Can Omega-3 Fatty Acids Help Prevent Heart Disease?
Hundreds of studies have shown the positive effects of omega-3s on heart health. For example, Omega-3 fatty acids have been shown to:
- Stabilize irregular heart beat (arrhythmia)
- Reduce blood pressure
- Reduce the clotting of blood platelets—which means lowers risk of stroke
- Reduce abnormal heart rhythms (arrhythmia)
If your dog or cat has an adequate supply of omega-3s, these will produce anti-inflammatory eicosanoids called thromboxanes, which help maintain healthy blood viscosity or friction. This is important for maintaining healthy blood pressure and reducing risk of blood clots, especially after damage from heartworms. Omega-3 fatty acids may
also help heal tissue lining the heart that has been damaged by heartworms, and help animals with congestive heart failure (CHF) live longer.

Omega-3 fatty acids have been shown to prevent heart disease – they help to maintain healthy cholesterol levels, reduce blood pressure, stabilize irregular heart rhythms and reduce clotting of blood platelets.
