Q: Do I use a whole pack of Slurps as one serving?
A: For most dogs (6-26kg), you’ll get 3-4 servings from one pack but it does vary by size as shown on the back of the pack. See ‘How to Slurp‘
Q: How is there so much Omega 3 in Slurps?
A: Our fish oils have a very high Omega 3 (EPA & DHA = the good stuff) content compared to other pet foods. They come from small fish like anchovies and sardines which are packed with Omega 3 and a lot more sustainable than bigger fish which take longer to grow.
