Omega-3 helps a dog’s coat, skin, and joints to stay healthy
The colder weather will soon be upon us, and Natural Cornish Pet are reminding dog owners that now is the time to think about conditioning your dog for the winter. This is particularly true when it comes to older dogs who start to feel the effects of the cold weather on their joints and coat and skin.
There are many reasons why you should introduce fish into your dog’s diet. Fish is a great source of Omega 3 which is an essential fatty acid. It has anti-inflammatory properties which help to condition the coat and skin and aid in joint mobility and cardiac health. The omega oils contained in fish are also great for brain development.
If you feed your Westie certain types of fish treats, you will find that they are great for their dental health as the rough texture of dried fish skin encourages dogs to chew and remove any tartar from their teeth. They can also aid in digestion as fish protein reduces the growth of unwanted gut bacteria and is a help for dogs with sensitive tummies and older dogs with slower digestive systems. Fish is also low in fat so it is perfect as a tasty treat, avoiding any obesity issue which is so important in aging dogs.
Specialising in natural pet foods, treats and quality pet accessories, Natural Cornish Pet based in St Erth, Cornwall has a tasty range of fish-based toppers and treats to reward your dog with, as well as a cold-pressed food range that contains fish.
The fish treat range includes bags of natural dried sprats, fish finger chews, salmon potato cookies, white fish cookies and white fish cubes. All are available to buy in a range of bag sizes from small treat pouch size up to 1kg bags.
Natural Cornish Pet’s Boost and Nourish range consists of meal toppers in Cornish Salmon, Cornish Whitefish and Cornish Redfish varieties. These are ideal for adding that fishy goodness to any meal.
