Why is salmon a valuable fat and protein source for your dog?

Salmon as a source of fat

Fat is your dogs most important source of energy. Fat provides your dog with the essential omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, that are necessary for maintaining your dogs bodily functions.

Omega-3 fatty acids are found in fatty sea fish such as mackerel, herring, eel and salmon. When compared to other fish, salmon has the highest content of omega-3 fatty acids. The health enhancing effects of omega-3 are mainly due to the fatty acids known as EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). These two fatty acids are found only in fish and nowhere else in nature. In addition, salmon also contains omega-6 fatty acids.

Using salmon as a source of fat allows us to transfer the essential omega-3 and -6 fatty acids found in salmon to our feed. The feed's high Omega-6 content has a positive effect on the dogs skin and coat, and helps to counteract coat problems, such as allergies, dry skin, shedding, itching, dandruff, and dull coat. Furthermore, the feeds high Omega-3 content helps to strengthen the immune system, to increase fertility and to reduce the risk of cardiovascular and joint disease.

Salmon as a source of protein

When the feed is digested, its proteins are broken down into amino acids. These amino acids are then absorbed into the bloodstream and distributed throughout the body. These amino acids help to build, maintain, and repair tissue, muscles, bones, and the dogs internal organs.

The dog is able to create most of the amino acids it needs by itself. However, it is important to make sure that the dog receives the amino acids it cannot create by itself from it's diet. There are 10 essential amino acids that the dog is unable to create by itself. If just 1 essential amino acid is missing, the remaining 9 will be burned as energy, and will not be used for building, maintaining or repairing the body. As a result of this, the dogs muscles may stop growing, among other things. Proteins from salmon contain all of the essential amino acids. Using salmon as a source of protein ensures that the dog receives all the amino acids it needs.

Proteins from salmon have a very high biological value. The biological value is a measure of how large a part of the proteins the dog is able to exploit. Salmon proteins have a biological value of 94%, which is very high compared to other animal protein sources (see The Protein Scale). This results in an easily digestible feed with a very high utilization rate, the result of which is a lower feed consumption, and a reduced amount of faeces.

Salmon alone is, of course, not enough

This is why our feed is composed of the best possible quality controlled raw materials. It is also correctly balanced with regard to nutrients, vitamins and minerals.

Choline Chloride and lecithin added to the feed, both of which help to increase the dogs metabolism. As a result, the dog will need less feed to receive the same amount of energy, and will eat less.

Extruded Feed

During extrusion, the ingredients are heated up at high pressure to more than130 degrees centigrade. This kills off all bacteria, and causes the starch in the cereal products to react with water, producing easily digestible carbohydrate. In other words, the starch from the cereal products is made available to the dog, which results in increased absorption and better feed utilization.

What antioxidants are used?

Only naturally occurring and approved food grade antioxidants are used, including Vitamin-E (from strong natural tocopherol extracts), Vitamin-C (6-Palmityl-L-ascorbic acid) and rosemary and olive extract.

The dog's body creates so called “free radicals”, that cause the dog's cells to change. These “free radicals” may weaken the immune system, and even cause cancer. Natural Antioxidants neutralize these “free radicals”, and improve the dogs health.
