At Shine Pet Food: To meet our ethical and sustainability standards, we go halfway around the world—to family farms in New Zealand—for our grass-fed venison.
The Benefits: Venison contains more easily absorbable iron than any other meat, including beef and lamb, and it’s packed with other nutrients—phosphorus, selenium, zinc, copper, and a number of B vitamins, to name a few. It’s also very low in fat.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine: Venison is sweet and warm in nature. It nourishes the kidney yang, which means it’s good for energy and building overall strength.
