Back to the Sea: Anchovy & Salmon Oil Support a Healthy Heart, Brain & Joints

My senior dog Murphy is 17 years old and he still walks up/down 4 flights of stairs several times a day. In Murphy’s case, I attribute his excellent mobility to the supplements he takes that reverse joint inflammation. Omega-3 fatty acids may help dogs maintain normal cognitive function later in life. In addition, supplementation with omega-3 fatty acids may reverse inflammatory conditions related to the heart, kidneys and joints. Request third-party test results from the manufacturer to verify purity and freshness.

Anchovy and salmon oils can benefit a dog’s brain, heart and immune system. These oils have powerful anti-inflammatory properties that can also benefit a dog’s skin and coat.

Some omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the blood’s ability to clot. This can interfere with wound healing or the dog’s ability to recover after surgery.

Although dogs can make some of these acids themselves, essential fatty acids have to be acquired by dog food or supplementation.

Always check with your vet before changing your dog’s diet or adding supplements.
