Health Benefits of Salmon

Salmon is one of the most nutrient dense foods in the world with many health benefits for dogs and cats.

1. Hip and Joint Health

Inflammation contributes to bone resorption, a process in which bone tissue is broken down. Since omega-3-rich salmon is a natural anti-inflammatory, dogs and cats benefit greatly from daily salmon consumption.

2. Brain and cognitive function

Omega-3-rich foods increase the efficiency of various brain functions in dogs and cats. This is further supported with the additional vitamin A, vitamin D and selenium contained in salmon which help maintain a healthy nervous function in dogs and cats.

3. Heart Health

Omega-3 fatty acids contained in salmon may reduce inflammation in dogs and cats. Inflammation in the body of pets can damage blood vessels and lead to heart disease and other health related issues.

4. Skin and Coat Health

Because of the high levels of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals as well as omega fatty acids, salmon helps maintain healthy skin and glossy coats. Salmon also minimises free radical damage in dogs and cats.

5. General wellbeing

There is plenty of evidence indicating the benefits that salmon may have for prevention and treatment of cancers, improved eyesight and general health and wellbeing. Salmon is packed full of essential vitamins and mineral, omega fatty acids and antioxidants which all help support healthy lifestyles for dogs and cats.

Salmon is a tender, delicious and easily digestible protein full of amino acids and omega fatty acids for bone, muscle and healthy heart function. Salmon also contains selenium and phosphorus for healthy joints and vitality in dogs and cats.
