So What Caused the Problems?
Essential Fatty Acids are fat-carried nutrients that every mammal needs to maintain healthy function and structure of smooth organs (i.e. heart, reproductive system), to protect and build liver cells, and to maintain healthy skin, coat, and strong joint tissues. They have also been linked to eye development and antioxidant activities, and they are responsible for various chemicals that act upon smooth muscle contractions of the heart and digestive tract, the initiation and regulation of inflammatory responses, and serve to inhibit excessive clotting of the blood.
They may not look like it on the outside but on the inside our cute and cuddly fur babies are still mostly wolves and you've never seen a pack of wolves stalking a stand of wheat or a corn stalk. That's because wolves eat MEAT and meat is the best source of Essential Fatty Acids.
Our pet's modern diet is seriously lacking in the proper nutrition they require. At the top of the list of things commonly missing from our pet’s diet are essential fatty acids like eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Many high quality (and high priced) commercial dog foods are EFA-fortified. These dog foods are not a reliable source of EFAs. Not only are most prepared with heat (which can destroy naturally-occurring EFAs), the meat products come from corn-fed animals, and a variety of grains are used as fillers. Instead of natural oils from nuts, many dog food manufacturers use refined oils, like soybean oil, which are all high in omega-6. Your dog ends up with too much omega-6 and not nearly enough omega-3 fatty acids. The hormones in omega-6 increase inflammation and disrupts the immune response, blood clotting, and cell growth.
