Nordic Naturals Omega 3 Fish Oil Supplement for Pets contains the health-promoting and anti-inflammatory Omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA derived from 100% wild anchovies and sardines exclusively from the Norwegian Sea to the Southern Pacific Ocean depending on their seasonal migration. These nutrients are important for supporting healthy skin, coat, joints, brain, heart, and eye health, as well as an animal's energy level. While research indicates that a ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3 of 5:1 to 10:1 is optimal for dogs, many pet foods contain primarily Omega-6 fatty acids from vegetable oils. This results in a highly unbalanced ratio dominated by pro-inflammatory Omega-6.
This encapsulated Omega 3 Fish Oil Supplement for Pets from Nordic Naturals is convenient at home or when traveling with your companion to dog or cat shows, field trials, obedience and agility competitions, or when just plain old vacationing. We feel fish oil from smaller non-predatory fish like anchovies and sardines is preferable to fish oil from salmon and other predatory fish that can contain higher levels of contaminants.
Some pet diets may include Omega-3 fatty acids; however, virtually none include satisfactory amounts of the most important Omega-3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA. In addition, any of these healthy fatty acids present are oxidized during the processing of the foods and/or eventually lose any healthy benefits during storage. *Oxidizing of any fats during high heat processing can also cause the creation of carcinogenic compounds.
