Approximately 25-30% of family pets suffer from arthritis. Described by most vets as degenerative joint disease. Arthritis in pets is just as painful and debilitating as it is in humans. Part of the pain problems associated with osteoarthritis results from inflammation. Dr. Atkins "Diet Revolution", suggests that a principal ingredient in the fight against arthritis should be Omega 3 fatty acids. And why is that? Because the essential fatty acids clearly demonstrates that omega 3 relieves both arthritis pain and inflammation. By increasing our intake of Omega 3 and omega 6 we are assisting and encouraging the body to produce anti-inflammatory defense mechanisms.

When the diets of horses were fortified with omega's, within 3 weeks their coats developed a beautiful sheen, and dandruff was greatly diminished. Within 9 months cracked hooves were completely healed. When a pregnant mare was fed the hemp oil supplement her offspring were larger, and grew faster than when previous to being fed the supplement. Further research indicates that horses fed Omega supplementation and injected with the deadly organism Escherichia coli were better protected than those not supplemented, suggesting enhanced immunity in these animals.

Our director, Leo Grillo, became aware of Nature's Perfect Oil a little over two years ago. After hearing of it's benefits in humans he wanted to see if it could benefit the animals at the D.E.L.T.A. Rescue Hospital. We began using the hemp oil on our most difficult cases, those with cancer. Within a few weeks we saw measurable improvements in most of these animals' lab work, especially in their liver enzymes. There was also an improvement in their hair coat vitality, both which are often adversely affected by chemotherapy. Delta Rescue is located in Southern California on 112 acres with over 1,500 rescued animals and it is the largest animal rescue service in the world.Dr. M Brown Chief Veterinarian D.E.L.T.A Rescue

Due to their influence on inflammatory processes such as arthritis, dietary supplementation with omega fatty acids-such as found in hemp seed oil, has generated considerable interest in the medical and scientific communities regarding veterinary health. Enhanced Omega intake has been associated with a reduction in the incidence and severity of coronary artery disease, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, as well as immune mediated joint, renal, gastrointestinal, respiratory and skin disease. In addition to their role in disease prevention and treatment, this class of fatty acids has also been implicated as an aid to athletic performance.

The essential fatty acids-omega 3, 6 and 9, linoleic acid, linolenic Acid and gamma-linolenic acid as found in Hemp Oil are essential for the health of the feline liver. If a dietary deficiency of EFA’s occurs or is induced in the feline, classic symptoms such as growth retardation, sterility, fatigue, fatty liver, irritability and poor immune system response result.Geza G.
