    Hi Phil, I did use Salmon Oil last year, but Blossom didn't tolerate it, that's how I found out she was allergic to salmon as well as chicken. I switched Blossom to Cod liver Oil, and she was okay with it, Dozer did well on the Salmon Oil, but once I finished the bottles of what I had, I switched them both to Coconut Oil, to make it easier by having them both on the same source of Omegas. I can't remember the name of the brand, I bought it at the Woofstock Dog Show at one of the kiosks. I give them 1 Tbsp. of Omega Oils on their evening kibble, there are a lot of health benefits to using Omega 3 Fatty Acids, such as its good for the skin and coat, it's good for the bones and joints, and also for the brain. I find that their coat is soft and shiny, I don't know if it makes any difference in their joints, but I feel that it is a preventative supplement, and it is natural as opposed to using medications. The benefits may prevent problems like Arthritis later as they age.


    The Health The Health Benefits Of Coconut Oil For Dogs


    by Dogs Naturally Magazine in Nutrition And Diet






    Although supplements can be a confusing topic for many pet owners, most dog owners have heard of the benefits of feeding fish oils. There are however, a variety of oils that you can also use to your dog’s benefit, each with different actions and benefits.


    Coconut oil consists of more than 90% saturated fats, with traces of few unsaturated fatty acids, such as monounsaturated fatty acids and polyunsaturated fatty acids. Most of the saturated fats in coconut oil are Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs). The main component (more than 40%) of MCTs is lauric acid, followed by capric acid, caprylic acid, myristic acid and palmitic. Coconut oil also contains about 2% linoleic acid (polyunsaturated fatty acids) and about 6% oleic acid (monounsaturated fatty acids).


    Most of the coconut oil benefits come from the MCTs. For example, the lauric acid in coconut oil has antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-fungal properties. Capric and caprylic acid have similar properties and are best known for their anti-fungal effects.


    In addition, MCTs are efficiently metabolized to provide an immediate source of fuel and energy, enhancing athletic performance and aiding weight loss. In dogs, the MCTs in coconut oil balance the thyroid, helping overweight dogs lose weight and helping sedentary dogs feel energetic.


    According to Dr. Bruce Fife, certified nutritionist and naturopathic doctor, coconut oil gently elevates the metabolism, provides a higher level of energy and vitality, protects you from illness, and speeds healing. As a bonus, coconut oil improves any dog’s skin and coat, improves digestion, and reduces allergic reactions.


    Fed regularly to pets, coconut oil may have multiple benefits:


    Skin Conditions


    Clears up skin conditions such as eczema, flea allergies, contact dermatitis,and itchy skin
    Reduces allergic reactions and improves skin health
    Makes coats become sleek and glossy, and deodorizes doggy odor
    Prevents and treats yeast and fungal infections, including candida
    Disinfects cuts and promotes wound healing
    Applied topically, promotes the healing of cuts, wounds, hot spots, dry skin and hair, bites and stings
    Digestion


    Improves digestion and nutrient absorption
    Aids healing of digestive disorders like inflammatory bowel syndrome and colitis
    Reduces or eliminates bad breath in dogs
    Aids in elimination of hairballs and coughing
    Immune System, Metabolic Function, Bone Health


    Contains powerful antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-fungal agents that prevent infection and disease
    Regulates and balance insulin and promotes normal thyroid function
    Helps prevent or control diabetes
    Helps reduce weight, increases energy
    Aids in arthritis or ligament problems
    Integrative Veterinarian and Naturopathic Doctor, Dr. Karen Becker, says “Medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) have been shown to improve brain energy metabolism and decrease the amyloid protein buildup that results in brain lesions in older dogs. Coconut oil is a rich source of MCTs. I recommend 1/4 teaspoon for every 10 pounds of body weight twice daily for basic MCT support.”


    Why not give coconut oil a try and introduce it to your dog? It offers many benefits for your dog and is a more sustainable and less toxic source of oils than fish.

    I use grizzly salmon oil. I put two pumps on the food at each feeding. I also use coconut oil. I used to use fish oil and cod liver oil pills, but they burped something awful!

    Yes I've given salmon oil. Grizzly is probably the best. I've also tried the grizzly pollock oil and right now I'm using coconut oil. The benefits are a nice shiny coat and good skin. It really seems to help with shedding, keep away dry skin and skin problems.

    I use salmon oil also, I use the recommended amount on the bottle. I'm not sure of the brand, its whatever Hollywood Feed carries.
    For sassy its 2 pumps at each feeding (twice daily) I cannot tell a difference from using it and not, but Sassy loves it!! My out side dog (rat terrier) Squirt loves it also, and will lick it off the spoon. I do notice that Squirts coat is a little healthier and shiny, but cannot tell a difference in Sassy.

    At the moment I don't give salmon oil, but the bottle that I've bought allready is salmon. Now it's hemp oil that they get and coconut oil. After that it could be something else or a mixture. I have always given oils, so I don't know how they'd be without.
