    Default Salmon oil vs fish oil gel pills????

    I have been using Salmon Oil with a pumper top, you just add one "squirt" per 15 pounds. But it's nearly gone, so I'm trying to decide if I should get more of it (quite expensive), or use fish oil pills? I know some of you use the fish oil gel pills, and my questions are... is that as good for them as Salmon Oil? How do you know how much to give? Do they just eat the whole thing, or do you open the gel things and just add the oil to their food?

    Not too sure about nutrition comparison, but I remember my vet telling me to avoid anything with cod liver oil because it will make our bullies smell like fish. I'm guessing it'll come out of their pores. I give Stiggy wild alaskan salmon oil gel pills, which I bought from Costco. At first, I used to pierce a small hole so that he's able to smell it first before eating so it entices him more. But now he'll take it as it is. I used to religiously give him 1 in the morning and 1 at night. But now, it's whenever I remember.

    I still like the Grizzly pet products salmon oil. I spent hours on the computer going through every supplier I could find and www.betterhealthinternational.com will give you a 32oz container for aprox $27.89 (including shipping).

    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.

    Thanks!@kazzy220: I just ordered the 64 oz. from the better health site, it was only $37.70 and $5. for shipping! That is a GREAT price since the one I got from Petco last time was $25. for 16 oz. I will keep this pumper top bottle, since the 64 oz. comes in a big jug I'll just fill up the pumper bottle.

    What we got from Petsmart is Nutri-vet Wild Alaskan Salmon Oil. It was almost $30.00 for a 16oz bottle.
    It smells REALLY STRONG when we give it to her, plus she always seems to lick on her legs more when we give it to her (we have tried a couple times) so we are thinking HRH is allergic to it.

    Has anyone else had this kind of reaction?

    I went to Petco tonight to buy some Salmon Oil. Call me a bad
    owner but I walked out with none. Its way to expensive IMO.

    @bfletch13: Check out the first of the two links up at the top of this thread. They have all sizes and their prices are really good. Or you can get the fish oil (NOT cod liver oil) gel pills at Wal-Mart and just give her one of those everyday. That's what we give Arrow now. My husband bought some today, it says an adult dose is 3 a day, and Arrow weighs what some adults weigh. So he's going to get 3 a day.
    @LariP: My girls have been getting salmon oil in their breakfast since July and no ill effects at all.

    Salmon Oil is the better way to go. I use Salmon Oil with my pug and will be using it with my new bully. The Cod Liver Oil makes any dog stink... and it takes weeks to shake that stink....a particularly bad smell to have on your dog if you're interior / back country camping

    I was thinking about getting some salmon oil for Guinness as I think this will help with Guinness's dry skin. Am I right to presume this?

    @wfd38383 - Yup, that's correct. It's really good for their skin in general, even for the itchies. What kind of shampoo do you use? That also helps the dry skin issues.

    @bfletch13 it is horrendously expensive to get it from petco. That's why I'd look into getting it online. Carolina's Pet Pantry, and the two websites I had in my previous post all work out about the same price ... it's approx $27 for the 32oz bottle. Our local supplier which is Pet Supplies sold the 16oz one for about the same price!!
