Serving tip:

Lake Smelt like any fish can be an acquired taste.  If your dog or cat is hesitant to eat them, try cutting up and mixing into a raw meal.  You can also experiment with offering fresh, frozen or even dehydrated.  Often once they have had them semi-regularly this will be a new meal addition they will love!

    I most always have these in our monthly order, and when I run out I head to our nearest retailers that carries BCR to get more – sometimes going to more than one location just to stock up. These nutritious little fish have replaced biscuits as treats in our house. When you have more than two dogs it is so economical and very healthy. My crew LOVE these, especially frozen. Next to the word “dinner”, “SMELT” brings them running.

    Smelt is a great addition to any meal. I use smelts vs herring oil for some meals. I have also dehydrated them (they dehydrate very well) for a tasty single ingredient treat for my boy.

    At first my dog didn’t understand these little fishies but now he really enjoys them. If I am not feeding a fish based food I top with either the herring oil or the smelt to ensure he gets his Omega 3s.

    Our customers dogs love these and my dogs wait for their fish desert after each meal . When one on my dogs had an operation she did not want to eat, the first thing she would eat for a while was the fish and her goats milk

  5. Amanda Virdo (verified owner)

    We give these to our dog at every meal. A great way to supplement omegas

  6. aricher (verified owner)

    Awesome addition to any meal! We often use smelt as the omega supplement when not using herring oil!

  7. Kristina Heald Hoogenboom (verified owner)

    A great little treat or meal topper. Packed full of omega 3.

    We love these as a treat or to add to meals to make them a little extra fun.

  9. Ashley

    Lake smelts are great for a little snack on my dogs meals or even on its own. We alternate the herring oil with the lake smelts and my dogs LOVE them! It’s the first thing gone in their bowl.

    We love adding the lake smelt to meals or as little treats. He gobbles them right up! It’s a great way to add variety to your dogs meals. These little fishy are fantastic.

    My guy loves these, but not at first try! Started giving them to him at about 5 months, he was very unsure, he would take it out of his bowl and put it on my chair in the living room, lol. Then he would just eat the body and leave the head (yes, on my chair) Now, he LOVES them, he is 9 months old and he devours them!! His favourite thing to do is ‘catch’ them, he will sit and if we throw it up in the air he will jump to get it, highly recommend, with some perseverance 😉

    My pup has a hard time with the Herring Oil so I supplement the smelts instead. They are a fantastic addition to his meals and he loves the taste and texture (either frozen or thawed). I follow the suggested serving amount from the website for supplementing and always keep at least three bags on hand. Definitely my most favorite BCR product!

  13. Ashley Martin

    One of my kitties had stopped eating his raw food. I tried switching flavors to no avail. As a last resort I tried these little fish, cut up, and problem solved. I didn’t want him only eating these fish so now I cut them up and mix them in with his regular raw food and he’ll eat everything. Of course with these little tasty treats my other kitties wanted some too, solution, now everyone gets little tasty morsels of fish in with their evening meal and they couldn’t be happier.

  14. Vanessa

    We love offering these is few times a week, instead of the herring oil, to mix things up. Sometimes we even dehydrate them for a treat!

  15. Emily

    These are my go-to option for my girl if she’s not eating a meal with fish. She absolutely loves them. Such a great addition to her bowls.

  16. Rachelstocco (verified owner)

    I feed these frozen as meal toppers. My dogs like guys love them. They weren’t too sure about them at first but absolutely love them now!

  17. Kristina D

    Every time I buy food I buy a few bags of frozen smelt. When my freezer door opens my dog runs over for a smelt treat. He loves them straight from the freezer or a little thawed. Such a great addition to add some variety to meals.

  19. JazzyJetson

    Great treat and for getting omegas. My dog loves them!

  20. meghaanlee

    My dog wasn’t a huge fan of these, and normally he eats anything I give him. Cutting them up helped, but if you have a picky eater you may run into issues. You also get a decent amount of smelt for the price, so can’t complain (:

  21. Glenda

    My dogs love these frozen as a treat! It’s great that they can get their omega’s in something they love so much!
