Salmon meal is an integral part of several of our new Precise Holistic Complete foods. Not only is it an excellent source of protein but it also has the added benefit of supplying a natural form of omega-3 fatty acids to the food.

There is a myth about salmon being harmful to dogs and cats that should be clarified.  The truth is raw salmon can cause a condition known as salmon poisoning in dogs.  It does not affect cats at all.  The disease is actually caused by a bacteria in the salmon.  Cooking the salmon destroys the bacteria making salmon meal completely safe and healthy for both dogs and cats.

    My concern is the source of the salmon (farm raised or wild). My understanding is that fish caught at sea can be preserved with ethoxoqen. we are staring ro question the source in dog foods because of the number of missed breedings, small littwrs, birthweights. There appears to be a coronation as most dog foods have wild caught fish meal.

      Karen, thank you for you question. Our salmon is caught off the coast of Norway and none of our foods contain ethoxyquin. I hope this helps. The Precise Team
