Fish Oil and Healthy Pets
research studies, fish oil has shown positive benefits in helping pets with
disease. Fatty acids are among the most commonly used nutritional
supplements used in treating dogs and cats. Fortunately, they have been used
successfully long enough that most conventional veterinarians include their
usage in the treatment of at least some diseases. Though some pet diets may
include Omega-3 fatty acids, virtually none include satisfactory amounts of
the most important Omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA. Many pet foods contain
primarily Omega-6 fatty acids from vegetable oils resulting in a highly
unbalanced ratio of Omega-6s to Omega-3s. Research has shown that a ratio of
Omega 6 to Omega 3 of 5:1 to 10:1 is optimal for dogs and cats and therefore
supplementing with a high quality Omega-3 fish oil supports pet health.
Omega 3 oils support heart, vision and joint health, provide important
nutrients for proper immune function, and nourish the skin and coat. First
suggested for use in treating allergies in pets, they are now advocated in
cases of kidney disease, elevated cholesterol, and arthritis as well.
Veterinarians are discovering that fatty acids can be valuable for a variety
of conditions. Fish oil supplementation may be helpful for pets with
inflammatory diseases including allergies, arthritis, kidney disease, heart
disease, and cancers. Pets with any type of inflammatory disease may benefit
from fish oil supplementation. In general, more severe disease requires
doses higher than those commonly recommended.
Your dog is at risk for
heart problems if his teeth develop a lot of tartar and gingivitis. The
bacteria in the plaque and tartar can enter the bloodstream and attach to
the heart valves. This can cause valve problems and congestive heart
failure. This is one of the most important reasons to take care of your
Fish oil is very effective in some pets with
allergies and skin disease. It is easy to administer (via gel caps or
liquid) and can reduce the amount of corticosteroid or antihistamine needed
to control itching. Most pets take either form well. For pets that are
difficult to "pill," the liquid form is quite popular. Owners of dogs and
cats 20 pounds and under find the liquid form more cost effective than the
large bottle of fatty acid capsules that we prescribe. The response is
variable in other diseases (such as kidney disease) but fish oil appears
effective in research studies. In pets with some types of cancer, fish oil
has slowed down the growth and spread of the cancer. While more studies are
needed on other types of cancer, the general recommendation is to add fish
oil to the diets of all pets with cancer.
As with other supplements,
the use of fatty acids often allows doctors to lower the dosages of drugs
such as corticosteroids or antihistamines. Choosing a high quality Omega-3
fish oil supplement with exceptional purity and freshness, as well as, high
levels of Omega-3s is key to supporting pet health.
Fish Oil for Pets Benefits
Now it's time to give our pets the benefits of the tremendous healing
properties of fish oil.
We know intuitively that our pets enrich our
lives, so it is not surprising that a growing number of scientific studies
are demonstrating the positive effects that animals can have on human health
and development. Here is just a partial list of the health benefits of pet
ownership, as reported by the Delta Society, a non-profit foundation that
promotes research on the bond between humans and their animals:
Pet owners have lower blood pressure. (Friedmann, 1983, Anderson 1992)
Pet owners have lower triglyceride and cholesterol levels than non-owners. (Anderson, 1992)
Pet owners have better psychological well-being. (Serpel, 1990)
Seniors who own dogs go to the doctor less than those who do not. In a study of 100 Medicare patients, even the most highly stressed dog owners had 21 percent fewer physician contacts than non-dog owners. (Siegel, 1990)
Contact with pets develops nurturing behavior in children who may grow to be more nurturing adults. (Melson, 1990)
Having a pet may decrease heart attack mortality by 3%. This translates into 30,000 lives saved annually in the U.S. alone. (Friedman, 1980)
Children's cognitive development can be enhanced by owning a pet. (Poresky, 1988)
Children owning pets are more involved in activities such as sports, hobbies, clubs or chores. (Melson, 1990)
Children exposed to pets during the first year of life have a lower frequency of allergic rhintis and asthma. (Hesselmar, 1999)
Autistic children with pets are more highly socialized and are less self-absorbed. (Redefer, 1989)
Given the strong emotional bonds between humans and animals, it is not surprising that many of us will do
almost anything to secure the health and well-being of our pets. According
to estimates from the most recent National Pet Owners’ Survey, Americans in
2005 will spend $17 billion on veterinary care and medicine, and those costs
are rising sharply.
