Fish For Dogs

Fish For Dogs

Everyone knows that fish is good for you, but why? And what about contaminants like mercury or other toxins? To answer the first question, fish is a rich source of important omega-3 fatty acids. These are the ones that support the optimal functioning of the heart, eyes, immune system, skeletal system, and skin and coat. Supplementing with omega-3 rich foods can benefit such conditions as allergies, arthritis, heart disease, and even cancer. Of course, it is important to find high-quality sources of fish so that its benefits aren't outweighed by what may be contaminating it - including mercury.
