Liquid Sockeye Salmon Oil - 8 Fluid oz

this is the only one i can find without flavouring.
You are my nutrition guru and I bow before you!!! I will probably order some of that. So far my boys get canned fish and go crazy for it but I told them that you said it was bad for them and they have to give it up for the real thing. So we have to make a trip to the asian market and find us some fish that actually looks like a fish and introduce them to it. They won't be happy! Rocky goes nuts for his canned salmon.

I checked out the Icelandic Pure anchovy and sardine oil and every reviewer absolutely loves it and it comes in a metal pump which is suppose to be better then plastic. But it does contain the mixed tocopherols and since it is from Norway, I'm not sure if theirs are soy based or not.

chowder, the salmon oil i have from him is 1000 mg per three capsules.


i think there are liquid fish oils...if you want....i shall see if i can find you a clean one....
This is one of those instances that you really have to pay attention to how much of something you have to use when trying to find one that won't break the bank. The fish/salmon oils I feed now are 1000 or 1200....each dog gets one a day. If I buy the Mercola capsules, it won't take long with two dogs to go through a bottle.

i give my dogs human grade, marie...so for both of them and me.
Can you tell my grandaughter isn't here today? I have time to read a bunch today. Boone does not do well with soy, that I know so I will be safe and buy the Vital stuff. He's off to the groomers now, getting a bath and spiffying up. Wasn't too happy I left him there but he'll feel good when he's done!

but isn't he doing just fine with what you're giving him?

read what i wrote above. if the vitamin E is a synthetic or double distilled tocopherol....then there should not be a problem....

you're using wholistic pet, right?
He is still paw licky, which is why he is on potato free food for the first time. Wondering if it could be soy, soy has given him an ear infection. No, he is on Nature's Bounty (I think that's it) fish oil, doesn't say soy but has tocopherols for preservative. The only Wholistic Pet Product we use is the Digest All Plus.

Re,
I have not tried eggs with either dog, I wanted to make sure we had a good couple months of the THK/Darwins rotation going fine, which it is. They have had eggs scrambled only and they tolerated them just fine. Does that mean I can just toss a whole egg, shell and all, into their bowls?
Darwins does not have a fish blend, unfortunately but they suggested to me to give a full frozen, no tail sardine. They said to feed once a week in place of a meal. I have not done that yet, wanted to make sure the rotation was working. I hope I can find a whole sardine, I have not looked yet. They do sell tripe which I am going to order next time.

I think that I will try one small bottle of the Iceland Pure Anchovy and Sardine and let you know how that one goes. Brisco is currently taking it so I know that he has been exposed to it already, whereas he has never had salmon oil yet. I don't want to change too much on him at once. Also, I can get it through Amazon and I have a ton of credit with them from trading in books and DVD's through their trade-in program! Not a great reason but I like free things!

I'll get one of those and one of the salmon from Vital Choice because Rocky is so sensitive and see which one they do better on.

no. don't just toss them an egg......take one egg and divvy it up amongst them...to start......eggs can be rich.

as to sardines? i think primal sells sardines...in 2 lb. chubs....which you can get at most boutique type doggie stores....a lot easier than buying a sardine...and hoping they eat it....

and absolutely take your time. believe me, they have plenty of storage.....these are fat solubles. they don't get peed out if not used.....so you have months....to figure it out. there is no rush.

when you start tripe, again, a spoonful.....it never has to be a complete meal.....but it's very nicely rounded out with lots of nutritional goodies.

are you giving them anything with which to 'clean' their teeth?
Darwins sells tripe as well, which is where I'll buy it. They don't suggest it as a meal either. They get bones to gnaw on, got my last batch from Darwins as well.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS GREAT THREAD AND INFO!!!! I also buy the Iceland pure sardine and anchovy and never knew that it contained soy so now I'm bummed! I haven't really used it since I switched to raw 4 months ago but just recently purchased a bottle to start Bella on. The reason I put her on raw was because of allergies and dog kibble wasn't helping her no matter what I tried and I tried ALL the top grain free brands. I'm not sure if she is reactive to soy but I believe yeast feeds off of it and she had a lot of yeast issues at one point so now I'm not sure what to do....What do you suggest or think?

I think I need to start adding in some fish oil. Rocky is scratching quite a bit and his coat is dry this summer. We have 100 degree heat constantly and he is in air conditioning non-stop which doesn't help. My new little guy is on "Icelandic Pure" anchovy and sardine oil which the breeder recommends but is VERY expensive for 3 dogs, two of which are 90 pounds! I will get it if it is that really that good for them and will help Rocky's fur. Are there any other brands and varieties that you recommend? I know that he can't have flax oils, he will itch even more. Anything else he seems to be okay with.
I use Nordic Naturals Omega 3 Oil on Aspen. If you rotate between that and Nutiva Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, it wouldn't be a bad idea. I do this and his coat is fabulous!!

Re, sorry I'm a bit confused... So the d alpha tocopherol in the Carlson fish oil I use for Ruby is actually synthetic vitamin e, not soy based?
