Ascenta Canine Omega 3 EPA & DHA Fish Oil Supplement features advanced processing and effective antioxidant protection, for the purest fish oils for your dog. Omega-3 fatty acids are "good fats" that are essential for optimal health. Like humans, animals must obtain omega-3 from the diet as it is not produced in the body. EPA and DHA are the active forms of omega-3 required by the body to perform vital functions. Insufficient omega-3 intake can have a significant impact on overall health. Omega-3 is beneficial to maintain: joint health, skin and coat health, renal function, growth and production, heart health, and immune system health. An all-natural smoky meat flavor is added to the Canine formula to increase its sensory appeal.

Typically, the diet for your dog is augmented with kibble made from cereal- type grains, and vegetable oils which are very high in omega-6 fatty acids and extremely low in omega-3. This has led to a deficiency in omega-3 fatty acids, where the ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 may be as high as 1:15 instead of the optimal 1:1.
Fish oil is nature’s richest source of EPA and DHA
Botanical sources of omega-3 such as flax do not contain EPA and DHA, instead they provide its precursor ALA. Mammals have a genetic make-up that severely limits the conversion of ALA into EPA and DHA thereby making plant- based omega-3 far less potent and more difficult to metabolize.
Only the highest quality ingredients derived from sustainable natural sources. You only get what you put in, which is why Ascenta uses the highest quality ingredients. Great emphasis on sustainability is expected, to ensure that what’s here today isn’t gone tomorrow. Ascenta fish oil is derived from sustainably harvested wild fish stocks that are closely regulated and monitored by government authorities. We have progressively worked toward diversification to avoid putting pressure on any one resource. A strict policy against the use of unsustainable omega-3 sources is constantly maintained. Specifically, species like shark, krill, tuna or cod are not used.
