Omega-3 fatty acids such as DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid) and EPA (Eicosapentaenoic Acid) help reduce inflammatory skin reactions in dogs. These two important fatty acids are found in high levels in fish oil. Only omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil have been shown to reduce inflammation.
Omega-6 fatty acids, including linoleic acid, help maintain the epidermal water barrier function of the skin. This may explain why instances of dry, dull hair coat and scaling, non-pruritic skin disorders in dogs generally respond to the addition of vegetable oils to the diet.
Vitamin A is a fat-soluble antioxidant needed for maintaining normal skin, preventing eye problems and enhancing immunity. A deficiency can cause skin lesions, including dryness and cracking of the skin.
Vitamin E is a fat-soluble antioxidant that protects cell membranes from oxidation by free radicals and promotes healthy skin and hair.
Best Use - For dry skin and lusterless coat and immune support.
