Sardines Packed in Spring Water
Sardines are rich in protein, fats, vitamins, and minerals. They contain concentrated sources of omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA). Sardines are inexpensive, sustainable, and contain low levels of mercury and PCBs. Packed full of minerals, such as calcium, copper, iodine, and selenium, sardines are a superfood for your dogs and cats.
Canned sardines can be stored at room temperature. Even though canned sardines have a long storage life, it is best to check the expiration date. Turning the can every once in awhile helps ensure that all parts of the sardines are exposed to the liquid in which they are packed. Refrigerate unused portions of opened sardine cans.
