Pharmaceutical grade omega-3 essential fatty acids Cold Water Fish Oil consists of sardine and anchovy. None of these fish are farmed. They are caught as they swim wild in the ocean water off the coast of Chile and Peru.
Your dog or cat requires a certain amount of fat for proper growth and functioning. The fats that are necessary for good health, but which cannot be manufactured by their body are called essential fatty acids.
Canadian pharmaceutical level Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) is a strict quality certification system regulated by Health Canada. It is designed to define how products are developed and produced, to ensure both safety and proper ingredient identification. This includes tests to guarantee active ingredient content, purity, clarity and homogeneity. With proof of ingredient activity and high quality, stability is assured. Every batch of The Carnivora Cold Water Fish Oil is sampled and thoroughly tested to meet these standards.
GMP is much more than just guaranteed ingredients. This certification means every step of every process involved in manufacturing our Cold Water Fish Oil must meet Health Canadas stringent quality control standards. GMP regulates the manufacturers equipment and facilities, standard operating procedures, quality control and quality assurance procedures. GMP regulates raw materials testing, finished product testing and more. The Carnivora Fish Oil is protected from light, air, and oxygen during manufacturing. It is made from only the best raw materials and is third party tested to ensure purity. We guarantee every drop of our oil is free from pesticides, herbicides, heavy metals and PCBs. These standards meet or exceed those of the World Health Organization (WHO), the Pharmaceutical Inspection Convention (PIC), and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations for pharmaceutical level GMP.
Under current U.S. regulations, dietary supplements manufactured in the U.S, such as Essential Fatty Acids, are not subject to GMP. Companies that do choose to conform to GMP are only required to meet "current" GMP (cGMP) standards, designed for food manufacturers. These standards primarily regulate sanitation practices. Unlike Canadian pharmaceutical level GMP, cGMP is not designed to ensure active ingredient content or quality in dietary supplements. So unlike Essential Fatty Acids manufactured in the U.S., which may or may not meet any GMP standards at all, The Carnivora Cold Water Fish Oil provides the very best quality available.
The Carnivora Cold Water Fish Oil should be consumed within an eight-week period once opened and kept refrigerated to prevent spoilage. The flip-top cap should be firmly closed after use to prevent oxidation of the oil. Because of their sensitivity, EFAs need to be stored properly and used with care. They need protection from light, air, and heat. If this protection is not given, EFAs are damaged and they will not retain the health benefits they are meant to provide.
If the dominating ingredients in a dog or cat's diet contain high levels of poultry, other animal fats or grains, The Carnivora Cold Water Fish Oil should be supplemented on a daily basis. Almost every pet will benefit from The Carnivora Cold Water Fish Oil, especially if they show symptoms of stiffness or arthritis, allergies or require immune system support. Dogs and cats that are itchy, display poor skin condition, or whose coats lack luster and shine will also benefit. Carnivora Cold Water Fish Oil is critical to normal eye and brain development in the fetus and therefore essential for pregnant as well as lactating females.
