Why Do So Many Top Professionals Choose Equine Omega Complete?
Equine Omega Complete is a Complete Essential Fatty Acid Supplement.
Horses cannot produce the essential fatty acids they need for their health. They must obtain them through their diet. Most horses today do not have access to 24/7 daily grazing of fresh green grass. Therefore, it’s critical to supplement the horse with essential fatty acids each day. Equine Omega Complete is an all natural, complete essential fatty acid supplement with a balanced Omega-6 to Omega-3 ratio. Joint and anti-inflammatory support, better gut health, natural calming effects, improved hoof health, faster recovery, breeding support, immune support, hair coats that glow and much more.

- The horse cannot produce them. They must be obtained through diet
- They are a specific type of polyunsaturated fat
- Omega-3 fatty acids help to decrease inflammation in the horse’s body
- Omega-6 fatty acids are more pro-inflammatory in nature
- Common sources of Omega-3 fatty acids: fresh water fish, Herring and Mackerel
- Common sources of Omega-6 fatty acids: corn oil, grains such as oat and corn
- Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids must be balanced for effectiveness
- There is much discussion regarding the “best” ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3
- Research states that the closer the ratio between the two the more beneficial it is to the horse
- Soy bean oil has a 7:1 ratio on average. Corn oil has a 57:1 ratio on average.
- General consensus for the ideal ratio for Omega-6 to Omega-3 is a range between 4:1 and 7:1
- Equine Omega Complete’s Omega-6 to Omega-3 ratio is 5:39 to 1

O3 Animal Health chooses organic, non-gmo soybean oil as our main ingredient in our 4 products and we’d like to share why.
99% of soybeans used in the United States are not organic and are genetically modified. In addition to that, the vast majority of soybean oil is chemically or heat processed. The Omega-3 fatty acids in soybeans are easily damaged by this kind of processing.
We use only organic, non-gmo, soybean oil.
More importantly, the oil we produce is mechanically expeller or cold pressed. This kind of processing is critical in retaining the good antioxidants in the plant. Cold pressed, unrefined soybean oil has a vast array of beneficial antioxidant effects.
If you’re feeding any type of oil and it does not specifically state that is it expeller pressed, it is most likely chemically or heat processed. Cold pressed oils tend to be higher in quality as more of their essential fatty acids and natural antioxidants are left intact in comparison to heat or chemically processed oils.
O3 Animal Health doesn’t use flaxseed or flaxseed oil in our products. While flaxseed has a very good Omega-6 to Omega-3 ratio, it oxidizes very quickly after processing, which can diminish its effectiveness and become rancid, especially if it is heat or chemically processed so if you currently feed flaxseed or flax oil be sure to check that out.
Plant sources of Omega-3 contain the essential fatty acid called ALA. This needs to be converted into two elements called EPA and DHA in order to be effective. Horses can convert them but the conversion rate is not very efficient.
Fish oil is a direct source of EPA and DHA. There is no conversion necessary.
Multiple studies have shown that fish oil is an excellent source of Omega 3’s for horses. In fact some studies show it as the best source.
Equine Omega Complete contains human grade, deep water, wild caught fish oil as one its’ ingredients.
You might wonder will my horse eat it?
99.99% of horses love our products. They literally lick the bowl the clean and our product has no added flavoring.
So just how important is Vitamin E for the horse?
Actually, Vitamin E plays several important roles. It helps in normal muscle function. It acts as a powerful antioxidant to protect the horse’s cell membranes and helps ward off disease.
Horses that don’t get enough Vitamin E can suffer from fatigue, damage of muscle and nervous systems. They can have skin issues and just overall poor performance. This, in turn, can lead to a decrease in the horse’s immune system, diminished muscle and even lameness.
This is especially true for horses that get a lot of exercise, due to the fact that exercise can induce oxidative stress and further lower the horse’s Vitamin E levels.
Horses that are traveling and competing may also need additional Vitamin E support for their immune function and overall performance.
Recent studies have shown that unless a horse is fed entirely fresh green grass, it’s likely that they may have a vitamin E deficiency.
While Alfalfa and quality grass hays are good sources, but between 30 and 80% of the vitamin E content is lost between cutting, baling and storage.
So how much vitamin E is needed? Research suggests that horses may need a much higher amount than was previously thought.
In fact, there was a recent study at the University of Kentucky that found that study horses that were given 800IU’s of vitamin E per day didn’t maintain their optimum blood and muscle vitamin E levels.
Equine Omega Complete has 1,200 IU’s of all natural vitamin E per daily dose. Why is all natural vitamin E important?
It’s because natural sources of vitamin E have as much as six times more bioavailability for the horse than synthetic versions. If your supplement doesn’t specifically state that the vitamin E in it is all natural, it is mostly like synthetic.
It’s important to note that Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin… so needs to be fed with fat in order for it to be effective for the horse. Equine Omega Complete’s healthy fat is an excellent partner in this.
There are trillions of cells in a horse’s body and the majority of that cell membrane is made up of fat.
If it is good fat like Equine Omega Complete, nutrients get in and waste gets out and the cells function properly. Cleansing the Cell Membrane and the Role of Fat in the Diet Nutrition is the best way to insure that the cell membranes will stay healthy. A horse gets the same amount of energy from 1 pound of fat as it does form 3 pounds of oats. Excessive grain can disrupt normal microbial balance in the hind-gut/may lead to colic or Laminitis.
It’s helpful for horses with high energy requirements to reduce their grain amount and supplement with fat. Fat supplementation has shown to be very helpful in treating PSSM horses. Vegetable fats are 95% digestible in the horse and almost all of it is absorbed in small intestine, which is ideal and it is preferable that oils be “Cold Pressed” not “Solvent Extracted”
Cold pressed oils higher in quality as more of their essential fatty acids and natural antioxidants are left intact in comparison to solvent extracted oils. If you currently use an Omega oil and it does not specifically state that it is cold or expeller pressed, it is most likely heat or chemically processed. This kind of processing destroys the delicate essential fatty acids and antioxidants, rendering those products must less useful for the horse. In addition to this, many high fat performance grains are also very high in Omega-6’s and chemically processed.

“I decided to try the Equine Omega Complete due to all of the great reviews and am glad that I did. I’m using it on two of my horses. The first horse is my western pleasure horse. She has had a locking stifle for the past couple years. She has been on this about a month so far and is almost 100% better. Nothing else seemed to work to help her except for this amazing product. The fluidity in her movement is the best it’s been in a very long time. She is finally using herself correctly. I’m just amazed and so happy to have my old horse back! My other horse is a 16’2 Hunter Under Saddle horse that has had back and SI joint issues and your product has lessened his pain dramatically. His movement is so much more fluid and you can tell he is a lot more comfortable. Thank you for this amazing product!” Brittany Ryan
