Dogs (just like people) need essential fatty acids, which are good fats like Omega 3 and Omega 6 that help build cell membranes in the body. Without them the body’s chemical structure will not function properly. Omega 6 is one fatty acid that cannot be made by your dog’s body. Therefore, you need to ensure your dog is getting Omega 6 in its diet for optimal health.
When the diet has the proper amount of essential fats, cholesterol levels will regulate, energy will increase, the immune system will function properly, and any dry skin or skin-related conditions will be alleviated.
Problems you may notice that can be attributed to a lack of or reduction in essential fatty acids:
Arthritis or arthritis-like conditions
Behavioral disturbances, disrupted healing process,dry nose
- Eczema like skin eruptions
- Foul odor coming from the coat
- Heart and circulatory problems
- Hindered growth
- Impaired learning abilities or vision
- Kidney or liver degeneration
- Lethargy or lack of energy
- Male sterility
- Regular hair loss
- Vulnerability to infection
