December 5, 2016 – Wellpride, makers of the first pure omega-3 fish oil supplement for horses, is excited to make an appearance as a vendor at the 2016 American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP) Convention from December 4-6. Wellpride invites all attendees at the convention to visit with Wellpride’s founders and staff at booth #1811 at the Orlando Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. Wellpride has been a vendor at the AAEP Convention every year since 2005.
We like AAEP because it gives us a chance to connect with veterinarians,” says Dr. Anne-Marie Chalmers, Wellpride’s co-founder, along with her husband, Dr. Bo Martinsen. “It’s a great opportunity for us to provide them with educational support about omega-3s, their benefits, and the way these molecules work in the body.
When Chalmers and Martinsen created Wellpride, they consulted with a team of veterinarians and researchers who helped them create the best-quality fish oil for horses. The team focused on the oil’s freshness level and determining what would be an effective dose for horses. Made from a human-grade fish oil derived from sardines, herring, and small mackerel, Wellpride fish oil can be used for a wide variety of benefits.
Veterinarians and other attendees who visit the Wellpride booth can sample the oil, and notice the superior freshness that Wellpride is known for, along with its absence of the dreaded “fishy” smell and taste that many fish oil supplements exhibit. Wellpride also encourages attendees to pick up their new whitepaper, “11 Myths About Feeding Omega-3 Fish Oil to Horses.” This whitepaper clarifies a number of misperceptions about fish oil and provides a plethora of information on the topic. Attendees are encouraged to share this information with their clients and customers.
Wellpride always stresses that the source of an omega-3 supplement makes a difference on how it works within the body. “A flaxseed oil, for instance, provides a different type of omega-3 than what you find in fish oils and is not as effective,” explains Chalmers.
In addition, Wellpride emphasizes that omega-3s make up an important part of every cell in the body. “That is why they have such a wide range of benefits,” adds Chalmers. “Finally, we stress that the quality and freshness level of an omega-3 supplement impacts the benefits it delivers. The new research coming out on omega-3 shows clearly that freshness equals potency and safety.”
In addition to the equine fish oil product, Wellpride’s sister company, Omega3 Innovations, has emerged with its own line of omega-3 foods and supplements for people. Attendees can also test Omega3 Innovations’ products at the booth.
All of the products produced by Wellpride and Omega3 Innovations provide omega-3 fatty acids through fresh, full-spectrum fish oil. Research has shown omega-3s to improve the following in horses: focus, respiration, joint health, skin and coat health, recovery after exercise, hoof integrity, digestion, and fertility.
Wellpride, America’s #1 Fresh Fish Oil for Horses, has been dedicated to providing horse owners with the freshest and most potent source of omega-3 essential fatty acids. A human-grade formula, Wellpride contains enough EPA and DHA to make a positive impact on equine health. The benefits of EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) have been scientifically proven in numerous field trials.
The company was founded in 2003 by Dr. Bo Martinsen and Dr. Anne-Marie Chalmers with the support of a consulting team made up of researchers and equine veterinarians.
