We wouldn’t call it our secret weapon, but all-natural Canola Oil is an increasingly effective way to keep your hounds from gaining pounds. Originally created by our neighbors up North, Canola is a low-fat cooking oil that gives food a nice, clean taste. Food products manufactured with Canola Oil have higher levels of polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats, and significantly lower levels of saturated and trans fatty acids than more traditional products.
Canola Oil’s unique ratio of almost 2 to 1 Omega-6 to Omega-3 makes it the richest vegetable oil source of essential fatty acids. (In comparison, corn oil is approximately 55 to 1 Omega-6 to Omega-3.) So the next time your lab is licking his chops, unleash the power of Canola!
