Silver Copi - A Mercury-Free Source of Fish Protein!
By Team Chippin
Protein is an integral part of your pup’s diet, but finding the right source of protein can be tricky. Traditional protein sources like chicken and beef come with a whole host of their own problems including being packed with antibiotics and other allergens.
A potential solution to this problem could be from the sea – fish. Including fish in your pup’s diet is an amazing way to ensure that they receive high quality nutrients like omega-3s and a complete source of protein with all 10 essential amino acids. However, it can be difficult to decide which fish sources are worthy of your pup. A lot of common fish sources, like tuna, swordfish, grouper, and king mackerel, can be dangerous for your dog because they contain nasty contaminants like mercury, PCBs, PBDEs, dioxins, and chlorinated pesticides. Just like us hoomans, if our pups consume too many of these contaminants, like mercury, it can lead to heavy metal toxicity which can cause rapid illness and even death.
Enter, silver copi. Your fish in a silver cape. Formerly known as silver carp, silver copi is a top-feeding, vegetarian-eating fish with a rather short life-cycle. This means that silver copi are a clean, fresh fish that are free of contaminants!
This multi-faceted and safe fish is an excellent candidate for protein for your pup. What’s more, pups love our Silver Copi Jerky treats, and why wouldn’t they? When you choose silver copi, you can be sure your pup is receiving a clean protein source that is packed with omega-3s and will support their long lifecycle.
