Cook & feed your dog Pollock
Pollock is a good source of lean, healthy protein, and an ideal occasional protein source if your dog is in need of losing weight. If pollock is not available, then cod, haddock or coley will do just as well.

Pollock is dog-friendly!
Native to the North Atlantic and traditionally a cheaper alternative to cod or haddock, you’re likely to find pollock labelled as either Alaska pollock or Atlantic pollock in British supermarkets.
Said by author and marine environmentalist Charles Clover to be the last remaining palatable source of fish in the entire world, Alaska Pollock has the milder flavour of the two.
Benefits of Pollock:
While perhaps not as beneficial for dogs as an oily fish such as mackerel or sardines, pollock is still a valuable source of lean, healthy protein.
It’s ideal if, for example, your dog could do with shedding a few pounds as it’s low in calories and low in saturated fats. It’s also easier to digest than the likes of red meat, particularly for a more senior dog whose digestive system has started to slow down. Because it’s so gentle on the tummy, it’s also ideal for any dog suffering from the likes of irritable bowel syndrome or any other digestive issue.
It also has natural anti-inflammatory properties making it ideal for any dog who suffers with joint related issues or from any skin-related problems.
So don’t deprive your dog of pollock just because it’s not as fashionable as some other fish right now. Our dogs have certainly never turned their noses up at it. And trust me, our two know a thing or two about good food!
Preparing & Cooking:
Remove any bones as necessary, then cook, steam or grill your dog’s pollock before serving.
