I know, I know. You are going to think I’ve gone over to la la land for giving caviar to dogs. But before you send for the men in the little white coats let me tell you some of the health benefits of caviar, especially the Wild Salmon Roe (always use wild salmon roe for your canines). According to researchers at the University of Almería (UAL) in Spain…
“We have classified these eggs as unequivocal sources of Omega 3, and have proven that this appears at high concentrations in all the species studies”, says José Luis Guil Guerrero, director of this study and a researcher in the Food Technology Department of the UAL. “Omega 3 fatty acids are present in all fish roe, but especially in the eggs of Atlantic bonito (Sarda sarda), mackerel (Scomber scombrus), squid (Loligo vulgaris), cuttlefish (Sepia sp.), lumpsucker (Cyclopterus lumpus), hake (Merluccius merluccius) and salmon (Salmo salar). More than 30% of the fatty acids found in these eggs were EPA and DHA. Small consumption of lumpsucker, hake or salmon roe satisfies the human body’s Omega 3 essential fatty acid requirements, because of its levels of EPA and DHA.” – European Journal of Lipid Science and Technology, December 2009.”
A few of the Benefits :
1. Helps protect the brain and damage from strokes
2. Because of the salmon roe’s phosphatidylcholine, it is beneficial in chronic liver disease.
3. The high lysine in caviar, when combined with certain drugs, has the ability to cause a cancer cell to destroy itself. Some doctors even recommend eating caviar after major Surgery and chemo treatment.
And it is sooo good!
As a matter of fact, the reason there is only one Wild Salmon Roe Egg in the picture is because Mimi, Casper, and I decided we would just take a bite or two to test the recipe, and then the eggs just disappeared.
