Vets and industry experts are increasingly advocating for pet owners to incorporate more Novel Proteins in their pet diets. These alternative meats are a key nutritional component of a healthier diet and a necessary complement to help prevent food allergies!
These sources of highly nutritional, low fat protein come from animals raised in smaller farms, free to roam in their natural habitats, and fed balanced diets without the addition of hormones or artificial preservatives - the result is higher quality meat.

The energetic, wide-eyed ostrich is native to the grasslands of South Africa. Though they are the world’s largest flightless birds, their long legs enable them to run at speeds of over 65 km (40 miles) per hour. Bred and fed a pure and balanced diet in their natural environment, breathing clean air and free to roam through vast areas of territory, the meat of these agile birds is a novel protein, uniquely lean, healthy and very tasty which poses a low risk of food allergies to pets.
There are many species of antelope in South Africa, such as Eland, Impala, Antelope Waterbuck and others. Their rich and gamey novel protein meat, known as venison, is naturally lean, low in fat and an important source of protein and iron. Our dog treats retain all its musky and slightly sharp flavor which results in a palatable, mouth-watering taste pets are sure to love.
These large reptiles produce a remarkably healthy meat. It’s mild flavored and firm in texture; it has significantly fewer calories, less fat content and less cholesterol than more traditional meats. It provides higher levels of protein, making it a more heart-friendly white meat alternative. An additional benefit in pet treats is that the food allergy/intolerance risk to dogs associated with alligator meat is very low relative to poultry and beef.
