    DefaultOpinions on fish oil

    I read about feeding fish oil to dogs with dry skin. What do you know about this?

    Fish oil provides a source for Omega-3s fatty acids. These not only help nourish the skin and coat, but fish oil also contains nutrients for proper immune function. Omega 3 oils are also thought to be beneficial for dogs w/ inflammatory issues (skin, joint, IBD etc).

    I believe it will take 3 - 4 months of use to see a difference.

    Ages ago someone suggested feeding canned fish in natural oil. I do this about 3 times a week. Even when Kassa had cancer I kept feeding it to her and up until the day she died her coat was beautiful.

    When I got Ernie his coat was dull and flakey. Now it is lovely.

    I asked the vet at Diamond (I feed Kirkland C&R, made by Schell & Kampeter who make Diamond) about it and she said it would be a good complement the formula.

    So my Puff (YF, AKC field line, 63 lbs., dob: 8-'01) gets one a day along with one tab of Glucosamine & Chondroitin. We use Kirkland (Costco) Fish Oil caps containing 1k mg of fish oil which has 180 mg EPA, 120 mg DHA.

    When giving fish oil, it is recommended to supplement with vitamine E. Some capsules already contain the correct combination, if not you may want to add some.
