Dogs love eating freeze-dried minnows.

Whether you’re welcoming a new best fur-iend into your home or simply rewarding your trusty pal, an often overlooked meat to feed your dog or cat is fish. Fish is the perfect protein source to add to your pet’s diet, thanks to all the good stuff in it; good stuff like immune-boosting amino acids and Omega 3s, which have many positive effects on our pet’s health and wellness. Both dogs and cats will benefit from a diet or supplements with fish oil, so Vital Essentials has created a variety of ways to incorporate fish into your fur-iends diet.
