Most food supplements based on fish oil use a standard oil with 18% EPA and 12% DHA. EPA and DHA are the technical terms for two of the beneficial fatty acids contained in fish oil. So a dog that is given a standard food supplement often only gets 30% beneficial fatty acids. VitalChew contains very high quality, concentrated fish oil, and with a concentration of up to 60% of the beneficial fatty acids.
In order to benefit the joints and musculoskeletal system, for example, dogs need high levels of EPA. That’s why VitalChew Joint + Mobility contains a fish oil with 50% EPA and 10% DHA. In order to promote a puppy’s development or a senior dog’s well-being, however, it is more DHA that is needed. VitalChew Puppy Health and Senior Health therefore contain 50% DHA and 10% EPA.
