You may have heard other pet owners talking about omegas and wondered what they could do for your dog. Did you know that the right omegas can help your dog maintain good joint, skin, fur, heart, and even brain health for years to come? Read this blog post from Nutrolin to discover how you can get more good years for your dog with the right omegas.
OMEGA FATTY ACIDS FOR YOUR DOG
When pet owners and vets talk about omegas, they talk about fatty acids. Omega fatty acids are essential for the health of your dog in many different ways, but the body can synthesize only some types of omega fatty acids from other types of fat. Dogs can synthesize omega-9, but the only way they can get omega-3 is from their diet. Unfortunately, most dogs don’t get enough omega-3s from their diet alone, preventing them from enjoying the benefits of these essential fatty acids. That’s where supplements come in!
Reduce the Effects of Aging with Omega-3
How can omega-3 fatty acids help your ageing dog? By controlling inflammation. Chronic inflammation can cause a wide range of other health problems and has been linked to everything from diabetes to cancer to cardiac disease.
A supplement containing omega-3 fatty acids, such as Nutrolin® Senior, can help slow down the effects of ageing by controlling inflammation and oxidative stress. If you start giving your dog an omega-3 supplement in their middle years, it can help keep them functional and full of energy for as long as possible while supporting their mobility, brain function, joints, and heart health.
Help Your Dog Enjoy Healthy Joints with Omega-3
As dogs get older, some will develop degenerative arthritis. Dogs with this condition can also benefit from omega-3s in combination with joint nutrients like glucosamine, chondroitin and MSM, all of which are found in Nutrolin® Hip & Joint.
The combination of nutrients supporting joints and omega-3 fatty acids found in Nutrolin® Hip & Joint can help your dog regain lost mobility and the love of exercise. The Omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil (including ETA, EPA, DPA and DHA) work by suppressing joint inflammation, helping your dog to run and play without pain again. According to a University of Helsinki study from 2013, Nutrolin® Hip & Joint is an effective treatment for your dog’s joint health.
