What are the indications of Omega deficiency in your pet?
Arthritis: 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 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 deficiencies and quickly respond to both topical and internal application of this product.
Yeast Infections: 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.
Eyes: 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.
Heart Problems: 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 thromboembolism may be helped by the anti-clotting effect fatty acids have on platelets.
Cancers: 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 a chronic illness (FIV, FIP, cancer) need more Omega 6 fatty acids. Additionally, cats cannot convert certain Omegas 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 counteract the imbalance in your pet's food.

Fatty Acid Profile Mr. Squigglemires Emu Oil and Camelina Oil Combined:
For years my Black Lab had itchy skin and would scratch the skin bare. We used antihistamines, apoquel worked very well, but we preferred not to give him medication so tried mr. Squigglemire's.
My dog is off daily Apoquel; on rare occasions, during particularly allergic times, I give him Apoquel to calm his skin down but Mr. Squigglemire's has worked wonders for my dog's skin and coat as well. I highly recommend this product.
My new "rescue" has developed a sheen in his coat and it is really growing. He is starting to look like an entirely different dog! Also he is about 15 lbs. and we are leash walking 3 miles a day @22 minutes/mi. on average (using a sport app).
I was a little unsure about trying this at first since the other reviews were from dog owners. I have a cat that is allergic to fish protein, but fish oil (from fat) is OK. The problem is that Neither of my 2 cats will eat food when I put any kind of fish oil on it. They LOVE this oil in their food, and the results are already showing. The allergic cat who is getting older had been having trouble getting up and downstairs, but she's now bounding up the stairs with no problems at all. Their coats look much better, too! You just got yourself a regular customer!
... the emu oil that I order for myself. I also love the Mr Squigglemires emu oil for Diesels and Pickles. They love it and their skin and fur looks very healthy. Thank you for the added treat in my package .
I don't always write reviews, but I want anyone with a dog struggling with alopecia to know that THIS WORKS! There is not much information on treating alopecia, except the option of melatonin. I tried melatonin for months without any success. I found very few stories on emu oil linked to hair growth for dogs, but the ones I did find amazed me, so I had to try it. It's only been a little over 2 months and my dog's coat has grown back almost completely. I haven't seen his coat in almost 2 years (when he got clipped and the hair no longer grew back). I feed it daily and rubbed it on him the first month. I also use emu oil shampoo and spray. This has been a miracle my pup and I are so thankful for!

Before Emu oil, or specifically Mr. Squigglemire, our eight year old lab, Hurley, with hip displasia had so much trouble getting up from a laying-down or sitting position. We had tried glucosamine pills and noticed very little improvement; but a friend had tried emu oil and it worked for their lab, so we tried it. We put Mr. Squigglemire on Hurley's food twice a day and it has made a noticeable difference in his ability to move and be the playful lab he was and still wants to be. :)
I love the emu oil for my bloodhound. He has very dry and flaky skin. I bath him once a week as well. He gets the most relieve with Mr. Squigglemire.
My last order one of the bottles was broken and half of the oil leaked out. I have never had this happen before. This stuff is too expensive to receive only half a bottle.
Hey Denise - Sorry to hear about the bottle leak. We'll be sure to get a new bottle out to you tomorrow. USPS has been great delivering our products - but every once in awhile - it happens. Thanks for your review. Dee Dee Mares 8/3/16
My 80lb pitbull Rocky salivates everytime I bring out the multi-omegas. In addition to putting it on his food I have also used it as a topical treatment for his various skin issues (he has dry patches as a result of having mange as a puppy). I would highly recommend this as a dietary supplement.
