    Default Omega 3 Supplements

    Hi

    While Daisy was with the Cavalier Club Cardiologist Mr Swift last week having her heart check he advised supplementing
    with a good Omega 3 ,which we already do thank to Pat's advice previous advise,but he also stressed that the Omega 3 should contain
    certain levels of DHA/EPA .He is going to check it for me and email when found .The Omega 3 I currently give the girls
    is from Puritans Pride and has high levels of DHA/EPA .

    Hi Brian

    When I emailed Simon with a query about Omega 3, he recommended Cardigard. I googled it to discover its levels of DHA/EPA, blinked at the price and then worked out that 2 x 1000mg capsules would give more or less the same amounts (a fraction less, but still high doses) for about a quarter of the price from Simply Supplements. 3 months' supply for both dogs costs just under 10. The capsules are big but both my boys wolf them down with their supper with no problem. Capsules seem to be the best way of giving Omega 3 - apparently the oil starts deteriorating as soon as you open the bottle.

    Hello Kate

    Agreed ,he doesnt say that the quantities have to be in one capsule ,his words were .Cardiguard and Gomega are veterinary supplements
    with the correct balance of EPA and DHA and that a diet that is moderately restricted in sodium and supplemented with Omega 3 fatty
    acids may help reduce progression .

    I was thinking about starting Martha on Salmon fish oil as people say good things about this, and it has omega 3 in it. What do people think? Especially as you Kate say that the oil can start to deteriorate once the bottle is opened. I guess this will apply to the salmon fish oil as well?

    I feel it's a minefield, as I've been told that buying anything in capsules is much more expensive.

    Hi

    Davecav have a look at http://www.healthspark.co.uk/omega-3...FQVTfAodAlJhLQ

    they contain 300 mg in one capsule which is acceptable.

    The fish oil debate makes my head spin....it seems everything I read has a different opinion. I just decided to give human grade capsule. I thought this was better than nothing and it was easy for me.
