Is There Fish Oil For Dogs?
Fish oil is full of fantastic nutrients that will make your dog’s coat shine as well as keep their eyes, heart, brain and immune system healthy. And the Houndztooth natural pet store has just the thing to make sure your dog is getting enough of this good stuff.
The Houndztooth ‘Clean Feeding’ 100% Australian Salmon Dog Treat is chock-full of natural fish oil (not the processed stuff that’s found in many products) that contains Omega 3 fatty acids, vitamins A, D and B-complex, magnesium, potassium and zinc.
Given your dog is not a marine animal, Omega 3 is not something your pooch produces naturally, but it does need it to include as part of a healthy and balanced dog diet.
Including fish oil in your dog’s diet can help with:
- Eye development
- Reducing blood pressure
- Preventing heart problems
- Improving skin allergies
- Reducing inflammation
- Alleviating symptoms of arthritis
- Maintaining a healthy coat and skin
- Supporting brain health and function
- Boosting your dog’s immune systems
- Helping joint mobility
If your four-legged best friend suffers from itchy or inflamed skin, the anti-inflammatory properties of fish oil will be heaven for your dog as it helps to reduce that soreness (although we recommend using a nice, soothing oatmeal-based Houndztooth shampoo and conditioner too!)
In terms of digestion, fish is also easier to digest, particularly for dogs that are prone to getting an upset tummy, or who suffer from kidney and liver disease.
As fish is generally low in saturated fats and also low in calories, it’s also a tasty treat for dogs that are watching their waistlines.
We know that straight fish oil can be a bit stinky, and most dogs probably don’t need anything else to make their breath even smellier, so we’ve found clever ways to include it in our 100% Australian Salmon Dog Treats that will mean your pup still gets all the goodness of fish oil without the smelly aftertaste.
