Fish Oil

Here's a quick question:
How much fish oil should I mix into my itchy papillon's kibble?
I feed her WYSONG and I noticed that there was already fish oil high up on the ingredients list.

As Papillon's are not very large, you probably only need to supplement with about 150mg-200 mg of Omega 3 per day. You can purchase the Wysong Missing Link and that will supply all your papillon will need as well.

As I posted on your other thread, I have started my 22 lb. Eskimo on The Missing Link and it has helped his scratching considerably. Just be careful to follow instructions and work your way up to the recommended dose over a 2 week period. My Eskimo's skin is similar to your dog's - he does not have any skin conditions - just dry skin. But remember, it is a supplement - not quite the same as applying a topical cream/oil to my very dry skin. And the Missing Link must be refrigerated after opening - so buy the small bag as once opened it has a shelf life equal basically to number of doses for breed to dog - I bought the small bag. My guy gets 1 teaspoon.

I give Leon 700mg Ω3(EPA/DHA). He's 22lb. I've read I should give him some vit E as well.
