This week on "Healthy Pet HQ with Jodi Z" my guest will be Erin Hay from Nordic Naturals. Join us Monday at noon (ET) 11:00 AM (CT) 9:00 AM (PT) as we discuss the many benefits of omega-3 fatty acids in a pet's diet as well as why the source and processing of omega-3 oils matter.

Omega-3 fatty acids are a whole lot more than the supplement du jour for pets. Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) is a component of all cell membranes and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) works to develop and maintain neural structures including the brain and retina. Together, these fatty acids act to reduce inflammation throughout the body. This is important for the health of the skin and coat, joints and digestive tract.

Later in the hour I will offer tips on how to keep your pets safe and calm during July 4th celebrations.
