Omega 3 fish oil

I have a lab x puppy who has dryish skin right now. I have her on a good food that I mixed 25% wet food 75% dry food. I was told that fish oil is great in helping with coat and skin. she is about 17 pounds how. Has anyone ever used this before? Does it work? She gets brushed a few times a week and it seems the more i brush her the more her skin flakes.

Salmon oil is a GREaT addition for the coat! As are a couple raw eggs a week mixed with their food.

What food are you feeding?

on the Grizzley salmon oil pump bottle there is a guide line by weight to go by.

I only start giving them this just before we had to turn on the heat, but I know of people that give it to them all year long.
if the bottle says to give 2 squirts per weight, I would give them 1 to start with then increase it. just to make sure that it did not give them the runs.
