    Just wondering if anyone here gives their dogs fish oil omega-3 for the EPA and DHA?? I was told by a breeder to give it to my dog for a healther coat? just checking to see if anyone else here does that. I want to but dont know how much to give? My dog weights 80 lbs. and is 1year 5 months.

    Yes, we give our dogs fish oil. Just a capsule with dinner every night. Dunno if it helps, my wife gives em so many supplements its impossible to say what might be doing what for them.

    i regulary give my dogs/cat vitamins...

    B, C, mineral supplements, etc.

    i give VIT-C in 500 mg minimum dosages to cats and dogs, but only when i see that exudate coming from their eyes (some people call em tears, they are NOT tears!)

    Vit-B everyday thru-out life of aminal...

    moderatwe overdoses of VIT's B & C are eliminated thru the urine track and will not harm dogs/cats

    PUHLEASE !!! do not use OTC meds on animals... aspirin is like poison to felines... and dogs stomachs are senitive to aspirin as well

    the fish oil and omega 3 acids are good for the body and it also help reduce shedding, I have a Jack Russel and they shed BBBBAAAAADDDDDD. We give him some stuff called Shed Stop .It has a lot of omega 3 and omega 6 acids that improve heathly coat and body thus reduceing shedding.It is all natural and the ingrediants are on the bottle .We got it at PetSmart.
