Why Salmon Oil

As fun as our wine may be to give to your pets, we want to ensure that there is an added benefit to our tasty treat!
Fish oil is probably the most important supplement you can add to your pet's diet, regardless of what type of diet you feed. EPA and DHA, the omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil, provide widespread benefits.
Proven benefits from EPA and DHA include:
