How is fish beneficial to the health of your dog?

1. Great for the heart

It’s no coincidence that fish-eating Inuit populations in the Arctic have low levels of heart disease; seafood is low in saturated fat and high in omega-3, (which can both) protect the heart from disease and lower the amount of cholesterol in the blood. One study has even suggested that an extra portion of fish every week can cut risk of heart disease in half.

2. Clearing the vessels

Eating fish can improve circulation. The EPA and DHA – omega-3 oils – in seafood can save the body from having to produce eicosanoids, a hormone-like substance which can make dogs more likely to suffer from blood clots and inflammation.

3. Joint benefits

Eating fish as a regular part of a balanced diet has been shown to ease the symptoms and prevent different types of arthritis in dogs.

4. Improves eyesight

Eating oil-rich fish regularly can help to keep the eyes bright and healthy. Fish also contain retinol, a form of vitamin A which boosts night vision.

5. Essential nutrients

Seafood provides the body with many essential nutrients which keep dogs running smoothly. These nutrients include iodine, selenium, zinc and potassium. Iodine is important for the thyroid gland, and selenium makes enzymes which can help to protect against cancer. Fish are also excellent sources of many vitamins, including vitamins A and D.

6. Good for the lungs

A number of studies have indicated that fish help to protect the lungs.

7. Great for the Skin

Not only does omega-3 help to protect the skin from the harmful effects of the UV damage, but eating lots of fish can also help with the symptoms of skin conditions and itchiness. Fish is also a great source of protein, which is an essential ingredient of collagen, a substance which keeps the skin firm and flexible.

9. Good for down below

Evidence suggests that a diet rich in fish oils can help to protect against serious inflammatory bowel diseases. Eating a diet plentiful in fish oils can give dogs firmer stools.

10. Boosts brainpower

Fish can help to boost a dog’s brain power and development particularly in the puppy stage.

2. Protect Their Paws

Hot pavement can severely burn your dog’s paws. Asphalt and other surfaces can reach 65°C in the summer, causing blisters and severe pain. Test the surface with the back of your hand; if you can’t hold it for seven seconds, it’s too hot for your dog. Use dog shoes, socks, or peel-and-stick pads to protect their paws during walks.

3. Keep Them Groomed

Regular grooming is essential during hot weather. Brushing helps remove dead hair, reducing the thickness of your dog’s coat and aiding in temperature regulation. Contrary to popular belief, shaving your dog’s coat is not advisable as it can expose their skin to sunburn and other risks. Instead, trim their hair to help them stay cool.

4. Provide Frozen Treats

Frozen treats can help cool your dog down and keep them happy. Boodles treats and chews are perfect to be frozen. 

Try filling a cows hoof with your dogs food and freezing it. Or simply popping any of our hard chews into the freezer so your dog can happily chew away.

Ensure thawed and uneaten chews are discarded.

5. Limit Walks to Early Mornings and Evenings

Exercise is vital for your dog’s health, but in hot weather, limit walks to early morning or late evening when temperatures are cooler. This practice reduces the risk of heat stroke and paw burns. Dogs are susceptible to heat-related conditions regardless of their breed or age, so always prioritise their safety during walks.

6. Protect Their Skin from the Sun

Dogs love being outdoors, but they need protection from harmful UV rays. Use dog-specific sunscreen to shield their skin. Avoid products with zinc oxide or para-aminobenzoic acid, which can be toxic if ingested. Waterproof, odorless sunscreen with SPF 30 is ideal. Alternatively, UV-blocking sun shirts can provide effective protection.

Conclusion

By taking these proactive steps, you can help ensure your dog stays safe and healthy during the summer months. Always monitor your dog for signs of overheating and take immediate action if needed. With proper care, your dog can enjoy the summer season comfortably and safely.
