Kangaroo is of course, the only truly ‘wild’ meat available on a large scale in Australia. As a ‘wild meat, it is truly free range, being in no way farmed.
Perhaps its most valuable feature (and drawback in some circumstances) is its very low calorific value; Dr. B’s Kangaroo Recipe BARF very low in fat. This makes it a good choice for a dog that has a problem such as pancreatitis or obesity, or any other problem, which requires a low fat diet.
On the other hand, being low in fat makes Dr. B’s Kangaroo Recipe BARF unsuitable as the sole diet for a puppy, a pregnant or lactating bitch or a highly active working dog. There is no problem of course, using it in these animals as part of a rotating diet with other Dr. B’s ‘flavours’.
