Your Pet's Skin
Skin is the largest organ of your pet's body; as such it performs several important functions. Many elements are important to maintaining the health of your pet's skin including routine cleaning, grooming and a well balanced nutritionally complete diet. A well balanced diet must contain adequate quantities of high quality protein, fatty acids, vitamins and minerals to preserve the integrity and function of the skin. Pets that have diseases affecting the skin may need supplements of one or more dietary components to help the skin function more normally.
Allergies and Skin
When your pet has allergies, he or she is more likely to itch and scratch than to develop runny eyes and nose as you do. Substances that cause allergies (allergens) may be inhaled, eaten or absorbed onto and through the skin. Many of the same things that you are allergic to can cause problems for your pet, too. These include grass, trees, mold, dust, dander or certain foods. Allergens from any source cause immune cells to release inflammatory substances into the skin. These substances cause your pet to itch and scratch and may contribute to chronic skin and ear infections making your pet uncomfortable and unhappy.
VET Solutions AllerG-3 Fatty Acids
VET Solutions AllerG-3 Fatty Acid supplements contain omega-3 fatty acids derived from fish oil. These fatty acids help decrease allergy related itchiness in the skin by interfering with production of the inflammatory substances that cause the itching. The omega-3 fatty acids in VET Solutions AllerG-3 Fatty Acids supplements, EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), are found only in cold water fish and are not commonly used to make dog food. Other omega fatty acids such as omega-6 and omega-9 fatty acids are plentiful in dog food and do not, therefore, need to be supplemented. In fact, the presence of too many omega-6 fatty acids may actually promote inflammation. VET Solutions AllerG-3 Fatty Acid supplements contain high quality fish oil which meets or exceeds label claims for purity, strength, quality, and identity. Our AllerG-3 Fatty Acid supplements also contain vitamins A and E, antioxidants which help decrease free radical damage caused by inflammation.
