    I wouldn't chance it. Bully's are so allergic already. Allergies are like a pile of blocks. Each block is an allergy. You are building a tower on a carpet where it isn't to steady to start with. Each block of allergy that you add the more unsteady the tower becomes and with each block you get a symptom itchy eyes, teary eyes, itchy paws, hives. One day you put that next block of allergy on there and the whole tower falls over and you have a very sick dog. So even if your dog doesn't show a reaction to the salmon oil you already know it is an allergy block why put it in your tower when there are other options.
    Why do you want to switch to something different?

    Needs to say virgin coconut oil The recommended dose is a teaspoon of coconut oil per 10 pounds of dog, or you can give a table spoon per 30 pounds. Start with about 1/4 the recommended dosage and build up to the recommended level over 3-4 weeks, as sometimes flu-like symptoms can appear if you start to fast

    Hi, my Blossom is also allergic to salmon oil, so we give her cod liver oil, but since Major is allergic to fish, you could give him coconut oil for the omegas.

    A great brand & not too expensive is EFA Gold by Nature's Way. I found it at
    Walgreen's or CVS and I think, at Walmart...call them to ask if they carry it.

    It has all the things to want in your coconut oil, organic, pure extra virgin, non
    GMO, cold pressed & unrefined & unbleached...WHEW!

    It's great to take for all of you, great to cook with & can heat at high heats.

    I started giving Brutus (55 lbs) 1/2 teasp & mixed into his am meal as it helps
    give energy, for 2 weeks then 1 teasp after that each am feeding.

    It's great to mix in mix, juices, smoothies for y'all's consumption, I still just
    take a big teasp each day, it seems to do the trick! It's a great skin & hair
    moisterizer.

    RIP beloved boy.

    Princess Gracie did not do well on either salmon oil nor coconut oil but does well on Fish oil pills. One a day.

    Also milled flax seeds are a great source of omega3s, I find it at my local grocery store, and sprinkle a tablespoonful on Chunks kibble (I also sneak it into human foods when hubby isn't looking) It's not very expensive, lasts a while and adds fiber in as well

    Does coconut oil help with the shedding like salmon oil does? *sorry if I missed that somewhere*
