Tuna is dog-friendly!
One of the world’s most commercially valuable fish, the tuna (or tunny) is a member of the mackerel family.
The term ‘tuna’ actually comprises a number of fish – typically in UK supermarkets you’ll find skipjack tuna, yellowfin tuna, albacore tuna and, sadly on occasions, the critically endangered bluefin tuna.
Mostly though, you’ll find skipjack tuna, considered the most sustainable, especially if pole and line caught.
Benefits of Tuna:
Tuna is high-quality, low-fat, high-energy, easily digestible protein rich in omega-3 fatty acids. Because it’s gentle on the digestive system, tuna is ideal for older dogs whose digestive system has started to slow down, and for dogs who have difficulty processing more traditional meat-based protein sources as happens on occasions.
Tuna has anti-inflammatory properties making it ideal for any dog suffering from joint related issues such as arthritis. It’s also good for a dog’s skin and coat, helps lower blood pressure and helps to maintain a healthy heart. It also helps strenthen your dog’s bones and protect against cancer.
And if that weren’t enough, dogs love it!
Preparing & Cooking:
Remove any bones as necessary, then cook, steam or grill your dog’s tuna before serving. (Tinned tuna can be served straight from the tin).
Serve straight from the tin as a treat or to add flavour and goodness to commercial dog food.
See recipe suggestion below or visit recipes for further suggestions.
Never feed your dog raw tuna as there is a risk of contamination from harmful bacteria. Tinned tuna however is perfectly safe and can be fed straight from the tin. Tinned tuna in spring water is best, but providing your dog does not have a weight problem, tuna in oil will be fine.
Follow recipe guidelines to ensure moderation and to avoid digestive issues.
