Omega 3 FAQ’s
What would a dog owner expect from feeding omega 3 fatty acids from salmon oil?
Health outcomes may vary depending on underlying clinical status. Hair coat glossiness and softness as well as reduced inflammatory conditions such as allergies manifested in itching and redness of the skin may cease. In healthy dogs omega-3 fatty acid will help maintain overall health.
How long does it take to notice a response?
Inflammatory conditions such as allergies may improve within two weeks; however, in most cases levels of omega-3 fatty acids in the blood often reach a steady level after one month of supplementation.
What is the metabolism of omega-3 fatty acids in dogs?
Dogs exhibit poor efficiency of covering alpha-linolenic acid found in vegetables into EPA and DHA and therefore supplementation with omega-3 from fish oil is recommended.
What is the ideal ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids?
Conventional dog foods have a ratio of omega-6 to omega- 3 fatty acids of 20:1compared with a healthy ratio of 5:1. To achieve this ratio supplementation with the omega-3 fatty acids from oil is recommended.
