    Default Fish Oil

    What kind and how much fish oil do you give your pups?? I have a 2 1/2 yr B&T male who weighs 23 lbs. Thanks, Pat

    I buy boots 'essentials' (cheapy!) cod liver oil - it's a much lower dose than their 'normal' range & half the price!

    I also give my two tinned sardines (in oil) & keep the pil from the tin to add to their meals where they have no oils.

    I use "Grizzly" salmon oil. It comes with a pump on the bottle and I give one squirt per dog.

    Lipiderm gelcaps are the cheapest, easy to find (big box chain pet stores) , and easiest to give..
    Our Sophie won't take them in any shape, form or fashion, so we give her NaturVet brand liquid on the food and she gobbles it up. http://www.petguys.com/-797801036120.html

    Grizzly salmon oil is available in the UK as well. Can't remember exactly where I last got it from, but there's a link to it from the agilitynet site. I'm not sure how the price compares with Kronch.

    Thanks everyone for your suggestions. I was looking at the Grizzly Salmon oil so I might go that way. I appreciate your input.

    I use Kronch salmon oil too, from www.paddypaw.co.uk. Just a singe squirt daily or a few times a week, for cavalier sized dogs.

    Sonia- They probably do the same thing. The Omega 3 in the oil is great for their skin, coat, and for organ (heart) health. Check your cod liver oil and see what it says.

    The only thing is all our dogs have fish breath! But secretly I kinda like it.
