Dear Customer,
We're sorry to announce that Animal Essentials is no longer manufacturing their Fish Oil Plus formula. This was a great product and we're sorry to see it go.

As a replacement product, we recommend Only Natural Pet Wild Alaskan Salmon Oil Gelcaps. These gelcaps are rich in essential fatty acids, like Omega-3, to support healthy joints and a healthy skin and coat. Plus, they're made from sustainably harvested, wild Alaskan sockeye salmon. If you were a fan of the Animal Essentials Fish Oil Plus, we're certain that you'll love Only Natural Pet Wild Alaskan Salmon Oil Gelcaps.

Thank you for your understanding,
Only Natural Pet

Animal Essentials Essential Fatty Acids supplement has changed. It is now called Fish Oil Plus and is better than ever!

Introducing Fish Oil Plus! A new & improved essential fatty acid formula with barley grass. The formula includes marine-harvested (non-farmed) fish oil and antioxidant barley grass extract to provide high levels of omega-3 fatty acids to support your pet's skin & coat, and overall health. The unique fish shaped gelcap allows you to serve whole for large dogs, or twist off the tail and squeeze the oil directly onto your pet's food. Almost three times more Omega 3 than their old soft gel formula!

  • Tested for purity by the highest industry standards, against heavy metals, PCBs and other contaminants
  • Fortified with antioxidant barley grass--- a green “superfood”
  • Super convenient, with freshness locked “fishy twist tail” soft gels

Clean and Green
This new product uses ecologically-sustainable fish oil, derived from wild caught sardines, mackerel and anchovies. In the past Animal Essentials had been using menhaden fish oil, but its cost is skyrocketing amidst reports of a declining fishery. Menhaden populations may be dwindling as a result of over-fishing and increased pollution. Not only is this Fish Oil Plus better for your pet in terms of nutritional potency, but it is the right choice for our planet too!

A Better Source of Omega 3 Fatty Acids
As many people know, wild caught fish oils serve as the best sources of Omega 3 fatty acids for dogs and cats. While flax oil is also rich in Omega 3s, it is not a complete source of this nutrient, like many “health gurus” once thought it was. Why? Because regardless of how nutritious flax oil really is, it cannot provide the canine or feline body with gamma linoleic acid (GLA), an important part of the EFA mix that animals need in their diets. And while borage seed oil does in fact provide a free form of GLA, its digestibility and rate of absorption remain questionable. Fact is, dogs, cats and other carnivores are naturally set up to metabolize most of the essential fatty acids they need from meats and animal fats, not from vegetable oils.

A Higher Concentration of Healthful Omega 3
Many customers have been demanding higher concentrations of Omega 3 fatty acids for their pets. Omega 3 fatty acids play critical roles in the regulation of inflammation throughout the body. Omega 6 fatty acids on the other hand, which are typically found in vegetable oils or in the meats of animals that consume primarily grains before slaughter, serve to initiate inflammation. While both sides of this 3+6 equation are necessary to counterbalance the natural inflammatory functions of the immune system, most animals already receive most of the Omega 6s they need from their diets, meaning their stronger supplemental needs rest with Omega 3 fatty acids.

Although praised for effectiveness for nearly ten years, the original soft gel formula delivers a ratio of approximately 1:1, Omega 3s and 6s. The new “Fish Oil Plus” formula offers a 3:1 mix (3 parts Omega 3 to 1 part Omega 6). This is much better for a wider range of animals that suffer flea allergies and chronic skin problems.

Same Freshness-locked Soft Gel Capsule
Animal Essentials new Fish Oil Plus comes in 90 and 180 ct. jars of innovative and practical 1100 mg. “fishy tail” soft gel capsules. This cool little fish shaped caps make feeding clean and easy - just twist off the tail and squirt onto food, or feed the capsule whole, as a chewy nutritious treat!

        Comments about Animal Essentials Fish Oil Plus Dog & Cat Supplement:

        Easy to put on her grain free kibble and she loves them! She swallows it easily; I don't have to twist the tail off or squeeze the oil out because she loves it whole. With her glycoflexIII chews and her trixyn, she is bouncing around like a young dog again!
        I highly recommend this product

            I bought this fish oil for my 11 years-old labrador retriever. She loves it. The cap is small and very easy to chew or swalllow. I will continue buying this product for my dog.
