fatty acids EPA and DHA are important fatty acids for humans and their
dog and cat companions because they cannot be made in the body. The
only source of EPA and DHA for these species is through the diet and/or supplementation. Daily supplementation with Omega-3 Fatty Acids helps support optimal health for your pet companion.
EPA and DHA are necessary structural
components of cell membranes. These omega-3 fatty acids maintain the
cell membrane fluidity and permeability needed for healthy, functioning
EPA and DHA are found abundantly in
cold-water fish. Flax seed oil contains ALA, another omega-3 fatty acid
that requires the body to first convert ALA to EPA and DHA before
utilization. Humans and dogs have limited ability to make this
conversion, while cats have even less ability to make this conversion.
Therefore, supplementation with high-quality omega-3 fish oil is
recommended for humans, dogs and cats.
The omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA) found in fish oil support: • Cellular health • Immune system health • Skin and coat health • Joint health • Heart health • Brain development and maintenance • Eye development and maintenance
