Welcome to the fourth and final post on my series on feeding dogs. Last time I touched on cod liver oil for dogs as a great supplement, but today I thought I’d expand on it just a bit.
After reading the BARF Diet and researching the ideal diet for dogs, it’s funny just how many parallels there are between nutrition for dogs and nutrition for humans. This is particularly true when it comes to healthy oils.
Consider these parallels:
The same refined vegetable oils that cause problems for humans also cause problems for dogs.
Just like humans, pets cannot manufacture the essential fatty acids (EFAs), omega-6s and omega-3s and must get them from their diet.
Just like humans, pets need a balance of omega-3s to omega-6s for good health.
Too many omega-6s promote inflammation in dogs just like in humans.
Processed pet food contains excessive levels of omega-6s, just like processed human foods.
Processed pet food is lacking in healthy omega-3s just as most supermarket food is for humans.
Factory farmed meat is deficient in omega-3s for humans and pets. When processed pet foods label “high in omega-3s” they’re using the same tricks that processed human foods use.
