Research has suggested supplementing pets with Omega 3 can reduce dose of NSAIDs. Further study has demonstrated Dietary fish oil may exert beneficial effects on synovial fluid in joints, results suggesting beneficial effects on synovial fluid MMP and TIMP-2 equilibrium in the uninjured stifle of dogs with unilateral CCL injury. Feline degenerative joint disease (DJD) is also common and dietary modulation with Vetenox might be one method to use to improve mobility in cats with DJD-associated pain. Vetenox is specially formulated to contain ingredients clinically proven to help joint diseases including Omega 3 and rosehip seed oil which may protect cartilage by modulating cytokine, and chemokine expression .*1234
Skin and coat
Dietary factors have a major role in the maintenance of healthy coat and skin, and are significant in the etiology and therapy of certain skin diseases. Much interest has been paid to the therapeutic value of polyunsaturated fatty acid supplements in the management of dermatologic conditions associated with hypersensitivity reactions or keratinization defects. These studies have generally yielded disappointing results, which may reflect shortcomings in the design of some trials. Nevertheless there seems to be clear benefits in high dose (n-3) fatty acids in the management of pruritic skin disease. There is also evidence that specific dietary (n-6):(n-3) fatty ratios are useful in the dietary management of inflammatory diseases. Although results of controlled clinical trials are awaited, the argument exists that it is both the absolute amount of (n-3) fatty acid intake and the (n-6): (n-3) ratio that is responsible for potential benefits to skin health *56
Dietary intake of long-chain Omega 3 fatty acids can have a positive affect on numerous processes in the body, including cardiovascular, neurological and immune functions, as well as cancer and may be considered for use as an adjunct in small animals to maintain the health of many body systems. It is also very important to maintain a balance between omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids in the diet. Many researchers believe an imbalance is a significant factor in the rising rate of inflammatory disorders both in humans and animals. Vetenox provides a natural solution to supplement small animals with complete Omega stability and balance 7 8 9.
