I've heard that adding omega 3 fatty acids - tuna, pink salmon - to your dogs diet is very good for them. Anybody have any thoughts on this? I'm thinking of adding some to each serving of my dogs kibble. I use Canidae All Stage kibble....thanks for any input...rob

Omega 3s are VERY good for dogs.
Salmon has your bed omega 3s in it but feeding to much can give them the runs.
Feeding most fish in good amounts will cause a dog to have the runs.
You do not have to feed them fish to get omega 3s, you can go to your local drug store or Walmart and go purchase fish oils capsules, either pop a whole in the capsule and squeeze out the oil into the food or if they are good at eating pills just put the whole thing into there food. You can give this everyday where with real fish you can not unless in SMALL doses.

If you have any other questions regarding it, please ask

Yeah we just use the capsules although the dogs love the fish. Go to GNC or wherevever and you can get a bottle of 1000-2000 pretty cheap!!

If you decided to give your dogs fish oil mak sure you research it and find one with low polluten in it. I would try to find one that the fish are from the wild as oppsed to farm raised. Check out the colour of the oil it should be light red/orange. Make sure that the product has both DHA and EPA in equall parts.

Take one of the capsules for the 8 month old and older
Take a capsule and squeeze half

you only want to do this on ONE MEAL only due to the dog can get the runs. But also be prepared for them to get them until there body gets use to getting the oil. Not all dogs do this

I got these gel caps today......I was wondering how you guys give them to your dogs. I cut them open and put the oil over their food. I was wondering if you guys have any suggestions on giving them in a treat form......but I don't like giving my dogs treats or tablescraps......any healthy food that I could put the cap in? I'm giving Titus 1000mg and Tequila 1200mg...but it says on the bottle that the 1200mg caps have 720mg of Omega 3 Fatty Acids with DHA & EPA, and the 1000mg caps have only 420mg of Omega 3 Fatty Acids with DHA & EPA. Is there anything raw I could stuff these caps into? I don't want our dogs to have any processed food. I was thinking maybe abuiot cutting them open and adding to their water since they both drink tons of water. I want only the best for them....Are these the right caps? It just doesn't seem like enough for them but maybe it's just me...any thoughts? Suggestions? Thanks in advance! Rob

Here's the bottle:

WHOLISTIC™ Wild, Deep Sea Salmon Oil
The Wholistic Pet

Our Salmon Oil is the finest quality human-grade, salmon oil from the body of fresh-caught salmon.
The Wholistic Pet Supplements

The Wholistic Pet™ Deep Sea Salmon Oil is the finest grade of human-grade, deep-sea salmon oil available. The salmon used to produce this superior oil are wild, free-swimming salmon caught directly from the ocean. They are not farm-raised salmon and therefore not subject to the possible pollution or
contamination inherently present in commercial farming streams, penned ocean cages or other
closed communities. And the taste is superlative!

The Wholistic Pet™ Deep Sea Salmon Oil is clear brilliant light red/orange with a light, airy aroma. The
characteristic color actually comes from the metabolic breakdown of antioxidants that the wild
salmon captures and consumes in his diet! Cold-processed in a state-of-the art facility located
directly on the premises where the fish are actually caught, the body oils are captured through a
patented-process designed to ensure purity and freshness. To increase stability, Wholistic™ Deep Sea Salmon Oil is further stabilized with pure, natural Vitamin E. It is the next best thing to eating salmon straight from the ocean.Your pet will love the taste!

What exactly is Omega 3? Omega 3 is a polyunsaturated fat that is liquid at room temperature. Fat is an important and necessary part of any diet yet not all fats are the same. Some are bad; some are good. Saturated fats such as those found in meats are "bad" for health but unsaturated fats, such as those found in fish, are "good".Omega 3 fatty acid is one of the two types of "good"
polyunsaturated fats (Omega 6 being the other).

Salmon oil provides the Omega 3 fatty acids in the body-ready form of DHA and EPA (docosahexaenoic
acid and eicosahexaenoic acid), needed by virtually all tissue cells on a second-to-second basis.
Essential to life and good health, Omega-3 fatty acids protect against disease and can treat illness.They are considered essential fatty acids (EFA's), which means that they are essential to human health but cannot be manufactured by the body.This means that Omega-3 must be obtained from the diet.

Those will work fine. Have you tried feeding the capsule by itself? My dog actually thinks they're treats. Maybe you can coat them with yogurt to make them more enticing. I do usually purchase wild salmon oil though and just squirt it over his food. Puncturing the capsules will allow you to do the same. Oil in water is not going to work.

Thanks.....for the advice. I thought the oil in water would work because they lick the bowl completely dry. I trust what you say, but why won't the oil in the water work?
