Grizzly Salmon Plus Omega 3, 6, & 9 Supplement for Cats and Dogs - 8oz
All-natural salmon oil
Grizzly Salmon Oil™ is derived only from wild Alaskan Salmon. The salmon oil naturally retains its balanced blend of valuable fatty acids and is further protected by adding all-natural Rosemary Extract. It contains inherent antioxidants and traces of vitamins that naturally occur in the salmon. Our all-natural product will not interfere with your dog's intake of vitamins from other sources.
The right Omega-3 fatty acids are from fish!
Grizzly Salmon Oil supplies a daily supplement rich in EPA and DHA - the right omega-3 fatty acids. The recommended daily dose of Grizzly Salmon Oil yields approximately 500 to 2500 milligrams of these important fatty acids, depending on your dog's weight. Your dog's metabolism uses these nutrients immediately without any prior conversion. Plant-based omega-3 fatty acids, such as those found in flax seed, must be converted by your dog's body prior to use. This conversion is very inefficient and may result in as little as 5 % - 15 % of the fatty acids being actually metabolized.
Omega-6 fatty acids
When given to your dog as directed according to weight, Grizzly Salmon Oil delivers approximately 50-300 milligrams of linoleic acid, the essential omega-6 fatty acid. Other omega-6 fatty acids are present in only very small amounts. These naturally occurring acids are like a double-edged sword. On one hand, linoleic acid is essential for your dog because it cannot be produced by your dog's own metabolism. On the other hand, large amounts of unbalanced omega-6 fatty acids have been proven to lead to a higher risk of inflammatory diseases, arthritis stiffness and a weak immune system.
How Grizzly Salmon Oil™ is produced
Grizzly Salmon Oil is gently extracted in a state-of-the-art production plant that handles nothing but high quality, salmon-based products. A totally enclosed and continuous in-line extraction process ensures the oil is kept away from air until it is pumped into your pet's food bowl!
The origin of Grizzly Salmon Oil™
Grizzly Salmon Oil is a value-added product originating from a co-production with other salmon seafood products. This co-production is the basis for Grizzly Salmon Oil's unique high quality and freshness - its extraction enjoys the same high standards imposed by the seafood processing plant. Grizzly Salmon Oil's source fish are wild Alaskan Salmon.
Strong heart and long life!
Grizzly Salmon Oil™ supplies a range of different omega-3 fatty acids, including the long chain Omega-3 fatty acidsEPA and DHA.
As dogs and cats age, they face increased risk of heart problems, stiffening joints and loss of zest and vigor. These health risks may be reduced by a diet consistently supplemented with readily accessible, long chain omega-3 fatty acids found only in cold water fish oils like e.g. Grizzly Salmon Oil. These omega-3 fatty acids are essential building blocks all dogs and cats need for maintaining a balanced metabolism. Scientific studies also show these fatty acids help maintain the immune system.
Skin and coat
Grizzly Salmon Oil™ helps keep your dog or cat's skin healthy! Healthy skin generally results in less itching and less shedding.
The health condition of your dog or cat's skin and coat is influenced by the
contents and balance of fatty acids in the diet. The ratio of omega-3 to omega-6
fatty acids in the diet of your dog or cat is important in order to avoid
degenerative conditions like hot spots, a dull coat and inflamed, dry and itchy
skin. Scientific research supports the optimum ratio of fatty acids in the range
of 1:3 to 1:6 (omega-3:omega-6). Grizzly Salmon Oil™ has a ratio of
approximately 8:1 (omega-3: omega-6) and is thus ideally suited for bringing
commonly seen ratios in generic and premium dog and cat foods of between 1:10
and 1:20 in line with the target ratio of around 1:5.
The omega-3 fatty acids also help counteract negative effects of allergic dermatitis by producing specific eicosanoids, which are known to reduce and control skin inflammations. Regular use of Grizzly Salmon Oil attributes to a lustrous, shiny coat and gives your dog or cat the appearance of overall good health.
flavor dogs and cats love!
Grizzly Salmon Oil™ has the scent of the ocean and the rich taste of fresh fish. Most dogs and cats will love this rich taste from the very beginning -- You may even notice a healthy "addiction" to Grizzly Salmon Oil!

Omega-3 and Omega-6 Fatty Acids
For many years, pet owners have given fatty acids to their cats and dogs to change a dull, dry hair coat into a more glossy one. More recently, veterinarians have found that fatty acids play important roles in other areas of skin and coat health such as allergies, the control of inflammation, and the function of other body organs in cats and dogs.
Fatty acids are specific types of polyunsaturated fats.
The two main classes of fatty acids are the omega-3's and the omega-6's. These classifications are based on molecular characteristics. You may also have heard about omega-9 fatty acids. Omega-9's actually decrease the concentrations of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids in the blood and skin.
Animals can produce some of the fatty acids they need, but not all of them. Those fatty acids which they can not produce themselves, but must be obtained through their diet, are called 'essential' fatty acids. Interestingly, what is 'essential' for one species of animal is not necessarily essential for another. For example, the fatty acid arachidonic acid is essential for cats, but not for dogs.
In some disease conditions, certain enzymes which convert one fatty acid to another may be deficient, or the animal may not be able to adequately absorb fatty acids from the intestine. In animals with these conditions, some of the 'nonessential' fatty acids actually become 'essential,' that is, required in the diet, and in higher amounts. Deficiencies of fatty acids may also occur with the use of fat-restricted diets in some overweight animals.
Fatty acids in foods are subject to degradation. Overcooking can destroy fatty acids. Improper storage or a suboptimal amount of antioxidants in dry food may result in rancidity and a subsequent deficiency in fatty acids.
