Groovy Gravy review

This post is sponsored by Groovy Gravy.

My dog doesn’t get enough omega-3s from his diet, which is why I recently began supplementing his food. I’d never really considered doing the same for my two cats until I found out about Groovy Gravy.

What the heck is Groovy Gravy?

Groovy Gravy has found a way to incorporate highly absorbable, human food grade omega-3s into a gravy that can be poured over a dog or cat’s food, according to the company. Groovy Gravy uses nano-technology that allows the omega-3s to be absorbed at higher rates compared to other delivery systems on the market.

The gravy can also be poured into a pet’s water or poured onto a plate on its own as a treat. I poured it over my pets’ dry food, and I also served it to them on a plate. They loved it!

What are omega-3s?

Omega-3 fatty acids are “good fats” that are essential for optimal health in humans as well as dogs and cats, according to Groovy Gravy. Pet food generally has an insufficient amount of omega-3s for a pet’s daily needs and therefore many dogs and cats are deficient in omega-3s.

According to the company, some of the health benefits of omega-3s for dogs and cats include:

  • healthier skin and coat
  • good cardiovascular function
  • a stronger immune system

If you’d like more information on how omega-3s benefit dogs and cats, Groovy Gravy links to several studies here.

I’ve noticed that my own dog’s skin appears healthier and less itchy if I regularly give him omega-3 supplements.

What I like about Groovy Gravy

  • I know my pets do not get enough omega-3s from their regular diets, so Groovy Gravy is a convenient way to change that. If you have a dog or cat that won’t take pill-form supplements, this is the perfect option.
  • Groovy Gravy can be used as a food enhancer to help encourage a picky eater or underweight pet to eat.
  • The gravy can help encourage diabetic pets to eat on time before their scheduled insulin injections.
  • Groovy Gravy can be mixed in water to encourage a pet to drink more.
  • The multiple favors can be rotated to give pets more taste variety without changing the actual food.
  • The company is very cat friendly.

Groovy Gravy for dogs and cats

What I don’t like about Groovy Gravy

  • I can get fish oil tablets at Costco for less money and give them to my pets. These contain omega-3s.
  • 25 mg of omega-3s is not enough for most pets per day, so you may need to give them several packets.
  • Two of the Groovy Gravy varieties include brown sugar (tuna for cats and beef for dogs). I’d rather not willingly feed my pets extra sugar.

I asked the brand manager of Groovy Gravy why the product contains brown sugar and this was the response:

“A very tiny amount of brown sugar was added to give it the gravy color – other coloring additives were illegal in Canada and we were backed in to brown sugar as it’s a more natural option.”

As you can see, my cat Beamer goes nuts over the Groovy Gravy. The Dobie picture (Meka) was sent to me by a Groovy Gravy representative.

      I think they’d love it! Ace and Beamer will eat anything, but Scout is picky and even he thought the gravy was tasty.

  1. My cat would LOVE this product. I often mix a little wet food with water to promote healthy drinking and he adores it. This would be a great option 😀

  2. Sounds like something my picky kitty would like and I could use it to tempt her to eat more. I wonder if it’s grain- free? She has issues with grains.

  3. My dog would like these because she likes food, all of it! =) The omega 3’s really do help her coat and skin. We’ve noticed she gets a little itchy when the seasons change so we are incorporating omega 3’s into her diet to help, and we’ve noticed a difference. Her nail growth has also took off, we’ve been having to clip more regularly.

    I really like packets like these for long hikes. They’re convenient to throw in a pack, and add to her water when I notice she’s not drinking much at rest stops. She’s not the best at drinking on her sometimes becase she is too interested in the new smells, sights, and sounds.

  4. I love trying new ways to get my not-very-dry-food-motivated dog to eat! And I’m sure the Omega-3s would help her occasional itch fits.

      Hi Snoop! There’s no easy answer to that, and I suppose it depends on who you ask. Maybe Groovy Gravy can chime in.

      The dog’s individual diet is a factor, but many of the commercial pet foods in the U.S. are very high in omega-6s and lower in omega-3s so the balance is off. I feed my dog a combo of raw and kibble, and I know supermarket meat is also high in omega-6s. He and I both take omega-3 supplements 🙂

      Dr. Karen Becker is a vet I trust, and she typically recommends omega-3 supplements for most healthy dogs.
