Five benefits of feeding fish oil to your senior dog
Fish oil has been proven to have numerous benefits for dogs, particularly senior dogs. Most of us know that fish oil (or more precise, the essential fatty acids EPA and DHA in fish oil) are great for our own health. But did you know that these fatty acids are also very beneficial for your dog’s health?
Here are some of the key advantages of adding a good quality fish oil into your senior dog’s diet:
- Joint health
As dogs age, they may develop joint problems such as arthritis, which can cause pain and limited mobility. Fish oil contains omega-3 fatty acids, which have anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce joint inflammation and improve joint health
- Heart health
Fish oil also has heart-healthy benefits for senior dogs. Omega-3 fatty acids can help improve heart function and heart circulation, reducing the risk of heart disease in older dogs.
- Cognitive function
As dogs age, they may experience cognitive decline, which can lead to memory loss, confusion or other cognitive problems. Fish oil has been shown to improve cognitive function and reduce the risk of heart disease in older dogs
- Skin and coat health
Fish oil can help improve the health of a dog’s skin and coat. Omega-3 fatty acids can help keep the skin moisturized and reduce the risk of skin problems such as dryness, flaking and itching.
- Eye health
Omega-3 fatty acids can also help improve eye health in older dogs. Fish oil can reduce the risk of age-related eye problems such as cataracts and dry eye.
Adding fish oil into your senior dog’s diet is a simple but effective way to improve their overall health and well-being. It can have a positive effect on their joint health, heath health, cognitive function, skin and coat and eye health. Balanstri not only contains the human grade fish oil but also antioxidants and vitamin D. In this way we protect the fragile fatty acids until the last drop!
