Omega fatty acids are considered essential to supporting a healthy immune system. They also have been shown to support improvement of hair, coat and skin conditions. Studies have shown that a proper ratio of Omega 6 to Omega 3 is highly beneficial in the support of a healthy coat. The proper ratio of Omega 6 to Omega 3 should be about 5:1 to 10:1. Most inexpensive dog foods contain a 24:1 ratio and more expensive dog foods contain a 10:1 to 7:1 ratio of Omega 6 to Omega 3. Our Omega product was developed with a 2:1 ratio to help balance the ratio of Omega that your dog is getting which in turn supports a healthy hair and coat.
