Nordic Naturals Pet Cod Liver Oil, 237ml
Nordic Naturals Pet Cod Liver Oil Details
Nordic Naturals has updated Nordic Naturals' Pet Cod Liver Oil product labels (8 and 16 fluid ounce sizes). In addition, we are adding the Pet Cod Liver Oil, 2 fluid ounce size product for cats and small breed dogs. The size of the dog that correlates to the feeding instructions has been indicated on the front panel of the label. This ensures use of the total amount of oil in the bottle within the 3-month expiration date in most cases. For the 2 fluid ounce product size, there will be some oil left over past the 3-month expiration date for the lower weight cats and small breed dogs. All three-product sizes are the same product formulation.
- Pure, fresh 100% wild Arctic cod liver oil
- Supports brain and eye development and maintenance
- Supports heart health
- Available for medium- to large-breed dogs
- Can be added to food, or taken by itself
Nordic Naturals Pet Cod Liver Oil Has Omega-3 Fatty Acids
Omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA are important fatty acids for humans and their dog and cat companions because they cannot be made in the body. The only source of EPA and DHA for these species is through the diet and/or supplementation.
Daily supplementation with Omega-3 Fatty Acids helps support optimal health for your pet companion.
EPA and DHA are necessary structural components of cell membranes. These omega-3 fatty acids maintain the cell membrane fluidity and permeability needed for healthy, functioning cells.
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.
The omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA) found in fish oil support:
- Cellular health
- Immune system health
- Skin and coat health
- Joint health
- Heart health
- Brain development and maintenance
- Eye development and maintenance
Nordic Naturals Pet Cod Liver Oil has Vitamin A
Vitamin A is a fat-soluble and essential vitamin in the diets of dogs and cats, and is found naturally in cod liver oil.
Vitamin A is important for normal vision, immune function, fetal development, growth, and cellular differentiation (important for maintaining healthy skin cells, corneal cells, and other cells lining the respiratory, gastrointestinal, and reproductive tracts).
