Poultry bones play a particularly important role in promoting the health of our companion animals; being derived from young healthy birds, they are relatively soft, they contain a high proportion of bone marrow (for blood forming nutrients and essential fatty acids), they are a balanced and biologically appropriate source of the bone forming minerals calcium and phosphorous and are an excellent source of cartilage (which has fantastic anti-inflammatory properties).
Dr. B’s Turkey Recipe BARF has enormous health enhancing properties. Firstly, the high level of essential amino acids (the building blocks of proteins) in turkey & chicken meat build strong muscles and healthy cells. Secondly, the high levels of the health enhancing and bodily repairing sulphur containing amino acids in turkey & chicken meat. Thirdly, the very high level of healthy fatty acids found in poultry fat, including both polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fatty acids, together with exceptionally high levels of Palmitoleic fatty acid. Palmitoleic fatty acid has the extraordinary property of being antimicrobial and is one of the many reasons that the cats eating Dr. B’s BARF patties maintain such magnificent health.
