Dogs are genetically predatorial animals. They also are an opportunist species, so naturally, their wild ancestors enjoyed a rich variety of prey. Goat made up part of their diet where and when goats were available.
Goat meat is regarded as nutritionally superior with higher iron, and lower levels of saturated fat, calories, and cholesterol. In fact, a goat has roughly 3% fat compared to chicken 7.4% and beef at a whopping 18.8%. Yet goat meat has similar quantities of protein to beef and chicken.
Goat accounts for nearly 70% of red meat consumed internationally, yet the environmental impact is significantly less than cattle. So, if you are concern about reducing carbon footprint, the goat should be on your dog’s menu.
