If your dog’s on board with the amaranth, millet and quinoa, non-allergenic-grains food produced by El Cajon Oalif’s Solid Gold, your dog’s living like a king. Omega-3 fatty acids are anti-inflammatory. Omega-6 fatty acids are pro-inflammatory.
Solid Gold uses flaxseed (I grind my own fresh every day) and canola oils. They have the perfect ratio of omega-3s and omega-6s. Other oils are way off balance. Sunflower oil has no omega-3s but has 233 parts omega-6s. As Solid Gold reports correctly, “this is a disaster.” Safflower oil is worse, with no omega-3s and 243 omega-6s. Corn oil is the worst of all. Solid Gold’s reviews show no omega-3s and 310 omega-6s. Your best reference regarding the merits of omega-3 fatty acids is my oft advised “the Omega Diet” by Artemis P. Simopoulos, M.D. And lucky is your dog to dine regally from Solid Gold, the one and only dog-food company that is a member of the Organic Trade Association.
