EPA and DHA are found abundantly in cold-water fish. Flax seed oil contains ALA, another omega-3 fatty acid that requires the body to first convert ALA to EPA and DHA before utilization. Humans and dogs have limited ability to make this conversion, while cats have even less ability to make this conversion. Therefore, supplementation with high-quality omega-3 fish oil is recommended for humans, dogs and cats.

So what does this mean for our pets? Virtually all cats and dogs eating commercial pet food are deficient in Omega-3 fatty acids. Quite a few of the better foods are adding Omega-3 sources such as flaxseed meal. Ground flaxseeds are a source of alpha-linolenic acid, which has benefits in its own right. However, claims that it is a good substitute for EPA and DHA are false. Dogs and cats cannot convert more than 1-2% of it to essential EPA, and none to DHA. (See our article on for details on these oils.) Therefore, our pets still need a direct (animal-based) source of those vital fatty acids. Those sources include:Nordic Naturals uses the same quality standards and the same oils to manufacture both our human and pet products. The result is omega-3 fish oils of industry-leading purity and freshness for your dogs and cats.

For centuries, canine and feline diets consisted of unprocessed foods rich in EPA and DHA, omega-3 fatty acids derived from algae, plants, and fish. However, most of today’s pet foods contain primarily omega-6 fatty acids from vegetable oils. Even the highest quality pet diets rarely contain adequate amounts of EPA and DHA. This results in an unbalanced ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 that can negatively impact the health of our pets.

Most species of algae naturally produce DHA, but very little if any EPA. In order to obtain a better balance, some species have been genetically selected to produce more EPA.(6) However, algal oils may also contain Omega-6 fatty acids, which are undesirable because they tend to promote inflammation. While algal oil is a valid choice for vegan individuals, dogs and cats are not (and should not be vegans), and should get their Omega-3s from an animal source.
