do you know?! i was just checking out a pet food link from the carnivor feed list and saw this:

http://www.goatmeats.com/PetFood/Store/comersus_viewItem.asp?idProduct=110

100% of our ingredients are raised and processed in the US. That is why we use only CA grown and processed olive oil instead of fish oil. When we learned that our "Maine" fish oil was refined in China, where 99.9% of the fish oil refineries are located, we dropped it from our formula and added olive oil. There has never been a study that sites Omega 3 as necessary to a dog or cat''s diet. OLive oil contains omega 6''s and 9''s, shown to be necessary in pet diets.

Please be careful where the ingredients in your pet''s diet actually come from.

oh - wow - thank you for posting this link, Straybaby... 

although there is no study yet showing the need for Omega 3 in cat and dog food diets, Omega 3 is an anti-inflammatory while Omega 6 is inflammatory.  So if you only have Omega 6 and 9, you could have a little imbalance there.... 
Some pet conditions (like feline hyperesthesia and arthritis) benefit from Omega 3 anti-inflammatory action... my older cat has benefited from the fish oil that I put in his food... so far so good, but I am thinking of getting Norwegian salmon oil next time (when my fish oil runs out). 

 Huh they wouldn't be refining Norwegian salmon oil in China - or would they?  Huh

I dunno.  I use Carlson's.  The site says:  "The Very Finest Fish Oil comes from deep, cold, ocean-water fish. It is processed and bottled in Norway to insure maximum freshness."

This stuff makes me want to bury my head in the sand sometimes and pretend everything is fine.

Edit: I just got e-mail verification from a Carlson's rep that *none* of their liquid or soft gel fish oil products (including the bottling) were from China ever.  Nor were they processed or refined there.  The fish are wild caught in the waters around Scandinavia and Peru/Chile.

Thanks for the link straybaby. I saved it to my bookmarks so I can go back after the holidays and order the goat shank bones for my lil girl. Been looking for an alternative to the beef soup bones from Whole Foods.

I use The Missing Link dietary supplement for my cat which contains Omega 6 and Omega 3 fatty acids, among other things.  They are supposed to promote healthy skin and coat.
