Review Summary:

This recipe offers excellent variety of fish meats, which notably offers protein with all essential amino acids and Omega-6 fatty acid amongst other nutrients too. The other highlight is the minerals are “protienate” for easier body absorption. More variety of vegetables would be wishful thinking to help make it more complete, but it is still an overall very good recipe.


  • Multiple good fish meat sources
  • Chelated / Proteinate minerals for better body absorption
  • Editor’s Taste Rating


    This top fish ingredients really come through with taste, especially the sardines, which dominates the flavor.  The flavor is clean and good; no nasty fish taste to it. It compares to a can of sardines in oil, but with a smooth rewarding texture. If you dog likes fish, then this one could be a potential winner for palatability.
