Which Omega 3/Fish Oil supplement is the best? (3V Caps, DermCaps, Nordic Naturals, etc)

We use to use 3V Caps but can not find them where we moved to. So we are trying to find a replacement.

If your dog is being fed a proper diet (raw, home-cooked, or a high-quality grain-free dog food), she shouldn't need any supplements and most do more harm than they do good. If she has a medical condition she takes supplements for, I'd ask your vet about which would be the most appropriate.

i agree completely with Bear. Unless there's a specific reason, this could end up causing harm inadvertently.

There is a dog in our neighborhood who almost died from pancreatitis. Turns out the culprit was the fish oil that her owner had been giving her for the past four years. She just didn't need it and the fat built up so much her body couldn't handle it. She told me in conversation that her vet said this is fairly common with fish oils. It's a case of loving our dogs and wanting them to have the best health but not really knowing how their bodies process everything.

Dieta

true the diet should not give them dry skin that could be a food that is too grainy- like corn and rice.
But, if you want to use anything fish.... use the Salmon oil it should be pure and I think the best company is www.grizzlypetproducts.com
Fish oil is not that good and the salmon oil will make the best result.
The salmon oil is a liquid you can just pour a little in the pan.
