Key Components of Alaskan Salmon Oil - Omega-3 fatty Acids have long been recognized for their significant health benefits. Studies have determined that these benefits come from the DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid) content of Omega-3 (and to a lesser extent EPA (Eicosapentaenoic Acid)). Long chain Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids from fish oil seem to be especially capable of modifying inflammatory skin responses of healthy dogs. The first sign of an imbalance or deficiency of Omega-3 fatty acids is most likely to show in dogs (and cats) as a dry, dull hair coat or irritated or flaky skin. Studies in dogs have also shown that Omega-3 fatty acids have cardio-protective properties. Note: Plant sources, such as flax oil, do not contain DHA and EPA, but instead contain alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), a precursor to DHA and EPA. This means the body has to convert ALA into DHA and EPA to obtain the benefits, and animals do not accomplish this process efficiently. Omega-6 Fatty-Acids, including the linoleic acid, help maintain the epidermal water barrier function of the skin. This may explain why instances of dry, dull hair coat and scaling, non-pruritic skin disorders in dogs generally respond to the addition of vegetable oils to the diet. Studies in dogs have shown that both serum and cutaneous fatty acid composition can be modified with supplementation of fatty acids.
