There are many benefits in using salmon oil in your dog’s kibble and pet treats. For years, experts have researched these benefits, but what exactly are they? Continue reading to learn more.
Fish oils are derived from the fleshy fat of such fish as mackerels, sardines, and herrings. The oil is extracted then purified into an elixir as a healthy additive or topper.
One of Plato Pet Treats most valuable products is our Alaskan Salmon Oil. Salmon oil is a type of fish oil that is derived from the flesh of salmon. Salmon oil contains high levels of omega-3 fatty acids, which are beneficial for the health of your dog’s skin, coat, and joints.
Healthy Skin and Coat
Salmon oil helps keep a dog’s coat shiny and helps reduce shedding and inflammation. A daily regime of fish oil keeps your pet’s coat soft and supple and helps you better care for your pet’s fur. The oil is made up of two components consisting of omega-three fatty acids: eicosatetraenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). EPA and DHA are important for maintaining a healthy coat, skin, joints, heart, and kidneys. They also play a role in cognitive function and reducing inflammation.
Joints & Tendons
Salmon oil is a natural lubricant that allows your pet’s joints and muscles to function more efficiently and with greater fluidity. This makes it especially good for dogs that have arthritis issues.
Salmon oil has been shown to improve brain function and help with both cognitive function and ward off dementia in older dogs.
At Plato Pet Treats, we are proud of our Alaskan Salmon Oil Topper and also of our single-ingredient fish products, Baltic Herring and Baltic Sprat which both include Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids as part of their ingredients. We invite you to give our pet treats a try and let us know how these oils have helped your pet flourish.
The Plato Pet Treats Cycle of Virtue
The Cycle of Virtue can be defined like this: a chain of events in which one desirable occurrence leads to another which further promotes the first occurrence and so on resulting in a continuous process of improvement. We love our pets and want to provide the best we can for them, and when we bless them in this way, they continue to bless us with a better quality of life and increased lifespan. This is a beautiful thing.
