Hoi ik wilde eens zien wat ASPCA was en deed...een dierenbschermingorganisatie in de VS. Zij zouden in het lab van Iams mogen kijken en positief reageren...ahum...waarom worden ze gesponsord door hen...
Ik keek bij de voeding en ze beweren het volgende en ik zou graag jullie mening daarover hebben.
Omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids play a vital role in inflammation. As the omega-6 fatty acid content of the diet increases, more omega-6 fatty acids are built into the cell walls resulting in a greater inflammatory reaction when the cell is damaged. Replacing some omega-6 with omega-3 fatty acids can lessen the inflammatory reaction. This appears to be true regardless of whether the inflammation is in the skin (from allergies), the joints (from arthritis), the intestines (from inflammatory bowel disease) or even in the kidney (from progressive renal failure).The optimal ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids for dogs is between 5 and 10 to 1.
It is impossible to accurately determine the fatty acid ratio of a diet if the owner prepares home-cooked foods. Obtaining an accurate ratio by supplementing homemade or other commercial diets with omega-3 capsules is also unlikely; the ratio of fatty acids in the base diet is not known and may vary from batch to batch. If a dog is to benefit from the effects of these fatty acid ratios, they must be fed a fixed-formula food that guarantees these ratios.
