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
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 Omega-3 Fatty Acids
VET Solutions Omega-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 Omega-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
Omega-3 Fatty Acid supplements contain high quality fish oil which meets or
exceeds label claims for purity, strength, quality, and identity. Our Omega-3
Fatty Acid supplements also contain vitamins A and E, antioxidants which help
decrease free radical damage caused by inflammation.
