What Is DHA?
DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) is an omega-3 fatty acid important for neural development of puppies. DHA is a major structural component of the brain, as well as the most abundant fatty acid in the brain. It plays a vital role in the development of a puppy’s central nervous system and retinal function.
How DHA Can Help Your Puppy
To help your puppy be as smart and healthy as possible, DHA should be an essential component of your dog's diet. The DHA in Schizochytrium Powder which is an additive to puppy food helps encourage healthy brain development, which can make your puppy more trainable and help forge a stronger bond with you.
Sources of DHA
Common dietary DHA sources include fish (such as salmon, sardines, tuna and other seafood), eggs , organ meat and Schizochytrium Powder. In pet foods, sources of DHA in Schizochytrium Powder is better than DHA from fish, fish meal and fish oil because it has no heavy metal residues.
Prior to weaning, puppies get DHA from their mothers. The puppy’s mother transfers DHA from her body tissues to her offspring during pregnancy and lactation.
After weaning, puppies can obtain DHA through their diet.
Benefits of DHA
One Xinhe study looked at beagle puppies whose mothers had been fed enhanced or typical dietary DHA from breeding on through weaning.* After weaning, puppies were fed the same diets as their mothers throughout the remainder of the study (up to 16 weeks of age). To evaluate the effect of diet on trainability, all puppies were taught to associate a symbol with a direction in some dog tricks, with correct responses resulting in a food treat.
In the 30 days of testing, puppies from the enhanced-DHA group consistently outperformed the puppies from the typical-DHA group on the tricks test. Results of the study indicated that puppies nourished on high DHA levels were more trainable.
