What is Fish Oil?

Fish Oil is derived from marine animals and is a rich source of omega 3 fatty acids.

Omega 3 fats are considered ‘good fats’ and can be found in oily fish such as tuna, salmon, herring, sardines and mackerel, which are common sources of fish oil supplements. Fish oil supplements contain two essential fatty acids: EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). EPA and DHA can only be made in a limited capacity in dogs and humans and are even more poorly synthesised in cats. In order to maintain optimal health and wellness for our animal companions, these essential fatty acids must be consumed through diet and/ or supplementation.

Frequently asked questions

Buying human fish oils for your pet may seem logical, however dogs have different daily intake requirements for recommended formulations of EPA and DHA.

Using human fish oil for dogs can cause the following issues:

  • Correct dosing is difficult and overdosing can cause digestive issues (i.e. diarrhoea and vomiting).
  • Requires greater volume to be used to meet a dog’s daily requirements, which can become expensive.
  • Difficult to administer to dogs as capsule and flavoured liquid varieties are not palatable for pets.
