Give the gift of improved health this year– one of the most important things you can give a shelter dog in Romania. We want every one of the dogs in our shelters in Romania to have a very Merry Fishmas, and you can help us to achieve this.
Fish is one of the best sources of protein we can give our dogs, for several reasons. Fish is a great source of protein that will not overload a shelter dog’s delicate digestive system in the same way that some protein rich meats can. Fish in the diet also imparts vital vitamins and healthy properties without risk of weight gain or protein overload. Many of our dogs suffer from sore, flaky, damaged, or itchy skin, which the bioavailable essential fatty acids in fish can help to heal. The omega-3 fats found in fish oil are natural anti-inflammatories, which not only promote joint and connective tissue health but also calm the intensity of reactions to many common allergy triggers. Our dogs often suffer from weakened immune systems and fish in the diet aids speedy recovery to optimal health.
We can give our dogs supplements in the form of fish oil as well as fish based foods. Tins of sardines form a nutrient dense snack which are easy for our rescuers to store and dispense. We have added a selection of fish products to our Amazon wishlist, but you can also select your own fish based goodies yourself should you prefer. You can also donate to enable us to purchase items to ensure that every one of our dogs has a very Merry Fishmas in 2017.
