    Default Fish Oil Pills?

    Happy 4th of July everyone!!!
    So I was wondering if any could recommend a fish oil pill for Lily.
    I got some from the vet but they are way to expensive to keep buying them from there.
    I don't know how many mg to get either.
    Lily is 2 1/2 years old and she weighs 38lbs.

    I bought a nice big jar at Costco once. Showed it to my vet, and he told me that I needed to give 6 per day to equal the amount needed! I was like ....whut?! He said a good salmon oil is way better. I had already used grizzly salmon oil so I went back to it.

    Now I'm using coconut oil just for a change. The bullies seem to love it and I can put it on their dry noses too. Putting salmon oil on a dry nose just isn't ideal, not wanting a fish face

    I'm just not sure if it has as much benefit as salmon oil does.

    I'm starting slow with 1 tsp on their food, and I use my finger to rub it on their nose. It's very dry here in Az so our noses get crusty fast. Seems to really be helping already. I bought the big jar of extra virgin coconut oil at Costco. Had it for weeks I swear it doesn't look like I've used any lol!!
