Fish Oils

WHY SUPPLEMENT WITH FISH OILS?

Fish oil is probably the most important supplement you can add to your pet’s diet regardless of what type of diet you feed. EPA and DHA – the omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil – provide widespread benefits. Feeding whole fish also provides EPA and DHA that may be better absorbed, providing similar benefits in smaller doses.

BENEFITS:

  • Improved coat and skin
  • Reduces inflammation in arthritis, allergies and inflammatory bowel disease
  • Boosts immune system and calms overactive immune systems for pets with allergies or autoimmune diseases
  • Helps with mental development in fetuses and puppies/kittens
  • Improves cognitive function in older pets
  • Lowers blood pressure
  • Helps with kidney disease, heart disease and cancer
  • Helps with weight loss

RECOMMENDED DOSAGE:

Use products made for either humans or pets. The amount of EPA and DHA in various fish oil preparations varies. Look for concentrated forms when giving high doses so you use smaller amounts of oil. Healthy pets can be given 100-150 mg per 10lbs of body weight daily. Pets that have health problems can be given up to 300 mg per 10lbs of body weight. One ounce of canned fish with bones (sardines, jack mackerel and pink salmon) averages about 300mg of EPA and DHA combined.
