Why does your dog need Omega-3's in its diet?
Omega 3 fatty acids are essential for your pet's optimal health. Certain fatty acids including omega-3 and omega-6 types are essential for your pet because they are used to build and maintain every cell in its body. Like us, our pets need to obtain omega-3 fats from the food that they eat because their bodies cannot produce them.
The average commercially available pet food is composed of processed ingredients that are wholesome and nutritious, but which tend to be rich in omega-6 fatty acids and relatively low in omega-3 fatty acids. This situation has led to a relative deficiency in omega 3 fatty acids in most pet's diets. Although the dietary ratio of these fatty acids has been the focus of many studies, it has more recently been observed that differences between vegetable based and fish based types of omega-3 exist. While there may be some benefit to the vegetable omega-3s, for optimal pet health fish oil omega-3 supplementation with fish and marine omega-3 oils is preferred.
Degenerative disease can result from a relative Omega-3/Omega 6 Imbalance
Chronic inflammation is the most damaging effect of omega-3/ omega-6 imbalance. Studies have shown that there is an undeniable connection between chronic inflammation and chronic degenerative conditions such as arthritis, immune dysfunction, heart disease, kidney failure, and even behavioral disorders. Another major benefit of omega-3 is its ability to improve the condition of your pet's skin especially where inflammation is present.
Make sure your pet receives the Omega-3 they need Your pet will benefit greatly from omega-3 supplementation. As noted above , the best source of omega-3 is from marine oils which are particularly rich in the omega-3 types known as EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and &DHA (docosahexaenoic acid).
