In regards to Flaxseed oil, myself and other Golden owners have found that this oil GIVES our dogs the itchies. Don't ask my why, but it does. I would stay clear of Flaxseed oil! I use to advocate the stuff, but not anymore since one of my girls started itching bad. I figured it out, thank heavens and all is good again. I do use fish oil though.
