Buffalo vs. Bison

Dog Fact I Learned Today~ “When many of us hear the word “buffalo” we imagine the lumbering animal found in North America – but that won’t be true on your dog food label! Early American settlers called bison “buffalo” because the animals reminded them of the African Cape buffalo or Asian water buffalo, but the name “buffalo” stuck for the American variety. But it’s wrong. If it’s from the U.S. the protein will always be called “Bison” whereas protein labeled Buffalo will usually come from Africa or Asia.”

Bet you didn’t know that Bison is the only meat considered non allergenic. Meaning people and dogs that don’t tolerate other forms meats are able to eat it instead.
