The duo began baking fish skins using a perfected method and the world famous Fish4Dogs Original Sea Jerky was born. Delicious, healthy, low in calories, the original Sea Jerky treats are baked to perfection using the original methods, from 100% ethically sourced white fish skins; naturally abrasive in texture, helping remove plaque and prevent tartar build up on teeth. With different shapes and sizes, there’s a Sea Jerky treat to suit every breed.
