Only human quality, WHOLE haddock (not just the skin) is used in our Snack Bars and & Neptune’s Larder.

Why Choose Quay Dog Fish Products

It goes without saying that we want to give the best to our furry friends and choosing the right treats is very important to keep your pet healthy and happy. Things to look out for are:

  • Number of Ingredients – Snack Bars contain only ONE natural ingredient – human quality, whole haddock (not factory left overs, or mechanically rendered) . Neptune’s Larder contains human quality haddock and hand harvested seaweed. The Maxi Mix Ups contain fish skins (haddock or cod) – these are from hand filleted fish and are then individually sorted and shaped.
  • Ingredient Source – a product might be manufactured in one country but the ingredients sourced from another whose quality control might not be up to UK standards. Quay Dog is licenced by DAERA (Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs) and as such our ingredients are fully traceable and products are regularly externally tested. Our ingredients come from the local area – the fish landed in Kilkeel Harbour or the seaweed harvested along our coastline and the fish is from sustainable fish stocks.
  • Ingredient Quality and the Type of Ingredient – Just because the package says it’s natural it doesn’t mean that it will be suitable for your pet – you need to look closely at the ingredient list – Quay Dog Products use quality ingredients – fish is hypoallergenic and easily digested, low calorie and a source of Omega 3 & 6 and rich in protein

Benefits of Dried Fish Treats

  • Wholesome nutrition – When choosing treats for our furry friends, we want the same things that we would prefer in our own food. Like ourselves, our pets are able to obtain the best nutrition from minimally processed, quality ingredients. Fish is a super natural protein source with no artificial additives and drying retains more nutrients.
  • Hypoallergenic – If your pet has ever suffered from a food allergy, you will know how miserable that makes life for your furry friend. Fish based treats are a much safer option as it reduces the chances of triggering any food allergies. Our treats are grain free – various grains are common triggers for allergies.
  • Easily Digested – Fish treats will also be gentle on your pet’s stomach, thus reducing inflammation and lessening the chances of a reaction.
  • Low Calorie – Keeping your dog in shape by cutting out on treats can be difficult for your furry friends – we all love to spoil them. Using natural Quay Dog Fish Treats – means that you can spoil them without feeling guilty. Our treats are loved by dogs and cats yet are low in calorie compare to many other treats.
  • Source of Omega 3 & 6 – Whole fish (which is what our Snack Bars and Neptune’s Larder are made from) is a good addition to the diet. Not only is it high in omega-3 fats, it also contains a lot of important minerals and trace minerals. Omega 3 and 6 are essential fatty acids, evidence suggests that omega 3 has a positive effect on the immune system, especially in older animals, and helps to lessen the symptoms of inflammatory diseases such as arthritis and Omega 6 aids skin health.
  • Better Dental Health – Quay Dog Natural treats do not contain artificial sweeteners or other harmful chemicals that can be detrimental to your pet’s oral health. Instead, they can help maintain healthy teeth and gums.
  • Tasty – dogs and cats love Quay Dog Treats – the aroma make Fish Snacks are a true high value training treat.
