Some dogs can stomach just about anything and be none the wiser. Many dogs, though, have food sensitivities that can cause digestive upset and other bodily distress. These dogs still deserve delight in their dinner bowl. You just need to find the right ingredients to feed their sensitive souls – and bellies! Ingredients like wild-caught Alaska Salmon and Pollock.
So, what is it about wild Alaska Salmon and Pollock that makes them such a great choice for dogs with food sensitivities? Let us count the ways:
High Quality Protein
Both Alaska Pollock and Salmon, such as that found in Alaska Naturals® Wild Alaska Salmon and Pollock Jerky, are considered lean protein sources, meaning they contain less saturated fats compared to other land-based protein sources.
Both deliver natural sources of omega-3 fats, meaning they contain EPA and DHA fatty acids which are essential to maintain your dog’s shiny coat and healthy skin.
In the right recipes, these fish offer a simple, limited ingredient option for sensitive dogs. Alaska Naturals® Wild Alaska Salmon Oil Formula and Pollock Oil food topper for dogs are a wonderful source of high-quality, grain-free good fats, sourced straight from the wild, pristine waters of Alaska. With wild-caught fish listed as the main ingredient, the Alaska pollock oil formula uses just two ingredients, and only three for the Salmon oil formula!
Omega-3 Fatty Acids
Both Alaska Pollock and Salmon contain omega-3 fatty acids, which help support healthy skin and coat for dogs. The naturally occurring EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids found in Alaska Naturals® Wild Alaska Salmon Oil Formula and Pollock Oil food topper for dogs, for example, help nourish your pup’s skin and helps maintain a smooth, lustrous coat. DHA omega-3 fatty acids also support brain health.
Both fish are easily digestible, making them gentle on the digestive system and suitable for dogs with sensitive stomachs.
Wild Alaska Salmon and Pollock are recognized by the FDA as safe to consume “best choices” as they are naturally low in mercury.
Many dogs find the smacks-of-the-sea taste of Alaska Pollock and Salmon extremely drool-inducing. Aside from adding deliciousness to your dog’s diet, this also makes these fish a great choice to entice picky eaters.
When sourced from the right places – such as the 100% wild and sustainably caught Alaska Salmon and Pollock used in all Alaska Naturals® dog food products – you can be sure they are a wholesome, safe option for dogs with sensitivities.
