Springtime Omega 3-6-9 softgels are a safe, reliable source of essential fatty acids. Because omega-rich oils tend to oxidize (turn rancid) quickly, we really like the softgel protection from oxygen. If you cut an Omega 3-6-9 softgel open and sniff, it will always have a nice fresh aroma.
Daily dose may be doubled or tripled if faster, more dramatic benefits are desired.

Omega 3-6-9 Information
Springtime Omega 3-6-9
Springtime Omega 3-6-9 is a powerful combination of essential fatty acids, fatty acids and vitamin E that are crucial to a dog's total body health. Although these supplements have been known to moisturize dry, itchy skin, many people are unaware of how critical they are in healthy organ function and cellular health. Essential fatty acids (EFAs) cannot be produced by the body and must be obtained through diet, and that is why they are termed "essential." Springtime uses the most balanced blend of borage seed oil, distilled wild fish oil, and organic flaxseed oil.
Borage Seed Oil
Borage seed oil contains large amounts of gamma linolenic acid (GLA) and its parent fatty acid, linoleic acid (LA). GLA, an omega 6 fatty acid, helps cell membranes maintain their fluidity, and helps maintain elasticity of skin. GLA also has properties that foster a healthy inflammatory response, and supports the reproductive and immune systems. Borage seed oil also contains oleic acid, an omega 9 fatty acid, which is thought to support healthy heart function.
Distilled Wild Fish Oil
Distilled wild fish oil is a very valuable source of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), both omega 3 fatty acids. Anchovy, mackerel, and sardines have been a staple of the heart-healthy Mediterranean diet for thousands of years and are rich in EPA and DHA. EPA and DHA from these natural sources are easily assimilated into the body. This wild fish oil has been purified to be free of mercury, lead, and heavy metals. It also contains omega 3 alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), which is a precursor to EPA, and DHA. EPA and DHA are essential fatty acids and help maintain a healthy coat, skin, thyroid, nervous system, the adrenal glands, and mucous membranes. They also are critical for healthy bones, teeth, and muscle mass. EPA and DHA are also known to support brain oxygenation and may support learning development in growing puppies.
Organic Flaxseed Oil
Organic flaxseed oil has all three omega fatty acids: 3, 6, and 9. These fatty acids support the regulation of the digestive, reproductive, cardiovascular, immune, respiratory, and nervous systems. This organic flaxseed oil has been stored and handled to be used as a dietary supplement and is the best grade possible.
Vitamin E is an antioxidant that fights cell damage by neutralizing harmful free radicals. It has also been shown to support a healthy inflammatory response, support the immune system, and support the bodies healing mechanisms.
Vinnie, a winner!
Omega 3-6-9 helps give "...an edge..."
I'm terribly pleased with the Omega 3-6-9! Here's a picture of a nine month old dog I bred, Pine Hill's Pay To Play (we call him Vinnie, LOL!) at his very first outing going Best Opposite Sex from the puppy dog 9-12 month class. Obviously, genetics (structure, temperament), and optimal health and condition are all a huge part of a total package but if I can give the dogs an edge with a superior diet including your supplement, I certainly will!

Soothed Skin & Itch Relief
The Omega 3-6-9 I ordered from you is having a wonderful effect on my Pitbull, Bruno. He has had skin problems since he was a puppy; blotchy, very red skin on his belly and inner thighs, and incessant scratching. He had been itching constantly and developed scabs along his lower spine and the base of his tail. I am so grateful I found your product and grateful my pup has been given relief. His belly and the insides of his thighs have also begun to clear up from chronic redness and itchiness. It was a veterinarian who recommended Omega 3-6-9 and an internet search that led me to your site. Great product!

"…his hair grew back."
Thank you so much for the Omega 3-6-9. I had fed my dog, Huckleberry, a dog food that he apparently had an allergy to. He lost a patch of hair above his tail. Vet said if it began to spread we would need to check for mites. I switched his food and he improved a little. When I saw your catalog and got these, it was a lifesaver. I stated Huckleberry out on double dose and within a few weeks, his hair grew back. We get compliments about how shiny he is.

Omega 3-6-9 for a Best In Show
Enclosed is a picture of Best In Show Grand Ch. Maric's Truth Be Told. When I got him as a puppy he was not growing the hair I wanted, and he was chewing the hair off his tail. I saw one of your catalogs and decided to order the Omega 3-6-9.
I started him on it and when his breeder took him to show him, she had to thin his coat. He got several Group Placements and a Best In Show under a judge not known to like Toy dogs. He got as high as #5 in All Breed Showing and #18 in Breed competition for 2011.
I got my friend to use it when she was having coat problems on her Papillon. She ended up being the #2 Papillon Bitch for 2011.
I am very pleased with your products. Keep up the good work.
