Omegas 3, 6 and 9 contain essential fatty acids that are an important part of a well balanced diet to help keep your pets in optimum health.

Omega oils can be naturally found in a range of fish and in different oils like olive and flaxseed oil. These days a large majority of dog and cat food contains added omega oils which is usually displayed on the packaging. Most pets regular diets do not offer enough of the omega oils to be beneficial and therefore a supplement may be necessary, particularly in pets that have arthritis or skin or coat issues. There are a number of different omega supplements available including powders, oils, chewable tablets and topical treatments that you apply directly to the skin. Taking a supplement that contains the combined Omegas 3, 6 and 9 rather than each omega supplement individually is more beneficial as it ensures that your pet is receiving the correct ratio and optimal levels of each fatty acid.
If your pet has any pre-existing health issues you should discuss using an omega supplement with your veterinarian. If you would like advice on what product might suit you pet best please contact the very helpful customer service team at vet-n-pet DIRECT.
