Fish Oil Believed to Be Helpful for Keeping Dogs and Cats Healthy


Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/04/2015 -- Pets, such as dogs and cats, are considered in many households to be important members of their family. Pet owners make sure that their furry family members are given the nutritional and medical attention that they need. In addition to healthy food, there are also nutritional supplements such as fish oil that are believed to be helpful for pets.

Fish oil is believed to be helpful for keeping dogs and cats healthy. Fish oil contains omega-3 fatty acids, which contain therapeutic properties. Adding fish oil to the pet's diet can provide a myriad of health benefits.

"Veterinarians have long been using fish oil to nourish animals with omega-3 fatty acids, which can help fight allergies. However, nowadays, fish oil is used to avoid a variety of conditions ranging from kidney disease to arthritis," said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan.

In research studies, it was found that incorporating fish oil into a pet's diet can provide positive benefits. This natural alternative contains anti-inflammatory properties that can provide relief from scratching, itching, and allergy related skin conditions. Experts stress the importance of getting pet foods with sufficient amounts of omega-3 fats such as EPA and DHA. The bad news is that many pet foods contain significantly unbalanced ratios of omega-6 fats to omega-3 fats.

According to research, the optimal ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 for dogs and cats is 5:1 to 10:1. It is imperative to provide pets with high quality omega-3 fish oil for optimum health. There have been many studies that found fish oil is helpful for the improvement in the function and health of the heart, eyes, joints, immune system, skin and coat.

Veterinarians have discovered that fatty acids such as omega-3s can be very helpful for various conditions such as inflammatory diseases in pets. Among these ailments are kidney disease, arthritis, elevated cholesterol, heart disease, allergies and cancers. Vets recommend that dogs and cats with more severe diseases be given a dose of omega-3s that is higher than what is commonly recommended.

A growing number of scientific studies are still being conducted to explore more of the tremendous healing properties offered by fish oil. There are many nutritional supplements recommended for pets nowadays, and one of the most popular products is fish oil.

Experts recommended that pet owners choose fish oil supplements that have the highest concentration of omega-3 fats. They should also purchase their fish oil supplement from a reputable herbal company (
