In Brief: Omega-3 Fatty Acids & Dogs

Omega-3 & omega-6 fatty acids are two types of unsaturated fats. Dogs with allergies and other inflammatory conditions may benefit from adding omega-3s to their diet.  There are a number of supplements on the market especially for dogs or you can try adding fresh fish, flax seeds, or omega-3 eggs to your dog’s diet. Always check with your vet regarding the best dose of omega-3 to meet your dog needs; in some cases over supplementing can lead to a decrease in the vitamin E stores in your pet’s body.
