Why Fermented Fish Stock is Changing the Game

A Probiotic Powerhouse for your Pet

Maybe you’ve seen Answers Fermented Fish Stock in the freezers at your local Wags to Wiskers Pet Supplies store in Ann Arbor or Chelsea. Maybe you haven’t. Today’s PUPDATE is about why we’ve got it on our shelves, why the pints are on sale for 50% off for all of November, and why it’s great for your dog!

At Wags to Wiskers, we vocally support and get behind products, product lines, and manufacturers we believe in. We get behind them because we believe they have the health of our fur family and customers in mind first and foremost. We have done a PUPDATE on Answers Goat Milk in the past, so if you haven’t checked that out feel free to!

So What Is It?

Wags to Wiskers Answers Fermented Fish Stock

Fermented fish stock is made from wild, line-caught, sustainable North Atlantic sardines. North Atlantic white fish serve as the perfect fish for bone broth, and when combined with the fermented sardines this formula creates a powerful solution of good bacteria and a biodiverse whole food source, leaving intact all of the complex nutrient relationships. This stock works better than fish oil and is a healthy way to replace probiotics and supplements for joint, enzyme, thyroid, and kidney support.

So What’s Fermented Fish Stock Good For?

We stand behind fermented fish stock for a wide variety of ailments and solutions. Especially in aging dogs and cats, we recommend adding this to a meal about 3-4x per week, although it depends on your dog’s weight, diet, and eating habits! Please consult the carton for a feeding guide.

  • Joint Support – Fermented fish stock contains glycosaminoglycans, which are a major component of glucosamine, chondroitin, hyaluronic acid, and joint cartilage.

  • Thyroid Support - Rich in iodine and other thyroid supportive nutrients.

  • Kidney Support - Fermented fish stock is essential for pets with kidney disease who are put on a low protein diet, as it reduces the body’s need for protein by up to 50%. Rich in arginine, it helps to metabolize protein waste and reduces blood pressure, which puts less strain on the kidneys.

  • Digestive Support – Gelatin is a naturally occurring product in fermented fish stock. It lines the digestive system and helps resolve leaky gut syndrome and colitis, while also providing a barrier against bad bacteria. Fermented fish stock is also high in Glycine, which helps regulate the making of bile salts and secretion of gastric juices, in addition to aiding in liver detox. Glycine is also an anti-inflammatory amino acid. It produces a calming effect, aids in sleep, and can help protect against seizures as well as brain damage.

  • Skin/Coat Support - Ground fermented sardines provide a dense source of all Omega fatty acids, which are key for optimal skin and coat health.

  • Dental Support - Fish stock helps remineralize tooth enamel by absorbing minerals into your pet’s saliva. The same glycosaminoglycans that aid in joint health also assist in the repair of ligaments and the tightening of teeth.

  • Diabetic Support - Ground fermented sardines naturally stimulate the secretion of insulin. They are also rich in magnesium, which increases insulin sensitivity.

  • Immune Support - The minerals provided naturally in fermented fish stock are more readily absorbed, and they trigger metabolic enzymes which boost healing functions. Answer’s Fermented Fish Stock is an amazing way to regulate the immune system.

  • Seizure Relief - As well as aiding in digestion, the gelatin found in fermented fish stock has anti-inflammatory and brain protecting functions. Specific glycosaminoglycans also enhance the brain’s ability to eliminate heavy metals and other toxins.
