Contains too much bone
By Catherine on July 27, 2022
This is high-quality meat, but the mechanical deboning is NOT adequate if you need boneless meat, say because you have a CKD kitty or otherwise need to limit phosphorus. You can actually see and feel little chunks of bone in this product.
Hare Today response: From our product description: "Given the de-boning process, it is possible for small fragments of bone to be present." If it were me, I would thoroughly review the ground product and use my hands (with gloves) to feel if bone is present and remove fragments prior to using if low phosphorus is a goal within the dietary needs.
A favorite for my picky cats
By MARIYAH on February 26, 2022
My cats were hesitant to try raw food but this converted them in no time! I make a boneless mix with the eggshell alnutrin to make a complete and balanced meal and they love it.
Nothing can top rabbit
By chenkun on June 27, 2021
Adding boneless rabbit ground meat to mix with 80-10-10 ground meat is great to make nutrition more balanced. My cats favorite meat.
Perfect to add 1lb to 5lb Meat/Bones/Organs
By Keirnan on November 27, 2020
A perfect compliment to the 5lb tube of (rabbit) Meat/Bones/Organs, as this is to bone heavy alone.
It looks so attractive that I'd eat it by myself (just kidding)
By Aleksandra on June 9, 2019
Came to me frozen and hard as brick! That was a good choice I made to start to introduce my cat to raw food. I bought actually 5lb of boneless and 5lb with bones, etc of rabbit. And I made 3 parts: boneless, 3/4boneless+1/4 with bones and only with bones and organs. So, it gives me a freedom to mix and try around different styles and approachings. Now, I am about to order 8 one pounds separately of still boneless rabbit meat and Alnutrin with calcium. and 2lb of chicken organs. It will give me maneuver to defrost only part and 1lb will defrost faster than 5 lb and I am very tight for a time. Hopefully my cat will feel more and more comfortable consuming raw food, so I could experiment with other proteins to cut costs and give variation for a balance.
Anyway, I just saved my cat's life with your product and actual existing of your company! I am so proud that I made this decision. It was not easy for me. But I love my rescued cat; she already living with me and she deserve to be happy and live as long as it suppose to be naturally.
Packaged Poultry In Rabbit Wrapper
By Virginia on April 21, 2019
I have purchased product from Hare Today for over a year now. I have two large dogs, and they eat a lot of meat. Because of their allergies I purchased a wide variety of meats. I am now very familiar with the color, texture, and smell of almost all of the meats offered at Hare Today. I purchased two 5 lb chubs of boneless rabbit after having purchased numerous chubs of bone-in/organ/rabbit before. The color, texture and smell of the first chub was spot on for rabbit. The second chub opened around 3 weeks later is clearly poultry. It has the color, texture, and smell of poultry. There is nearly a $40 difference between what seems like chicken breast and the rabbit I ordered. When I brought this to the attention of Hare Today I was promptly told there was no possibility of mistakes. Apparently mistakes are never made in their company, even though they have admitted to sending me older product that made it through "by mistake." I am 100% certain what I opened was not the rabbit I paid for. Apparently many people confuse rabbit for poultry, according to Amy from Hare Today. Which means this has more than likely happened before...mistake or fraud. Fool me once, shame on you. I'll be looking for another company.
Hare Today Response:
I stand behind our products and would never be dishonest. I would also humbling admit if there was ever a mistake. Please know that I take this very seriously and when I received Virginia's voicemail on Easter Sunday, I called back within a few hours, same day.
In fact, Virginia purchased only 1, 5 lb. chub of boneless rabbit (not 2 as she mentioned above) and she was comparing this to our Ground Rabbit/Bones/Organs. Our Boneless Ground Rabbit is USDA certified and is different from our Ground Rabbit/Bones/Organs as we source that locally and retain as much blood as possible when processing that. Our Boneless Ground Rabbit product description mentions the following, "not a lot of blood is retained, so much lighter in color then the regular ground rabbit/bone and organs".
I post all reviews, the good, the bad and even wrong, as transparency is a value I hold to a high regard.
But truthfully, there were no mix-ups here.
Super high-quality food that the cats and dog love
By Laura on February 2, 2019
I got my first order of boneless rabbit from Hare-Today last week, and it is a HUGE hit with our cats and dog. I have a cat with IBD/pancreatitis who has been eating prescription and commercial canned food made with rabbit, and while she's been doing fairly well, she had a pancreatitis flare a couple of months ago that made me rethink her diet. Although she may never go to fully raw, I wanted to try homemade cooked for her, and given her success eating rabbit, that was the logical choice to try first. I am so glad to have found Hare-Today, because they are the only source of *boneless* ground rabbit that I know of, and the quality of the product is far better than I was expecting. (I didn't really know what to expect, to be honest.) The 5 lb. chubs were expertly packed in the shipping box with dry ice and styrofoam insulation, to the extent that even though the order took 7 days to arrive (simply because of the rural nature of where I live and the fact that we don't have weekend Fed Ex delivery as a result), the meat was partially thawed but still ice cold to the touch when I unpacked it. This was actually perfect, as I was able to put most of the meat in the freezer as is and then slice off serving sizes from one of them and easily re-pack those smaller amounts into plastic containers for re-freezing. The meat itself is very fresh, and all the pets start milling around the kitchen whenever I cook some of it for them. I haven't started mixing it with Alnutrin or EZ complete yet, but that's the ultimate goal. In the meantime, it is the perfect way to transition my IBD kitty to cooked food, and it's a bonus treat for all the other pets.

