    Default Fish Oil making But Stink

    I have been giving Uni and Boadie both Grizzly Fish Oil for about a month now. I'm starting to notice a smell coming from their but. Not farts, but just a kind of fishy smell coming for under the tail area. I guessing this is from the fish oil. But the problem with that is I also started giving them apple cider vinegar at the same, so I'm not for sure. I have noticed that their fur has gotten shinier and softer since I began giving them these to things, so I don't want to stop, I am thinking of reduce the amount of fish oil I am giving them. I have been giving the recommended amount on the bottle. Does any body else notice a smell from fish oil?

    Hmmm...I havent yet but Z has only been on Grizzly's salmon oil for 2 weeks. Also the apple cider vinegar in his water for 2 weeks. I read that the apple cider vinegar helps with breath also. Hopefully everything workout for you...both products are great to use.

    i was thinking the same. my boston gets a fish smell from his butt when he needs his glands done. no sarah does not smell when i give it to her. if its not the glands then you can cut back a pump so like instead of 2 give 1 a day.

    @mendomama - I've not experienced this either. I will tell you though that these two are back on Grizzly Salmon Oil after being off for a few weeks. I did not realize WHAT A DIFFERENCE it made in shedding (firstly) and appearance in coat (secondly). Huge difference. We shall never go "off" the salmon oil ever again!

    How to you tell if they need the glands expressed? They are both young and never had this smell before the fish oil.

    @mendomama What kind of tails do they have? Are they tight little screw tails? I'm thinking the fishy smell is not the grizzly salmon oil but their bottoms needing a good cleaning. Mac has a tight tail and I always kept it clean but it wasn't until a couple months ago that I noticed that an occassional wipe wasn't enough anymore because he had that fishy smell you're describing. Try first cleaning them out with baby wipes and then giving them a thorough drying with either witch hazel or rubbing alcohol. Sometimes I use a q-tip to put some Desitin up there as well. Good luck.

    They don't have much for tail pockets. I notice the smell right after a bath thou, and take special car to use soap and rinse under their tails then dry it very good too. I will start wiping there buts maybe more often and see if this helps.

    well sarah sits down and rocks back and forth and licks her paws when she needs them done. some will scoot along the floor. some will try to lick back there. if it continues you can always get them done and if nothings in there you will know its something else. or you could just stop the fish oil and see if it quits. some bullies need it and some dont. i have to get sarahs done once a month.

    I add a capsule at least 3 times a week and her coat looks awesome however no smells what so ever. Take the apple cider away may be is a bad combo.

    I give one fish oil pill per day (1000mg) and I haven't noticed any fishy odors coming from my guys.

    I just started using grizzly salmon oil, and can already tell a difference w Brie's coat.

    What is apple cider vinegar in their water supposed to be good for???
