These salmon dog treats are soft and delicious, with lots of nutrients good for dogs, such as Omega-3 fatty acids, high quality animal protein, and antioxidants. My dog loves anything that tastes "fishy" and follows me everywhere with the "can't-I-have-more" look whenever I make these treats for her.
The recipe for these gluten free dog treats uses salmon, which is very rich in vitamins B12, B3, B6, and D. It is also loaded with Omega-3 fatty acids, protein, as well as selenium.
As you know, Omega-3 FAs are very beneficial for dogs since they have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, and are essential for the health of a dog's skin and hair coat. Omega-3s also enhance joint health. Dogs with joint problems such as osteoarthritis can benefit from Omega-3s.
In addition, foods rich in Omega-3s are good for the eyes - they protect the eyes from developing macular degeneration and chronic dry eye.
Further, Omega-3s is believed to have anti-cancer properties because they are anti-inflammatory.
But, wait a minute... What about the safety of salmon or other fish for dogs? Aren't they all loaded with toxins such as mercury? If you are concerned about this, please see this page for more information.
