Fish oil supplements are in heavy demand these days, as fish oils contain high levels of EPA and DHA Omega-3 essential fatty acids -- excellent for healthy skin and coat, eyes, joints, brain development and cardiovascular function.
What type of fish oil supplement is healthiest and most effective? Dr. Michael W. Fox, veterinarian (website) and author of over 40 books and the syndicated column, Animal Doctor was online 9/3/08 answering questions:
I get tired of plugging fish oil at every turn, but it IS a miracle supplement. Not oil from farmed salmon -- full of dioxins--and other fish oils as from tilapia do more harm than good because the Omega 3 and 6 ratios are way off. Nordic Naturals cod liver oil, up to a tablespoon a day, plus turmeric, up to 1 gram daily, in food or oral capsule, may help your poor cat.
Nordic Naturals cod liver oil for dogs and cats is an exceptional quality cod liver oil derived exclusively from wild Arctic Cod. The important Omega-3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA, support healthy skin, coat, joints, heart and the development and maintenance of the brain and eyes. All natural vitamins A and D support healthy vision, immune function, and healthy bones. Nordic Naturals products are distilled for purity and exceed all international standards for purity and freshness (Norwegian Medicinal and European Pharmacopoeia1).
Nordic Naturals are available in liquid and capsule form at Amazon and Only Natural Pet Store.
Interestingly, Science News reports on a 4-year study where researches found that wolves, direct ancestors of dogs, would rather eat salmon.
Although most people imagine wolves chasing deer and other hoofed animals, new research suggests that, when they can, wolves actually prefer fishing to hunting. The study shows that when salmon is available, wolves will reduce deer hunting activity and instead focus on seafood...
The authors explain that the wolves' taste for fishy fare is likely based on safety, nutrition and energetics. Darimont said, "Selecting benign prey such as salmon makes sense from a safety point of view. While hunting deer, wolves commonly incur serious and often fatal injuries. In addition to safety benefits we determined that salmon also provides enhanced nutrition in terms of fat and energy".
Dr. Michael Fox recommends the cod liver oil over the salmon for your pets, but it is a decision each pet owner must make for themselves. If you are interested in trying them out, Wild Alaskan™ Salmon Oil Supplements are readily available for dogs and cats.
