Molecularly distilled from Norwegian sardines, anchovies and mackerel.
This blend of the highest purity Norwegian marine oils has been molecularly distilled which reduces further any potential contamination with mercury, lead or other marine pollutants.
Its high potency concentration of EPA and DHA and very agreeable taste to dogs and cats allows it to be administered in higher dosages which are recommended in all of the current published Veterinary research studies. It contains nearly 50% lecithin, which is a type of fatty substance called a phospholipid that is very important in maintaining skin, liver, neurological and immune system health. The lecithin in this formula also helps to emulsify the fish oil fatty acids, thus allowing them to be better absorbed by the bowel.
EPA and DHA have been found to help support an animal's normal inflammatory response, as well as induce apoptosis in neoplastic cells and enhance the effectiveness of chemotherapy and radiation therapy. Veterinary studies have found a number of evidence-based applications for fish oils when given in high enough doses for at least 3 months. Daily supplementation with fish oil is recommended as a part of any pet or human wellness program by the Holistic Cancer Vet.
Recommended dose for standard applications is 1/2 teaspoon for each 11 pounds of body weight daily. This provides the recommended 90 mg of EPA+DHA/kg of body weight daily which can help to support an animal's normal unflammatory response.
Support for patients with cancer has been recommended at 30 mg/kg (13.6 mg/pound) of body weight daily of the DHA in the formula.
This is the same as 1 teaspoon of this formula for each 26.4 pounds of body weight daily.
Shake the bottle well before storing in the refrigerator to blend its ingredients, and shake well each time before administration. Or, if product thickens in the refrigerator, keep in a cool dark cabinet. Always gradually introduce fats and oils into an animal's diet to avoid any possible reaction to the increased administered fats. Start with 25% of the recommended dosage and over 5-10 days gradually increase to the full recommended dosage.
If your pet's stools soften or it loses its appetite or starts to vomit, discontinue administration, wait three days and then start back at a lower dosage. Please let Holistic Cancer Vet know if your pet is having a reaction to the oils in this formula. Pets with a history of pancreatitis should avoid this dietary supplement.
WHY SUPPLEMENTS FOR YOUR PET?
Just as you take vitamins to help you live a more healthy life, so too will your pet benefit from supplementing with the right herbal and nutritional products.
This is no substitute for a complete and balanced diet, but so many foods these days are overly processed. A little dietary supplement might just add that extra push your pet needs to be its best.
