Summary of Plato’s Wild Caught Baltic Sprat

The squeamish may not like these as they are whole fish and they do have a slight fishy smell. It is not overpowering and will not stink up the entire house but it’s there. These are wild caught from Estonia. Each fish is fully traceable and responsibly caught. Sprats have many health benefits but due to having a higher fat content, they are not the best choice for overweight dogs or those with conditions that are worsened with a fatty diet.

The Breakdown

  • Similar to sardines, Baltic sprat is a nutrient dense, natural source of Omega 3. They also have a low mercury count like sardines and since these are meant to be given as a treat not a meal, no worries there. Sprats can improve heart and coat health.
