    Thanks Kazzy! I just ordered the 64oz for $42.78 with shipping (got 10% off - sweet)! The Only Natural Pet Store was $43.99 for 32oz.

    There was also www.naturalk9supplies.com who often have a discount code at checkout and I could get the 32oz size for 28.00. However, they also have the 64oz size available too which I am assuming would work out less money.

    I am curious... Are you all giving your bullies the Salmon oil to treat dry skin? This winter has been awful for my poor Dixie. She developed this skin condition that caused blisters all over her body that eventually turned black. Took her to the vet and did a food change upon his recommendation, he felt she had a food allergy. I was feeding Taste of The Wild, now have her Nature's Balance limited ingredient formula. See really no difference... She's still scratching and cuasing scabs due to the scratching. I was thinking of getting oil and giving it to her in her food to condition her skin. Glad I read this post. do have a question, should I switch back to Taste of the wild, she's eaten it since we got her @ 6 mths of age.

    Salmon oil helps with skin/coat @Zulma and is very good to add to the diet.

    @teryf wow....that sounds terrifying! Is there anyway to show us a picture? Also did the vet give you a course of antibiotics to give as well?

    What was the protein source in both foods? also, sometimes your dog could be allergic to something like eggs, oats, barley.... but yes if this triggered in the middle of winter it probably is unlikely it is a seasonal allergy, although it is possible. You should probably try medicated shampoo, salmon oil, and a different protein source.

    Here's a nice link that gives info on the benefits of salmon oil. I just asked my vet (he's a bully vet) if I should you it and he said, Yes. My boy, Wilson, just turned 12 weeks.

    What Are the Benefits of Salmon Oil for Dogs? | eHow.com

    I wanted to add to that I had never heard of using it in all my years (because I never took so much time to research stuff for dogs). I wish I would have used it on our others before they passed for their coats.

    I use Herring oil and pour it on Silva's food but I plan on getting the salmon oil pills because I hate the messy oil and smell!

    I have a question, since Vegas eats NVI salmon, would it do any good to give him fish oil pills or would that be to much? I didn't know you could give a dog fish oil pills, I personally take triple strength Fish Oil pills from GNC. Are you saying I could be giving these to Vegas as well? What would be the benefits?? I take them due to having Psorasis. I don't know if it helps my skin or not, but I take them anyway.

    Hey Folks,

    Switched Dixie back to Taste of the Wild, salmon formula. Is there anyone close to Warren county, NJ that could help me out. My poor girl is tearing herself apart. I got medicated shampoo from the vet, don't have bottle on hand right now, but it was some pretty expensive stuff. I hope that I see a difference after making the food switch. For treats, I've been using fresh bananas and apples. I got wholistics cocunut oil to give her as a treat. I want to cry because I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I want to see my baby feeling better and looking healthy again.

    Yes, it would and should help him even more. Fish oil pills are the same, but Salmon oil is supposed to be better.
