Dog Food With Omega 3 Helps Keep Dog’s Skin And Coat Healthy
Looking for a dog food high in Omega 3 fatty acids? Well, you’re not alone. Omega 3’s work wonders when it comes to your dogs skin and coat. That’s why it is so important to read the labels on dog food. Many dog foods on the market don’t have this important ingredient and it can make all the difference in the world.
There are so many health benefits for dogs when they are supplemented with Omega 3 fatty acids. Besides helping to control allergies in dogs and contributing to a shiny and healthy coat, they can even help older dogs with mental alertness as well.
Life’s Abundance holistic veterinarian, Dr. Jane Bicks, says that many dog foods, unfortunately, are high in Omega 6’s. Without the proper balance of Omega 3’s this can lead to itchy skin, ear infections,digestion issues and even joint problems.
Other signs of Omega 3 deficiency in dogs are:
scaly, dry skin
slow wound healing
Omega 3’s are vital for cell function, muscles, nerves, and internal organs.
There are also supplements available with Omega 3 fatty acids dogs can take. When a dog gets the proper amount of Omega 3’s in their diet their health is truly transformed in so many ways.
