Have you ever considered adding fish to your dog’s diet? If not, maybe it’s time to consider the many benefits of feeding a dog food with fish in it.
Fish is a Novel Protein for Dogs with Food Allergies or Sensitivities
Many pets have not had exposure to white fish, making it a novel protein. Fish-based dog food may be recommended for dogs that don’t tolerate common proteins, like chicken or beef. Because white fish is naturally low in saturated fats, this diet is easy to digest, taking some pressure off the pancreas, gallbladder, and liver. With the lowest fat content in our lineup, it’s a good choice for pets affected by pancreatitis or other digestion disorders.
We have incorporated fenugreek in this recipe. Fenugreek is a vitamin-packed herb that has long been used in eastern medicine for its anti-inflammatory properties. It has also been used as an appetite stimulant, so the white fish formula will likely appeal to picky or sensitive eaters.
White Fish Dog Food Provides a Diverse Nutrient Profile
Steve’s Real Food is excited to introduce our newest protein - white fish! This new formula is made from pacific cod, pollock, rockfish, and salmon - this will surely get your pet excited for dinner! A rotational diet has many benefits including reducing the potential for developing food sensitivities, ensuring a diverse nutrient profile in your pet’s diet, and, of course, keeping mealtime exciting for your pet!
Benefits of a rotational diet:
- Reducing food sensitivities and allergies
- Different proteins provide different nutrients
- Flexibility to switch things up as needed
- Keeping mealtime fun
Fish is Packed with Healthy Fatty Acids
Omega-3s are essential fatty acids that the diet must provide and cannot be synthesized by the body without proper supplementation. Heavily-processed dry foods are typically lacking in healthy fats and are highly inflammatory. Our white fish diet is rich in omega-3s thanks to the variety of white fish and the New Zealand Green-Lipped Mussels, making this formula excellent for skin and coat support. It may help bring relief from dry, flaky skin and itchiness.
Additional Benefits of Omega-3s:
- High in EPA and DHA
- Support the brain and immune system
- Helps to prevent and relieve the effects of arthritis
- Supports heart health

White Fish for Senior Dogs
An older pet on a raw diet barely acts like a “senior” to begin with! That’s one of the amazing benefits of the raw lifestyle. However, a day may come when your pet starts to slow down. While each Steve’s formula meets the requirements of all life stages, as our pets age we will want to incorporate foods that complement their retirement-style way of life into their diet. During this period, some dogs may eventually need a diet lower in fat. Every senior can benefit from extra support for their aging joints and cognitive function. When it’s time to start looking for a senior dog food that will provide those benefits, our White Fish formula is a great addition to their rotation. With the lowest fat content in our lineup, it can also be a good choice for pets affected by pancreatitis or other digestion disorders.
Benefits of our White Fish formula:
- Exciting new protein for your pets to enjoy
- Low in sodium
- High in Omega-3 for joint support, heart health, skin and coat, and cognitive function
- Low in fat
- Easy to Digest
- A great option for food sensitivities and allergies
- Fantastic for senior pets
