More Benefits of Olive oil for dogs
The monounsaturated fats in olive oils can also promote optimal health in your dog because of its abilities to prevent and lessen the chances of diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Additionally, olive oil is believed to prevent cancer in dogs because of the oleic acid it contains, along with the compounds of terpenoids and squalene. At least 50 per cent of dogs over the age of 10 are affected and die from some type of cancer each year.
Olive oil is filled with high levels of antioxidants, vitamin E, polyphenols, carotenoids and chlorophyll which are a great combination in promoting your dog’s healthy immune system necessary in fighting off illness and disease. This is especially true during the change of seasons with the alteration of the environment, leading to allergies, skin problems, parasite issues and more. What is also sad is when your dog starts going gray and becoming tired and drained before its time. Along with a healthy immune system, supplementing your dog’s daily diet can extend its life by preventing free radical cell oxidation that robs your dog of its youth prematurely.
