The Omega-3 Index Test for Pets* measures the amount of EPA and DHA in the blood.

Find out if your pet’s* diet is delivering a healthy amount of omega-3s.

When your pet takes an Omega-3 Index test it will provide a percentage that indicates the combination of EPA and DHA in their blood. For pets, like dogs, the ideal level is around 3%.

Getting your pet to an optimal Omega-3 Index will help ensure they are getting enough of the right omega-3s to protect their health.

Measuring important fats like omega-3s can help dogs maintain a diet that delivers a healthy amount of these nutrients, which they are often lacking. Routine testing and changing the amount of EPA and DHA in your pet’s diet should be used to determine the appropriate dose of EPA and DHA needed to maintain an optimal Omega-3 Index.

It will take 3-4 months for your pet’s Omega-3 Index to reach a new level and we recommend re-testing at that time. Once your pet has achieved the desired level, it is advised that you re-check their values every six to 12 months.

It is important that you take this test to your vet and have them administer the blood draw. They have the expertise, staff, and tools to carry out this test on your pet. Carrying out the blood draw in your home is not recommended.
