The table below is based on "as fed" measures.
- Emu Oil
Emu Oil is a natural food product obtained from the body fat of the Emu bird. Over the centuries Emu Oil has been used for its natural healing properties and was thought to have various anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal properties as well. Emu Oil today is widely understood to offer a complete source of essential fatty acids such as Omega 3, 6 & 9.
There are two main industries using emu oil, the cosmetic industry for topical use and the food industry for oral use. We use food grade Emu Oil, which has been used in both the human and pet sector for decades.
Key benefits of Emu Oil are varied as follows:
- Higher in protein than beef.
- Lower in saturated fat than most meat.
- Lower cholesterol than chicken.
- Good source of Omega 3, 6 & 9.
- Also a natural source of Omega 7.
- 100 % Australian Made
The original recipe for Black Hawk pet food was developed and manufactured here in Australia more than 10 years ago. For many of those years the recipe was exported under private label to various countries to satisfy an ever growing need for Australian made, super premium foods.
However, it wasn’t until 2007 that demand was created here in Australia for an affordable, super premium pet food, a food that could also maintain a high standard of quality and consistency. Black Hawk, the brand, was created to successfully fill a niche within the Australian market place. You can find out more about our history by visiting our About Black Hawk page.
We are 100% Australian made & owned and very proud of this fact.
- The Hollistic Approach
There are many different schools of thought regarding what holistic means. Some believe holistic simply means natural, while others believe holistic to embody not only a diet of whole foods, but an overall lifestyle embracing mind, body and spirit for inner health, peace and wellbeing. Black Hawk sits in the middle of these two extremes and believes holistic food to have a multitude of health benefits from the inside out. Holistic foods incorporate functional ingredients that are whole foods which have individual or associated benefits for optimal health and wellbeing.
Being holistic does not mean our food is created without the benefit of science and research. The Black Hawk base recipe was scientifically developed with guidance from a world renowned pet food research and development team, having extensive experience in pet nutrition. It is from this base recipe that Black Hawk, as we know it today, was created. All our recipes are scientifically formulated to be complete and balanced, while also meeting the AAFCO standards for growth and maintenance of puppies, kittens, cats and dogs.
