Fish oil benefits
The core ingredient in our 'Omega' range is a blend of fish oil comprising of Sardine, Anchovy, Herring, Mackerel & small fish from the Tuna family (not endangered bluefin), sourced from the North Atlantic & Arctic oceans, which has been tested for toxins and found to be low in mercury, PCBs and dioxins. Our fish oil is all human food grade and of premium quality.
Fish oil is a polyunsaturated fat which is classed as a ‘good fat’ and is an excellent and rich source of Omega 3 essential fatty acids (EFAs) which are crucial in order for the body to perform key biological functions. Animals (humans and dogs!) are unable to produce EFA’s themselves so it is vital to add these beneficial fats to our diet. Fish oil consists of ‘long chain’ EFA’s in the form of EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) & DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). These types of EFA’s are different to flaxseed oil which consist of ‘short chain’ EFA’s in the form of ALA and LA. Omega 3 in the form of EPA & DHA supports the health of the brain, eyes, heart, kidneys and immune system. It is recommended that both short and long chain EFA’s are included in a dogs diet for total health and wellness.
Any oils that have been added to dog food in the manufacturing process will lose their nutritional value due to being subject to heat, light and air. The same applies when oil is added to food that has been prepared and frozen ready for later use. Oils need to be taken in their ‘raw’ state and as such, added to food, just before feeding.
More information on the importance of EFA's
EFAs are fat carried nutrients that every mammal needs to maintain healthy function and structure of smooth muscle organs (heart), to protect and build liver cells and to maintain healthy skin, coat and build strong joint tissues. They have also been linked to retinal development and are responsible for the synthesis and modulation of prostaglandins - chemicals that serve as mediators of various psychological processes in the body. Prostaglandins act upon smooth muscle contractions of the heart and digestive tract, the initiation and regulation of inflammatory responses and inhibit excessive clotting of the blood.
This means that if your dog doesn’t receive sufficient amounts of EFAs, critical body functions can be severely disrupted. Your dog can develop chronic skin and coat disorders, digestive problems, cardiovascular disease, degenerative eye disease and allergies. Even dogs not showing any signs of disease will usually show dramatic benefits of an EFA enriched diet very quickly. A shinier, softer coat, less shedding, healthier skin, fewer fleas and better tolerance to allergens. With this in mind, it is easier to understand that EFA’s shouldn’t be regarded as a supplement but as a necessity.
Fish oil by itself can oxidise and go rancid quite quickly. However, because we add herbal tinctures to our oils, they help to maintain its freshness. This is certified by an independent DEFRA approved laboratory.
I have been using this for my dog for a while now, he is on strong meds which are not good for his liver. This is a pert way to help his liver 100% naturally with a seal of approval from my vet
This is amazing. With just one scoop it firmed my dogs poop within a day. I’ll definitely buy it again
Awesome can’t believe I didn’t know you sold these sooner!
This has helped. my dogs coat grow ( he lost a lot of his coat ) and I have been to the vets with him loads of times and even spent £1000 on blood tests nothing helped apart from this skin and coat for dogs , it’s taking a little while but it is much better and I am so pleased it’s working 😊
Great product, the short date is not a problem, as I will still use it up within the specified date. This made it a lot more affordable for me to purchase such a great product.
This is my second purchase. This is the only thing that works well for my dogs reflux. Will definitely purchase again.
Only been using a short time not noticed a difference just yet but will update
My 12 year old dog has been on this now for a few months and it has given her a spring in her step again
These are fantastic and so much easier than the old pouring out the bottle that always seemed to leak the oil everywhere, it was so messy! Now its just popping up the spout and pouring out what you need without any fuss or mess
I have 4 working collies who compete in agility and I find this supplement helps to keep them more focused
My dog has a lot less tummy rumbles since being on Prolax.
My 7 year old BC has spondyloses, this is effecting him, after he has been on Proflax Bone and joint he is moving better, more agile and he has got a new lease of life, he is now training to finish his SAR qualification which he started on last spring. I can highly recommend this product and of course he will continue using this.
Reassuring that my dogs are getting a first class supplement to their diet / and they lap it up. Must taste nice!
We've been using Bottoms Up for quite a few months now and it's definitely made a difference. Our Labrador very rarely licks himself now whereas previously he was doing it daily. His anal glands are fine now too so no more trips to the vets! I can definitely recommend this product.
My two large dogs are on this, it’s full of super ingredients to help support their joints.
