When it comes to protein sources, fish protein is one of the best sources of dietary protein for dogs, cats and humans. Not only does it provide the necessary daily protein requirement and amino acid profile that a mammal requires, but it also is rich in Omega 3 which is very good for your heart.
There are 3 types of Omega fatty acids; Omega 3, Omega 6, Omega 9. Omega 3 is the healthiest while Omega 9 is the unhealthiest. There are many dog food formulations that claim to have fish protein but a lot of these "fish" based dog food are actually made from byproducts. Byproducts are not very good sources of fish protein because you don't know exactly what kind of fish it came from.
There is one fish based dog food that is very healthy for your dog. The Wellness Dog Core Dog Ocean dog food from Pet Store comes from a well established name in dog food, the Wellness Corporation. The Wellness Corporation has a long history of paying close attention to a dog's nutritional needs. True to form, Wellness Dog Core Dog Ocean food is made from very high quality ocean based protein sources. They only use four fish types: deboned white fish, high quality white fish, salmon and menhaden fishes. These of course come in fish meal form before it is made into pellets by Wellness Dog Core Dog Ocean food.
What makes this formulation and fish selection interesting is that they use high quality white fish, which has low ash content. There are many fish meal based dog food in the market today that uses high-ash fish meal; this is not as healthy as low-ash fish meal.
This combination of four quality fish meal sources is made even better because the Wellness brand uses only Human Grade fish content. Human Grade means that the fish that went into your dog's food; in theory could be eaten by a human being. It's that clean and possesses that high level of quality. Sadly most dog food formulations out there use "meat" and protein that are not fit for human consumption. Most of it are from byproducts; basically wasted meat or just by catch, which are fish that are caught by ocean trollers. These are normally thrown away because they aren't meant for human beings.
With Wellness Dog Core Dog Ocean Food, you're finally giving your dog real fish food that is of very high quality. Stop settling for second best. Get your dog the best ocean based food it deserves. Buy a package of Wellness Dog Core Dog Ocean today.
