We all know how good omega 3 and fish oil supplement is for dogs, so why not feed the whole fish to boost omega 3 intake.

Whole pilchards are an excellent source of high quality protein and essential Omega 3 fatty acids. Omega 3 is vital for the health of the immune system, skin and fur, and brain. Unfortunately, in the modern diet we tend to eat far too much Omega 6 and not enough Omega 3, which can upset the balance of healthy fats and lead to inflammatory conditions. Adding wholefood sources of Omega 3, like pilchards, is an excellent way to combat this common dietary shortcoming.
Because they are small and sit low in the food chain, Pilchards also contain very low levels of mercury, when compared to larger fish with similar health benefits. They are an excellent source of B vitamins, especially vitamin B12, as well as calcium, selenium, iodine, phosphorous, iron and vitamin A.
Pilchards are also a rare dietary source of vitamin D, which is especially important for dogs as they do not effectively convert vitamin D from sunlight like we do. Vitamin D is important for strong and healthy bones and teeth, which are achieved by assisting with nutrient absorption and ensuring the body’s calcium and phosphorous levels are balanced.
