Sardine Dog Treats Australian, Organic
100% sardine just slow dried in ovens. preservative and additive free !
Sardines like our other fish treats and roo treats are organic by the nature of their environment (the open sea). The primary use for sardines is a nice clean protein for dogs (meat based and bio available) and good quality Omega 3. Note though, even though sardines are high in Omega 3, their overall fat content is considered too high for dogs with pancreatitis or on a very low fat diet.
Our sardine dog treats are firm and whole except for the head and tail. They are about 10 cm long and cut in half down the spine with major bone removed thous some fillets are still joined together but most are single side fillets. They are easy eating for ALL dogs.
The reason that you will choose our sardine dog treats over canned varieties is that high volume human grade canaries often use high heat treatment in their process, destroying many of the enzymes and nutritional value of their product.
Many experts tout the primary value of sardines as its omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA value) but they are also very rich in
- Vitamin B12 (cardiovascular well-being)
- Vitamin D and Phosphorous (both strengthening the bone matrix)
Sardines are rich in protein, which provides the kind of essential amino acids that are fully bio available to dogs (carnivore digestive systems favouring meat proteins to vegetable based proteins)
