Does your fish skin contain collagen?
Fish skins are rich in collagen and are popular as a raw material for skin care products and vegetarian gelatin. Since fish skins are between four and seven percent of the fish’s total weight, they are an endless, sustainable commodity.
Collagen is a key component in both vertebrates and invertebrates and is generally found in the tendons, bones, cartilage and connective tissue of mammals. Past studies have shown that collagen represents about 60% of the animal’s body protein and 30% of all the organic matter of the source animal.
In dried fish skins, collagen is in its original, untreated form.
Chinese practitioners have believed for thousands of years that when skin is damaged, the cure is to consume skin. Popular science has supported that finding in recent decades, as collagen has become more and more popular as a proven health product. Collagen has been shown to strengthen skin, through improving its hydration and elastic properties. Natural wound repair and joint relief are both aided by collagen properties. Collagen in the muscles keeps them strong while less acne is another proven benefit.
As mammals age, the body no longer produces collagen as efficiently. A daily collagen supplement is advised.
It is clear that people and pets need collagen daily. For dogs, there is no richer source than dehydrated, scale reduced fish skins.
Are your treats good for my pet’s teeth?
Animals need clean teeth - just like people. Simply by giving your pet high quality chews helps keep their teeth and gums healthy and strong. That’s what many of our treats and chews are specially designed to do - to promote dental hygiene, encourage healthy chewing, and help clean teeth and gums.
We advise matching chews to your pet’s size, preference, and personality. For example, if your pet is an aggressive chewer, it may need a product that is firmer and tougher to chew.
That said, keep in mind that in addition to chews, your pet’s teeth and gums could probably use a regular brushing, as well as a trip to the vet for a proper checkup and cleaning.
How much is it healthy to treat my pet?
The amount of treats your pet can have on a daily basis depends on what kind of pet it is, how old it is, and what size it is - these all factor into its dietary requirements. You should ask your veterinarian to weigh in on this, with advice tailored to your pet.
The amount you treat your pet also depends on the size of the treat and the ingredients - the amount of protein and fiber content - in the treat itself. You don’t want to overfeed your pet. To that end, smaller treats can usually be given multiple times per day. Larger treats and bully sticks should more likely be limited to one per day.
Tickled pet offers a line of single-ingredient treats, chews, and toppers so simple you don’t have to look twice at the label. This family brand is all about giving your pets the best. Giving you more time to spend with family and less worrying about what’s in your dog treats.
