We wouldn’t call it our secret weapon, but using all-natural canola oil is an increasingly effective way to keep your hounds from gaining pounds. Originally created by our neighbors to the North, canola is a low-fat cooking oil that gives food a nice, clean taste. Food products manufactured with canola oil have higher levels of polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats, and significantly lower levels of saturated and trans fatty acids than more traditional products.
Canola oil’s unique ratio of almost 2-to-1 Omega-6 to Omega-3 makes it the richest vegetable oil source of essential fatty acids. (In comparison, corn oil is approximately 55-to-1 Omega-6 to Omega-3.) By giving canola oil to your canines, you can help to increase their circulation, reduce joint tenderness, and maintain their healthy immune system. Plus, it’s “terrier”ific for maintaining healthy skin and coat. So the next time your lab is licking his chops, unleash the power of canola!
