What is the Best Fish Oil For Pets?

Omega-3’s from fish oil are very beneficial in controlling inflammation and for supporting overall heart health. So, there are a lot of formulas on the market and from many different sources. Here is what we think is important when choosing a fish oil supplement for our dogs and why Celavin™™ fits the bill.

Fish oil formulas can vary greatly in price. Why? The process of refinining the oils and removing contaminants is part of the equation. The other part of the equation is source of fish, low quality fish = low quality oil.

Source of Fish

Target a source that is rich in the Omega-3’s EPA and DHA. Salmon, tuna, sardines and anchovies are the richest sources, however, smaller sources such as sardines, are more desirable as they generally contain less contaminants to begin with.

Larger species, such as salmon, contain a very high level of mercury and other toxins. This can be overcome in processing but often companies don’t take that step, especially in pet products. For this reason, salmon oil (ie: "Wild Salmon") products are typically much less expensive for pets. Celavin™ is derived from sardines and anchovies, and thus is rich in EPA-DHA. It is also concentrated so that the other less desirable fatty acids are removed. This makes the formula highly targeted (and effective) at delivering the Omega-3’s and their benefits to the pet.

Purity and Refinement

The importance of purity in fish oil cannot be overstated. Many low price products just don’t take the steps necessary to remove the toxins and impurities found in fish. There are multiple steps in a true quality process.

Types of Refinement Processes:

  • Vacuum (molecular) distillation
    Removes contaminates.
  • Winterization/deodorization
    Removes other impurities and enhances the sensory characteristics of the oil to make it more palatable.

Celavin™™ goes through both these processes as it is produced in Norway at one of only four pharmaceutical licensed facilities in the world. It is™ not only subjected to rigorous processes, but also goes through the scrutiny of post-manufacturing testing for EPA/DHA content and for impurities. It has one of the highest and purest concentrations of EPA/DHA on the market for dogs and cats. This gives us the confidence that when it is administered to pets they will reap the ultimate benefits of Omega-3s. 

Convenience

Celavin™ comes in an easy to use liquid, just pour it on your pets’ food, they will love it, and you will love what it does for them.
