    VF Omega-3 is a fish oil supplement for dogs and cats formulated to provide omega-3 fatty acids that support pets’ critical body systems.


    It delivers concentrated fish oil in softgel form to bridge cats’ and dogs’ nutritional gap and help support:

    • the pathways that regulate joint health
    • heart health
    • canine healthy skin and coat
    • the central nervous system
    • brain development of puppies and kittens

     

    What are omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids?

    Omega-3s and omega-6s are fatty acids that are responsible for supporting a number of critical body systems. However, omega-6s are often consumed in higher amounts than omega-3s. Omega-3s are commonly associated with fish consumption, but modern aquaculture produces fish that are lower in omega-3s than wild fish.1  This has the potential to create nutritional gaps, which can be improved through supplementation.

     

    Why are omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids important for cats and dogs?

    Studies have shown that consuming a balanced amount of Omega-6/Omega-3 fatty acids can provide a number of health benefits.2-5 However, many dogs and cats tend to consume diets that are higher in omega-6 fatty acids. This is partly because grains and oils rich in omega-6s have been largely used in feed for farm animals, which has led to production of meat and eggs rich in omega-6s and poor in omega-3s.6 In addition, modern aquaculture produces fish that contain lower levels of omega-3s than wild fish.

    Seems good, but cats don’t like it

    I try to avoid having to pill my cats, unless absolutely necessary. And if I prick the capsule and squirt it on their food, they won’t eat it. And if I put the liquid in a syringe, they don’t like it either, although that is the only other option I can think of and the only one to have any success.
