Omega-3's are so often deficient in dogs diets and can result in dull eyes and coat, arthritis and other inflammatory conditions. Where should your dog get its omega-3 oils from? As a fresh food feeding group, our first recommendation is to feed fatty fish twice a week. ✅ Salmon ✅ Sardines ✅ Mackerel ✅ Trout ✅ Herring ✅ Anchovy ✅ Tuna (keep to he minimum due to heavy metal accumulation) ✅ Oysters ✅ Shrimp ✅ Lobster ✅ Scollops ✅ Australian Bass (lower fat) - usually a very affordable fish. ✅ Tilapia (lower fat) ✅ Cod (lower fat) 🥚 Some enriched eggs, avoid caged and barn eggs. 🐠 Fish originate from different destinations and you should choose whatever fish fits within you feeding vision, we have many options. In addition to fatty fish, we also recommend you place the following plant based sources(ALA) on rotation but as their conversion to DHA and EPA is not as great, we would not recommend you rely one one solely, in addition, some do not contain decent amounts so you would have to feed a lot to get any benefit such as seaweed,algae & Phytoplankton. ✅ Chia seeds, ground or soaked ✅ Flax seeds, ground or soaked ✅ Walnuts, ground or soaked (Walnuts can have a black mould risk, so use these as your last option) ✅ Black beans & Kidney beans ✅ Hempseeds, hulled ✅ Spinach ✅ Cauliflower ✅ Blueberries ✅ Seaweed & Algae ✅ Butternut pumpkin, known as Winter Squash overseas. ✅ Phytoplankton ✅ Algal oil (the bio-availability of DHA from algal oil is equivalent to that from cooked salmon) Whilst there are plenty of omega-3 oils of the market, we 𝗱𝗼 𝗻𝗼𝘁 𝗿𝗲𝗰𝗼𝗺𝗺𝗲𝗻𝗱 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝘂𝘀𝗲 𝘀𝘂𝗽𝗽𝗹𝗲𝗺𝗲𝗻𝘁𝘀 𝘁𝗼 𝗺𝗲𝗲𝘁 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗱𝗼𝗴𝘀 𝗺𝗶𝗻𝗶𝗺𝘂𝗺 𝗿𝗲𝗾𝘂𝗶𝗿𝗲𝗺𝗲𝗻𝘁𝘀 of a nutrient unless it is absolutely necessary.

You'll want to ask the manufacturer how they manage oxidation in their product and what testing they have done. ⚠️ If it doesn't contain Vitamin E, you'll need to add it as fish oil depletes Vitamin E ⚠️ May contain high levels of heavy metals such as Mercury, you'll want to ask the manufacturer for a 3rd party heavy metals analysis. ⚠️ Most will probably have a very restricted lipid profile and lack bio-availability. 👉 If you're a follower of my page, you'll know I have a love for a supplement called '𝗔𝗻𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗼𝗹 𝗥𝗮𝗽𝗶𝗱'. This supplement is primarily used by dogs with active joint disease but is also widely used as a preventative for joint disease. Antinol Rapid is a kick ass omega-3 which is a full spectrum omega-3, low in purines therefore safe for Dalmatians, heavy metal safe and highly bio available, it is also c02 extracted. This is a unique and very high grade omega-3 that does not require vitamin E added. It is not cheap like fish oil supplements because of all the above mentioned factors. Antinol Rapid is not designed to replace omega-3's from food and is designed to be used additional to your dogs regular diet BUT if your dog cannot obtain its omega-3 requirement from food then Antinol will cover their needs. Additional uses of Antinol is that it improves train-ability in puppies and can assist on reducing cognitive decline in older dogs. A side effect many people see is that it can improve some skin conditions. There are also many reports of it assisting with other diseases where inflammation is at its core. 📩 If you would like an online supplier of Antinol, shoot me a message.
