OmegaPro was scientifically formulated to provide natural, high-quality ingredients containing essential long chain Omega fatty acids which evidence-based research has shown contributes to and supports the immune system and overall health. The Omega-3 fatty acids alpha-linoleic acid (ALA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) are important fatty acids for dogs and other animals because EPA and DHA cannot be made in the body, and ALA from the diet can be converted to EPA and DHA. This is why EPA and DHA are essential – they ultimately need to be obtained from the diet.
OmegaPro is intended as a daily feed supplement to provide essential Omega fatty acids and their precursors.

Long Chain Omega-3 Fatty Acids in Animal Nutrition
There are two families of essential fatty acids: omega-3 fatty acids and Omega-6 fatty acids.
They are termed “essential” because they cannot be produced by the body, and must therefore be obtained from the diet. By supplementing with a good source of Omega-3 fatty acids such as fish oil or flaxseed, will provide a good ratio of these essential fatty acids.
An increasing number of people are experiencing the health benefits of adding Omega-3 oil to their diets. What some may not realize is these fatty acids are equally important for the overall well-being of the furry members of their family.
For cats and dogs, the omega-3s (EPA) and (DHA) play an important role in various body functions. Studies show DHA is especially important for kittens and puppies, as it is crucial for the development of tissue in the brain and retina of the eye. Research has shown DHA improves cognitive, memory, psychomotor, immunologic and retinal functions in growing dogs.
The highly-processed commercial diets a majority of pets are fed often contain an unbalanced ratio of omega-6s to omega-3s. Ideally, Omega-3 and Omega-6 fats should be consumed in a more balanced ratio. Even pets on the highest-quality raw or home-cooked foods can benefit from having their diets supplemented with omega-3 oils.
One of the most widely recognized benefits of omega-3s is Joint health. EPA and DHA have been shown to help maintain overall joint health.
A growing pool of evidence indicates omega-3 can also be a factor in issues of aggression in some dogs. A recent study found that, compared to normal dogs, aggressive dogs showed lower DHA blood levels and a higher Omega-6 to Omega-3 ratio.( Re S, Zanoletti M, Emanuele E. Aggressive dogs are characterized by low Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid status. Vet Res Commun 2008;32:225-230.)
OmegaPro provides all the proven health benefits that Long chain Omega-3 fatty acids contribute to the health and well being of your dog or cat.
Omega-3 used in this formula is in a triglyceride form and sourced from accredited marine sources. This is the only efficient source of EPA and DHA that helps support the whole metabolic process of the body.
These Omega-3 fatty acids are referred to as polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), these cannot be made by the body naturally, so have to be supplemented through diet or supplementation, such as OmegaPro.
