Scientifically Balanced for Maximum Immune Support

Omega 3 fatty acids are one of the most important nutrients for dogs --yet they are almost entirely missing from pet foods today.  VeRUS Pet Foods are different.  We optimize our formulas to ensure dogs get the higher level of Omega 3 fatty acids their bodies need to:

  • Maintain healthy immune system
  • Reduce inflammation from arthritis, allergies and other disorders
  • Prevent or combat dry hair and dull coat
  • Fight back against heart disease, cancer, and other diseases


VeRUS Advanced Opticoat:

Our flagship Omega 3 formula

Provides the industry's highest level of Omega 3 support with ingredients rich in EPA, DHA, and ALA Omega 3 fatty acids:

  • Wild -caught, cold water fish
  • Fish oil from Northeastern-caught menhaden
  • Flaxseed oil, the only substantial agricultural source of Omega 3 fatty acids

Why do VeRUS optimized formulas perform better?

Although the proper balance for Omega 6 to Omega 3 fatty acids for a healthy dog is not exactly known, studies show that a ratio of roughly 4 to 1 Omega 6 to Omega 3 provides adequate quantities of Omega 3 fatty acids to positively influence the immune system. Higher levels of Omega 3 fatty acids may provide an even greater immune benefit for dogs that are experiencing immune related disorders. Pet foods containing significant levels of Omega 6 fatty acids, such as those using sunflower, safflower and other vegetable oils as their primary fat source may actually suppress the immune system. These foods are normally designed to appeal to the humans purchasing the food, not the dog eating it.
