A dietary supplement for your pet which provides a naturally balanced source of essential fatty acids. K-9 Essentials contain Omega 3 (linolenic acid), Omega 6 (linoleic acid), and Omega 9 (oleic acid) a powerful transdermal carrier. These are combined with MSM (methyl-sulfonylmethane, a naturally occurring organic sulphur), to maximize your dog's health. EFAs are important for skin and hair care of all pets. They promote cell oxidation and play a key role in keeping your pet's circulatory system at its very best, as well as helping to reduce the risk for heart disease by providing HDL cholesterol (good fat) in the diet. EFAs are a great source for pain relief in pets with arthritis and joint disabilities. NOTE: Your pet's system does not produce EFAs. They must get them from their diet. MSM plays a crucial role also by helping to alleviate pain in a variety of ailments including arthritis, muscular soreness and discomfort due to food allergy symptoms. MSM is also known for its ability to assist the body in the healing and growth of new cartilage. With the emu oil's essential fatty acids and excellent penetration abilities, the MSM can be dispersed throughout the body much more quickly and efficiently, thus providing quicker relief. Recommended dosage for pets: 1 gel cap per 30 lb. body weight daily.
