Omega-3 Fatty Acid Supplement for Dogs
Vetoquinol Triglayceride OMEGA Fatty Acid Capsules contain
a concentrated source of omega-3 fatty acids supplemented with vitamins A, D
and E. OMEGA is a supplementary source of Omega-3 Fatty acids where dietary
intake is inadequate or when the skin and coat condition indicate that
supplementation would be of benefit to the animal.
Your Pet's Skin
Skin is the largest organ of your pet's body; as such it performs several
important functions. Many elements are important to maintaining the health
of your pet's skin including routine cleaning, grooming and a well balanced
nutritionally complete diet. A well balanced diet must contain adequate
quantities of high quality protein, fatty acids, vitamins and minerals to
preserve the integrity and function of the skin. Pets that have diseases
affecting the skin may need supplements of one or more dietary components to
help the skin function more normally.
Allergies and Skin
When your pet has allergies, he or she is more likely to itch and scratch
than to develop runny eyes and nose as you do. Substances that cause
allergies (allergens) may be inhaled, eaten or absorbed onto and through the
skin. Many of the same things that you are allergic to can cause problems
for your pet, too. These include grass, trees, mold, dust, dander or certain
foods. Allergens from any source cause immune cells to release inflammatory
substances into the skin. These substances cause your pet to itch and
scratch and may contribute to chronic skin and ear infections making your
pet uncomfortable and unhappy.
Triglyceride OMEGA Fatty Acids
Triglyceride OMEGA Fatty Acid supplements contain omega-3 fatty acids
derived from fish oil. These fatty acids help decrease allergy related
itchiness in the skin by interfering with production of the inflammatory
substances that cause the itching. The omega-3 fatty acids in
Vetquinol Omega Fatty Acids supplements, EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA
(docosahexaenoic acid), are found only in cold water fish and are not
commonly used to make dog food. Other omega fatty acids such as omega-6 and
omega-9 fatty acids are plentiful in dog food and do not, therefore, need to
be supplemented. In fact, the presence of too many omega-6 fatty acids may
actually promote inflammation. Vetoquinol OMEGA (formerly AllerG-3) Fatty
Acid supplements contain high quality fish oil which meets or exceeds label
claims for purity, strength, quality, and identity. OMEGA Fatty Acid
supplements also contain vitamins A and E, antioxidants which help decrease
free radical damage caused by inflammation.
