GOAT HEART- 100% single ingredient, Aussie dog treats!
Why goat heart? Perhaps because it might just be the G.O.A.T.
While kangaroo, fish and crocodile have been known for a long time to be hypo allergenic, goat is of a similar importance, and being a little of a hidden secret, it means that its price is quite affordable.
The issue for goat, like lamb, is that much of the meat or jerky is cooked or dried for the human consumption market that there is rarely any of this great protein available for your dogs.
So that is why goat heart deserves a special place in your diet. Goat heart is also a NON-SECRETING organ, meaning that its nutritional makeup is more akin to just plain meat, than any of the other organs in its body.
Unlike bigger farmed animals, these hearts are small bite sized pieces for most dogs. A little more chewy than some meats, but that is the point for most dogs. Because of each hearts small size, it means that even small dogs can enjoy this treat, without them or you having to spend a long time ripping it apart before consumption.
We have created an article to look at the protein value of goats compared to most of the common meats given to dogs, and it turns out that goat has one of the highest values of essential amino acids available – exactly what your dog needs.
You will also notice that goat heart tends to be about half the fat content of chicken or beef jerky treats for dogs, so that also means it is relatively low in kilojoules.
