We selected Evergreen Packaging because they are committed to developing and supplying sustainable paper and packaging solutions. Not only are they recyclable, there is no need to transfer product into another container .
Ingredients – Fish stock, and ground fermented sardines.
Daily serving size – Up to 20 lbs – 2 ounces, 20 lbs to 50 lbs - 4 ounces, 50 lbs and over - 6 ounces
Once thawed good for 14 days in refrigerator
Purpose – Superfood for dogs and cats; rich in bio available vitamins, minerals, protein, essential amino
acids, and gelatin.
Joint repair or prevention of joint disease (much better than supplements because whole food form)
Contains glucosaminoglycans (GAGs), a major component of joint cartilage – that are absorbed
intact during digestion and stimulate cells called fibroblast which lay down collegen in joints,
tendons, ligaments and arteries. They are highly polar and attract water, lubricate and act as a
Examples of GAGs in fermented fish stock are glucosamine, chondroitin sulfate, hyaluronic acid,
glucuronic acid, iduronic acid, galactose, and galactosamine
High in anti-inflammatory amino acids arginine, glycine and proline
Excellent source of Iodine
Contains thyroid hormone and other substances that nourish the thyroid (this is due to including
fish heads, which contains the thyroid, when making the stock)
Protein sparing - Fermented Fish Stock reduces the bodies need for protein by up to 50%
(pretty amazing). Adding to diet of dogs fed low protein diet for kidney disease will help
prevent detrimental side effects of low protein.
Protein sparing also can aid in anemia, diabetes and cancer
Arginine- Fermented fish stock contains high amounts. This is an amino acid synthesized by the
kidney and pets with kidney disease do not synthesize enough.
Arginine is required to metabolize protein waste (needed to clean the blood)
Arginine reduces blood pressure reducing stress on the kidneys
Chinese Medicine Theory – bone tissue relates to the kidneys. So given the theory like supports
like consuming bone tissue support the kidneys and therefore the bones including the teeth.
From within the traditional Chinese paradigm stock nourishes kidney, supports vital essence
(chi), and builds blood.
Adrenal support is included in the kidneys
Theory that the nutritional matrix in stock and patch up holes in the kidneys
Digestive aid and digestion disorder support
Contains Gelatin – beneficial for lining the digestive system to aid in the healing of leaky gut
syndrome and colitis.
Research has shown bone based stock to be an excellent aid for digestion and assimilation of
cooked food. Gotthoffer, NkR, Gelatin in Nutrition and Medicine, 1945, Grayslake Gelatin Co, Greyslake,
Hydrophilic (meaning attracts water) attracts and holds the digestive juices, stimulating appetite
and better digestion of nutrients in food. Perfect for topping kibble (kibble is hydrophobic
meaning repels water making it difficult to digest.)
High in glycine (an essential amino acid) which helps regulate the making of bile salts and
secretion of gastric juices
Stock contains exact proportion of minerals found in teeth.
Mechanism the body uses to remineralize tooth enamel is saliva. Animals fed stock will have
minerals in their saliva to interact with the tooth enamel to remineralize teeth.
Stock provides gut health allows for increased absorption of minerals (so much better than
taking vitamins and minerals in pill form)
The glucosaminoglycans (GAGs) found in fermented fish stock help repair compromised gum
tissue and strengthens ligaments that hold each tooth to the jaw bone.
Fermented sardines are high in ubiquinol shown to improve ability to produce saliva, which
improves gum and tooth health.
Skin and Coat
Fermented sardines provide a superior concentrated source of Omega 3. Not just the oil but all
nutrients that support hair and coat.
High in glycine which is required for liver detox
Contains Gelatin which coats nerves cells in the digestive system
High in glycine which has a calming effect, aids in sleep
Regulate immune system
Provides minerals in a form the body can easily absorb.
Minerals trigger metabolic enzymes required for healing.
Fermented fish is high in enzymes and highly absorbable nutrients.
Fermented fish stock contains ACE (angiotensin – converting- enzyme) inhibitors peptides that
naturally lower blood pressure.
Lowering blood pressure is important for pet with chronic kidney disease (CKD)
Naturally occurring nutrients in fermented sardines stimulate insulin secretion.
