Processed foods and meat from grain-fed animals rob the body of the critical omega-3 fatty acids. The same is true for your dog’s diet. Naturally healthful, sustainably harvested Salmon Oil is the perfectly palatable solution to the Omega-3 shortage in your dog’s diet.
Salmon oil is rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids – primarily omega-3, including preformed DHA and EPA. Deficiency of these key fatty acids can contribute to difficulty maintaining a balance in inflammatory reactions and the functioning of all arms of the immune system. Skin and joint health depends on maintaining healthy balance in inflammatory pathways.
Omega-3 fatty acids are also essential to development and maintenance of normal vision, brain function and even behavior. Salmon oil is a particularly good source because it has a very high ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 of a least 20:1. That makes it an ideal complement to diets based on grains and grain fed animals products which are known to be too high in omega-6.
Salmon oil is also a good source of monounsaturated fatty acids, particularly oleic acid. Oleic acid is rich in the healthful Mediterranean diet and may help with glucose metabolism, an increasing issue for dogs today.
