Wild Alaskan Salmon Oil
Salmon oil is an absolute essential supplement to our dogs and cats diet. Sadly animals raised today are not pasture raised so they can lack the essential Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids.
Salmon in particular contains a high concentration of the unsaturated Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids, also called the "essential fatty acids". Dogs and cats require just as much Omega 3 fatty acid as Omega 6 fatty acid.
Normally, the animals receive a fair amount of Omega 6 fatty acid through their daily diet, but none of the important Omega 3 fatty acids. The health enhancing effects of the Omega 3 fatty acids depend on the two fatty acids: EPA and DHA, which are found in salmon in large amounts.
These two fatty acids are found only in fish and not in any other natural product. These essential fatty acids are life-sustaining nutrients for every organism, just like proteins and carbohydrates. They are necessary to strengthen the immune system and to keep the body's cells elastic.
Symptoms indicating a deficit of the essential fatty acids are: a weak immune system, metabolism malfunction, allergic illness, dry skin, itch and rash, skin inflammation and dandruff, broken hair and thick skin, reduced kidney activity and liver problems, and hampered growth.
