EPA may help with conditions that cause inflammation of the heart, kidneys, skin, and joints—such as arthritis. It can ease inflammation due to allergies, and reduce itchy skin and dandruff. This can also be an effective way to potentially decrease the incidence of hot spots on your pets. Like many fat supplements, it promotes a shiny, healthy coat, and reduces shedding. DHA, the other omega-3 fatty acid in fish oil, is important in brain and eye development in puppies and kittens. Giving fish oil to pregnant or nursing pets may also benefit the babies once they’re born.
One of the best combinations out there for improving our pet’s health and overall well being is a mixture of Omega-3s from fish oil and Cannabidiol (CBD). Omega-3s fish oil contain two essential fatty acids: EPA and DHA (or eicosapentaenoic acid and docosahexaenoic acid). Both are omega-3 fatty acids that can only be made in a limited capacity in dogs and are even more poorly synthesized in cats. EPA, one of the two omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil, acts as an anti-inflammatory.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is not just beneficial for humans. Pets have the same endocannabinoid system as humans, allowing our furry best friends to benefit from CBD as well. CBD oil may have a relaxing, calming effect on our pets while reducing their anxiety which is helpful in pets with separation anxiety and various noise phobias. CBD Oil, like Omega-3s, is an anti-inflammatory that may help relieve joint discomfort. Also like Omega-3s, CBD supports cardiovascular function and helps promote a healthy heart.
In summary, we recommend giving your pet, whether young or old, CBD and a high quality Omega-3 rich source such as Wild Alaskan Salmon Oil daily. Our Pets by TerraVita tincture is formulated with THC-Free CBD Isolate and Wild Alaskan Salmon oil.
There are three types of omega 3 fatty acids, namely eicosapentaenoic (EPA), alpha-linolenic (ALA), and docosahexaenoic (DHA). Omega 6 fatty acids include linolenic (LA), arachidonic (AA), gamma-linolenic (GLA), and dihomo-GLA (DGLA). The fish oils for dogs are the primary source of omega 3 fatty acids. While both omega 3 fatty acids and omega 6 fats play important roles in your dog’s diet, we are going to take a deeper look at omega-3s, since that’s where fish oil comes into the picture. Your dog will enjoy the maximum benefits of omega 3 fatty acids via fish oil.
You also need to be aware of the two different types of essential fatty acids, i.e. Omega 3 and Omega 6. Your pet pooch needs ample amounts of both types of fatty acids to stay healthy. Let’s look at each in more detail:
Improved Cardiovascular Health
Considering all these factors will ensure that you are able to select a fish oil product that not only proves effective but is also free of any contaminants. You need to guarantee your dog’s safety when selecting any new supplement or product for your pet pooch. Going online and researching does help but the most significant step is talking to your vet about it.
This oil is free of contaminants and therefore has a stronger effect. This oil contains omega 3 fatty acids.
You have to store fish oil in a place that is not exposed to air, heat, or light. The best place is a dark corner or perhaps your medicine cabinet. You can conveniently stash it at the back of the fridge as well. Keep in mind that the fish oil will spoil if you don’t store it properly. Again, consulting your vet about effective storage can prove crucial for maintaining its quality.
