Dried fish skin provides an appropriate natural outlet for your dog's chewing instinct. Elinora's Royal Natural Snack is made solely out of dried Icelandic fishskin. It is a purely natural product without any additives or preservatives. About 77% of the dried fish skin is protein and the rest is mostly fiber. It is very healthy for dogs and especially beneficial for maintaining good teeth and a beautiful coat. In addition dried fish skin is excellent for puppies at teething time!
Fish is an excellent source of pure protein but also contains essential fatty acids which are an important part of a dog's diet. In recent years a good deal of research has been conducted into the health benefits of omega fatty acids for dogs, and specifically on those omega-3 acids found in fish oils. Fish from deep cold waters, such as those surrounding Iceland, are especially rich in these acids.
A pure natural product of Iceland
Until recently only part of each cod which was caught and landed in Iceland and other countries was eaten. The rest used to go to land-fill - or get turned into 'fishmeal' by incinerating it till it turned into powder. This is a serious waste of our precious marine resources. Royal Natural Snack has found better uses of the cod by-products, and all the wonderful ingredients which they contain, by producing them into healthy dog treats. This is an important part of the company's policy and the general policy of the Icelandic government concerning sustainable development.
The Rio Conference on the environment and development in 1992 marked a milestone in environmental affairs, where the states of the world agreed to work under the banner of sustainable development. The Icelandic government adopted a revised sustainable development strategy "Welfare for the Future" in August 2002. This strategy was developed through broad consultation between ministries, with stakeholders and civil society. Iceland has ratified the Kyoto Protocol and has adopted a national implementation strategy to meet the emissions limits for greenhouse gases set in the Protocol. Almost all stationary energy in Iceland is pollution-free, thanks to Iceland's abundant sources of hydro and geothermal energy. It is envisioned that hydrogen and other alternative fuels can replace fossil fuels in transport and the fishing fleet in the future, and pilot projects have been launched to encourage this development. Nature conservation is another priority, as some of Europe's largest wilderness areas are located in Iceland. The first comprehensive nature conservation plan was introduced in 2003. Of special importance in the near future is the development of the uninhabited central highlands, which comprise about 40% of Iceland.
Iceland is free from pollution. Abundant clean and renewable hydro- and geothermal energy sources provide about 70% of Iceland's energy needs.
