  • The science-backed benefits of fish oil for dogs of all ages:

    Supplementing improves skin, behaviour, brain and heart health; makes puppies smarter; and reduces inflammation and epilepsy.

    Dogs need Omega 3 and Omega 6 which can be found in fish oil to make essential fatty acids (EFAs) to maintain healthy cells. Essential fatty acids must be consumed through diet.

    The trouble is the heat used to process many dog foods inactivates the delicate beneficial compounds such as resolvins, docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and the EFAs.

    Even if a food contains omegas, the remaining ones can easily break down once the bag is open!

    That’s why we supplement our dogs; the oil we choose to stock is extracted from Scottish Salmon and micro-filtered to provide high levels of EPA and DHA; produced using a centrifuge method which means it is gently extracted and doesn’t damage the oil structure. The oil is then micro-filtered and the container is sealed with the addition of vitamin E as an antioxidant. (When giving fish oil, it is important to be sure the product contains antioxidants (typically vitamin E) to protect the lipids from oxidation).


    Why supplement your dog with fish oil supplements for Omega 3 Fatty acids? (At any age)

    We all want to raise healthy and happy canine companions.

    Adding a dose* to their diet can unlock incredible health benefits for your dog.

    *Canine Arthritis Resources and Education recommend dosing at 100 mg/kg

    Use our dogs as an example:



    Recommended Daily Dose (100 mg/kg)

    Total ml of Finer by Nature oil which has 1060mg of omega fatty acids per 4ml

    Thea the Spaniel


    1140 mg


    Sully the Collie


    1820 mg



    The maximum daily dose is 310 x (BW in kg)0.75 so we’d be safe to round those numbers up to the nearest measurement on the cap of the salmon oil bottle (e.g. 5 & 7.5ml)
