What is it?

Krill a natural extract of the Antarctic krill, a tiny pink crustacean found in the Southern Ocean.

What does it do?

Krill is incredibly rich in omega-3, enabling it to support a wide range of health benefits including improved heart function, reduced inflammation and a healthier skin and coat.

Why we chose it

Krill has one of the highest concentrations of Omega-3 in the world, surpassing fish oil in both strength and bioavailability. It also contains Astaxanthin, a powerful antioxidant.

Why not a generic Omega-3?

Our Krill is purpose-made for pets and is chemically structured to deliver more Omega 3 than other types of fish oil.
