Why Fish is so good for our pooches.

Dog thinking of fish

Everyone knows that fish is good for you. It is the same for dogs. It is a great source of healthy protein whilst topping up those Omega 3 fatty acids.

It is easily digestible and offers a great alternative to those dogs which are allergic to other proteins such as chicken or beef. Your dog will find a delicious source of calcium, magnesium, selenium, zinc, phosphorus and iodine.

Whilst fish may be smelly it’s unique combination of vitamins and minerals offers a great natural anti-inflammatory – whether there are joint issues or digestive problems.

The best bit is that all of this goodness is naturally within the food and NOT added after processing.

But why stop there? Here are five great reasons to include raw fish in your dog’s diet:

Vitamin A
promotes good vision in low light, slows down age related deterioration and helps in treatment of many common eye issues. It also helps strengthen your dogs immune system fighting off illness and infection.

Omega 3
Maintains a healthy skin and a nosey disposition (the lining of your dog’s nose is kept in tip top condition) for an unbeatable sense of smell!
Dogs with skin conditions could be helped with reduced irritation – making for much happier dogs. Maintains healthy joints and tendons – fighting off age related deterioration and arthritis.

Selenium
Maintains a healthy immune system and helps to prevent cell and tissue damage.

Vitamin D
Helps the body absorb calcium and phosphorus – both essential for strong bones and teeth.

Calcium
Gives bones and teeth their strength but also ensures blood clots normally, regulates muscle contractions including heartbeats! It also has a role in cell functioning, nerve function and digestion!
