In this month's issue of "The Whole Dog Journal" it is stated that "flaxseed oil and carmelina oil are not good choices to replace fish oil."

This is because flaxseed oil is high in alpha linoleic acid (ALA) which the dogs then have to convert to EPA(eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) which are readily available in fish oils.

Hope that explains it.
