The Dog Grocer Rainbow Trout is a member of the salmon family. It is a sustainable, low mercury fish deemed to be an excellent alternative to the often overfished salmon. Rainbow Trout also has one of the richest omega 3s content of all fishes. While most fish generally contain a natural presence of enzyme thiaminase, which can break down thiamine in meats and lead to thiamine deficiencies in largely fish-based diets, Rainbow Trout does not contain thiaminase. While some recommend cooking trout instead of feeding raw due to the risks involving Rickettsial parasite or Nanophyetus salmincola (what many know as Salmon Poisoning Disease), TDG Rainbow Trouts are farmed – with controlled water conditions and feeds, reducing risks of carrying parasites. All raw fed fish are also recommended to be deep frozen at -18 degrees Celsius for at least 3 weeks.
