    Wow thats some nightly routine Brian!!!

    I also do the dogs teeth.....to the best of my ability!!!
    Right i will start their capsule tonite on their evening meal!
    The salmon oil should be here tomorrow...possibly...so I will see how they do on that!
    Am hopful that it wil make a difference to the pups flaky skin and possibly make my other dogs coat more glossy.

    If i wasnt epileptic i would take some EPOil myself
    Thanks for the advice!x

    As "MisathePooh" said, these soluble vitamins in cod liver oil can be toxic and also can be retained in the liver. I give mine fish oil, usually one tablet every second day (sometimes everyday).

    I was also wondering about the benefit of EP oil for dogs with DECC - a friend of mine has fibromyalgia and she suffers from very dry eyes (as indeed do I) and a friend of hers recommended to try EP - and sure enough she said it really helped with the dry eyes. I haven't had a chance to try it myself though, but I did wonder about giving it to dogs- although neither of mine have dry eyes at all.

    We tried lots of different lotions and potions for our eldests dry skin, it was flaky but not bad enough for the vet to give us any medication so we looked into lots of different types of tablets you can use but the best advice we have ever been given is to give him a tablespoon of bog standard sunflower oil over his food daily. Don't ask me why it works but it is fantastic!!
