Fish Oil For Dogs.

Ensuring that your dog gets proper nutrition along with essential fatty acids is very important to keep your dog healthy.

Fish oil for dogs can be a really good supplement to keep them in optimum health, and to prevent such diseases as arthritis and kidney disease.

If you feed your dog food that you purchase from the store in a bag, rest assured that your dog is not receiving everything he needs nutritionally.

Store bought dog food is over processed and grain based.

Your dog is not a cow or a horse, so he is not really getting all of the nutrition that he needs out of that particular bag of dog food.  It becomes important then, to ensure that you supplement your dog with fish oil for dogs to ensure that he get the essential omega 3 fatty acids that will help to ensure good heart health and great health overall.

Fish oil for dogs can help to prevent many common ailments, including, but not limited to:

  • Dull coat;
  • Ear infections
  • Cardiac issues;
  • Mental decline (in old age)
  • Cancer;
  • Arthritis
  • Colitis, inflammatory bowel disease.

Adding one fish oil capsule containing Omega 3 and Omega 6 to your dog’s food can help to prevent or lessen the chances of the above ailments.  You simply take a pin, poke the end of the capsule and drizzle it over your dog’s food at meal times.

Many of us have been led to believe that a bag of dog food contains all of the necessary ingredients to keep our dog healthy, but this is simply not true.  Perhaps the dog food you purchase states that it does contain fish oil, or some other Omega 3 ingredient, such as flax.

The truth is that these oils need to be fed to your dog fresh, the process of cooking the food and manufacturing it basically removes all nutritional value.

It is important to supplement your dog’s food in order to ensure he receives the proper nutrition that he deserves and needs to remain healthy and a happy part of your family for years to come.

    My dog is a 2.9 year old female, spayed yellow lab. She has both inhalant/food allergies and seizures. She is currently on the RAW diet (Nature’s Variety – rabbit alternating weekly with bison)along with supplements of probiotic, Aller-Ease, Brain Vital which was recommended by the nutritionist through Nature’s Variety. My holistic vet has prescribed External Wind. She is fed 1 lb of meat along with 2 1/2 cups green beans, 1/2 cup broccoli and a tablespoon of olive oil per day.

    She is allergic to fish oil and flax seed oil (Barleans). Can you recommend a different Omega 3?

    Per her vet we have taken her off of her allergy injections which were given every other week (Allergen serum, insect and mold). She has been doing really good 11 weeks without. Until I gave her a ham bone last week and a beef bone this week. Each time within a few hours her tummy became a solid red/raw rash. No hives, pustuales or lesions.

    May I ask what you would recommend to help re-build her immune system?

    Thank you for your time. Sincerely, Lynn/Kaydee
