Omega-3 fish Oil for Dogs and Cats by NHV Natural Pet Products

Posted March 3, 2015

We are all well aware of the benefits of omega-3 for our own health, but how about for our pets? There is a growing body of research in this area and recent studies show omega-3 to provide a variety of health benefits for animals. The British Journal of Small Animal Practice[1] found evidence supporting the use of omega-3 fatty acids in dogs with cardiac disease. The anti-inflammatory effects of omega-3 may be beneficial in managing the loss of lean body mass while also having positive effects on heart rate, blood pressure, and immune function. Further studies in Canada[2] and the Netherlands have shown that omega-3 fatty acids provide support for cats and dogs suffering from osteoarthritis by reducing inflammation and improving joint mobility.

NHV Natural Pet Products are proud to announce the launch of our new omega-3 supplement—Petomega 3! Suitable for both cats and dogs, our omega-3 fish oil is derived from sardines, anchovies and North Atlantic cod liver oil. Petomega 3 provides a great source of EPA (Eicosapentaenoic Acid) and DHA (Docosahexaenoic acid) essential fatty acids for your pet. It is molecularly distilled and cold pressed to improve the bio-availability of the omega-3 fatty acids, making our omega-3 supplements medical and human grade quality.

Including omega-3 in your pet’s diet is easy; simply add the recommended dosage to their food once a day. These ‘good fats’ promote healthy heart and kidney function, support the immune system and promote a healthy skin and coat. They also provide joint support, which is essential for helping your aging pets remain active and healthy throughout their lives. Peteducation.com provides a comprehensive overview of sources and uses of omega fatty acids for pets in this article.
