Traditionally, Norwegians used cod liver oil for its nourishing and healthful benefits. It is an ideal source of the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA, as well as naturally occurring vitamin A. Nordic Naturals Pet Cod Liver Oil continues this tradition, providing your dog with these same important nutrients.
Nordic Naturals derives their Pet Cod Liver Oil exclusively from wild Arctic cod (Skrei), from the Norwegian Sea off the Lofoten Islands near Bodø, Norway. Due to the seasonal variations of food supply for wild Arctic cod, the amount of vitamin A fluctuates with each batch. Please refer to the product label for the current amount of vitamin A in the product.
IMPORTANCE OF OMEGA-3 FATTY ACIDS
- Omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA are important for humans and their dog and cat companions, because they cannot be made in the body.
- The only source of EPA and DHA for these species is through the diet and/or supplementation.
- Daily supplementation with Omega-3 Fatty Acids supports optimal health for your pet companion.
- EPA and DHA are necessary structural components of cell membranes. These fatty acids maintain the cell membrane fluidity and permeability needed for healthy, functioning cells.
- EPA and DHA are found abundantly in cold-water fish.
- Flax seed oil contains ALA, another omega-3 fatty acid. However, the body must first convert ALA to EPA and DHA before use. Humans and dogs have limited ability to make this conversion, while cats have even less ability to transform ALA. Therefore, supplementation with high-quality omega-3 fish oil is recommended for humans, dogs and cats.
The omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA) found in fish oil support:
• Cellular health
• Immune system health
• Skin and coat health
• Joint health
• Heart health
• Brain development and maintenance
• Eye development and maintenance
