Mighty Omegas

There’s no denying our passion for omegas. These powerful fatty acids play an enormous role in pets’ health, and we’re proud to share both our omega products and knowledge with caring pet parents.

Below you’ll find the “whys”, “whats”, and “hows” of Grizzly’s omega products, so you can make informed decisions about your pet’s health.

Why does my pet need an omega

Most commercial pet foods today contain too many omega-6s and too few omega-3s. Excess omega-6s can cause skin and coat health issues, such as inflammation, itchy skin and dandruff, along with other health problems.

Adding Grizzly omega supplements to your pet’s diet gives them a balanced omega-3 to omega-6 ratio for optimum health.

What role do omegas have in the body?


Omega 3’s are essential; and therefore, must come from your pet’s diet. DHA & EPA are found in marine sources like cold water fatty fish. EPA & DHA help strong immune, cardiovascular & nervous system function, healthy joints, and skin & coat health. ALA comes from plant sources and supports skin & coat health, but it is not as bioavailable as DHA & EPA for pets.


Omega 6’s are also essential fatty acids that support healthy cell function. However, an elevated Omega-6 content may trigger inflammation in your pet’s body.


Omega 9’s are not nutritionally important fatty acids since the pet’s body makes Omega-9s as needed. The body burns excess Omega-9s as a calorie-dense source of energy.

How do Grizzly’s Omega oils differ from other omega supplements?

Grizzly’s omega fish oils use 100% wild-caught fish, which contain significantly higher omega-3s than farmed fish. This is because farmed fish diets can include up to 15% vegetable oil (omega-6s). Catching wild is also a more environmentally sustainable sourcing practice than farming, which releases waste and chemicals, like antibiotics, spawning hormones and algicides, negatively impacting native populations, the ocean, and the surrounding environment.

Some omega supplements feature only plant-based oils rich in ALA Omega 3 Fatty Acids. ALA is not as nutritionally available as EPA and DHA, requiring a 3-step conversion process in your pet’s digestive system. Aside from fresh seaweed, plant foods rarely contain EPA or DHA. Grizzly uses only wild fish in the EPA & DHA in our omega supplements to support your pet’s long-term health and wellbeing.
