    Default Fish oil??

    I have a question about the suppliment fish oil. I know there are several posts about it already. But here we go. Fish oil is taken for their skin and coat right?? My question is, what is a good kind?? How much do I give to Matilda who is 40 pounds?? Then how often?? Also, what is a good treat I can add into her dinner since she cannot have yogurt or cottage cheese??


    Who wouldn't love that face???

    It also helps to build their immune system as well. Lex and our lab, Bo, have been on fish oil for the last 2 weeks and we can already see a difference in their coats, its shiny and as well, less shedding!!! We give them one pill a day w some cheese, all I know it's the stuff we get from sams, its the big gel type pills.When jeff takes he also gives the boys one at the same time.
    Until one has loved an animal, part of their soul remains unawakened.

    Yes less shedding is a big one for sure. Cutty was using it and Mugsy not cuz he didnt like it and let me tell you this is the only way I would have known the diff. I put Mugs on it right away after bathing them and seeing such a huge diff in the boys and normally they shed the same amount. I always gave a reg fish oil pill like you would take, 1 a day for them both. Mugsy beign only 25 pounds always was fine taking it and cutty being over 50 was fine also. This is what cuttys breeder told me to give and it was fine until 1 day out of nowhere he decided he didnt want them anymore. Went to the salmon oil supplement that comes in the pump and now it just gets squeezed over their food so they dont have a choice.
    As for extra snacks (for in their food you mean?) any veggies would be good. canned pumpkin but that is getting harder to find this time of year.

    Oliver and Sebastian get the Grizzly Salmon Oil squirted on their food at night. Sebastian is supposed to get two squirts and Oliver three based on thier weight, but they tend to switch bowls when eating, so they both just get three squirts. Their coat looks really great, if it's cutting down on the shedding, I'd hate to see what they're like without ti. Oliver sheds really bad, but I've heard that for some reason white bullies tend to shed more than other colors.

    Princess Gracie started out with the salmon oil once a day but had bad salmon breath so we switched her to the pills once a day. She swallows it without having to disguise it at all... just toss it close to the event horizon staring up at me and it disappears into the abyss.

    Thre are Omega-3-6 supplements (chewables) available exclusively for Dogs online. I would not ever use human-grade preparations of fish oils for dogs.