For IBD dog
By christine on June 7, 2018
I have a malinois with IBD (doesn't present as usual IBD case - she has a gag instead of the usual intestinal issues). I use the boneless ground rabbit with the bones/organs/meat to feed her, as IBD dogs do best with low fat diets. I mix in a little bit of the boneless to keep her from getting constipated (the bones/organs backs her up, so I add in a little of the boneless to dilute the ratio).
It's been very hard to find a food that she's good with, and this seems to minimize her symptoms.
Just starting to add other low fat meats to her diet. Fingers crossed!!
Cats natural diet
By Destiny on May 13, 2018
My cat adores rabbit and I feel it's as close to natural as it can get.
By Brittany on March 23, 2018
This is one of my Chihuahua's favorite meat. It's a lot... softer? than other meats. Not sure how to describe what I mean. Maybe because it is a bit more moist than other meats. Despite the description saying not much blood is retained, I found my chub to be very moist and had quite a bit of blood in it. No complaints from me though. My dog likes the meat bloody.
Rusty loves this
By Gina on March 20, 2018
Rabbit is one of my cats favorite. Very pleased with Hare Today's quality and service.
Very moist product
By Amy on January 23, 2018
I didn't realize that this was such a moist product. It seems a lot wetter then other meats I've gotten. I needed to lightly cook it for my dog (he didn't want to eat it raw) and lost about 50% by weight in water. I'm not sure I would buy it again if I need to cook it but might if a pet would eat it raw.
Response: Meat naturally contains about 75% water, but can vary depending on the cut. The percentage of water in a cut can vary depending on the time of the year, kind of meat and type of muscle.
As listed within the analysis tab for this product, the moisture is slightly higher than the average according to the USDA (max.) 80%.
CATS AND DOG LOVE THIS!
By Bisera on August 20, 2017
This is one of my pets' favorite food. I mix it with 10% of the rabbit with bones/organs/meat so they get a bit of organs and bones too. The color is much more pale than the one with organs.
ADD ON TO RABBIT MEAT/BONES/ORGANS
By Bisera on May 16, 2017
I buy a 5 lb. bag of this Boneless Ground Rabbit and mix it to a 5 lb. bag of Ground Rabbit meat/bones/organs combo and it was a successful introduction to my cats.
If it is your pet's very first time to try meat/bones/organs combo, you can add a bit more boneless meat and they will have a smoother transition eating meats with bones and organs until they're used to it then you can gradually just feed them the original 5 lb. bag of Ground Rabbit meat/bones/organ combination.
I also add about a cup of filtered water to add moisture.
By Akiko on March 30, 2017
For Vegetarian Mama Hare Today's ground meat offering is such a relief. We received our 1st frozen meat order today and made Rabbit meal. Both kitties and human are still in process of transition, but we are making good progress - thanks to Hare today!
Oh and after tasting Rabbit meal, kitties noticed bunny ear (which we previously ordered) is not just a toy but seems edible - and tried to gnaw! (with no success), So excited!
By Rosemary on June 24, 2016
I combine the ground rabbit with a raw feline pre-mix. I also add some boneless rabbit chunks for texture. All 4 kitties love it. I love the convenience of not having to grind my own meat. As with everything else I've ordered I can see and smell the freshness and so can the kitties.
Integral Part of a Balanced Recipe
By Kristin on March 22, 2016
My IBD cat is restricted to rabbit, thankfully he loves it and Hare Today is a consistent, incredibly helpful supplier! I use the boneless ground as part of a balanced recipe combined with regular ground rabbit (bones included), ground organ, and some chunks to make sure the level of calcium is a bit lower than full ground only.
By Dawn on March 25, 2015
This is my kitty's favorite and I love that it is fresh and is so easy to mix and portion out for him. I love knowing that I am giving him the absolute best!!
By Antoinette on August 22, 2014
When I first read the article on catinfo.org, I thought "Yeah, in a perfect world this would be great". I went about my business, continuing to rescue cats and dogs. After losing many nights of sleep dealing with health issues with some of my rescues, I decided it was time to put my money where my mouth is and try giving these poor animals the best nutrition they could have. Not only did everyones health improve greatly only after two weeks of half raw half canned diet, I noticed some of my more extreme patients (animals) were healing emotionally and physically at a much faster rate than I could have hoped for. The only thing I changed was their diet! Hare-today has made a raw believer out of me. I wish I could do the purest diet using only raw materials like this ground rabbit. However with the transitioning of these animals and my ever decreasing budget I am only able to work with a 50/50 recipe, even with that the results were astonishing.
