Nordic Naturals Omega-3 Pet Dog & Cat Liquid Supplements are considered essential fatty acids (EPA and DHA) because they cannot be made by the body. For optimal health and wellness, EPA and DHA must be supplied by the diet and/or supplementation. EPA and DHA are necessary structural components of cell membranes. These omega-3 fatty acids maintain the cell membrane fluidity and permeability needed for healthy, functioning cells.
EPA and DHA are found abundantly in cold-water fish. Flax seed oil contains ALA, another omega-3 fatty acid that requires the body to first convert ALA to EPA and DHA before utilization. Dogs have limited ability to make this conversion, while cats have even less of this ability to make this conversion. Therefore, supplementation with high quality omega-3 fish oil is recommended for dogs, and cats.
