Your dog relies on Omega-3 fatty acids for many things, including vision and brain development in young puppies, helping manage inflammation in skin and joints, and a whole host of other physiologic functions.
Because dogs, as well as humans, are incapable of producing Omega-3 fatty acids on their own, they must get them through their diet. The most common fatty acids added to pet food are DHA (Docosahexaenoic acid) and EPA (Eicosapentaenoic acid).
Omega-3 fatty acids are typically found in marine sources. Purina uses fish oil or fish meal as ingredients to supply Omega-3 fatty acids. Some products may state that they have been enriched with DHA or EPA.
