Why We Add Extra Fatty Acids
In this respect our pets are just like us, they need their diet to provide plenty of Omega 3 & 8 fatty acids to maintain ideal states of health. As 1800PetMeds puts it, “Pets with allergic (flea allergy dermatitis), auto-immune (pemphigus, rheumatoid arthritis), or inflammatory (arthritis, glomerulonephritis) conditions need more Omega 3 fatty acids. Pets that have chronic illness (FIV, FIP, cancer) need more Omega 6 fatty acids.”
That being said, be aware that giving your pet too many supplemented fatty acids outside those they get from their food can lead to diarrhea.
And Natural Vitamin C
Just to supplement your pet’s ability to get vitamin C through metabolism of the glucose in their food for extra antioxidant benefits. Why? Because like us our pets’ bodies are dealing with an increasing amount of oxidative stress thanks to modernization and westernized culture!
