Herrings are dog-friendly!
An oily fish particularly beneficial to both human beings and to dogs, the herring has been a staple food for at least 5,000 years.
So important was the herring in the Middle Ages that it’s said they prompted the founding of Amsterdam, Copenhagen and Great Yarmouth.
The fish that most of us refer to as the herring today is in fact the Atlantic herring.
Benefits of Herrings:
Herrings are an excellent source of vitamin B12 and a very rich source of long-chain, omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA. They are also a good source of vitamins B3, B6 and D and phosphorus.
An excellent source of easily digestible, low-fat protein rich in omega-3 fatty acids, herring can help maintain a dog’s healthy skin and coat, decrease inflammation and benefit the immune system.
If you’re going to feed your dog fish regularly, which you should, herrings certainly rank amongst the best fish you can buy for your canine friend.
Preparing & Cooking:
Remove any bones as necessary, then cook, steam or grill your dog’s herrings before serving.
