FISH IN PET FOOD
Pets receive easily digestible proteins, with favourable combinations of amino acids, from fish.
The oil present in fish is unique, as it contains large amounts of Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, which are essential for cats. The fatty acids present in fish have a good effect on the health of cats and dogs, as they can combat skin disorders, prevent kidney failure and reduce the risk of cancer.
Fish contains calcium and phosphorus in the proportions required for skeleton development.
Fish is rich in trace elements such as organic iodine and selenium. Iodine is necessary for normal thyroid function, and selenium provides protection against the formation of free radicals, thereby combating diseases such as cancer.
