Default Adding DHA Omega 3 Fish Oil to Your Dog's Diet is Brain Healthy

Pet guardians interested in supporting and protecting the brain health of four-legged family members should insure their pets are eating a diet rich in DHA, an omega-3 essential fatty acid, and antioxidants.

A 2012 study showed that feeding weaned puppies foods high in DHA improved their cognitive, memory, psychomotor, immunologic, and retinal functions.

The best way to insure your pet is getting bioavailable DHA is to supplement with a fish body oil like krill oil (our favorite), or salmon, tuna oil, sardine, squid, or anchovy oil.

Studies also show that antioxidant-rich diets for pets support brain function as well, especially as an animal ages. Antioxidants get rid of toxic free radicals floating around in your pet's body before they can harm healthy cells and tissue.

Since most commercially available pet foods contain synthetic vitamins and minerals, for optimum nutritional value, your pet should get antioxidants primarily from a species-appropriate, nutritionally balanced diet.
