What is the Omega 6:3 Ratio in Petzyo Kibble that CountsUpdated 4 months ago

Omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids are essential nutrients for dogs, playing crucial roles in various physiological functions, including skin and coat health, immune function, and inflammation regulation. 

However, the ratio between omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids is vital for optimal health, as an imbalance can lead to chronic inflammation and associated health issues.

The ideal omega-6 to omega-3 ratio in a dog's diet is generally recommended to be between 1:1 and 4:1, though the National Research Council and AAFCO include between 2.6:1 to 30:1 omega-6 to omega-3! Achieving this balance is essential because omega-6 fatty acids, when consumed in excess relative to omega-3s, can promote inflammation, which is linked to conditions such as allergies, arthritis, and cardiovascular diseases.

Unfortunately, many commercial dog foods often contain higher levels of omega-6 fatty acids, leading to an imbalanced ratio in the diet. This is typically due to the common use of ingredients like corn, soy, and certain vegetable oils, which are rich in omega-6 fatty acids.

At Petzyo, we recognize the importance of maintaining an optimal omega-6 to omega-3 ratio in our pet food formulations. We take pride in carefully formulating our recipes to achieve a balanced ratio, ensuring that our products provide the necessary nutrients for your dog's overall health and well-being.

Chicken and Turkey with Superfood Extras 4.8:1
Salmon and Oceanfish Superfood Extras 4.1:1
Kangaroo and Sweet Potato Superfood Extras 4.5:1 

These ratios reflect our commitment to providing high-quality nutrition that supports your dog's health from the inside out.

By prioritizing the omega-6 to omega-3 ratio in our formulations, we aim to help prevent inflammation-related health issues and promote optimal health for your furry companion. With Petzyo, you can trust that your dog is receiving the balanced nutrition they need to thrive.
