Animal ethics are extremely important to us and we are one of the only brands to have a cage-free policy. We do not use any caged animals such as rabbits for this reason. Veal is something that we have thought long and hard about as calves are not reared specifically for our use. We use calf lung, rumen and heart along with venison meat in our Veal with Venison wet food. Both are reared cage-free and in the wild wolves/dogs would hunt for such animals, usually taking down the younger prey as easier targets. Arguably their killing process is less humane and more protracted than abattoirs. If we were to rule out using veal on the grounds of the abattoir alone then we would also not be sourcing any other meats and end up with a vegan food which is not what our customers are looking for. We are open to listening to different viewpoints on this matter though and if there is a general consensus amongst our customers to delist it then we would consider it.
