Flaxseed oils and fish oils are two different types of oils providing pets with different benefits. Deciding on which oil to use would depend on your dog’s overall health and your vet would be able to advise on the best oil for your dog.​

Fish oils contains a natural source of Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) whereas Flaxseed oils contains a particular omega-3 fat called Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA).  The ALA is then converted into DHA and EPA, however some dogs cannot efficiently metabolise and convert this ALA into EPA and DHA.
