FATS AND FAT SOURCES
It is important that the source of fats is at the correct ratio of omega-3:omega-6. Omega-3 is found in linseed oil and fish oils. Ultimate Canine Nutrition uses fish oils from salmon, anchovies, sardines and pilchards, as well as a small amount of linseed oil.
Dogs’ fat-intake requirements are often higher than what is found in many dog foods. However, food containing the correct levels of fats can go rancid more easily. Therefore, it is important to store dog food in a cool, dry environment, away from direct sunlight and in a suitable container or foil bag.
