Is Dried Fish Good for Dogs?

Dried fish makes a healthy daily treat for your dog. Fish such as Mackerel, Sardines, and Salmon are high in naturally occurring Omega-3 essential oils which provide loads of benefits for your dog.

A daily fish treat for your dog can boost immune strength, improve dry and flaky skin, reduce skin irritation, make that coat sleek and shiny, and even support brain development.

Specifically, which fish treats can your dog eat? Here we look at seven different options from dehydrated fish skins to yummy whole sardines, along with the benefits of each!

Whole Sardines

Our most popular dried fish treats are our Whole Sardines for Dogs.

Containing the entire fish including all the tasty insides, bones, brains, and everything else these Whole Sardines are packed with essential nutrients and loads of good Omega-3 oils.

Dog owners generally prefer offering these Whole Sardines to their dogs as an addition to dinner for a healthy daily nutrient boost.

Hardy Heads

These are our smaller whole fishies, often called the little fishies. Hardy Heads are a perfect bite sized treat making them suitable for training as single quick chomping pieces.

Boost your dogs daily intake of Omega-3s, Vitamin D and B12 while offering them an irresistibly tasty whole food treat.

Queenfish Bites

Think of chewy Beef or Kangaroo Jerky but in smaller bite sized pieces and with the deliciously tasty fishy smell that dogs just go bonkers for.

Queenfish Bites are another great training treats option, and guaranteed to attract more than just your dog in the park. Keep the pack hidden from the other dogs, or you may be leaving with an empty treats bag!

Salmon Skin

If you’re looking for a high dose of those super food Omega-3 oils then look no further than Salmon Skin. These crunchy sheets of dehydrated fish skin are literally oozing healthy Omega 3 oil to the point where you can see them dripping down the pack.

We prefer offering Salmon Skin strips to our dog’s whole as a doggo friendly crunchy wafer, but they can easily be cut up with scissors into smaller pieces and offered as delicious training treats.

Mackerel and Cartilage

Wrap nutrient rich Mackerel skin around a chewy piece of Shark Cartilage and what do you get? A longer chewing, super healthy, teeth cleansing natural treat. What more could you want?

Even better, our Mackerel and Cartilage Chews come in super sized 200g and 400g packs.

Forget horribly artificial, tasteless, bleached raw hide from your supermarket. Mackerel provides countless health benefits for your dog, and they’re total Aussie sourced and made!

If you prefer to go for a softer treat without the cartilage, then your dog may also enjoy our Mackerel Chews which are purely tasty Mackerel Skin twisted for extra chew.

Green Lipped Mussels

Take all the health benefits of our Sardines and Mackerel treats and double them.

Green Lipped Mussels are high in Omega-3. Zinc, Magnesium, Glucosamine, Chondroitin, Vitamin B12, Vitamin D, and amino acids. These little crunchy treats are a total superfood for dogs.

Queenfish Tail

Dried fish treats for dogs that lasts for more than half an hour of chomping? Yes please!

Queenfish Tails are chunky, chewy, longer lasting, nutrient rich treats that will also help scrub your dogs teeth clean.

We’ve known these treats to last from around 20 minutes for larger dogs like Huskies and German Shepherds, to over two hours for smaller to medium dogs like Beagles and Staffies.

Which dried fish treats should your dog have?

We first suggest considering whether you want longer chewing treats for added teeth cleaning benefits, smaller bite sized pieces for effective training, or an all rounder for a tasty meal addition.

Is Salted Dried Fish Good for Dogs?

No, do not give your dog any salted dried fish. Dogs cannot process high levels of salt. Too much can lead to dehydrating, high blood pressure and salt toxicosis with effects such as vomiting and diarrhea.

Oh My Paws treats do not contain any added salt whatsoever, so you can rest assured your dog is getting only the best quality treats that are beneficial to their health.
