Wild-Caught Alaskan Salmon Oil
Nutritionists know the important role omega-3 fatty acids play in the health of the human body, especially when recovering from illness. The same applies to canine physiology. This is why wild-caught Alaskan salmon oil is an essential part of the Canine Biologics Nutrition System.
Rich in omega-3 fatty acids, EPA, and DHA, salmon oil provides exceptional nutritional benefits that contribute to the body’s recovery response, including
aiding in the retention of other important nutrients, and
But not all salmon oil is created equally. To find the most nutritionally rich salmon oil, we travel to the icy waters of Alaska where we rely solely on sustainable fishing grounds for our salmon. Our salmon oil comes from wild-caught Alaskan salmon and is molecularly distilled to remove PCBs, heavy metals, toxins and other contaminants. This ensures your dog receives only the best, safest source of omega-3 fatty acids.
Wild-Caught vs. Farmed Salmon
At Canine Biologics, we don't ever cut corners when it comes to your best friend's nutrition. So we only use wild-caught salmon, fresh from the cold waters of Alaska.
The difference between wild-caught and farm-raised salmon is substantial. While the feed of farm-raised salmon is often supplemented with corn and grain, wild-caught salmon thrives off a natural diet of small fish and krill. This dietary difference helps to optimize the levels of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids in the fish and, more importantly, the critical ratio between these two types of omega fatty acids. Wild salmon is also higher in iodine, selenium, and vitamins D and B12.
And, because caring for your pet means caring for their environment, our wild-caught salmon comes exclusively from sustainable fishing grounds.
The Difference Is Visible
The rich saturation of fatty acids in wild salmon is reflected in its texture. And, its distinctive red coloring is the result of algae-eating krill which wild salmon consume in large quantities during their lives in the wild. In fact, the rich red coloring of wild-caught salmon is so prized that some salmon farmers try to affect the color of their salmon by adding dyes and coloring agents into their fish feed.
Purity and Molecular Distillation
Like all the ingredients in the Canine Biologics Nutrition system, our salmon oil is made to human-grade standards. For us, this means using molecular distillation to purify our salmon oil and remove any heavy metals - including mercury, PCBs and other contaminants that may exist even in wild, non-farm waters. We also rely on molecular distillation to concentrate our salmon oil to create the highest recommended density of EPA, omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acid. Other salmon oil companies rely on enzymatic or CO2 concentration methods which produce undesirable levels of heating of the concentrated oil which leads to degradation of these important nutritional components .
Finally, we add just a hint (<1%) of rosemary - a natural way to help maintain freshness without using any artificial preservatives.
The Canine Biologics Result
As part of the Canine Biologics Nutrition System, our wild-caught Alaskan Salmon Oil comes packaged in an easy to use pump bottle. And, every salmon oil pump bottle is sealed with a bubble of inert nitrogen that prevents oxidization and keeps the oil inside at peak potency while it makes its way to you and your dog.
Just add the salmon oil to the food and supplements included as part of your dog's meal at feeding time to create the world's only complete, cross-balanced Integrated Nutrition System to support dogs fighting cancer.
