The importance of omega-3 and omega-6 in pet food
Updated over a week ago

Proper nutrition is essential for the well-being of our furry friends, and a critical component often overlooked is the balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids in their diet. Edgard & Cooper understands the significance of maintaining the optimal ratio of these essential fatty acids for the health and vitality of cats and dogs.

Understanding omega-3 and omega-6

Omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids are polyunsaturated fats crucial for various physiological functions in pets. Omega-3 fatty acids, such as EPA and DHA, contribute to a healthy coat, skin, and joints, while omega-6 fatty acids, like linoleic acid, play a role in immune function and cell structure.

Benefits of a balanced omega-3 and omega-6 ratio

  • Healthy skin and coat: omega-3 fatty acids contribute to a shiny coat and healthy skin.

  • Joint health: the anti-inflammatory properties of omega-3s help maintain joint health.

  • Cognitive function: DHA is crucial for brain development and cognitive function in kittens and puppies.

  • Immune support: omega-6 fatty acids support the immune system.

Balancing act in pet nutrition

Maintaining the right balance between omega-3 and omega-6 is vital for preventing inflammation and promoting optimal health. An excess of omega-6 relative to omega-3 can lead to chronic inflammation, skin issues, and compromised immune function. Edgard & Cooper ensures their pet food formulations prioritize the correct ratio of these fatty acids.
