Fisherman’s Best Friend (New & Improved Recipe)
About this Product
**New & Improved Recipe** Now with sustainable wild-caught whitefish!
Tom&Sawyer’s gently-cooked meals for dogs are made by trained chefs in their independently owned Canadian pet meals kitchen following strict adherence to regulations for making human food, using only top restaurant-quality ingredients, preservative-free and packaged frozen. Each recipe is expertly developed by their pet nutrition team to be complete and balanced. All meals include Tom&Sawyer’s Digestive Aid Blend and custom human food-grade vitamin&mineral, as well as anchovy fish oil and Canadian hemp seed oil for perfectly balanced Omega 3-6-9 polyunsaturated fatty acids, which help reduce inflammation, improve joint mobility and clear skin conditions.
Wild pollock provides a heart-healthy, hypoallergenic fish option in this grain-friendly and low-fat recipe. Our animal nutrition team designed this recipe to be 20 grams of fat / 1000kcal, a suitable level for dogs with pancreatitis. Parboiled brown rice provides a more easily digestible healthy carbohydrate and extra calories. The addition of cranberries packs an antioxidant punch and the inclusion of a small amount of coconut oil (a medium-chain triglyceride) can help soothe your dog’s digestive system and help with nutrient absorption.
- Low-fat recipe
- Wild-caught whitefish is considered hypoallergenic
- Packed with other superfoods ingredients such as cranberries, kale, coconut oil and parsnips, containing antioxidants that provide anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal abilities.
