Nordic Naturals Omega-3 Pet Gel Caps is derived from highly sustainable wild anchovies and sardines from the Norwegian Sea and the Southern Pacific Ocean. It is an excellent source of the essential omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA, which promote optimal pet health and wellness. Unlike other fish oils made for pets, Nordic Naturals Omega-3 Pet Liquid is human-grade and human-quality, but is especially formulated for dogs and cats. Omega-3 essential fatty acids EPA and DHA are important for supporting healthy skin, coat, joints, brain, heart, and eye health as well as your pet's energy level.
Before dogs and cats were domesticated, they received their essential omega-3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA, from prey, such as rodents, birds, and elk. Today's pets depend on us for their food and although commercial pet food provides pet owners with a convenient method of feeding, some foods still may not provide your pet with the ideal levels of essential omega-3 fatty acids to promote optimal pet health and wellness.
While research indicates a ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids of 5:1-10:1 is optimal for dogs, many commercial pet foods contain primarily omega-6 fatty acids from animal fats and vegetable oils, which results in a highly unbalanced ratio dominated by omega-6 fatty acids. This ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids is key in helping nutrients fulfill their important function in the body. While the ratio is important to consider, it is also important to consider the source of Omega-3 fatty acids in the diet. Fish oil provides your pet with a direct source of omega-3 fatty acids, unlike plant oils, such as flax seed oil*, that must be converted to EPA and DHA in the body of dogs and cats.
To correct the fatty acid imbalance dominated by omega-6 fatty acids, pet owners can supplement their pets' food with a high-quality source of omega-3 fatty acids from wild, sustainable, fresh-caught fish. Even the best raw food diets or homemade diets will benefit from omega-3 fatty acid supplementation.
*The two health-promoting omega-3 fatty acids are eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). EPA ad DHA are long chain omega-3 fatty acids found abundantly in fish. Flax seed oil contains alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), a shorter chain omega-3 fatty acid that requires the enzyme delta-6 desaturase to convert it to EPA and DHA in th body.
Humans and dogs have limited ability to convert ALA to EPA nd DHA. Cats have less ability to covert ALA to EPA and DHA. Therefore, supplementation with high quality omega-3 fish oil is recommended for humans, dogs, and cats.
