I am just changing her to Wellness puppy now but she's not that crazy about it ...

Thanks!
The lesser quality brands tend to have more bad fat because it adds "flavour" .

If your dog has no issues with her skin or coat then you probably don't need to supplement.

And, fyi my dogs didn't care for Wellness either.

Some people find success with olive oil, others use herring or salmon oil happily. The fish oils have the omega's as an added bonus. My dogs tired of the fish oils fairly quickly and didn't cotton to olive oil.
