Fats (Lipids) are the primary source of energy for dogs. Oil sources are essential for levels of both Omega 6 and Omega 3 for dogs. They are also beneficial for overall health, aiding bodily systems such as the skin and digestive tract. We have taken into consideration both the source/ingredient for fat and oil in the foods and scored them according to digestibility and quality.
Vegetable Oils are a large group and they can range from ok to very poor sources of Omega 3 and 6 with poor digestibility. They can often cause digestive problems.
Oil from only meat sources are often low quality or unspecific sources of Omega 3 and 6. They do add palatability to foods.
Flax, Linseed and Coconut are all good quality oils that contain good levels of Omega 3 and 6 and contribute to overall digestion and palatability of foods.
Salmon Oil and Named Fish Oils are all great sources of Omega 3 and 6. Adding great palatability to foods.
