Effektri Omega-3 Canine is a high quality nutritional supplement for your dog. It consists of a mix of essential Omega-3 fatty acids from fish oil, supplemented by antioxidants and vitamin D.
For centuries, canine diet consisted of unprocessed foods rich in EPA and DHA, Omega-3 fatty acids derived from algae, plants, and fish. However, most of today’s pet foods contain primarily Omega-6 fatty acids from vegetable oils. Even the highest quality pet diets rarely contain adequate amounts of EPA and DHA. This results in an unbalanced ratio of Omega-3 to Omega-6 that can negatively impact the health of our pets.

In the wild, dogs are primarily consuming animal prey when available. When this is scarce, wild canines feed on vegetation to support their nutrition. In nature, wild canines achieve a balanced diet which includes the important health promoting Omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA . Domesticated dogs depend on us to provide them with a nutritious, balanced diet to ensure optimal health throughout all stages in their life – growth, reproductive and adult (including senior dogs).
Commercial pet foods – whether dry, canned, or raw – typically contain higher amounts of Omega-6 fatty acids from meat products and vegetable oils and inadequate amounts of Omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA from fish oil). As a result, many dogs suffer from skin problems, infections and other ‘allergic’ reactions. The right fatty acid balance in the body is essential to keeping dogs healthy and active.
For an optimal health for your dog, it is important to achieve a more balanced ratio of dietary Omega-6 to Omega-3 fatty acids in the dog’s total diet. Supplementation with Omega-3 fatty acids is recommended to achieve the correct Omega-6 to Omega-3 fatty acid balance in the body of your dog. Omega-3 contributes to flexible cell membranes and has an anti-inflammatory effect at the cell level, and thus throughout the body.
It is important to consider the source (fish derived vs. plant derived) and the individual amounts of EPA and DHA in the total diet since each fatty acid performs a distinct, yet mutually supportive role in promoting overall dog health. Fish oil provides dogs with a direct source of Omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA .
How does Effektri Omega-3 Canine work?
The right balance between Omega-3 and Omega-6 increases the flexibility of the cell membranes, which allows better blood flow to tissues and therefore also improves the health of skin and muscles. In addition, in the conversion of Omega-3 from the cell walls, anti-inflammatory substances are created, whereas an excess of Omega-6 results in more pro-inflammatory substances. These cause infection like symptoms that your dog will feel as pain or tiredness in its muscles and joints.
An imbalance of Omega-3 and Omega-6 can manifest itself in restlessness, behavioural problems, muscle symptoms, a scaly or dull coat, and a reduced resistance to disease. Effektri Omega-3 Canine is a good way to restore the balance, thus improving your animal’s overall health.
