Herring packs a big omega punch!


What does Omega 3 do for dogs?

Omega 3 is an essential fatty acid for dogs that they cannot produce on their own so it is super important to ensure that your dogs and cats get them through diet.

Known benefits of Omega-3 Fatty acids for dogs:

  • Supports brain development in puppies

  • Helps dogs with arthritis by reducing inflammation

  • Improves skin and coat health

  • Boosts the heart and kidney health

A lot of food have a good source of omega fatty acids but there are also other, tasty and fun ways of getting omegas into your pets diet, like treats!  Gunni's Taste of Iceland offers Herring Omega Bites for both your cat and dog which provide these essential fatty acids

Herring is not only a very good source of Omega 3 fatty acids, it is also rich in EPA and DHA which your pet needs in order to develop and function optimally in every stage of life. EPA and DHA help to maintain good heart health, visual function and are important for the development of brain. They are also of major importance for ensuring strong immune system through the anti-inflammatory effects.

 Gunni ́s Herring Omega Bites are made from fresh, wild-caught herring from the North Atlantic Ocean that is sustainable sourced (MSC certified). We only remove the water from the product, adding nothing extra, which means our Omega 3 is in the natural triglyceride form. This is of major importance as research confirms that Omega 3 fatty acids in the triglyceride form have more bio-availability and therefore absorbed much better compared to other formats.

Gunni's Herring Omega Bites are 100% natural and not only contain the important EPA and DHA fatty acids but also quantities of 9 different PUFAs (polyunsaturated fatty acids) and 9 different MUFAs (monounsaturated fatty acids).
