Honoring your First Promise to your dog and supplementing with Omega Canine Shine® every day, you can easily achieve the healthiest ratio of natural Omega EFAs (Essential Fatty Acids)—higher in 3 & 9, lower in 6—from human food-grade, ground, fortified flaxseed; fish oil; and sorghum; along with synergistic plant and vitamin based antioxidants. Omega Canine Shine® is a great tasting supplement and easy to serve.
• Optimal levels of Omega-6 and Omega-3: To promote the proper ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3, Omega Canine Shine combines Pure Glean Stabilized Ground Fortified Flax Seed with other natural ingredients – stabilized rice bran, ground sorghum seeds, herbs, spices and refined fish oil – to provide the optimal method of achieving the ideal balance of Omega-6 and Omega-3 levels in your pet’s diet.
• “Short chain” and “long chain” Omega-3: To speed assimilation, animals need “short chain” LNA as well as “long chain” EPA and DHA. Omega Canine Shine has stabilized ground fortified flax seed to provide “short chain” Omega-3 and refined, medicinal-grade fish oil (not Menhaden) to provide “long chain” Omega-3.
• Antioxidants from natural sources: To prevent fats from becoming rancid, thereby preventing damage to your pet’s chromosomes – Omega Canine Shine contains high levels of four different antioxidants: Lignans, Tocotrienols, Polyphenols, Oryzanol and Tocopherols.
• Fiber: Soluble and Insoluble: To encourage the growth of beneficial bacteria, animal diets need to include soluble fiber. To encourage proper stool action, animal diets need insoluble fiber.
• Magnesium: Hypomagnesium is the most common electrolyte abnormality in critically ill canines, according to Tufts University School of Veterinary Medicine.
Oxygen: Friend as a Molecule- Foe as a Free Radical
Oxygen as a molecule is essential for life on earth. Without its presence, animals would not survive for more than a few minutes. Yet oxygen is a double-edged sword; as its existence gives life, so does it slowly take it away, by a process know as “oxidation” — the very process by which all things decay, and “return to dust”. Almost every substance on earth is subject to attack and decay from oxygen.In animals, scientists believe free radicals play an important role in the initiation and promotion of cancer, cataract, arthritis and other degenerative diseases. Exposure to environmental perils, such as chemicals in petfoods, pollution or irradiation, eventually increases the free radicals beyond the ability of the organism’s defense system to cope with it.Free radicals are highly reactive forms of oxygen that damage cells throughout the body. As a dog’s body creates energy at the cellular level, oxygen is metabolized, changing its structure. In this process, the oxygen molecule loses one electron, turning it into a free radical. Free radicals are inherently unstable, since they contain “extra” energy. To reduce their energy load, free radicals react with certain cells in the body, interfering with the cells’ ability to function normally.Free radicals are highly reactive forms of oxygen that damage cells throughout the body.

