Omega-3 Fatty Acids are helpful in many areas:
Skin and hair coat maintenance
Nervous system function
Each 3V Caps HP Snip Tip capsule contains not less than 540 mg of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and 350 mg of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA)
Pateneted High-potency free fatty acid formulation is more efficiently absorbed by the body than other types of fish oil supplements
Increased bioavailability- bypasses digestive breakdown process required of other types of fatty acids, delivering full potential of EPA/DHA each feeding

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.
Other Ingedients: Fish Oil, Gelatin, Glycerin, Water

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.
OTC Fish Oil Supp. with EPA and DHA must be given @ 3x minumum the dose of the 3V HP Caps to achieve the same concentration of Omega 3 f.a.'s and they often don't have added nutrients for skin, joint, kidney, and cardiovascular health as 3V HP do. Others aren't comparable to the total package 3V HP caps are, in total value. Better than Glucosamine/MSM suppl. for joint anti-inflammation.

excellent product has helped my dog with her auto immune disease
Very bad smell by GSD owner10/26/2010
These capsules had a very foul fishy odor. We have used the similar DMV product with no complaint. These were unusable, our dog would not touch the food to which the oil was applied.
I was also disappointed with the customer service response. I got a quick reply from Customer Service telling me to call for a return authorization. The young man who handled the order was snippy, repeatedly referencing the RMA # without explanation. I had to pay postage to return and was very disappointed with product and service.

Our veternarian suggested we use these vitamins for our Labradoodle. Mac no longer has ear infections or dry skin problems. I believe these vitamins have improved his quality of life.
