DHA and Why It's Important for Your Puppy
What is DHA?
DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid) is natural omega-3 fatty acid essential in the development of the brain and nervous system in young mammals.
What does it do?
DHA is a major building block of the brain and is a critical element in the development of vision and the central nervous system.
Why does my puppy need it?
The primary source of DHA is milk from your puppy's mother. Hill's™ Science Diet™ Puppy pet foods keep supplying this brain building element long after weaning.
Where does DHA come from?
Just as in humans, the primary source of brain-developing DHA is from mother's milk. It is also available in foods such as certain fish, eggs and organ meat. Hill's Science Diet gets its natural DHA from easy-to-digest fish oils.