By frank on May 28, 2013
With 2 cats, the 1lb packages are about right for me. Their food is supplemented with Royal Canin SO as once had had a bout of crystals, but since adding raw they have both thrived and are happy!
By caryn on May 21, 2013
I add this into a mix with 5 lbs of ground rabbit meat bones and organs, my cat will not eat anything else!!! Please don't ever go out of business Tracy!!!!
By Jennifer on April 29, 2013
My cats love the rabbit meat. It is their favorite meal. I have to tempt them to eat all other meats with a bit of fish, but rabbit, they will gobble up right away. They can not get enough of it.
By Lyn on February 26, 2013
The boneless ground rabbit was an instant hit with my Doberman, Charlie Brown! Before I switched to rabbit as Charlie's source of protein, his pre-dinner behavior was to go and take a nap. His new routine is to stand in the kitchen and watch me, occasionally throwing a whine or two into the mix to hurry me up! To say he loves it would be an understatement!
By Michael on June 5, 2012
Both our cats are in love with this product!! When we open it, between the two cats, they'll eat a pound of this in one day!!
By Jessica on March 6, 2012
The 1 lb size on this makes adding boneless meat in order to reduce the bone to meat ratio in my raw cat food recipe very simple. Great product!
By S.A. on February 19, 2012
I began buying the boneless rabbit for my CKD kitty and I believe the raw diet has helped her a lot in staying on track. She is more vibrant and alert when she is eating a raw diet. On a side note thanks to Tracy also for her customer service - with my first order she noted that I was eligible for a downgrade in S&H and credited me immediately; I appreciated the integrity. Maybe I can convince her to do a Dbl fine grind of boned rabbit so my CKD'er can still get the bones without having to add a CA+ supplement. *hint, hint* Thanks Hare 2 day!

My cat has been eating rabbit for several years. It's the only thing that keeps his ph levels where they should be. Before rabbit he had several bouts of urinary blockage. He even spent 2 days at a Auburn Vet School trying to determine what was causing the ph problem. Most vets and this vet school wanted him to eat the prepared urinary tract medical diet. One made his ph too high and the other too low. Scared I was going to loose him I decided to switch him to a raw diet and used rabbit because it was a meat he had not been eating. Within three days his ph levels were normal. Now, I'm bravely trying a one pound package of mouse. Must admit the mouse seems a bit creepy, but if Puku likes it and he is well on it, I'll get used to eat. I'll see how he feels about eating it first. By the way, all the urinary tract problems arose while Puku was on his way to a national win in the Cat Fanciers Association. He was 18th best cat in the US in 2005. Puku is a chocolate spotted ocicat. Official name, GC, NW, Tribal Kambara Puku of Spots O'Lot. He and I share a heart it seems and I'd to anything to keep him healthy. Since this exerience with Puku I have recommeded a raw diet to many people who had pets with digestive disorders etc. Raw has never failed to prove successful.

I am so glad you started your business! My cats love your ground rabbit!! I have been feeding HT ground rabbit (complete with bones and organs) for over 6 mos to my two cats, Pip and Kiko and they eat every single bite, almost never have hairballs and have beautiful fur. HT is a godsend! Thank you, thank you, thank you....

My one-year-old cat has IBD (Inflammatory Bowel Disease). He has had liver problems for months now and has been very sick. Steroids helped his bloodwork, but nothing could rid him of his diarrhea, which he's had since he was 2 months old, despite tons of medicatoin. I was told to try a raw meat diet of something he'd never had before, so as a last resort I tried rabbit from Hare-Today. Within 24 hours his diarrhea was gone!! I am thrilled with Hare-Today and just placed my next order. Thank you guys for doing an unpleasant job (grinding the rabbit) so I don't have to!
Bettagurl and "Jaguar"
By Laura on November 18, 2005
Hare Today's ground rabbit with bones and organs became the only food my picky cats will eat with excitement. I'd tried other raw foods before that and they just weren't having it! People kept telling me how hard it is to switch cats over to a raw food diet when they are older (my cats are 9 and 12), but when I put a little bit of Hare Today rabbit in with their canned food, they ate the rabbit and left their regular food! They must smell how fresh and natural Hare Today rabbit is.
Just this week, I ran out of meat for my cats and was waiting for my next order to arrive from Hare Today. For a couple of days, my cats would barely touch the natural canned food I gave them (that they used to love). As soon as the rabbit arrived, they were back to eating like the hungry little carnivores I know and love!
By Judy on November 11, 2005
Like all of Hare-Today's products - the ground rabbit is wonderful in that it has the organs and bones included. I like feeding a good amount of organ meats! Even my cat loves this choice more than anything else I can feed her.
I also like Hare today because of the focus on carefully-raised animals and the attention to what the customers want. And I know if I have any requests - they will be considered.
It is also great to be able to get whole bones with lots of MEAT on them - thanks Tracy!
