Yes. Anchovies are even more rich in Omega 3 fatty acids than most other fish. Omega 3s have anti-inflammatory properties and provide benefits for the cardiovascular system, brain, joints, skin, and fur.
Make sure you’re not buying anchovies packed in salt. Too much sodium will undermine the health benefits. A small dog can have two to three anchovies per day, while a larger dog can have five. Offer these as a snack or add them to your dog’s usual bowl of food.
