Omega-3 Supplements: Can They Help My Pet?Back to overview
You are here
Are you taking omega-3 supplements yourself and are wondering if they would be good for your beloved pet’s health? It turns out they are just as good for our pets as they are for us! This article is all about their benefits and how to choose them wisely!
Omega-3s Are Essential in Animal Diets
Did you know that animals can’t produce essential omega-3 fatty acids on their own and therefore they must be supplemented in their diet?
Fish oil is the best source of omega-3 fatty acids for your pet. Ongoing research indicates that omega-3 fatty acids are a beneficial daily dietary supplement for humans, dogs, and cats.
Many pet foods—moist and dry—contain omega-3s, but it’s important to check. If they don’t, then a fish-oil omega-3 supplement could provide the daily amount your pet needs to maintain good health.
Omega-3s Have Many Benefits for Our Pets
Omega-3 fatty acids are used:
- To support kidney and heart function
- To maintain a healthy skin and coat
- To maintain overall good health
- To support joint health
There is no need to wait until your pet’s coat is dull or suffering from osteoarthritis: you can supplement with omega-3s anytime, kittens and puppies can benefit!
Always ask a veterinary professionals advice, though, before you give your pet anything.
Lastly, it’s always best to use products specially formulated for companion animals: they are the only ones that can guarantee your pet’s safety, because the ingredients they contain are adapted for pets.
AllerG-3® fish-oil-based omega-3 fatty-acid supplements are a product range designed for dogs and cats. They are available at your veterinary clinic!
