Why Duck for Dogs

PetMD.com tells us, “Ducks are rich in iron and provide dogs with a lean, easy-to-digest protein source. Duck is also a great source of amino acids, which helps to support strong muscles.” PetMD.com goes on to explain that sometimes dogs may have allergies or digestive issues with chicken or beef, and you may find yourself looking for a nutritional alternative. Duck might be the perfect alternative option. Most dogs find duck to be very delicious, so duck is a great way to change up your dog’s diet.

There are many pet foods in the market that have “Duck” on the label, but is it real duck? How much duck is in it? Some companies will list “Duck” on the ingredient but how can you be sure of the quantity and quality.

Quality Duck Dog Food

You want to make sure that your dog is getting quality duck when you decide to add raw duck dog food into his diet. One of the questions you ask is where are the ducks sourced from? Duck sourced from some countries could put your dog at risk. At BJ’s, we source all our ducks from local traditional farms in the U.S. Some pet food companies are not transparent about their duck in their pet food. It may be advertised on the packaging as duck, but closer inspection shows it’s not the main ingredient. In the ingredients, they might use words like “duck meal” or “poultry meal”.

No Additives or Fillers

At BJ’s we are always transparent about what we sell because that is how business should be. We sell whole duck and ground duck. We also sell mix meals which include some duck. We don’t add any additives or flavor enhancers. Pure, natural, and honest pet food. Dogs require high moisture in their food (around 70%).
BJ’s duck dog food is fresh; therefore, the ducks are full of natural moisture. This helps your dog digest his food easier, and it helps him stays hydrated.
