What is Pet Skin Irritation?
Skin irritations and disorders are the most common pet ailments. A healthy pet has bright, odorless hair and skin, free of debris, grease and irritation. A pet's skin may be irritated if it has a rash, is dry and/or flaking, greasy, red, or itchy.
The causes can be numerous from food allergies to fleas and ticks and other irritants. If your pet vomits after a meal, this is an indication that he may have a food allergy. Pet owners should pay close attention to the pet's environment such as its bed or sleeping space which should be cleaned or changed frequently.
Omega 3 Skin & Itch is a human grade, high potency DHA and EPA supplement for pets derived from 100% cold water fish caught in the North Atlantic. Anchovies, mackerel, herring and sardines are sustainably caught using dolphin-friendly fishing techniques. The oils are molecularly distilled at a low temperature to preserve the potency. There are no additives or preservatives. The finished product is subject to testing for mercury and other heavy metals and toxins including PCB's and dioxins.
Clinical veterinary research has shown that EPA and DHA available from fish oil provide the necessary nutritional support for excessive shedding, dry skin, constant licking and scratching and dermatitis. These fatty acids are bio-available immediately for a fast improvement in your pet's coat and skin. Omega-3 fatty acids are also used to support joint comfort and mobility, cardiovascular health, a healthy nervous system and brain, and good immunity.
