Turducken

Pet owners love Steve’s Real Food Turducken Diet for its high protein and low-fat content.  Unlike the Chicken and Turkey Diet, Turducken has a high level of Zinc and Manganese wich has shown to help with preventing ACL tears.

One of the differences between Steve’s and other raw meat diets is our meat-to-veggie ratio of 80% to 20%. This gives your dog nutrition that provides the proteins and  essential vitamins and minerals that help fight disease and promote strong bones, muscles, and organ function.

Ingredient Benefits

CHICKEN is a highly digestible protein that is a rich source of Niacin. Niacin is known for is cancer-protective properties, and Niacin deficiency has been directly linked to genetic (DNA) damage. In addition, chicken is a good source of Selenium, a trace mineral with fundamental importance to many body functions such as thyroid function, antioxidant defense, and immune function.

TURKEY is a highly digestible protein that is a rich source of Selenium, a mineral lauded for its many supportive properties. Turkey is known for providing the most protein punch for the caloric intake. This low fat protein is also high in Tryptophan that is needed for T-cells, a type of immune system cell that kills cancer cells.

DUCK contains high levels of Iron, Selenium and B vitamins, making it an energy-packed source of protein.  The bones are ground for added calcium, essential fatty acids, proteins, and enzymes.

APPLES are very high in dietary fiber and Vitamin C and are a known source of antioxidants.

CARROTS are a good source of Vitamin A, which is known to help with vision. Their high levels of dietary fiber make them a good digestive aid.

FLAXSEED is an optimal source OF Omega-3 fatty acids that aid in the cardiovascular and immune system by acting as an anti-inflammatory. Its concentration in fiber is also known to help prevent constipation.

RAW GOAT MILK is one of the most complete foods there is because it has almost all the vitamins and minerals needed to sustain life. It is most similar to breast milk – even closer than baby formula. Unlike cow’s milk, it has many more short and medium-chain fatty acids, increasing its digestibility.

COCONUT OIL is an allergy fighting ingredient with strong anti-inflammatory characteristics. It is high in lauric acid, is an antimicrobial that also reduces yeast.

Nutritional Analysis

In the 2015 NCHS, Steve Brown noted that AAFCO’s and the European equivalent nutritional requirements for dogs and cats are about half, if not one-third that of what the ancestral diet is. He also noted that the only way to achieve the same levels would be to feed 100% wild game and that there are very few pet parents who would have access to that. In the nutritional chart below we shows you the AAFCO requirements for adult dogs and cats and note when our nutrient levels are double that of AAFCO.
