Are fats good for dogs?

Like humans, dogs also require fats. Fats provide essential fatty acids that dogs can not make. Fats also help maintain their overall appearance ( coat and skin) and internal health (good nervous system and brain function, energy provider and aid in vitamin absorption). Fats also help absorb fat soluble vitamins through your dog’s food such as Vitamin A, D, E, and K. When reading food labels check to make sure your dog food has good fat such as olive, sunflower, safflower, and soybean oils.
