Fish Oil Believed to Be Beneficial for Dogs


Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/23/2015 -- Fish oil has long been used by many people who are struggling to fight various medical conditions. It is particularly recommended for individuals who suffer from coronary heart disease. However, it seems that the natural ingredient is not only good for humans, but for animals, too.

Fish oil is believed to be beneficial for dogs. Regardless of what type of diet pet owners feed their dogs, they can incorporate fish oil into it. There are widespread health benefits offered by the omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil for dogs.

"What makes fish oil more advantageous is that it is typically made from natural ingredients, unlike some other health enhancement pills for pets that are loaded with chemicals," said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan.

According to experts, the use of fish oil can potentially help dogs experience some improvements in the health and appearance of their coat and skin. In other words, it can help dogs be less susceptible to shedding and achieve a glistening coat and healthy skin. Dogs with irritated and dry skin can potentially gain moisture by using fish oil. The natural ingredient is also believed to help reduce inflammation caused by arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease and allergies.

There are also experts who believe that fish oil can help regulate the immune system and aid in the mental development of puppies. This can cause a positive impact in the cognitive function of the dog once it gets older. Fish oil is also believed to be helpful for lowering blood pressure, providing support for heart disease, kidney disease and cancer, as well as for promoting weight loss in dogs that are overweight.

Advanced research and several case studies also revealed the other benefits of omega-3 fatty acids. The use of fish oil is believed to be helpful with reducing the risk of heart problems and improving the energy of dogs.

While many pet owners feed their furry family members a diet including fish oil, a majority of these dogs are not getting the right amount of omega-3s to experience some health improvements. According to experts, pet owners may provide a dose such as 20mg of EPA per pound of body weight. For animals with joint issues or digestive disorders, fish oil with higher amounts of EPA is recommended. It can take about three weeks to see signs of improvement, such as reduced anxiety, better digestion, reduced itchy skin and improved mobility in dogs (
