The benefits of adding fish oil to dog food 🐶
Fish oil is found in all of our signature bowls, due to its impressive benefits to your dog’s health.
Like humans, dogs can’t produce omega-3 fatty acids themselves, so rely on their diet to get these key nutrients.
Why fish oil?
An important supplement in your pup’s diet, fish oil is found in the tissue of fatty fish and contains omega 3’s, which can assist in heart health, boosting immunity and reducing itchy and flaky skin.
High quality and sustainable
Like our other ingredients, quality is key and we only use the highest quality fish oil, which is sourced from small fish such as sardines and anchovies. These fish are low in mercury, wild caught and sustainably harvested from reputable local suppliers.
What are the benefits of fish oil?
✅ Fish oil is packed full of DHA and EPA – otherwise known as omega-3 essential fatty acids – that can help to improve cognitive function, memory and even the immune system.
✅ Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, fish oil can help to support the look and feel of your pup’s skin and coat, as well as reduce dry and flaky skin and give them their glow back.
✅ Fish oil is a great way to help with weight management and keep your dog fit and healthy.
Is fish oil safe?
When served at the optimal, vet-approved dose, fish oil is safe for dogs. Dog prepped meal services such as Lyka, ensure meals exceed the AAFCO Omega 6: Omega 3 ratio requirements of 30:1 to assist in the optimum ratio of anti-inflammatory properties.
They also adhere to FEDIAF’s stricter guidelines on extra vitamin E in high omega content diets. Like humans, dogs can take fish oil supplements, but some supplements can contain sweeteners or other unnecessary ingredients that aren’t beneficial for your dog. Obtaining fish oil from real fish will always trump in quality, and this is why we use both and always the highest quality.
Adverse reactions are generally considered to be very low in dogs that are intolerant to fish, but if you’re concerned about your dog consuming fish oil or having an allergic reaction, always speak with your trusted vet.
