Default Deer Meat

Quick question that I can't find an answer to. I have a deer coming any minute. I know I need to freeze it before feeding. It seems like I read some where that you need to add hamburger to the meat because it is so lean. If this true? Karly got a taste of deer meat and went crazy for it. I am so excited that she will now have a whole deer of her own!

I don't add anything to it.

If your dog is lean and needs to add a few pounds I wouldn't feed JUST the deer meat for the Muscle Meat.

According to the USDA Nutrient Database:

1 oz raw deer meat has 2.02 grams of fat

1 oz of beef heart has 1.12 grams of fat

1 oz of ground beef (85% lean) has roughly 4 grams of fat

Thank you Lauri. She is perfect on her weight but is only 3 months old so I am concerned about getting the right amount of fat in her diet. Maybe I should just replace the deer in one of her meals?

I would use it as part of her diet - maybe 3 times a week as a whole meal (meaning just deer meat for the MM).

Or, mix it with other meats to make it last longer. That's what I do since I don't get a whole deer (lucky Karly!!).

I agree with the others, I'd feed it as part of her over all diet but not exclusively. We've fed wild boar to ours when it was available.

Sometimes I'll take deer meet and run it through the blender. I'll use it to create a track for mind games, with a chunk at the end of the track for a reward.

I wouldn't play that game though if you were serious about SAR work or anything like that.
