Tasty Recipes: Mackerel And Veggies Topper | Dogalize
Eating seafood is good for dogs, since it is a source of Omega-3 and other fatty acids that are very important for their health. Mackerel can provide these substances when fed as part of your dog’s diet two or three times a week.
Whenever possible, purchase mackerel without additives. Mackerel packed in water is preferable over mackerel packed in oil, because your dog will already be receiving enough fats in his diet.
This recipe made of meckerel and vegetables is easy to prepare and beneficial for your dog. With a wide variety of vegetables, fruits, and fish rich in omega-3 fatty acids, this topper is a must for any dog. Don’t worry about those tiny mackerel bones; they’re really soft and will break down even further in the food processor.
