100% Wild-caught Sardines
- Our sardines caught fresh from Pacific waters and flash frozen at sea to retain freshness. Unlike many farmed fishes or canned sardines, our sardines have no added salt, chemicals or preservatives that may harm your pets in the long run
- Sardines are full of Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) and omega-3 fatty acids that can be more easily absorbed by your pets than synthetic omega 3 oils which may be unstable and oxidised
- Nearly every chronic disease, from allergies and joint pain to diabetes and kidney disease, is caused by chronic inflammation. And chronic inflammation is caused by a diet that’s high in omega-6 fatty acids and low in omega-3 fatty acids.
- Sardines are a great protein source that provides significant Vitamin B3, B12 and D, selenium, healthy omega-3 Fatty acids, phosphorus and calcium
- The fatty acids have many health benefits, like cancer prevention, reducing inflammation (great for dogs with arthritis or flaky skin), and keeping the immune system strong.
- CoQ10 supports a healthy heart and circulation. The fatty acids also help brain development, which makes them good for puppies and kittens. CoQ10, aka Ubiquinol, is also excellent for preventing dental disease in canines, felines, and humans
- Studies have shown that omega-3s found in the sardine can inhibit the formation of tumours and prevent cancer from metastasizing. They do this by inducing a process in cancer cells called apoptosis. Today, science is also showing that an ample source of vitamin D, from the sardine, may turn out to play an important role in the prevention of certain types of cancer as well.
- Research suggests that supplementing with fatty acids found in sardines, is useful in preventing atopy (allergies to inhaled substances such as pollens and molds) from developing in young animals. Also, because of the incredible anti-inflammatory properties that the sardines carry, they are a great add to help reduce the chronic redness and inflamed skin some pets experience from these allergies.
- Studies in people show that supplementing with DHA (found in sardines), is beneficial in supporting cognitive health in aging brains. A study on beagle puppies found DHA improved cognitive learning and motor skills during the developmental stages. Therefore, sardines help sharpen your pet's learning abilities, memory, eye function and psychomotor skills.
- One small sardine contains about 25 calories and 175 mg of omega-3 fatty acids, a good dose for a dog who weighs 20 pounds or less.
- Sardines are regarded as sustainable fish with low mercury load
- Can be crushed and used as a meal topper
Worried about heavy metal contamination?
Sardines are a short-lived fish. Therefore they don't have a lot of time to accumulate a ton of toxins from the water. They are at the bottom of the aquatic food chain as well, meaning they only feast on plankton. So they don't concentrate heavy metals, such as mercury, and contaminants as do other fish.
