The benefits of fish oil for dogs are well known. It is known to be great for skin and joint health. Did you know that krill has even more benefits for your dog than fish oil?
Let’s look at four reasons why you should give your dog a krill supplement. You might be surprised at all the benefits your dog has been missing!
1 – It improves your dog’s overall health
2 – Krill is more sustainable than fish
Krill is the largest biomass in the world, and its harvest is strictly regulated, with only 1-2% of the biomass allowed to be harvested each year. That makes it more sustainable than fish oil and therefore better for the planet.
3 – It is more powerful than fish oil
Krill oil is more potent and the nutrients in it are more easily absorbed than fish oil, meaning less is needed to get the same benefits. Research has shown that krill oil is up to 48 times more powerful then fish oil.
4 – Krill contains fewer pollutants than fish
Krill eat phytoplankton, so they are much less likely to become contaminated with pollutants and heavy metals than animals higher up the food chain. That makes krill a much safer alternative to fish, which absorb all the pollutants from the other fish that have eaten them – a process called bioaccumulation.
How can I add krill to my dog’s diet?
If you want to test what effects krill oil can have on your dog, we recommend trying a krill-based product such as the RxVitamins Krill Sticks (available on Amazon Prime). They contain a high concentration of powerful Omega-3 fatty acids (you only need to give your dog one every other day). Additionally, it acts as a dental chew and helps keep your dog’s teeth free of plaque and tartar.
