This is a highly requested video about the essential fatty acids omega 3 and omega 6. There is a lot of information here! We talk about how omega 6 is uniquely critical for a healthy gut and skin and how omega 3 is critical for the brain and inflammation resolution. We talk about myths such as -omega 6 is inflammatory -omega 3 is anti inflammatory -you can never balance the omegas in a poultry based diet -fish oils are more dangerous than plant based oils because they go rancid easier etc. We also talk about the omega ratio in raw and cooked diets. This workshop contains a lot of information and you do not need to understand or know all the information in the video. All you will really need to understand for formulation is that for most dogs, feeding organ meats, oily fish, and eggs, and muscle meat will provide enough preformed essential fatty acids. Also, we will talk about this more when we get to the actual application videos when we formulate. Please post questions! I am happy to answer them!
