Traditionally a cheaper alternative to cod, haddock is one of the most popular fish sold by British fish and chip shops. Unknown to many perhaps is the fact that hadddock is the most popular choice of fish for a fish supper in Scotland. But what about haddock for dogs you may well ask?
Nutrients in haddock
Haddock is a good source of vitamins B3 and B6, and of iron, magnesium and phosphorus.
Benefits of haddock for dogs
While not necessarily as good for dogs as an oily fish such as mackerel or sardines, haddock is nonetheless a good source of healthy protein. It’s a particularly ideal occasional protein source if your dog is in need of losing weight because it has less calories than oily fish.
Preparing, cooking & serving
Remove any bones as necessary, then cook, steam or grill your dog’s haddock before serving. Never feed your dog raw haddock as there is a risk of contamination from harmful bacteria.
