a good choice for dogs that have food sensitivities or allergies. Because they are a meat only formula this can also be a fed to cats.
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 Carnivora protein patties are composed of 66% muscle meat, 7% bone, 10% organs, 7% blood and 10% fat.
You may supplement as needed, we recommend Thrive Herring Oil. We also recommend rotating 3-5 proteins a month, as every protein brings various nutrients to the 'bowl'. If you are rotating less than 1-3, we recommend you supplement with Thrive Trimineral Boost or Thrive Fortify, as it will add the extra vitamins, amino acids, minerals, ets.
Commonly pork has been referred to as “the other white meat”! In fact, pork is actually considered a red meat. This is because all cloven-hoofed animals, like pigs, are classified as “red”. It is the most commonly consumed red meat worldwide, especially in eastern Asia.
Being high in protein and rich in many vitamins and minerals, lean pork can be an excellent addition to a healthy diet for your pet. Pork contains varying amounts of fat depending on the 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.
