Say Ooh to Ostrich

Say Ooh to Ostrich

Is your pet bored of beef? Fed up of fish? Lackluster with lamb? We have the answer for you.

From chicken and beef, fish to lamb, many household brands of dog food pack their foods with dog’s beloved meaty favourites – no surprise – they absolutely love them. However, if we were made to eat the same protein day in day out – bored is the least we would be. This is no different for our dogs. Like us, as dogs get older palettes develop and the urge to try exciting new flavours is just as tempting for them as it is for us. Despite our love for all things British bred and farmed, occasionally there are times we want to explore the delicious delicacies from across the waters.

For all you dog owners out there who notice your pets are finding popular meats all too monotonous, we might just have a little (or big) bird holding the secret to adding some fantastic flavour to your dog’s bowl this spring.


Yes that’s right. We said Ostrich.

This beautiful bird of Africa can actually be a significantly beneficial piece of protein for our dogs. But if the thought of you four-legged friend chomping down on something a little far from home – don’t bury your head in the sand and take a peek at why we say ooh to ostrich.

Why Ostrich for dogs?

Here at the Natural Cornish Pet Shop, we believe if it’s great for dogs then they definitely should be eating it. We stand by products that promise nutrition, health benefits and too be delicious beyond belief and if there is one product that has caught our attention – it’s hypoallergenic Ostrich meat.

Rare and extremely lean, this magical mammal provides a whole heap of nutrition for both ourselves and our pets. Due to its rarity, there are hardly any allergies in relation to Ostrich so it makes a great food source of dogs with common food intolerances. Some of the fantastic benefits of Ostrich meat are:

  • Low in fat, cholesterol and calories – great for dog’s with tummy problems and weight management
  • High in iron – Keeping energy levels maintained through oxygen transportation around the body
  • Easily digestible – Cuts down on bloating and waste (less poop to scoop)

Being exceptionally tasty and great for all-round health, it’s crazy we haven’t been eating Ostrich sooner.
