My dogs get anchovie/sardine oil not salmon oil.
It has 2400 mg fish oil per serving.
This provides 432 mg EPA, and 288mg DHA

They get a dose a day, and a month supply for 3 dogs cost about $6.00
It comes in softgels, so no mess, smell, or fuss, and the dogs love 'em.
It is Rexall Maximum Strength Fish Oil in the supplement dept. at Wal-Mart.

If you want to use Salmon Oil it is good stuff, so go right ahead. But for my dogs, and my $$ I don't. Just throwing options out, NOT doggin' Salmon Oil at all.

Do your dogs just eat them or do you have to wrap them in meat or something?

Save yourself some $ and just feed fish a few times a week...mine get white fish filets, sardines, canned mackeral, or canned salmon three times a week. Vicki does get extra fish oil pills in spring, summer and fall (I rotate between salmon oil and sardine/anchovy/mackeral oil) because of her allergies, but Solomon gets his omega's strictly thru canned fish and meat.

Sonia just eats them as is. I used to break the softgels on her food, but it was messy, and I would come to work with my fingers smelling like Salmon. :yucky: Then I realized she'll eat them whole.

You can get them at walmart. They are capsules in the pharmacy, next to all the vitamins and supplements. Thats what i use, one pill a day.

They LOVE them straight out of the bottle. It's almost like giving them a treat.

I would love to be able to feed fish regularly, and they do get jack mackerel when I can afford it. BUT...

Jack Mackerel costs:
.80 per dog per day X 3 dogs= 2.40 per day X 15 feedings= $36.00 per mo.

Anchovie/Sardine oil costs:
.05 per dog per day X3 dogs= .15 per day X 30 feedings= $4.50 per mo.

So it would cost me over 8 times more, to feed just 1/2 as much.

Originally I gave the fish oil every other day, but now do it daily and the coat difference is the biggest thing I noticed. Smooth, shiny, and soft. :)

Abbie Lou has allergies (allergic to her CAT SIBLINGS, among other things), and in addition to antigen injections, we've added salmon oil (Grizzy brand) to her diet. No more dandruff or weird little scabbies on her skin. LOVELY, glossly, soft coat. And I think Lou says it adds a YUM factor, too.

The salmon oil that I use, Iceland Pure, publishes their test results. Toxin levels in their oil are considered untraceable. And their bottle is cool.
