Where do y'all buy the grizzly oil at?
I add it to his food, others add it to their water, and if they have things like irritation between their toes you can soak their feet in a mixture of acv and water. Between that and the salmon oil Bacon's coat has gotten soooo much better plus it helped his staff infection on his back go away

salmon oil and pretty much any pet store should have it. if not then you can order it online. i use grizzly brand myself.
So I added some Grizzley Salmon Oil from pet flow with regular shipment, should be here today. Any body knowledgeable about supplements???... Anybody? Didn't know who to tag that know this subject. What about vitamin E? I heard you should also give this with fish oils, does any body know about this and what kind/ where do I get it? Can I use Vitamin E soft gels that I have for me? Just poke a hole and dribble some on? If so how much? How often?
Both my dogs weigh about 40 lbs.

In order to really enjoy a dog, one doesn't merely try to train him to be semi human. The point of it is to open oneself to the possibility of becoming partly a dog.
we give bacon a cap full of unfiltered apple cider vinegar with this dinner too, it's good for their immune systems
Well, Ambers food is homemade and I use a variety of stuff for her to include salmon oil but I also use bacon grease once a week in her weekend groceries. Since I make breakfast on weekends forthe family she gets two tablespoons of bacon grease in her food on Sat and Sun plus she gets eggs in her food throughout the week and NuVet vitamin supplements daily. Her coat glimmers and shines.....unless she decides to roll around in the garden. lol
Jake gets nothin! His food is it. Ohhh and Benadryl!
KMARINO does this for Vegas
yes, you can use your E pill for your baby... not sure on dosage though, maybe 400mg a day

Thank you for all the love, fun and teachings
Twice is probably the most knowledgeable about supplements.
I've never heard of having to give Vit E if you are giving them fish oil though ... that's a new one to me!!
We use the Grizzly salmon oil too, but I introduced that to Bella at the same time as I switched from Fromm Beef to the Fromm Salmon. She had an allergic reaction to it and lost patches of hair off the top of her head. We've taken out the salmon oil and put her back on Beef. I'm waiting for all the hair to grow back and then I'll experiment with the salmon oil again so I can rule out if one or both things caused the allergic reaction.
I always try to use human grade supplements for my dogs. The ingredients are better, they are more FDA regulated than the canine brands AND they are usually cheaper. If you are going to use human grade fish oil the dose is 300mg of EPA and DHA per 10 pounds of body weight, split into 2 doses a day. You can either puncture the pill and squirt it onto the food or stuff it in a pill pocket and give it whole. I used to just mix the whole pill into Abbys food, she never noticed it in there and ate it. Do NOT use cod liver oil!
The vitamin E thing is something that I guess not many people know about. Long term fish oil dosing can deplete the body's natural vitamin E reserves. This applies to both people and animals. A vitamin E supplement should be added every couple of days to keep the balance.
This is from an article in the Journal of Nutrition
1).However, the substitution of membrane fatty acids with potentially unstable (n-3) fatty acids from fish oil may potentiate peroxidation of cellular membranes and increase the requirement for vitamin E, a membrane antioxidant. Feeding fish oil has been a classical method for the induction of vitamin E deficiency in animals(6)
There is an excellent writeup about it on Livestrong
At 30 pounds, Abby got 200 IU vitamin E every other day. At 60 pounds, Otis gets 400.
For me, her name was Abby
