Fish is a very useful source of protein for dogs, which is filled with the necessary nutrients. It’s also a great source of protein for pets who have digestive sensitivity to traditional sources like beef and chicken. This is a simple recipe that uses limited ingredients to help give your pup the nutrition their body needs.
Fish is brain food. We’ve all heard that phrase, haven’t we? That’s because it’s filled with omega-3 fatty acids, including docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), which helps brain development and function. The omega-3 fatty acids found in fish also contribute to skin and coat health, support the immune system and help reduce inflammation.
This recipe only needs 4 ingredients. It’s easy to make and can be frozen if you don’t have time to cook for your pup. Fish also adds a tantalizing aroma to your dog that can encourage picky eaters or no-appetite pets to eat their dinner.
Fish and vegetable omelette for dogs
If you ask your veterinarian what is the best indicator of your dog’s overall health and wellbeing, they will likely tell you that it is your pup’s skin and coat condition. Proper nutrition can just be the easiest way to improve your dog’s skin and coat health, and most recipes that use fish as a source of protein would make good options. Adding the right ingredients balances the skin’s pH and stimulates the production of natural oils.
Recipe: fish and vegetable omelette for dogs
Bell peppers are a safe and healthy vegetable choice for dogs. Red peppers are the most nutritious, but I happened to have a yellow pepper on hand when preparing this recipe. Red, yellow, green, and orange peppers are safe for dogs.
- Preparation time: 5 minutes
- Cooking time: 15 minutes
- Total time: 20 minutes
- Yield: 1.5 cups 1x
- Category: Cooked food
- Method: Stovetop
- Kitchen: Dog Food
- 2 Eggs
- 1/4 cup Paprika (diced)
- 1/2 cup Canned salmon
- 1 teaspoon. olive oil
Heat the olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Put the eggs in the pan and stir. You can stir before adding it to the pan if you want, but as I mentioned in my video tutorial above, it saves a dish and takes less time to just stir it into the pan.
Add the fish and diced paprika to the eggs, break the fish into small pieces, and keep stirring. Let the meal cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Allow the food to cool completely before serving it to your dog.

How much to feed: I recommend feeding about 1/2 cup of food for every 20 pounds of body weight. This recommendation applies to 2 servings per day. This is just a guideline. Lazy pets and older dogs may not need that many. It is extremely important that you ask your veterinarian about the best serving size for your dog.
How to save: You can store the leftover dog omelette in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-5 days or freeze it and it will keep for up to 3 months. Keep in mind that this recipe contains no preservatives, so it won’t last nearly as long as commercial dog food.
