Salmon oil, derived from the fatty tissues of salmon, is a popular dietary supplement for dogs due to its rich source of omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids, particularly EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), offer several health benefits for dogs. Here are some of the potential benefits of salmon oil for dogs:

  1. Healthy skin and coat: Omega-3 fatty acids are known to promote healthy skin and a glossy, soft coat in dogs. They can help reduce itching, dryness and flakiness associated with skin allergies or conditions.
  2. Joint health: Salmon oil’s anti-inflammatory properties can be beneficial for dogs with arthritis or joint issues. Omega-3s may help reduce inflammation and alleviate discomfort, improving mobility and joint function.
  3. Heart health: Omega-3 fatty acids are associated with cardiovascular benefits. They may help support a healthy heart and circulatory system in dogs.
  4. Brain development and cognitive health: DHA, one of the omega-3 fatty acids in salmon oil, is essential for brain development in puppies and may support cognitive function in dogs, especially senior dogs.
  5. Immune system support: Omega-3s can help support a dog’s immune system, making them better equipped to fight off infections and diseases.
  6. Allergy relief: The anti-inflammatory effects of omega-3s can help reduce the severity of allergic reactions in dogs and provide some relief from allergy-related symptoms.
  7. Eye health: DHA is also crucial for maintaining healthy vision and eye function in dogs.

(They loved it.)

Badger was completely unphased by meal times before I switched him over to Wild Pack from kibble. He gets so excited now when he sees the tub, that I've had to get him a slow feeder bowl so he doesn't inhale it all in two minutes!!

Fantastic raw dog food! Great consistency full of all the goodness your dog needs. Handy packaging and most importantly, Freddie loves it! I would highly recommend Wild Pack to anyone who really cares for their dogs health and well being!

Tarka has always eaten raw but she's usually quite fussy on flavours. All six Wild Pack recipes were a big hit with her though. And as the one who dishes it out, I love it too. Far less smelly and much easier to serve than any of the other brands we've tried!

Better sh*t

Smaller, less smelly and more pick-uppable poos. That’s all down to improved digestion and gut health, more natural fibre sources, fewer carbohydrates and no nasty additives or preservatives.

Glossier coats

Dogs on raw diets get healthy fatty acids, improved nutrient absorption, increased hydration (due to higher moisture content) and better protein quality. So their coats are utterly fabulous.

Better digestion

Raw dog food is so much kinder to your dog’s insides. With no additives, no preservatives and fewer carbohydrates, they’ll get improved digestion and fewer tummy troubles.

Stronger immune system

When we eat sh*t and don’t get enough nutrients, we get ill. It's just the same for dogs. But when they eat raw like they’re supposed to, it’s the foundation of good health.

Bags of energy

Commercial kibble causes crashes and spikes of energy. But raw food is lighter on carbohydrates and has whole meat, bones and organs which release energy steadily, so they’re full of beans all day long.
