Skin & Coat Condition
The high levels of Omega 3 in fish can help improve some skin and coat conditions that dogs experience through:
Many dog skin conditions are caused by inflammation. EPA & DHA Omega 3s found in Fish4Dogs food and treats are naturally anti-inflammatory, helping improve the condition of the skin by reducing irritation and improving the condition of the coat too.
Hydrating the skin
Fish oils promote the production of sebum, an oily waxy substance that lubricates. With increased levels of sebum, the skin becomes supple and hydrated and the hair is coated with a protective oily layer, giving the coat a beautiful shine. This is something we hear from our customers all the time, they are amazed that within just a few weeks of feeding Fish4Dogs, their dogs coats have noticeably improved, look healthy, shiny and wonderful.
Low levels of intolerance
One of the common causes of skin conditions in dogs are allergies or sensitivities to foods. Wheat and beef are the most common intolerances, with others being pork, chicken, milk and maize. Fish4Dogs is made from ingredients that don’t cause these problems. In Fish4Dogs we use potato and pea as the carbohydrate – and all of these have very low levels of intolerance.
