Omega-3 Fatty Acids and Their Benefits
Winter weather in many parts of the world can lead to dry, itchy skin for pets. Excessive shedding, scratching and dander production might mean that your pet could benefit from a diet that contains Omega-3. These essential fatty acids are well-known for their ability to help pets with itchy skin and to promote a healthy coat. In fact, clinical studies in dogs determined that those given a diet with higher levels of Omega-3 fatty acids had healthier skin and coat than those dogs fed a more standard diet.
Omega-3 are essential fatty acids, meaning they are not naturally present in the body and must be obtained from food.

One of the best sources of Omega-3 is fish, due to the fact that they contain long-chain Omega-3 fatty acids called EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and are sometimes called marine Omega-3. These long chain fatty acids are abundant in wild fish, such as sardine and salmon.
