Review: There’s nothing fishy about these treats

Finding healthy yet tasty treats can be very tricky for pet parents and many are  attempting to dehydrate their own treats at home.

However, after trying to dehydrate some tripe I soon learned that this isn’t for the fainthearted, or anyone who may have guests arriving. The smell was pungent to put it lightly!

I was therefore really excited to get my hands on some of the new dried capelin treats from Seatreats. After being lucky enough to review some of the fab treats from this sustainable pet food company in the past, I knew I was in for a treat!

Capelin are commonly used to make fish meals, and feed on plankton and crustaceans. Being lower on the food chain reduces the risk of the bio-accumulation of toxins that can occur with many larger predatory fish such as swordfish.

The treats are just air dried fish, nothing more, nothing less. Being so minimally processed it is fantastic to know there are no hidden ingredients, which is especially important for anyone with an allergic dog or a one that is on a limited ingredient diet.

Because these treats are so fresh, they do have a strong odour so I would recommend they are kept in a plastic container. However, this string odour makes them super high value for many dogs which means they are invaluable for many training scenarios. They also contain healthy the omega 3 oils I mentioned in my earlier post!

So how do they taste?

Today’s taste tester was the gorgeous Molly the Labrador. Molly suffers from atopic dermatitis and therefore her parents have to be extremely cautious with the food and treats she is given.IMG_0409


Before I had opened the bag Molly was bursting with excitement at the smell of these fishy treats and as you can see, she loved every bite!
