Wild Venison

Why Is Venison a Good Choice?

Why Is Venison a Good Choice?

Huntaway started with venison. It remains our signature product and a key component across our range of raw dog food, treats, chews, and functional products. We chose venison for good reason.

Novel Protein

Venison is a novel protein — by which we mean it isn't a common protein source used in commercial pet food — and this novelty gives it hypoallergenic characteristics and means it is less likely that dogs will have adverse reactions to it. Generally speaking, pet foods containing venison are a good choice for dogs that may have food intolerances or allergies.

We have found this to be the case with Huntaway raw venison dog food — our reviews speak for themselves! We are delighted to have helped so many dogs across the USA with their skin and coat, digestion, and hip and joint issues. Try it for yourself, and let us know how your allergy prone pup does!

Highly Nutritious

Venison is also a great source of B vitamins, and minerals such as zinc, phosphorus, and iron. B complex vitamins are essential to maintaining healthy blood cells and metabolism, and iron and phosphorus help maintain healthy blood and bones in dogs.

Other health benefits include essential amino acids, which are building blocks in your dog's body. They provide energy, boost the immune system, and support lean muscle. Venison also includes healthy fats, including omega-3 fatty acids that help support your dog's skin and coat.

A Leaner Alternative

Compared to other typical proteins, e.g. beef and lamb, venison is also a leaner alternative, specifically being lower in fat and cholesterol. Venison is a great choice when it comes to building lean muscle in active dogs, and it also provides high-quality protein in dogs who are prone to weight gain — it's an ideal solution if you need or want to give your dog a healthier option.

And of course…It’s Delicious!
