Salmon oil is high in Omega 3 fatty acids (good fats) in particular EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid).
These Omega 3 fatty acids that may offer your dog the following benefits:
Boost your puppies development
Do you want your puppy to reach his full potential? Feeding salmon oil can help your puppy to become the healthiest and smartest dog at the dog park. Introducing your puppy to salmon oil from 8 to 52 weeks may help boost his muscle growth, eyesight, memory, problem-solving, and immune system. Brain development as a fetus may also be boosted by feeding a pregnant mother salmon oil. Continuing to feed after birth will also benefit puppy development as puppies drink the mothers milk.
A healthy, shiny fur
Have you ever noticed how other dogs have glossy hair that looks like it came from a shampoo ad? Meanwhile, your pup has a dull coat? Salmon oil could be the answer. Omega 3 has been linked to an improved shine in dog coats and may even prevent hair loss.
Goodbye dry, itchy skin
Does your dog suffer from dry, flaky skin due to allergies or flea bites? Doggie dandruff could be a thing of the past. Salmon oil may help improve your dog’s skin problems due to its high Omega 3 content.
Treat arthritis in senior dogs
Is your elderly dog suffering from arthritis? Standing up from a resting position can be painful. Salmon oil may allow your dog to comfortably stand and also improve your old pup’s ability to walk. One of the most popular uses of salmon oil is as a joint supplement.
A strong and healthy heart
Is your dog at risk of heart disease or arrhythmia? Salmon oil may prevent an early death in heart related health conditions and is often recommended for breeds with heart problems, like Cavalier King Charles Spaniels.
Salmon oil and the omega 3 fatty acids it contains have been linked to slowing down the growth of certain cancer tumors.
