Hare is a high quality protein. Hare is classed as a novel protein (meaning a protein some dogs have not tried before). This means it is ideal for dogs with allergies and can help as part of an elimination diet. It is an excellent source of iron and a good source of phosphorus, magnesium, potassium and calcium. Weight is for shipping purposes only. Can be fed as a whole meal. Suitable for large puppies and adult dogs. Please note, these are wild caught hares and may contain shot or shot fragments.
