DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), an omega-3 fatty acid, is well recognized for its brain, eye and heart health benefits for humans, and now, there is growing evidence suggesting that algal DHA supports many of these same benefits for animals. In dogs, DHA supports brain and eye development in puppies and a healthy skin and coat in dogs, as well as supporting trainability.
Higher dietary levels of DHA have been observed in dogs with more favorable dispositions and may support heart health and joint health in adult dogs. Because of this, Halo is proud to include DHA Gold in its Toy & Small Breed Formulas.
Our natural Toy & Small Breed recipes are enriched with DHA GOLD®, a natural sustainable vegetarian source of DHA omega-3. DHA omega-3 is considered a functional fat because it participates in important structural and functional cellular processes.
