Herring is a type of fish that is a good source of protein, healthy omega-3 fatty acids, and other essential nutrients.

It is a so-called “named” ingredient on many pet food labels, and is used in various limited-ingredient formulations designed for sensitive stomachs. Some common types of pet foods that may contain herring include:

  • Fish-based dry kibble: We partner with pet food companies to provide high-quality herring as the primary source of protein in dry kibble.
  • Wet canned food: Herring can also be found in wet canned pet foods, either as a primary ingredient or as a supplemental protein source.
  • Treats: Some pet treat manufacturers offer herring-based treats, such as jerky or fish chews, as a healthy snack option for dogs and cats.
