Why Hemp Oil?
It's unique from other oils, hemp is a highly beneficial source of Essential Fatty Acids as it offers the correct balance of Omega 3 and 6.
Many pet parents give fish oils, the problem with fish oils is the fish has to be heated to extract the oil which can potentially cause rancid oils. Another issue with fish oil is the contamination in the ocean making the oils high in mercury.The World Health Organization warns of dangerous levels of mercury in fish, and scientists are also monitoring dangerous radiation levels in Pacific Ocean fish. There has never been a better time to consider Hemp oil’s virtues.
