Salmon is a great, lean protein that has a lot of added healthy fat and nutrition, and pups  LOVE it! Because of it’s fishy flavor, it is very palatable to your pooch, but little does he know of all of the added benefits and nutrition that are hidden in the scrumptiousness!

  • Protein: Necessary for Fido’s energy supply, and keeping him strong with long and lean muscles.

  • DHA and EPA: filled with these essential omega-3 fatty acids. These fatty acids are important for immune function (making sure that your pooch stays healthy), and also great heart health--insuring that cardiovascular function is at its best.

  • Vitamin D: necessary for calcium and phosphorus absorption in the diet to insure big, strong bones and healthy joint function.

Notes on Salmon:

  • Cook the salmon prior to feeding it to them (if you choose to feed them yourself), many proteins can be served raw to dogs, but make sure salmon is cooked to ensure that all parasites are removed

  • Cooking salmon is not required when in treat or food form, as is has already been processed, but please be aware of where the ingredients come from and how they are handled! Read more about INGREDIENTS.

Fun Facts about Salmon:

  • They are born in freshwater, travel to the ocean, and return to freshwater to reproduce.

  • They return to the exact same spot to birth as they were birthed! How cool is that!?

  • Bears in the forest and other mammals get nutrients from the ocean (nitrogen, sulfur, carbon) from the salmon that are caught traveling back from the ocean!
