It’s also low in fat, and free of toxins found in most commercially produced meats. Venison is packed with Iron and Vitamin B. Our recipes are always free of grain and chicken, which makes our Venison Formula a great option for dogs who might have food sensitivities. Not to mention dogs love the taste.
