Many dogs and cats are allergic to proteins, including chicken, so finding an alternative protein source that works for your furry friend is essential.
Food allergens are one of the leading causes of allergic reactions in animals. Chicken is one of the most frequent allergens among dogs, accounting for roughly 15% of cases, while fish and rice contribute only about 2%.
In this post, we’ll discuss the importance of finding an alternative protein source for pets with allergies and the benefits of fish-based protein from FLR’s Complete Raw Meals, with a particular focus on the nutritional benefits of Arctic Charr.
The Benefits of Fish-Based Protein
At Fish Lake Road (FLR), we prioritize using fish-based protein in our raw meals to reduce the risk of an allergic reaction to chicken or beef. Fish is also known to be beneficial for your pet’s overall health.
Reducing the Risk of Cardiovascular Problems
Fish is a great source of Omega-3 fatty acids, which help reduce the risk of cardiovascular problems and support brain function.
Among the various types of fish, Arctic Charr is full of flavour and nutrition and a great source of Omega-3 fatty acids.
Reducing the Risk of Cancer
Omega-3 fatty acids, found in fish, have been shown to help reduce the risk of certain types of cancer, such as colorectal, breast, and prostate cancer.
Improved Immune Function
Fish is a great source of Vitamin D, which is essential for immune function and skin and coat health.
Our Complete Raw Meal formulas are designed to achieve the perfect balance of protein and essential fatty acids that promote better digestion.
