Product of The Week: Cod Liver Oil
Have you ever stopped to think about the good nutrients cats and dogs got from their prey before they were domesticated? Omega-3 essential fatty acids (EPA and DHA) are one key thing that our pets may be lacking in. Often the pet foods that are sold only contain omega-6 fatty acids from animal fats and vegetables and are not sufficient in their omega-3 fatty acids. Luckily, owners can supplement their pet’s food with the essentials it is lacking.
We are excited to be carrying Nortic Naturals Cod Liver Oil. This is one of the leading suppliers of exceptional quality omega-3 fish oils worldwide. The oils are derived from wild, sustainable fish and will benefit any kind of cat or dog diet.
Cats: 1/4 teaspoon
Dogs 0–20 lbs: 1/4 teaspoon
Dogs 20–55 lbs: 1/2 teaspoon
Dogs over 55 lbs: 1 teaspoon
Remember it is very important to refrigerate this product after opening. If it is not properly refrigerated it can go from a fantastic antioxidant for your pet to an oxidant, doing the opposite of what is intended.
