Grass Fed & Good Fats For Dogs

Posted on 1 Comment

Grass fed, grass finished meat products are a completely different ball game when it comes to healthy fats. Grass-fed fats been found to be higher in:

  • Fat soluble vitamins
  • Omega-3 fatty acids
  • Beta carotene (a potent antioxidant)
  • CLA (more on that below)

The fat from grass-fed animals takes on a yellowish tinge (that’s the beta carotene) rather than the stark white fats of a grain finished animal.

You’ll notice that with our new Pastured Beef Range – there is a much higher proportion of fat on the treats, and it might be a bit yellower than you’re used to. However, I can assure you that’s a good thing πŸ‘

The down low with CLA (conjugated linoleic acid)

CLA is a beneficial fatty acid with anti-inflammatory properties, it is found in meats & milk of ruminant animals. CLA is linked to fighting cancer, preventing bone loss, and building muscle. The anti-inflammatory properties help provide protection from chronic inflammatory disease.

Importantly, grass-fed fats contains 300–500% higher more conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) than fats from grain-fed cattle.

Synthetic CLA is often added to commercial pet foods, but the absolute best source for bio-available CLA is from grass fed and grass finished beef cattle.
