Horse meat is considered one of the healthiest sources of protein for dogs. Many vets and experts now recommend horsemeat as a dog snack. The meat is lean, easily digestible, hypoallergenic and rich in important minerals. It is generally free from antibiotic residues, as horses are not bred in factory farms.
As horsemeat is very lean, it is also ideal for older and overweight dogs.
Horse meat for dogs is associated by most dog owners with a health problem: food allergies! Horse meat is considered hypoallergenic and often ends up in the bowls of allergic dogs. Dog snacks made from horse are very well tolerated as the sole source of protein. It can be used as part of an exclusion diet or fed permanently if allergies have already been identified.
