Why Use This Supplement
Omega 3 fatty acids cannot be made by your pet’s body, so it is vital that your pet consumes them as part of their diet. Since the 1930s it has been known that the omega 3 fatty acids docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) were essential for normal growth.
Further health benefits were discovered in the 1970s by researchers studying the Greenland Inuit Tribe, who consumed large amounts of omega 3 fatty acids from seafood. In September 2004 the US FDA gave “qualified health claim status” to EPA and DHA.
Omega oils are essential for skin and coat quality, cardiovascular/ heart health, immune response, cognitive/ brain function and joint function/ mobility.
Research has proven that DHA from fish oils makes puppies more intelligent, easier to train and improves memory. For the research, carried out by Eukanuba, 9 week old puppies were taught how to recognise shapes that led them to a treat. After 5 days training twice the number of puppies fed on the high -DHA diet achieved an 80% success rate (in finding the treat in a T-shaped maze). The studies authors claim that this could save owners up to £1000 per year in behaviour correction fees.
British veterinary surgeon and dog behavioural expert Sara Heath commented on the research: “Enhancement of a puppy’s cognitive development and exposure to various learning opportunities can maximise the potential for it to develop into an adult dog that can be readily welcomed as a member of society.”
Pooch & Mutt Salmon Oil is sustainably sourced from Atlantic Salmon reared in Scottish sea lochs under carefully controlled, natural and environmentally compatible conditions. The salmon oil has a rich taste that dogs (and cats) love.
