Is Fish Safe for Your Pets?

Fish is a good source of several key vitamins and minerals that play important roles in maintaining your pet’s health throughout her life. It can form an important part of your Fresh Raw pet food diet for both your cats and dogs.

Fish have much higher levels of Omega 3 and Omega 6 than other proteins, which really help with the overall well being of your companion.

The Benefits of Omega-3 Fats

Most of us understand the health benefits of including Omega-3 fats in our own diets, but Omega-3 fats can also provide our pets with a range of health benefits when included in their diet through proteins.

Second to protein, fats are a vital part of our pets’ dietary requirements. Fats provide energy, are essential for normal cell function as well as the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E and K). Fats are also the precursor to hormones and have a significant impact on inflammation.

Omega-3 fats can help to control the inflammatory process in the body and can benefit pets in several ways including:

  • Healthy joint function – in all ages
  • Healthy skin and coat
  • Decreased Allergy occurrence and symptoms
  • Positive impact on inflammation throughout the entire system
  • Healthy cardiovascular function

Therefore a diet with adequate fat, the right type and balance of these fats, is just as important to your pets’ health, as it is our own.

How to incorporate Fish into your Raw Diet

Fresh fish is one of the best ways to integrate high quality omega-3 fatty acids into your pets’ diet.  It is also important to know where the fish that goes into your pet’s diets comes from so you can weigh up the pros and cons, such as contamination by heavy metals for example.

At Instincto we believe that fish should only make up part of your pet’s fresh food diet, as the Vitamin B group isn’t as high in this protein as it is with red meats.  We have a range of holistic blends where we balance fish and red meat to deliver a well rounded meal for your companion.

Some dogs will eat whole raw fish for a meal, and whilst they can take time to accept the acquired taste, cats will usually take to it immediately.

Care should be taken with the fins, but in general the fish offers an overall meal with the head/stomach/flesh providing an overall balance in percentages.
