Many types of fish such as Cod, Redfish and Sprats are not only tasty, but contain beneficial vitamins and minerals for your dog.
Fish is an excellent source of protein and Omega 3 fatty acids which are helpful in maintaining a glossy coat and healthy skin. Fish oil can also help to maintain healthy joints and keep a dog active throughout its life. Fish is also great for dogs that have sensitive stomachs and many vets prescribe fish and potato diets to help treat dogs with food allergies and intolerance.
Research has proven that continuous use of fish oil or treats can help reduce itchiness, rash and irritation of the skin.
In the Baltic, Russia and Scandinavian countries, dogs don’t eat meat at all – only fish, and their coats are shiny, they have no allergies or itchy skin conditions. They live longer and don’t suffer from arthritic joint conditions, or sensitive tummies.
The Omega 3 and zinc naturally occurring in fish helps with ZRD (zinc responsive dermatitis). This particularly affects dogs from Northern climates and can manifest itself in itchy skin, hot spots, cracked paws and noses.
Just like us – they really do need Omega 3 – it’s not called an Essential Fatty Acid for nothing – neither human or animal bodies can make this – so we both have to take it in as food.
All our treats are made from MSC certified cod caught in the North Atlantic or sprats caught in the Baltic Sea.
