There are pet owners who have second thoughts about choosing fish as the primary protein source for dogs. Unbeknownst to them, a fatty fish like salmon offers many nutritional benefits for both canines and felines.

A great source of protein, salmon is rich in Vitamins B6, B12, and D, has Omega-3, and is extremely low in saturated fat – making it a good alternative for dogs and cats allergic to proteins like beef, chicken, and lamb.

But before you switch to salmon-based pet food, make sure to check the labels first. Make sure your chosen salmon-based pet food is the following:

  • A complete and balanced formula that complies with the nutritional levels set by the Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) Dog & Cat Food Nutrient Profiles for all life stages
  • Has nutrients, vitamins, and minerals that strengthens and supports your pet’s immune system
  • Uses high quality salmon from a clean and trusted source

‘Best Choice’ New Zealand king salmon for your pets

A high-quality salmon has high-quality nutrients too!

That’s why Addiction Foods only uses New Zealand King Salmon – rated as “Best Choice” by the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch®, an organization dedicated to ensuring sustainable and safe ocean-farming practices – in every pack of Salmon Bleu.

The New Zealand king salmon in Salmon Bleu’s recipe is naturally-rich in Omega-3 fatty acid that lists myriad of benefits:

  • Helps fight skin allergies for healthier skin and coat,
  • Improves bone and joint health,
  • Lowers blood pressure and cholesterol levels, and
  • Enhances eye and cognitive health.

Enriched with taurine and B-vitamins

Each bag of Salmon Bleu is enriched with taurine, a type of amino acid that helps protect heart tissues and prevent obesity.

Cats need taurine and the only way they can get it is from their diet. Dogs, on the other hand, can synthesize taurine in their body.

However, some may need supplementation because taurine can help fight Dilated Cardiomyopathy in dogs.

Aside from taurine, Salmon Bleu’s recipe is also rich in B-Vitamins which are essential for cell metabolism, proper growth, development, and energy production.

Look for the following B-Vitamins in your pet food:

  • Vitamin B1 (Thiamine Mononitrate) for metabolism of fats and carbohydrates to produce energy
  • Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin) for growth and muscle development
  • Vitamin B3 (Niacin) for proper function of enzymes
  • Vitamin B5 (Calcium Pantothenate) for energy production and synthesis of sex hormones
  • Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine Hydrochloride) for proper utilization of protein
  • Vitamin B9 (Folic Acid) for red blood cell production in the bone marrow
  • Vitamin B12 (Cobalamin) for healthy nervous system and immune system

Take note that B-Vitamins are water soluble, meaning they are not stored in the body and are flushed out through urine.

Because of this, dogs and cats are at risk of Vitamin B deficiency and will need to replenish B-Vitamins through diet or supplementation.

Here’s what pet owners say about Salmon Bleu

“Very pleased with this dog food. My dogs have very sensitive stomachs, and many food allergies. They have been getting sick a lot lately. After some research, I discovered the supposed-to-be-healthy dog food I was feeding them changed. My dogs absolutely love the Addiction dog food and they are no longer getting mysteriously sick. I received a list of dog food from my groomer that were researched to be healthy and trustworthy. Addiction was on the list. I will be ordering this dog food again! I found a keeper!” – FacciaBella 

“Addiction is the right name! My cat loves this food and she is a picky eater! The first time I gave it to her was the first time in several years she got excited about the food in her bowl! I love that she enjoys it AND it’s good for her!” – Mander
