Your dog needs non-plant Omega-3. 你的狗需要非植物的Omega-3.


你的寵物的皮膚和毛髮健康的營養補充劑通常含有人體必需的脂肪酸,一般是混合的 Omega-3-6-9.

這些混合補充的 問題是今天大多數的狗和貓,尤其是那些食市面售的寵物食品吸入過多的 omega-6 而並沒有足夠的omega-3脂肪酸。 廉價的糧食的原料成分為玉米,植物油(玉米,大豆,紅花,油菜)和從雞和肉的脂肪組合,使寵物食品有很多 omega-6 脂肪酸。

此外,在大多數商業寵物食品的 omega-3 來自植物或植物來源, 及食品製造過程通常會破壞這些成份。

因此對於絕大多數的狗和貓最好的必需脂肪酸補充品是一種魚類omega-3補充品 (磷蝦油或魚油,包括鮭魚,魷魚,沙丁魚和鳳尾魚)。 植物來源的油,包括亞麻和橄欖油,不含有 EPA 和 DHA,但有生物可用度較低的 ALA。

" Skin and Coat Supplements

Dietary supplements for your pet’s skin and coat health typically contain essential fatty acids,  often a blend of omega-3s, -6s and -9s.

The problem with many of these blended supplements is that most dogs and cats today, especially those eating commercially available processed pet food, get an overabundance of omega-6s and not enough omega-3s. A combination of inexpensive grain and corn-based ingredients, vegetable oils (corn, soy, safflower, canola), and fats from chicken and meat create pet food packed with omega-6 fats.

In addition, the omega-3 fats used in most commercial pet foods come from plant or vegetable sources, and the manufacturing process typically destroys what value these ingredients have.
So the best essential fatty acid supplement for the vast majority of today’s dogs and cats is an omega-3 supplement made from marine oils – krill oil or fish oil, including salmon, sardine, squid and anchovy. Vegetable-derived oils, including flax and olive oil, do not contain EPA and DHA, but rather the less bioavailable, inactive precursor form, ALA. From Dr. Karen Becker
