There is a balance between having the right ratio of Omega 6 fatty acids and Omega 3 fatty acids. The typical human diet of Americans contains way too much Omega 6 fatty acids and not enough Omega 3 fatty acids. This is bad and can cause various issues … which is why so many people take fish oils as a supplement.
Our dog’s health is no different. Most dogs are getting too much omega-6 fatty acids and not enough omega-3’s. Omega 6’s are common in most grains as well as meat from corn-fed animals or grain-fed animals. It also comes from refined oils.
1 cautionary note: you need to be careful to not over-give your pets too much fish oils, or you off-balance the ratio to having too many omega 3’s compared to omega 6’s. So don’t just grab the fish oils that you might be taking for yourself and start giving them to your Yorkie!
