Eicosaderm:


This is an oral supplement that contains Omega 3 fatty acids.  These fatty acids are derived from fish oil, which is the best source of for dogs and cats.   The Omega’s from plant and vegetable oils are not as well absorbed and processed by their bodies.  
Eicosaderm has high levels of EPA (Eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid).  These fatty acids have potent anti-inflammatory properties.  This particular supplement is marketed for skin and coat, but it can be used for many other inflammatory conditions.  I commonly prescribe it for arthritic dogs and cats, as well as those with kidney disease.  
Even pets without any skin problems or other obvious conditions can benefit from this supplement.  Omega 3’s support brain and nervous system development in growing puppies and kittens.  In senior pets, cognitive function, heart health, kidney health as well as skin and joints are all benefited from Omega 3’s.  

I find this particular supplement easy to give as it comes with a pump and easy dosing chart.  It is designed particularly for dogs and cats and it comes from a very reputable company.  The best part is pets love the taste!
