Omega 3 found in Fish4Dogs food can help improve some joint conditions in dogs.
Joint conditions are particularly common in older dogs. The older dogs get, the more susceptible to joint problems they become. The Omega 3 found in Fish4Dogs food can help improve some joint conditions through:
Reducing joint inflammation
Omega 3 is a natural anti-inflammatory. The EPA and DHA found in marine sourced Omega 3, can help alleviate the symptoms of joint pain by reducing joint inflammation.
Reducing cartilage breakdown
Fish are rich in cartilage, a natural source of Chondroitin and Glucosamine which, like Omega 3, helps to reduce cartilage breakdown and inflammation.
There is also evidence to suggest that Omega-3 fatty acids can reduce cartilage breakdown by switching off the aggrecanases and other collagen-degrading enzymes that break down joint cartilage. So a fish rich diet can help keep those joints nice and supple.
