Fish oil supplements can greatly improve skin, coat, joint, and heart health, and more, in dogs and cats.
The EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docahexaenoic acid) are the long chain omega-3 fatty acids known to reduce inflammation in humans and pets. These fatty acids are found preformed in fish oil. The benefits of fish oil for dogs can be surprisingly far-reaching. Fish oil for dogs and cats supports the health of the skin, coat, joint, kidneys, heart, and immune system. It's even been shown to aid in more serious problems, like cancer.
5 Great Things Fish Oil Does
1. EPA, one of the two omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil, acts as an anti-inflammatory. It will help with any condition that causes inflammation of the heart, kidneys, skin, and joints -such as arthritis.
2. It will ease inflammation due to allergies, and reduce itchy skin and dandruff. This can also be an effective way to potentially decrease the incidence of hot spots on your pet.
3. Like many fat supplements, it promotes a shiny, healthy coat, and reduces shedding. (For cats, this may also mean fewer hairballs, since your cat won't pick up as many loose hairs while grooming.)
4. DHA, the other omega-3 fatty acid in fish oil, is important in brain and eye development in puppies and kittens. Giving fish oil to pregnant or nursing pets can benefit the babies once they're born.
5. In some studies, fish oil has slowed the growth of cancer. Though more studies are needed to reach conclusive results, some veterinarians recommend it for any pets with cancer.
Vital Pet Lipids are a liquid supplement with an unusually effective spectrum of oil-based nutrients. These nutrients produce rapid results unachievable with any other product. In addition to the fish oils we add Astaxanthin, an immune booster, and Vitamin E. Regardless of age or condition, your cat or dog will jump to life with these lipids in their diet.
Promotes glandular strength, enhances mucus membranes, and makes coat and eyes shiny. Used as an adjunctive treatment in cases of:

All lipids (fats & oils) are slightly laxative, including Vital Lipids. Animals should have GI stability before administering this product.
Krill Oil is the premier long-life and healing oil, contains 9% DHA and 15% EPA, essential to the good health of all animals. The phospholipids in Krill Oil are structured so that the EPA and other nutrients are encased in a lipid framework that facilitates entry into cells. No other lipid has this biochemical conformation. Studies using Krill Oil showed a marked reduction in symptoms of joint pain, and cholesterol levels, and a normalization of blood sugar levels, along with an improvement in immune function.
The antioxidant values of Krill Oil shown on the chart below were obtained by independent evaluation of leading national brand products in order to measure their antioxidant potency using the scientifically-recognized ORAC method (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity).
Tuna Oil is extracted from deep-sea tuna fish and is rich in DHA (6%) and EPA (25%). Tuna Oil is the preferred DHA supplement because it has high levels of DHA/AA, vital ingredients for proper nerve function and for transmission of messages between nerve cells. Our Tuna oil tests at one ten thousandth of a gram of mercury per kilogram of oil which is twenty times less than the allowable limit.
Astaxanthin appearing in many places in nature, is a carotenoid. The substance that gives color (red) to salmon, algae, and many fruits and vegetables. Occurring naturally in krill oil, we add extra to maximize it's healing benefits. Our Astaxanthin is a super critical extract of Haematococcus Pluvialis microalgae.
According to numerous scientific studies, astaxanthin strongly improves the health of animals. It has been shown to:
Greatly increase the longevity and survival rate of salmon and chickens
Lower salmonella infections in chickens
Reduce infections by increasing immune resistance in every animal it's been tested with
Accelerate the growth of farmed salmon by 600%. This number seems exaggerated but that is exactly the amazing effect of Astaxanthin.
Every type of animal given astaxanthin lives longer, grows faster, exhibits greater fertility and shows much stronger immune system function.
Astaxanthin: a short list of the most important benefits:
Greatly reduces inflammation and joint pain
Greatly increases endurance, muscle recovery and workout performance
Reduces the risk of cancer
Reduces blood sugar level in diabetics and prediabetics
Improves fertility while decreasing the rate of stillborn births
Boosts immune function and helps the body resist infections
Protects the stomach from ulcers and invasive bacteria
Protects the kidneys from damage due to high blood sugar
Causes cancer cells to commit suicide (apoptosis)
Greatly improves sperm quality, motility, and sperm count
Vitamin E (mixed tocopherols) primarily controls lipid peroxidation and complements some of the functions of vitamin A. Vitamin E and tocopherols,
in general, prevent premature cellular ageing and tissue degeneration.

"We didnt have any animals after building a new house 23 years ago, then we took in a cat that was my Mothers. Then we had a stray kitten come to the door and I let her in. Then we started getting many strays when they heard we were easy.
Now we take care of close to 30 stray cats. When it is cold out, some come in on the porch to sleep.
The shelters are all full and no one seems to want more cats. We try to get them fixed, so not to get more, but can't always keep up. One of the females who had been fixed, started having diarrhea. I tried for 3 months to stop it. I cooked just chicken and rice, tried kaopectate, but nothing helped. I searched the internet and found Vitality Science. I decided it was cheaper than another Vet appointment and it was also guaranteed, so I ordered Feline Comfort and Vital Lipids. She was better in 4 days and much better by weeks end. Since then I have used it for many cats with great results every time.
One cat we called Suzie was laying on our porch step close to death. I brought her in, wrapped her in a towel and called Mr. Becker. He sent Herbal Anti Inflammatory. I gave her that, Feline Comfort and Vital lipids for a week. She was much better and was able to walk again. As soon as she could, she got out. She still comes to eat, but we cant touch her.
I bought some for my Mother in law's 16 year old cat and she is feeling much better and can move easier now.
I have been very impressed by the products I have tried. I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't seen it.
Mr. Becker answered an email question with a phone call. He explained many of the problems and helped immensely. Im surprised and happy that in this day and age there is still a company that is so very good and helpful also.
Thank you from the many benefactors of your kindness."

"She is 6-7lbs. and I gave 1/4 tsp daily (cellq) and 1 dropper lipids (just under 1/4 tsp). Will be 3 weeks Tuesday since starting, and the rodent ulcer hasn't been visible for 3-4 days now…
She is not as blah now and makes her twin sister seem to be the lazy one (sis gets vital lipids too).
Thanks & happy holidays!"
I am writing to you in regards to my cat Shadow. Shadow was born from a cat I had rescued from a vacant lot. His mom died of feline aids and kidney failure, so it was only a matter of time before Shadow would become symptomatic. He is approximately 12 years old. Over the past few months he started going down hill. He had gone from a large cat to a cat of skin and bones. He had not eaten in 4 days. I was feeding him chicken broth, egg yolks and baby food by syringe 4 times a day as well as Transfer Factors and a few other homeopathic remedies which were at best only buying a little time. I left him real fish and chicken which normally he would devour, but he could not eat it. I found Vitality Science while googling which I do quite often because I have more faith in natural remedies as opposed to toxic drugs. I ordered the cancer protocol which consisted of Vital Lipids,Celloquent, Enzymes and Pet Flora. I gave him his first dose before I left for work and I also left him some food which he normally didn't eat and to my surprise he ate about half a can of cat food. The next day a whole can and two cans a day ever since. It has been about two weeks now and Shadow has actually gained about a pound and is more active. Shadow is not what most would call a cute cuddly cat (he is to me) but never the less, attached is a photo of him. It is form a cell phone camera so please excuse the quality. Thank you Mr. Becker for your help."
