Bailey has very itchy skin this time of year. I was looking through old threads and saw some people use fish oil. I am going to try this and hope it gives her some relief. Do you use human fish oil capsules or are there ones specially formulated for dogs? Also, how much would I give Bailey? She is about a year and a half and 58 pounds. Thanks for you advice!
I buy Costco brand fish oil pills and give each dog one a day. Also supplement with cans of sardines several times a week.

I buy the human ones, too- Nature's Bounty. I give Caleb 1,000 mg once a day. He also gets a can of sardines (in either water or oil) once a week. Oh- I buy Salmon Oil, not Fish.
Murphy gets the canned sardines too. He gobbles them up. No more "dandruff" for him!!!! =)
Sardines have worked like a charm for Diesel too!
I got a large bottle of fish oil (oil) when I ordered my last bottle of Cosequin. I didn't start using it right away, but started when I got Baxter. Emilu has always had some "skin issues", and battle "doggy smell" alot - I think that she is much better since starting on the fish oil.
