Oscar Featured Ingredient: Fish Oil

Fish Oil

This month we are taking a closer look at fish oil; what it is, where it comes from and why we use it. Not only can fish oil be an extra tasty treat for our furry friends, but also it offers health benefits inside and out.

Where Does OSCAR Fish Oil Come From?

OSCAR uses fish oils from sustainably sourced Atlantic Salmon reared in Scottish sea lochs under very carefully controlled, natural and environmentally friendly conditions. The oil is produced from the tissue of Atlantic Salmon without the use of harsh chemicals or high temperatures; in doing this it retains its own natural antioxidant system to prevent it spoiling.

Why Should You Feed Fish Oil

Fish oils are needed to boost the overall condition of our pet’s health and aid in inflammatory issues. Keeping our pet family looking and feeling great is one of many ways to measure their health and well-being. Fish oil is made up of lots of different fatty acids. Two of the main groups of fatty acids are called Omega-3 and Omega-6; both of which are needed to control inflammation in the body. OSCAR diets are formulated with the correct ratio of omega oils to control inflammation and aid in the body’s own healing processes.

Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) Omega-3

DHA is one particular omega-3 fatty acid which has many key roles throughout the body and is vital for healthy body function. DHA is important for brain development and support for young and old, especially helping eye and brain development in puppies and kittens. When parents and their young are fed a diet rich in DHA, an improvement in training has been seen. This is why you can find it in our Healthy Growth and Large Breed puppy foods. Older, more senior, pets can also benefit from the cognitive support that DHA offers. Why not look into our Pinnacle +, High Fibre Lite or Pinnacle of Life options to help support your golden-ager?

How Does It Help?

Fish Oil is packed full of omega-3 fatty acids which help maintain a glossy coat, a healthy clear skin and greatly improved paw-pad health. A deficiency in these helpful fatty acids can result in dry and scaly skin conditions and brittle, dull coats or even alopecia. Let’s not forget that most of our pets do not have the option of footwear, so looking after their paws is very important! Hot or cold weather can take its toll on our beloved pets’ paws – so fish oils are a great way to maintain paw-pad health and reduce the risk of dry skin and cracks. All of our OSCAR foods are bursting with beneficial ingredients like fish oils. Why not take a closer look at our range of Dog and Cat foods? If you want to add a little something special to your furry friend’s meal, why not check out our toppers? Our White Fish Sprinkles are a fantastic way to add a little something extra at meal times.
