Whether your dog is very active or you have a breed that is prone to joint issues or osteoarthritis, camelina oil can help with joint inflammation. While there are multiple benefits of feeding your pet camelina oil, canine joint mobility is a common reason pet owners use it as a supplement. 

How Do You Know If Your Dog Is Having Joint Issues?

1 in 5 dogs suffers from osteoarthritis which is typically the reason why a dog is having mobility issues. Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis that results from the breakdown of cartilage between bones and can cause pain, stiffness, and swelling. There’s a number of factors that play into a dog having osteoarthritis including injury, overall health, and age. Genetics also play a major role in osteoarthritis, and breeds than are typically more prone include labs, german shepherds, pugs, golden retrievers, bulldogs, rottweilers, and st. bernards. As your dog ages, make sure to pay close attention to any stiffness, limping, difficulty walking or doing stairs, or hesitancy to play. 

How Camelina Oil Can Help

Camelina oil is rich in omega 3 fatty acids which are an essential nutrient that is not produced by the body and therefore must be consumed in the diet. It is recommended to maintain a balanced diet of omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids, but most oils contain much more omega 6 than omega 3 fatty acids, which is why camelina oil is a great supplement choice. Omega 3 fatty acids have been proven to help with morning stiffness and swollen joints through reducing the production of molecules and substances that cause inflammation. Adjusting your dog’s diet is an easy and feasible way to relieve symptoms of osteoarthritis and joint pain. Camelina oil can also reduce lung inflammation and be a great source of energy to boost endurance and recovery.
