(9 customer reviews)

OmegaMax Omega-3 concentrated EPA and DHA natural fish oil supplement delivers a rich source of polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acids.

Because pets cannot produce these essential fatty acids, they must get them from their diet.

High-potency omega-3 softgels are a great way to support your pet’s joint mobility, help maintain skin health, including the management of itchy skin, and contribute to a luxurious coat shine.

OmegaMax isn’t your typical omega-3 fish oil for dogs; it’s crafted with sustainably harvested wild-caught anchovies and sardines, molecularly distilled to help remove toxins and impurities.

OmegaMax offers highly purified fish oil capsules that deliver an omega-3 boost to help your pet enjoy an active, happier, and healthier life—naturally.

OmegaMax deep sea fish oil pairs perfectly with NutriFlex Maintenance and Advanced Collagen Supplements for dogs and cats.

100% (human-grade) ingredients from nature.

Recognising 6 Signs of Essential Fatty Acid Deficiency in Your Pet

Omega-3 fatty acids are important for supporting the body's overall growth and functioning. It's often observed that a lack of sufficient EPA in your pet's diet might be linked to changes in mood, while an inadequate supply of DHA could potentially affect their cognitive health and abilities. If your pet is not receiving enough Omega-3, some common signs you may notice include: :

A coat that looks dull or sheds excessively

Itchy, dry or flaky skin


Slower than normal wound healing

Frequent ear infections

Development of hot spots on the skin

Not all fish oils are created equal!


Where to get Omega 3 produced from wild-caught deep-sea fish

NutriFlex selects sustainably harvested wild-caught sardines and anchovies for your pet’s nutritional supplement.

These smaller fish are naturally high in omega-3 fatty acids and are less likely to contain the pollutants and heavy metals often found in larger, farmed fish like salmon.

Their diet of plankton, which is rich in EPA and DHA, contributes to a higher quality of fish oil.

  1. Pollutant and Heavy Metal Accumulation: Larger fish and farmed fish like salmon are higher up the food chain and tend to accumulate more pollutants and heavy metals from their environment and diet. Sardines and anchovies are smaller, lower on the food chain, and typically have a shorter lifespan, reducing their exposure to these contaminants.
  2. Diet and Omega-3 Quality: Sardines and anchovies feed on plankton, which is rich in EPA and DHA, the essential components of omega-3 fatty acids. This direct diet contributes to higher and better quality omega-3 content in these fish compared to farmed fish, which may have more controlled and less natural diets.
  3. Sustainability: Wild-caught small fish like sardines and anchovies are often more sustainably fished compared to large-scale farming of bigger fish such as salmon. This makes them a more eco-friendly choice for sourcing fish oil.

The Science: Omega 3 - Is Fish Oil Good For Dogs and Cats

Omega 3 fatty acids are widely known to enhance skin and coat health in dogs by reducing inflammation. If your dog exhibits allergy symptoms such as atopic dermatitis, characterised by itching, scratching, hair loss, and chewing, including omega-3 supplements in their diet may be beneficial.


“…a placebo-controlled, double-blind, cross-over study indicated potential benefits of high dose (n-3) fatty acids in the management of pruritic skin conditions.” 

A 1995 survey of veterinary dermatology specialists indicated that: ” over 90% of responding veterinary specialists viewed dietary fatty acid supplements as potentially useful.” [2]

“A comparative study observed that, over time, dogs receiving marine oil supplementation showed notable improvements in conditions like pruritus, alopecia, and coat quality, compared to those given corn oil. These findings point towards the potential of high-dose marine oil as an alternative approach in managing canine pruritic skin disease.” [3]

Research suggests suggest that the inclusion of omega-3 fish oil supplements in a dog's diet could be associated with benefits like enhanced overall well-being and support for cardiovascular health and longevity.

A diet enriched with omega-3 helps to lower the levels of inflammatory proteins and fatty acids in the body.

Recent studies suggest that dogs receiving n-3 fatty acid supplements may show improvements in factors associated with survival rates.

Additionally, these supplements may help in reducing the production of inflammatory cytokines and eicosanoids, and are thought to assist in preventing muscle loss and potentially have antiarrhythmic effects.[4]

A 2006 study suggested that pregnant dogs consuming diets high in DHA during pregnancy and lactation may give birth to puppies showing signs of enhanced neurological development.

This research also hinted that young dogs fed diets or supplements containing DHA could potentially exhibit improved memory and learning abilities. [5]

Furthermore, a 2004 study observed differences in trainability between puppies fed high-DHA and low-DHA diets. It was noted that a larger proportion of puppies (68%) from the high-DHA group passed certain training tests, compared to 30% in the low-DHA group.[6]

A clinical trial, which was randomized, double-blind, and controlled, indicated that dogs consuming a diet rich in omega-3 fatty acids and lower in omega-6 fatty acids may show signs of improved mobility and some alleviation in arthritic symptoms.

According to the study, owners observed noticeable improvements in their dogs' ability to rise from a resting position and engage in play after six weeks of consuming the test food. Enhanced walking abilities were also reported at 12 and 24 weeks, in comparison to dogs in the control group. [7]

Omega-3 fatty acids are thought to offer benefits to animals, as they are involved in a competitive metabolic process with omega-6 fatty acids, particularly arachidonic acid (AA), which is often derived from linoleic acid.

This competitive interaction is believed to potentially contribute to the reduction of inflammatory metabolite production in an animal's body. [8]

Studies suggest that the eicosanoids, which are derived from omega-3 fatty acids, may be less inflammatory compared to those produced from AA. [7]
