Free fatty acid
Not All fatty acids are the same.
Omega-3 fatty acid supplements made from fish oils are commercially available in three distinct forms and vary greatly in bio availability.
TRIGLYCERIDE: The vast majority of Omega-3 fish oil products are in the triglyceride form. These triglyceride Omega-3 fish oils contain as little as 30% EPA and DHA per gram.
ETHYL ESTER : This type of fish oil is "esterfied" using the solvent ethanol and represents approximately 15-20% of all Omega-3 fish oil sold. While ethyl ester Omega-3 fish oil provide approximately 50% EPA and DHA per gram, they are the most difficult to absorb into the blood stream.
FREE FATTY ACID : The free fatty acid form is the result of a unique patented process that removes non-beneficial components of fish oil, thereby providing more EPA and DHA per gram. The free fatty acid form has been clinically proven to be more efficiently absorbed than the ethyl ester and triglyceride form.
Why are free from fatty acids the best?
Because of their chemical complexities triglyceride and ethyl ester forms of fatty acids require breakdown by the pancreatic enzyme lipase into free fatty acids before absorption can occur. Free fatty acids are absorbed without metabolism resulting in enhanced bio availability in the digestive process. Enhanced bio availability ensures that all pets receive their full potential for supplementation.
The best supplement to give your pet by Kristal01/30/2008
I have been given my 12 year old shih tzu 3v caps in his food for almost a year and ever since then I've noticed such a difference in his mood and energy level. He's happy, healthy and as energetic as a puppy. He also has major allergy and skin problems and I feel a lot better giving him omega 3 as an anti-inflammatory than harmful steroids or antihistamines. Plus it's good for his heart, brain and renal health. I believe the 3v caps along with regular exercise has played a big part in his youthful energy.
The product is priced well and in a convient form but its unknown how well it works on shedding due to using it a short time.
check out the levels of EPA and DHA under the More Info tab and you'll see that the snip tip contains almost twice the amounts--which my vet says is great. I discovered this by chance.
No more scratching! by Kathleen Binek07/22/2008
These caps have made a significant improvement in my dogs skin allergies. She hardly ever scratches anymore! She is 8 years old and has had skin allergies since birth. The high potency has made a big difference over regular strength.
Didn't Work for my Dog by Volunteer from Denver, Colorado03/22/2013
I wished so much that this product was the answer for my Yorkie-poo's itching but no such luck. I've tried everything, including lab tests which determined nothing. I hated to skew the ratings by giving only 1 star but this product simply didn't work.
I had three dogs with severe allergy problems, including itching, and loss of hair. When I added 3V caps to their diet on a daily basis (along with some medicine from the vet when outbreaks were severe) their skin and coats improved dramatically. Then two of the dogs no longer had allergy outbreaks and one only has them seasonally and they are much less severe. Their coats are beautiful. I highly recommend 3V caps.
Worth every penny by jmacj from Sacramento , CA01/30/2010
I have a pitbull mix(sweetest dog on the planet) who had skin issues. The hair follical gets infected then clumps of hair fall out. I would have to give antibiotics to correct the problem. This happened every year. Since I've been giving him 1 cap a day, he hasn't had any problems in 3 years. His coat is beautiful and he just seams healthier.If your loved one has skin issues this is the stuff.
Great product by Miguel03/20/2009
I have a 4 year old white boxer who gets really bad skin irratations on his feet and inner thighs. Since we have been using this product the fur on his feet has begun to grow back and his skin is no longer red. the product has also helped keep his coat soft.
HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!! by DJG - Mt. Airy, MD12/11/2008
My vet recommended for my 2 Golden Retrievers. He gives his Goldens 3V caps every day. Has made a remarkable difference. Coats have beautiful shine, less itching & flaky skin. I would purchase these before vitamins which are already in their top brand food & b/c it's good for their hearts, etc. Entirely Pets has best price you'll find!
Just Good For Him by Kevin Moore09/03/2008
I give two capsules daily to my 1 yo Great Dane and 1 daily to my 13 yo black lab. It is not just good for their skin - but - just like humans - good for their heart and circulatory systems.
On top of that - both their coats are smooth and shiny. They get many compliments at the dog park!!
