Still not convinced? Lets chat about some of the benefits of giving your pet Raw Salmon Bellies.
What are the benefits of feeding your dog salmon?
Rich in Protein: Salmon is a high-quality protein source, and dogs require protein for various bodily functions, including muscle maintenance, repair, and overall growth. Protein is essential for maintaining a healthy immune system and supporting a dog's energy levels.
Omega-3 Fatty Acids: Salmon is particularly known for its abundance of omega-3 fatty acids, such as EPA and DHA. These fatty acids play a crucial role in promoting healthy skin and coat, reducing inflammation, supporting joint health, and aiding cognitive function in dogs.
Nutrient-Dense: Freeze-dried raw salmon bellies retain most of their nutrients during the freeze-drying process. As a result, they offer a concentrated source of vitamins, minerals, and essential nutrients that contribute to a dog's overall health and well-being.
Is Salmon ok for dogs to eat?
Hypoallergenic: For dogs with food sensitivities or allergies to more common proteins like chicken or beef, salmon can be a suitable alternative. Being a novel protein, salmon is less likely to trigger allergic reactions in dogs, making it a valuable option for dogs with dietary restrictions.
Digestibility: Freeze-dried raw salmon bellies are minimally processed, preserving the natural enzymes and nutrients present in raw fish. This can enhance their digestibility, making it easier for dogs to absorb and utilise the nutrients effectively.
Dental Health: The freeze-dried texture of the salmon bellies provides a slightly crunchy texture, which can help promote dental health by reducing plaque and tartar buildup as dogs chew on them.
Training and Reward: Due to their desirable taste and smell, freeze-dried salmon bellies can be a highly effective training treat or a special reward for good behaviour. Their distinct flavour makes them appealing to most dogs.
It's important to note that while freeze-dried raw salmon bellies can be a healthy treat for many dogs, they should be used in moderation, just like any other treat. As with introducing any new food into a dog's diet, it's advisable to start with a small amount to ensure there are no adverse reactions or sensitivities. Always consult with your veterinarian before making significant changes to your dog's diet or treat options, especially if your dog has specific dietary needs or health concerns.
