What are the indications of Omega deficiency in your pet?
Research is showing that omega-3 fatty acids may be helpful in reducing the inflammation associated with arthritis.
Other Inflammatory Diseases:
Other diseases which are accompanied by inflammation such as ulcerative colitis, inflammatory bowel disease, and rheumatoid arthritis may respond to the anti-inflammatory effects of certain fatty acids.
Dull and Dry Hair Coats:
Haircoats which are dull, brittle, and dry often respond to supplementation with essential fatty acids, especially Omega 6. It has also been found that in some cases of seborrhea, there is a deficiency of Omega 6 in the skin.
Hot Spots and Cracked Paws:
Can be signs of multiple omega deficiency and quickly respond to both topical and internal application of this product.
Fatty acids have been shown to slow down the growth of Malassezia pachydermatis, a common yeast infection in dogs and cats, in the laboratory. It is thought, these fatty acids may play a beneficial role in the treatment of this yeast infection on the skin and ears in dogs and cats.
Preventing Atopy (allergies to inhaled substances such as pollens and molds:
Researchers have suggested that fatty acid supplements may be useful to prevent atopy from developing in young animals. The theory is that pregnant atopic mothers have a decreased amount of prostaglandins (a group of hormone-like lipid compounds that are derived enzymatically from fatty acids) in their systems. If the mothers are deficient in PGE, their offspring may be more likely to develop abnormal immune systems themselves. Since Omega 6 conversions cause the release of prostaglandins, giving Omega 6 to a pregnant female in the last month of pregnancy and during lactation may decrease the incidence of the offspring developing atopy.
In addition to their effects on the developing immune system, omega-3 fatty acids are also essential for the proper development of the retina and visual cortex.
Evidence suggests, omega-3 fatty acids may prevent certain cardiac problems as well. Ventricular arrhythmias in dogs have been prevented and high blood pressure has been reduced in dogs supplemented with fatty acids. Animals prone to thromboembolisms may be helped by the anti-clotting effect fatty acids have on platelets.
Omega-3 fatty acids have been shown to slow the development and metastasis of certain cancers.
Plasma Triglycerides and Cholesterol:
Emu Oil has been shown to decrease levels of triglycerides and cholesterol in the blood. Animals receiving retinoid therapy (synthetic vitamin A derivatives) for various skin problems may develop hyperlipidemia.
Which Fatty Acid Does my Dog or Cat Need?
Both Essential Fatty Acids (those which your pet cannot produce on their own, but get from their diet) Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids are essential for health, but many other fatty acids like 7, 9 are also important. Pets with allergic, auto-immune or inflammatory conditions need more Omega 3 fatty acids. Pets that have chronic illness (FIV, FIP, cancer) need more Omega 6 fatty acids.
Additionally cats cannot convert certain Omega 6’s because they lack the enzyme that is required for the conversion; it is therefore essential to supplement cats with a source of gamma linolenic (an Omega 6). Studies have shown that while all of these omega fatty acids are beneficial to the body, an improper balance of omega 6 to 3 can actually throw the body into a pro-inflammatory state. An inflamed system weakens the overall immune system causing the body to become prone to allergies, joint and muscle pain, chronic disease, and low energy levels.
Typical ratios of omega 6 to omega 3 in regular pet diets can be as high as 30-40:1. Newer, high end formulations like Iams, Blue Buffalo, Eukanuba, Hills Science, etc. have much better ratios; but still nowhere near the recommended dietary ratio (for the combination of food and supplements) of between 10:1 and 5:1. The ratio for Mr Squigglemires Multi-Omegas is 1:1 which will strongly counter act the imbalance in your pet’s food.
