The Omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA are two powerhouses in helping maintain naturally healthy skin, lustrous coat, healthy joints and a sound cardiovascular system. DHA has also been shown to be very beneficial for the nervous system, eyes, and for maintaining a naturally high fertility status.
Fish oil is good for dogs – and cats! Veterinarians first used omega-3 fatty acids in the form of fish oil to treat canine allergies but now recommend it for a wide variety of conditions ranging from kidney disease to arthritis and high cholesterol. When added to your pet’s diet, fish oil for dogs provides anti-inflammatory effects and can help relieve itching due to atopic dermatitis, an allergy-related skin condition.
It is important to note that even if you feed your pet a food containing fish, there is not a significant enough amount of oil in the food, so it is still advisable to include a fish oil supplement on top of that. In fact, we’ll go as far to say that almost every dog or cat–no matter what food they eat–and as long as they don’t have food allergies related to fish, will benefit from Omega-3 supplementation.