It is an accepted medical fact that the same
treatments are often found to be equally effective in both humans and
animals. In fact, the US Food and Drug Administration reports that, since
the passage of the Animal Medicinal Drug Use Clarification Act of 1994
(AMDUCA), it has been legal for veterinarians to treat pets with human drugs
that have not been approved for animals. Fish oil, of course, is not a drug.
Adding it to your pet’s food may very well be one of the best things you can
do to help your animal companion to fight infections and to defend against
debilitating chronic ailments. With fish oil, you will also know that the
benefits you see are real.
How Quickly Will My Pet Benefit From Omega
While the pet begins benefiting quickly, you may not
notice a difference for 3-4 months. The pet’s body will change from the
inside out—first the individual cells, then tissues, then organs. Gradually
you’ll notice the coat and skin become more radiant. When you see this,
you’ll know the internal organs, including the kidneys, liver, heart, and
brain, are also experiencing more radiant health.
Because fats are an
expensive component of pet foods, many commercial foods do not contain high
levels, especially of the Omega 3 fatty acids. Most pets benefit from fatty
acid supplements. We recommend
Life's Abundance Ultra-Pure Omega 3 Fish Oil.
Fish Oil Purity
We have no one but ourselves to blame for the
toxic contaminants found in fish oil. These toxins include mercury (from the
burning of coal), PCBs (used in electrical insulation), and dioxins (the
active ingredient in defoliants used in the Vietnam War). Although
production of PCBs and dioxins has long been banned, they rarely break down
and thus accumulate in the marine food chain that ends with fish. These
toxins are known carcinogens and neurotoxins. In fact, the levels in the
Eskimo population, who consume large amounts of fatty fish rich in EPA and
EPA, are well above the safety standards set by the World Health
Organization (WHO), and recent studies indicate that they are approaching
the upper limits of safety in the Japanese population.
Here lies the
dilemma - how to remove these toxins to obtain all the tremendous health
benefits of EPA and DHA. The solution was the development of a new
manufacturing process for producing ultra refined EPA/DHA concentrates.
Did You Know...
that if you place the fish oil
you're currently using in the freezer, and it freezes, it's NOT ultra pure?
Life's Abundance® will NOT freeze...this is how ultra-pure and refined our fish oil
If you or someone you know is
using a fish oil that is not tested by an independent laboratory for
concentration, purity and stability, it's buyer beware. Ask the manufacturer
of that fish oil what it is trying to hide. It's one thing to print
pharmaceutical-grade on a label, it's quite another to actually make a truly
"pharmaceutical grade ultra refined" fish oil.
Fish Oil Manufacturing
It's very difficult to remove the toxins out in fish oil. That's why
most fish oils sold in health-food stores and supermarkets should be
considered the "sewer of the sea." Since the contaminants in fish are
oil-soluble, all the toxic contaminants are concentrated in the crude fish
oil. Not a very appealing thought if you are taking fish oil for its
"health" benefits. Obviously, all crude fish oil is highly contaminated. If
you do some minimal processing, you can get rid of the mercury, but not the
PCBs and dioxins. This minimally processed product is what you get when you
purchase inexpensive brands of fish oil. In other words, you will also be
ingesting a good dose of PCBs and dioxins. Slightly more expensive fish oils
are given a "touch-up" via crude distillation to remove some of the
cholesterol and slight amounts of the remaining toxins, but the EPA and DHA
concentration is low. Therefore, to get an adequate dose of these critical
long-chain omega-3 fatty acids, you have to consume large amounts of fish
oil and, thus, large amounts of toxic contaminants. If you break apart the
fatty acids to make ethyl esters, then it is possible to concentrate the
oils to higher levels, but the PCBs and dioxins still remain.
solution to this apparently "no-win" situation is true molecular
distillation that removes the ethyl esters of EPA and DHA from the fish oil,
leaving behind the toxic contaminants. This finally produces rise to ultra
refined EPA/DHA concentrates like Life's Abundance.
