Are you looking for a versatile supplement that can make your pet’s coat healthier and improve the symptoms of several other conditions? Then you should take a closer look at fish oils.
Omega-3 fatty acids are precursors to a group of hormones known as prostaglandins. These prostaglandins are important for moderating the effects of inflammation. In other words, fish oils can naturally reduce the level of inflammation in your pet's body.
That is why fish oils are often recommended for patients with allergies, a condition that tends to produce a lot of inflammation. By reducing this allergic inflammation, fish oils can consequently also reduce how itchy and reactive pets are in response to their allergies.
Fish oils don’t limit their anti-inflammatory effect to just allergies—any inflammatory disease may benefit from them as well, which is why fish oils may be recommended as part of the treatment plan for problems such as arthritis, kidney disease, heart disease and certain types of cancer.
On top of all these uses, fish oils may also help improve dry skin, giving your pet a healthier coat. Speak with your veterinarian to find out if your pet may benefit from fish oil supplementation.
