80% Salmon, Trout, Haddock and Herring (including over 60% Freshly Prepared Fish)
You simply cannot currently get any more meat into a dry kibble, and this is fish of the highest quality, including Freshly Prepared Scottish Salmon. These are highly digestible sources of protein, essential amino acids and omega 3 and 6 fatty acids. I could talk all day about the multitude of benefits that these fish can bring to your dog, especially by using such a high proportion of freshly prepared fish. You should see a much-improved shine to your dog’s coat, an improvement in his skin condition and a smaller, firmer stool as the end product. Whilst on the inside, the fish is providing many unseen benefits, such as reducing inflammation caused by arthritis or allergies, improving brain and eye development, supporting the immune system and providing key nutrients such as vitamin D and potassium.
7% Sweet Potato
A highly digestible and tasty carbohydrate that acts as a perfect substitute to grain. It is low in fat but packed with nutrients, including fibre, vitamin B6, vitamin C and manganese. One of its key benefits is the amount of beta-carotene that is contains; once converted to vitamin A by your dog’s body, it can help to improve vision and muscle strength, whilst supporting the liver, kidneys and lungs. I’ve even written a blog dedicated to the humble sweet potato, you can read it here.
