As pets age, the importance of essential fatty acids and essential amino acids becomes more apparent. Essential omega 3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA, found in fatty fish help to fight degenerative disease due to their anti-inflammatory properties.
What are common degenerative diseases in pets?
– Arthritis and joint pain
– Grey, brittle, uneven or patchy coat
– Neurological Disease
– Poor eye health
– Poor cardiovascular health
While we can’t avoid our pets developing certain degenerative diseases, research has proven that we can considerably elevate their health by providing them with a balanced diet rich in omega 3’s and 6’s.
Joint health: Rheumatoid Arthritis and joint pain are both common ailments in older pets, especially if they have had a prior injury. As a natural anti-inflammatory, marine based omega 3’s help to alleviate joint pain and inflammation. As the inflammation decreases, your pet’s discomfort will too. As well as being effective, NZ King Salmon Oil is becoming a preferred method for treating pets’ arthritis and joint pain as there are no negative symptoms which would normally occur when taking prescription medicine.
Coat health: As pets age, if they are not fed a diet adequate in omega 3’s, and in balance with omega 6’s, their coat may become grey, brittle, uneven or patchy. Our NZ King Salmon Oil has been reported to have changed a customer’s hair from grey to black within months.
Heart health: Evidence is increasing that the consumption of omega–3 fatty acids is also beneficial for dogs with cardiac disease. Omega–3 fatty acids‘ anti-inflammatory and antiarrhythmic effects may be beneficial in managing the loss of lean body mass and arrhythmias that are common in heart failure.
If your pet is suffering from age related disease, chat to your vet about introducing our NZ King Salmon Oil, or other Omega Plus products, into their diet.
