Default Anyone Supplement with Salmon Oil?

Hello

I've been recently looking into the properties of Salmon Oil with dogs.

Monty gets the occasional bout of dry skin and dandruff and is often having a bit of a scratch (all up to date with flea treatment so not that!). I read somewhere that Salmon Oil can help treat dry skin and improve the general condition of the coat. It's not serious enough to take him to the vet and is only every now and then which is why I thought supplements might help.

I was also interested in it as Monty is sometimes a fussy pup with his food and I wondered if a teaspoon of salmon oil may also help with that and kill two birds with one stone.

Wondering if anyone on here uses it and would recommend?

Weird - I just started this week.

Mason loves it. Devours his food and then likes his bowl. Even return to his bowl for another lick.

Spooky!

Glad to hear it's going down a storm with Mason and hopefully it will make the food more palatable for Monty.

May I ask what brand you're using? I have read the fish4dogs one is supposed to be good but in my naivety I just assume salmon oil is salmon oil?

I was browsing zooplus and saw it on special. I did a bit of reading and it seems to have many benefits.

One thing Mason is not is a fussy eater so the taste is a bonus for him.

To me salmon oil is salmon oil. The one I got is Nutrivet Wild Salmon Oil for Dog or Cat 1 L.

Actually turns out to be cheaper still on Amazon.

I had a Kronch salmon oil in a pump top bottle. I can't say I noticed a huge difference in Coco's skin or fur but it certainly didn't do her any harm. I found the bottle quite messy though but other oil supplements have been just as messy.

I think some varieties are supposed to be better than others and "cold pressed" seems to be the buzz word at the moment. 500ml is usually around 13-15.

You could try cod liver oil capsules as a cheaper alternative.

Been using the fish4dogs salmon oil for 6 months 3 teaspoons a day poured over kibble - certainly helps with the dry skin and I also think helps with Jakes mobility

Not me, but mine do always get Pilchards in tomato sauce for Sunday lunch, so they do get a certain amount of fish body oil in that.

Hi

I've been thinking about getting some kind of oil but for joint help in future years for Archie - would salmon oil be suitable for joints too?

Thanks

Many foods these days cover "joint help" making it unnecessary. Add to which very few Labradors actually suffer from hip problems. The fact that Labradors are far and away the numerically largest breed means vets see more Labrador problems than any other breed gives an untrue picture. As an example, Springer Spaniels have a 15 year median of 10 and Border Collies12, Beagles 16, Sussex Spaniels 34 and Otter Hounds 46! Labradors on the other hand have a 15 year median is just 9, we are well into the best quarter of all breeds!

I'm really not into supplements, either for dogs or humans. with a good quality food they are simply not needed. But saying that, as I said earlier, I do feed a small tin of Pilchards in Tomato sauce at Sunday lunchtime, as a treat, and have done for very many years. (And they finished off my yesterday's sausage casserole for breakfast this morning. )

Regards, John
