There are pet foods that provide omega-3 for cats as fish and fish oil

My vet put my two 2.5 year old cats on Hills Z/D for excessive ear wax. (one is also asthmatic) Two days after beginning the switch they both developed dandruff and sensitivity at the base of their tails. The vet then prescribed an Omega3 supplement. Could this be an allergy to the food instead of caused by a diet deficiency?

If the dandruff is an allergic reaction, rather than because of a diet deficiency, will the Omega3 help? Or will it simply mask the allergic reaction? Don't know how they could be allergic to a hypoallergenic food!

Now Foods Omega-3 Support for Dogs and Cats, Fish - 180 softgels - eVitamins United Kingdom Cats are more of a challenge, but recently, we’ve been able to convince Mac that he can take the whole Omega 3 pill in a Pill Pocket and he swallows it down with no problem: Pretty amazing since we used to have to give it to him manually. The capsule can also be cut and spread over your cat’s food. We do this for our other cat and she used to have a bad dandruff problem around the base of her tail – it disappeared within about 4-5 days.

Omega 3 Fatty Acids Help Heal Many Pet Disorders

Without having a way to get a complete work up on your pet food, and you already know that your cat or small dog needs an Omega 3, I would, of course, highly recommend keeping the Omega 3 supplement simple. A pure salmon source 500 mg fish oil is a very good base for Omega 3. A 500 mg Omega 3 will have around 80-110 mg of essential fatty acids.
