Catfish offers a variety of health benefits. Catfish has a high protein/amino acid profile. Amino acids contained in protein are responsible for many processes in the dog’s body, including maintenance of smooth workflow and digestion. Amino acids also help to regulate hormones, build muscles, fix tissue in tendons, ligaments, cartilages, and maintain healthy skin, hair, and nails. The fat contained in catfish will help your dog’s body in absorbing fat-soluble vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients. Catfish provide a substantial amount of dietary fat that is enriched with essential fatty acids, omega-3 and omega-6, that are adept at reducing inflammation, arthritis and other joint problems.
