Sardines for Dogs
They might be small in stature, but sardines are big on flavour, big on benefits such as omega-3s, vitamins and minerals and arguably the best oily fish on the planet for our canine friends.

Prepare, cook & serve
Sardines are dog-friendly!
Small but perfectly formed, sardines are packed full of omega-3 fatty acids, DHA and EPA which, amongst other things, help prevent cancer, reduce inflammation, and help support a strong immune system. They also help maintain brain function, maintain a healthy heart, enhance a dog’s coat and skin, and can even help prevent or at least reduce the symptoms of arthritis.
Benefits of Sardines:
High in vitamins B3, B12 and D along with selenium, phosphorus, calcium, iodine, copper and choline, sardines are arguably the absolutely best fish to feed our dogs.
The sardine’s diminutive stature has further benefits for our dogs. They live shorter lives so ingest far less mercury than larger fish making them a far healthier option than most other fish in the sea. And that goes for our dogs as well as us humans.
Preparing & Cooking:
Because sardines are small, soft-boned fish, your dog can safely manage sardine bones except for the large backbone which you should remove and disgard. The rest can be fed to your dog lightly cooked or raw.

It is perfectly okay to used tinned sardines, ideally in spring water, but oil will do fine as well, but definitely no sardines in tomato sauce.
Follow recipe guidelines to ensure moderation and to avoid digestive issues.
