Everything You Need to Know About DHA In Your Pup’s Diet!

DHA or Docosahexaenoic Acid is a type of omega-3 fatty acid found in eggs, certain types of organ meat, and fish. It is an essential nutritional part of a dog’s health. In fact, it is one of the most abundant fatty acids in the brain.

So, how exactly does it help your pup?

 

A study published in the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association concluded that feeding newly weaned puppies (between eight weeks and a year old) foods high in DHA resulted in

 better cognitive, memory, psychomotor, immunologic, and retinal functions than puppies that did not have DHA in their diets.

DHA benefits are not limited to puppies though, simply because a healthy brain needs a sustainable diet rich in fatty acids

 to stay healthy in dogs from all age groups.

A supplement rich in DHA like Mighty Petz’s Max Omega 3 Chews can help develop and replenish this essential brain component.
