Product: Omega 3 DHA Supplement
What it is: Nutritional supplement for dogs
Manufacturer: Arcanatura LLC (Groton, CT)
DogTipper Review: Arcanatura, a company established by three veterinarians, markets a range of natural, herbal-based pet products aimed at relieving or preventing pet health ailments. All of their products are 100 percent herbal-based.
Arcanatura says that Omega-3 DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) has been proven to be beneficial when added to a canine diet, particularly dogs afflicted by dermatitis, arthritis and older dogs whose brain function has deteriorated due to the aging process as well as for dogs suffering from nervous disorders and anxiety.
Arcanatura’s Omega-3 DHA nutritional supplement is made from algal phytoplankton a source which is safer (for both the animal and the environment) than traditional fish-oil sources.
Since animals can only process minute amounts of DHA, Omega 3 DHA Supplement is designed to be sprayed onto their daily meals with the amount based upon the dog’s body weight according to a formula of:
“A minimum of 15 to 20 mg DHA per kg per day (one pump per 20 kg or 44 lbs dog weight per day) “
The supplement is highly concentrated (40%) and is packaged in a small metal spray canister. The ingredients are listed as:
- Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) 350 mg
- Ecosapentaenoic acid (EPA) 50 mg
The mixture is odorless and tasteless, so should not affect a dog’s eating habits. Between uses, the canister should be stored in the refrigerator.
Price: $16.95, available from Arcanatura’s website and also from Amazon.com.
