Everyone knows fish is good for humans but did you know it’s good for your dogs for all the same reasons?

Fish depending on the species and source of origin can be really beneficial to support health long term, fish are full of bioactive compounds to support dogs on a cellular level improving mobility, immunity and reducing inflammation.

Spotlight Nutrients on Fish

Omega 3’s – Omega 3’s are an Essential Fatty Acid(EFA) that reduce inflammation in the body, they balance out the Omega 6’s in take they have also shown to improve skin/coat and joint health, There are various sources of Omega 3’s but in fish there broke down into 3 chains;

Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA)
Source: Fish/Shellfish

Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA)
Source: Fish/Shellfish/Some Algae

Calcium – Calcium is important to balance out the phosphorus and promote healthy bones/joints, If dog’s don’t have an appropriate source of calcium especially during growth/development, they risk developing ailments such as osteoporosis. (2.)

Vitamin D – vitamin D is important and linked with calcium/phosphorus, it helps keep them balanced/ by increasing calcium absorption/excretion. (3)

Elastin – Elastin is important for supporting muscle/connective tissue health during growth/development/recovery, a study showed that it’s 1000% more elasticated than collagen which is how it gets its name! (4.)

Trace Minerals – Manganese, Zinc, Iodine, Copper, Potassium, Sodium, Iron

When dog’s don’t get enough Omega 3, in the forms of EPA and DHA then inflammation usually occurs which can result in ailments such as joint pain, chronic itching, dry flaky skin, fur loss, dull coat, cracked pads.

This is why we released our Fishy Comets to the market, they are wild herring caught in the Baltic Sea processed by Rocketo with bioavailability in mind, this ensures all their health benefits remain intact.

Regardless of your dog’s diet, fish is an important addition, so you can add these in as snacks alongside your dog’s meals, even if you’re not feeding Rocketo meals.

We don’t recommend Fishy Comets should be more than 10% of your dog’s energy requirements, our Fish Comets provide 3292Kcal per Kg.
