How Omega 3 Helps Senior Pets
As pets age, their immune system diminishes which can make them more vulnerable to diseases and infections. Essential fatty acids such as Omega 3 are important to help maintain your pet's healthy brain and heart. Unfortunately, your pet's body does not naturally produce Omega 3. For this reason, vitamin supplements containing Omega 3 should be added to your pet's daily diet to help boost his or her immune system, especially during the senior years. Your older pet needs fatty acids to promote sustained energy, joint health, and better protection against potential diseases. Adding fatty acid supplements with Omega 3 help to:
- Reduce inflammation and pain caused by arthritis
- Restore shiny coat and healthy skin
- Control itching and shedding
- Improve skin, brain, and heart health
- Support the digestive, nervous, and immune systems
Consider these benefits and add an Omega 3 supplement to your pet's diet:
As pets age, their livers may not be able to control proteins from entering the blood stream as well as they used to. Feeding a supplement targeted for liver support like Denamarin can help to heal and even repair liver cell health.
