Adding Omega-3 fatty acids to your pet’s diet are a safe, easy, inexpensive way to promote a shiny coat, healthy skin and decrease inflammation, improving overall health. Omega-3 fatty acids include Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA’s), Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA’s) and Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA’s). Many breeds, including Schnauzers, have known skin conditions and allergies; Omega-3’s are a great way to improve both. They also provide vitamins A and D and lower the risk of heart disease and cancer. Before adding to your pet’s diet, consult with your veterinarian. Below are places to buy essential fatty acids for your pets online. If you choose to use Omega-3 gel caps, you can break them and mix right into your dog’s food.
