As for buying dog food with fish sourced from non-Thai waters, some companies do state where the fish is sourced. But many manufacturers have a long way to go to make the process transparent and easy enough for consumers to find their ingredient sourcing. (We highly recommend calling pet food companies and asking for this information to be more readily available!)
Based on the ingredients included in Orijen Six Fish Dry Dog Food we give a 4.8 stars score.

I went to Wyson Vegan checked the (huge) ingredient list (snore…). No fish oil or fish is listed but it does contain Omega 3 and Omega 6 oils. These generally come from fish.
Another thing to try is to make your own food. I did this for one of our dogs and i recommend it only if you have a lot of patience. There are many good books on this subject. My favorite was “Home-Prepared Dog and Cat Diets,” by Donald R. Strombeck, DVM, PhD. At the time I also subscribed to a Yahoo group called Totally Home Cooking. They had many diets available as spreadsheets and you could enter your dog’s weight and age and customize them. I can’t find it now, though. Most of those dog owners pets were afflicted with IBS. If I had not hooked up with Annamaet, which does contain a human grade fish oil, menhaden, I would start looking into home prep again. It will not be kibble, but where does it say dogs must have kibble? Especially if you have special needs.
On the other hand, if all that bothers you is fish breath you could start brushing your dog’s teeth…Good luck. Fish meal can be a healthy addition to your dog's food.

Omega-3 fatty acids such as those found in some fish based dog food are important to many aspects of your dog’s health:
- Since Omega-3 fatty acids are a type of fat, they serve as a source of calories for your dog.
- Omega-3 fatty acids help support healthy skin and a shiny coat.
- They aid in supporting the immune system.
- Growing puppies require a dietary source of the Omega-3 fatty acid DHA to help support proper development and function of the brain, the central nervous tissue and vision.
- For pregnant and lactating dogs, Omega-3 fatty acids are essential for proper development of the brain and vision of their puppies.Like people, dogs may derive benefit from enjoying a fish-based food. In addition to being a healthy source of protein, some fish is also rich in Omega-3 fatty acids.While fish dog food is certainly a healthy choice for your dog, it can also be sourced in a way that makes it a healthy choice for the environment.
