Winter weather in many parts of the world can lead to dry, itchy skin for pets. Excessive shedding, scratching and dander production might mean your dog or cat could benefit from supplement containing omega-3’s. These essential fatty acids are well-known for their ability to help pets with dry, itchy skin and to promote a healthy coat. In fact, clinical studies in dogs determined that those given a diet with higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids had healthier skin and coat than those dogs fed a more standard diet. Sardine oil is rich in omega-3 fatty acids and a good addition to your pet’s diet.
Sardine Oil Tops Other Omega-3 Sources
Sardine Oil is derived from harvested wild sardines (sardinus pichardus) which are small planktivorous pelagic fish. This brilliant gold oil is by far the most popular oil used in dietary supplements as a source of the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA. It contains more EPA and DHA than salmon oil and has naturally lower levels of environmental contaminants.
Sardines do not have the heavy metal build-up often found in other fish eaten as food. This is due to the natural habitat of sardines, which is in colder waters found deeper below the surface. Also, they are a small, immature species with a short lifespan, so less time to accumulate toxins in their bodies.
Sardine Oil Benefits Pets in Other Ways
This healthy fish has other benefits to your pet’s health. Sardine, and oil made from it, contains lysine. Lysine is an essential fatty acid that aids in repairing soft tissue damage caused by infection or disease. It also supports the healthy functioning of most other organs and systems in the body.
Sardine also contains CoenzymeQ10, an antioxidant which promotes a strong immune system and healthy circulation. Plus, it is also a wonderful source of naturally-occurring calcium and Vitamin D, making nutrients more easily absorbed and utilized by your pet’s body. Also found in sardine are nutrients such as Vitamins A, B, and K, and the minerals iron, magnesium, phosphorus, and potassium. These great nutrients support energy levels, reproductive health support and joint building.¹
