Vet Med Today: Timely Topics in Nutrition 1441 D fish oil treatment in humans has been traced back to 1783 when it was described as a treatment for rheumatism in the London Medical Journal. However, additional published information did not appear until 1914, when August Krogh and his wife visited Greenland Eskimos and studied their dietary habits. Subsequently, Heinbecker also studied the metabolism of Eskimos and referred to the work of the Kroghs’, indicating that Eskimos eat almost only… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Nutrition and the skeletal health of dogs and cats
TLDR
It is remarkable that moderate increased vitamin D supplementation decreases the detrimental influence of excess vitamin A on liver fibrosis, but not on the skeleton, possibly due to the anti-fibrotic effect of moderate vitamin D.
The effect of dietary corn oil and fish oil supplementation in dogs with naturally occurring gingivitis
TLDR
It is concluded that supplementation with EPA + DHA does not slow down progression of PD in dogs.
Evaluating oxidative stress, serological- and haematological status of dogs suffering from osteoarthritis, after supplementing their diet with fish or corn oil
TLDR
In canine OA, supplementation with deep sea fish oil improved diverse markers of oxidative status in the dogs studied, and no clinical, haematological or biochemical evidence of side effects emerged related to supplementation of either oil.
Effects of matrix on plasma levels of EPA and DHA in dogs
TLDR
Three different n-3 PUFA formulations were used: soft chew tablet (CCx); liquid fish oil (LFO); and enriched kibbles (EK) and the effect of matrix on bioavailability is important for product development as well as for clinical trials studying effects of EPA and DHA.
Assessment of a New High Protein - Low Carbohydrate - High Fat Diet in Cats with Chronic Gastrointestinal Disease
TLDR
The clinical efficacy of the new highly digestible high protein – low carbohydrate – high fat diet for chronic gastrointestinal disease management and recurrence prevention in cats is confirmed.
NUTRITION AND HEALTH: COMPANION ANIMAL APPLICATIONS: Functional nutrition in livestock and companion animals to modulate the immune response
  • E. Bobeck
  • Biology
    Journal of animal science
  • 2020
TLDR
This review collects examples from several species to highlight the work completed to understand how nutrition can be used to alter immune function, intended or not.
Safety of Algal Oil Containing EPA and DHA in cats during gestation, lactation and growth
TLDR
Safety of AOCED at levels up to 3.0% in the diet was demonstrated in cats with administration starting in utero and until kittens reached 32 weeks of age, and bioavailability of EPA and DHA in cats supports use of A OCED as a source of EPAand DHA for feline growth and reproduction.
Comparison of the systemic phospholipid profile in dogs diagnosed with idiopathic inflammatory bowel disease or food-responsive diarrhea before and after treatment
TLDR
Significant variances were identified in the phospholipid profiles of dogs with IBD and FRD, particularly determined by type of specimen used, disease severity and treatment status.
Hemp in Veterinary Medicine: From Feed to Drug
TLDR
The present review will synthetize the beneficial properties of hemp and hemp derivatives in animal nutrition and therapeutics.
HEMP IN VETERINARY MEDICINE: FROM FEED TO DRUG

Diet and skin disease in dogs and cats.

TLDR
A placebo-controlled, double-blind, cross-over study has demonstrated a clear benefit of high dose (n-3) fatty acids in the management of pruritic skin disease, and preliminary experimental evidence that specific dietary(n-6) fatty ratios are useful in the dietary management of inflammatory diseases.
Nutritional alterations and the effect of fish oil supplementation in dogs with heart failure.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that canine heart failure is associated with cachexia, alterations in fatty acids, and reduced caloric intake, and reductions in IL-1 predicted survival, suggesting that anticytokine strategies may benefit patients with heart failure.
Essential fatty acids in health and chronic disease.
  • A. Simopoulos
  • Medicine
    The American journal of clinical nutrition
  • 1999
TLDR
Alpha-linolenic acid, found in green leafy vegetables, flaxseed, rapeseed, and walnuts, desaturates and elongates in the human body to EPA and DHA and by itself may have beneficial effects in health and in the control of chronic diseases.
Essential fatty acids supplementation in different-stage atopic dogs fed on a controlled diet.
TLDR
Evaluated the effects of polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA) supplementation in different-stages atopic dogs fed on a controlled diet and early stages cases seem to be more responsive to EFA supplementation.
A controlled trial of fish oil in IgA nephropathy. Mayo Nephrology Collaborative Group.
TLDR
Treatment with fish oil for two years retards the rate at which renal function is lost and the effects of fish oil could prevent immunologic renal injury in patients with IgA nephropathy.
The composition of the Eskimo food in north western Greenland.
TLDR
The rarity of ischemic heart disease in Greenland Eskimos may partly be explained by the antithrombotic effect of the long-chained polyunsaturated fatty acids, especially eicosapentaenoic acid prevalent in diets rich in marine oils.
The effects of n-3 fatty acid supplementation on bleeding time, plasma fatty acid composition, and in vitro platelet aggregation in cats.
TLDR
Results indicate that administration of large doses of purified EPA and DHA once daily does not inhibit platelet function in normal cats and is unlikely to prevent thrombosis in cats with cardiovascular disease.
Beneficial effects of chronic administration of dietary omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids in dogs with renal insufficiency.
Effects of dietary polyunsaturated fatty acid supplementation in early renal insufficiency in dogs.
TLDR
Early in renal insufficiency, before significant kidney damage, group FO had a lower serum cholesterol concentration and tended to have a lower urinary prostaglandin E2 and thromboxane A2 excretion than group C, while group SO had a higher mean glomerular capillary pressure and more glomersular enlargement, which could explain the beneficial effects of omega-3 PUFAs and the detrimental effects when administered on a long-term basis.
