Hey gang i know this subject has been beat to death but i want to get a more current and updated list of the different omega supplements that you are giving your dogs. My local vet bottles his own supplement but i want some variety. Please comment guys. Ive seen Grizzley Salmon Oil mentioned a couple times.
Omega 3s are very delicate, so the best way to give them is to buy the human grade capsules. Usually there are enough omega 6s naturally occurring in the diet.
I used to use the Grizzly Salmon Oil in the pump dispenser but I got 2 bottles in a row that were rancid when I got them. I switched to another brand for awhile but after reading info on this site I have switched to the human omega 3 capsules. I have a Great Dane (155 lbs) so I go with products that pack a punch. I rotate between Carlson Salmon Oil Complete (a recommendation from HDM) and Swanson’s Maximum Stength Krill Oil.
And I agree with Patty. There should be enough omega 6s in the diet so I wouldn’t supplement with it.
Just to mix things up- my hound can’t have Salmon so I use Icelandic Pure Sardine Oil instead.
FHH is this the Iceland sardine oil that you use?
I have one dog who can’t have soy so he gets Vital Choice salmon oil. It’s costly so the other two get Carlson.
I give mine chia seed, sardine oil and krill oil.
Have you guys tried the Nordic naturals?
Ive used Nordic Naturals for myself, not the dogs. Natural citrus flavor….that could have soy for all I know so Boone won’t take it. The other two could, though.
Yep – that’s the one I use. Harry loves sardines so he loves this also. Salmon wreaks havoc with him.
Dogs rarely need any added omega 6s. They get plenty in any kind of food that they are being fed.
Wysong has a new Omega-3 product out: http://www.wysong.net/products/omega-3-spectrum-pet.php?offer=fs but I’ve yet to test it out on my mini-schnauzer. He’s been on this for the longest time: http://www.kalahealthinternational.com/dermatrix_en.htm