Free Radicals Can Cause Over 80 Age-related Diseases
The natural mechanism which protects us from free radicals weakens with age. Therefore, older dogs, dogs on prescriptions, and very active dogs, are more susceptible to degenerative diseases — including cancer, heart disease, arthritis and cataracts. In today’s high-stress world, our best friends are exposed to many stresses – chemical preservatives in dog food, anxiety, breeding, hunting, showing — creating damaging free radicals at an ever-earlier age.Standing as the major defender against harmful free radicals is glutathione, your dog’s own antioxidant, along with his liver – as the primary detoxifier of harmful chemicals both consumed and produced in the body. This organ’s antioxidant abilities are crucial to life and well-being. An overburdened liver, with insufficient supply of antioxidants, will result in disease and even death.In this day and age, supplementation with antioxidants to fight free radicals and prevent age-related diseases is becoming a necessity rather than a choice.
Omega Canine Shine®-Omega-3/Antioxidant Formula – a Synergistic Approach to Antioxidant Protection
There are many types of antioxidants available. The most common ones are the vitamins C, E, A, and selenium. Research on several important new forms of antioxidants, shows that these antioxidants are many times more potent than the above-named nutrients, and work in different ways for additional protection.
Polyphenols are very powerful antioxidants, and act to regenerate Vitamin E after it becomes oxidized. A good source of polyphenol antioxidants is sorghum seed. Per serving, sorghum contains more antioxidizing power than any other food. Omega Canine Shine contains ployphenol sorghum along with 6 other powerful antioxidants!
Since numerous forms of free radicals are produced in your dog’s body, it makes sense to supplement with the wide range of antioxidants found in Omega Canine Shine. That way your dog’s body can effectively deal with the different types of oxidative damage from all these radicals. The wide range of antioxidants and powerful nutrients in Omega Canine Shine gives your dog longevity.
Omega Fields’ PureGlean Milling process delivers a more potent form of Omega Three Fatty Acids. Painstakingly perfected at a small, state-of-the-art mill in rural Wiscoinsin, the proprietary process ensures a powerful dose of Omega 3s every time you share an Omega Fields’ product with your dog.
Let us help keep the promise you made to your dog when they became a part of your life. Feed them an unmatched dose of Omega 3s through Omega Fields’ PureGlean Milling process. Omega Fields….Of One Heart.
Better than the competition:
You can have confidence in the Premium, Human-Grade, Non-GMO, 99.9% Pure, Stabilized, Ground, Fortified Flax we use in our Omega Horseshine® formula.
PureGlean stabilization technology provides a stable, ground, fortified flaxseed composition as a rich source of Omega-3 in the diet.
PureGlean stabilization technology includes the inclusion of B-6 and Zinc when the seeds are going through the grinding process. Flax seed contains a natural B-6 antagonist, so B-6 needs to be added to ground flax. B-6 and Zinc not only enhance the stabilization of the essential fatty acids, but also fortify the ground flax seed with the nutrients used by the body when flax seed is being metabolized.
Stabilized Ground Stabilized Flaxseed, Stabilized Rice Bran, Ground Grain Sorghum, Refined Fish Oil, Magnesium Citrate, Choline Bitartrate, Citric Acid, Rubbed Sage, Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C), Zinc Sulfate, Vitamin E Supplement, Niacinamide, Calcium Pantothenate, Selenium Yeast, Vitamin B-12 Supplement, Folic Acid, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride (Vitamin B-6), Thiamin, Riboflavin

“Quality of skin and hair coat is noticeably healthier looking…less flaking…less dryness. Found positive effect in cutting down on acral licks—areas growing hair… inflammation going down. I am putting any dogs with any reproductive problems on the products. Repeat buyers… virtually everyone that we put on Omega Canine Shine® comes back… picking up two bags instead of one. I can talk anybody into trying a free sample, but when they come back to buy, I know it’s working!”

Recent scientific studies show that in most dog foods (even the premium varieties) the dietary ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3 is 25 to 1. *Nutritionists agree that the ideal dietary ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3 (to achieve and maintain optimal health) should be in the range of 1 to 1 to 3 to 1. The reason, according to Dr. Artemis Simopoulos, in her book, “The Omega Plan”, is that during the last 100 years the supply of Omega-6 in diets has increased 300%, whereas the supply of Omega-3 in diets has decreased 80%! She’s found that eating a balanced diet, including the right fats, is the key to good health and longevity for animals and humans. Getting enough Omega-3 fats is key, she says.
*A 3-to-1 ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3 is the ideal balance based on scientific studies done by: Dr. William Lands, the leading Omega-6 and Omega-3 researcher in the U.S., NIAAA, Bethesda, Maryland Dr. Michael James, Rheumatology expert, Royal Adelaide Hospital, South Australia, Dr. Joseph Hibbeln, respected Omega-6 and Omega-3 researcher, NIAAA, Rockville, Maryland, Dr. Artemis Simopoulos, Center of Genetics, Nutrition & Health, Washington, D.C., author of “The Omega Plan”.
