The importance of Omega-3 for dogs and cats
Omega-3 for dogs and cats can provide pets with itchy skin relief.
If you have an itchy dog or cat, natural supplements with Omega-3s can calm sensitive skin and help to reduce the itching and scratching.
Omega-3 is an essential fatty acid that the body needs but cannot produce naturally. Supplementing your pet's diet with Omega 3 can not only support their skin and coat health, but also maintain healthy brain function and joint health.
Often cats and dogs unwittingly receive an unnatural diet, which is too high in Omega 6 fatty acids derived from high levels of cereals and vegetable proteins. Special Omega 3 fatty acids, particularly EPA (Eicosapentaenoic Acid) and DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid) from refined fish oil are particularly important to counteract the omega 6 imbalance.
Sources of animal Omega 3 fatty acids EPA and DHA include, fish, fish oils, eggs from chickens fed EPA and DHA, squid oils and krill oil. nutravet uses highly refined Omega 3 fish oil from ocean sardines. The fish oil is put through an exclusive 6-step manufacturing process to extract the beneficial Omega 3s EPA and DHA from the oil and refining to the highest quality strength. Refining the oil also removes heavy metals and other undesirable pollutants to ensure maximum purity.
Feeding additional Omega 6 fatty acids can worsen the condition of your pet’s skin, therefore, it’s important to consider the ratio of Omega 6 to Omega-3. Pets need both, but in the correct proportions.
Introducing your pet to Omega-3 supplements, such as nutramega, which contains highly refined Omega-3 fish oil from ocean sardines, are particularly important to counteract the Omega-6 imbalance and do not include any added Omega-6 fatty acids.
nutramega provides high strength nutritional support for itchy dogs and also includes d-biotin, which synthesises fatty acids and is important for maintaining healthy skin, coat and nails. If you are looking for Omega-3 for pets then nutramega is recommended by vets throughout the UK as a high strength nutritional support for healthy skin and glossy coat.
