Essential fatty acids (EFA’s) for your dog – Omega 3 & 6
Essential fatty acids (EFAs) are fats that must be supplied in the diet because the body cannot produce them naturally. They are required for normal growth and functioning of the cells, muscles, nerves, and organs and the production of prostaglandins (hormone-like substances which are key to many important processes). Deficiencies of EFAs can be linked to a variety of health problems. Essential fatty acids are divided into two groups, Omega-3 and Omega-6.
Many dog foods now contain ‘Omega 3 & 6’s’ however it is extremely hard to incorporate enough to really make a difference to your dog.
Omega Star® is a 100% natural blend of plant oils, rich in essential Omega 3 and 6’s. It is both the unique combination and quality of the ingredients and most importantly the levels used in this carefully created blend, which really make its results stand out.

“We were introduced to The Omega Star product before the launch, in fact we trailed the product on two of our Brown Dobermanns.
Connie 3yrs and Izzy 10yrs old. If any product was going to do as the label says, there is no better coat than that of The Brown Dobermann to put it to the test. We are a show kennel and our dogs must be in impeccable condition to compete. So we took the challenge with some apprehension.
Within two-three weeks we started to notice a difference, their coats were less dry, the depth of colour was more intense with a beautiful lustre and shine.
Since the launch of this great product we have continued to use it daily, added to the food of all of our dogs. It has also benefited our black coated Dobermanns, they too have no dry skin, and the hair loss whilst brushing is considerably less. All of our dogs coats have definitely benefited from the product.
Of course a good quality feeding regime is essential to keep your dogs coat in top show condition, he is what he eats, but Omega Star given daily will certainly keep him in “Superstar” condition”
