|A dog trainer friend recently told me that I should add canola oil to Mandi's kibble to help her gain weight. What does everyone else think of this? Can dogs digest canola oil? Is there a better alternative? I did a google search but couldn't find much.|

|Mandi, a lot of dog foods (even high quality ones) use canola oil as a fat source in their kibble. It's not harmful, and of course it adds calories if a dog is skinny and needs some extra. But if you can afford it, fish oil is a better choice because it provides omega-3s also.|

|canola oil is a cheaper oil and is linked to heart disease. I won't use it. I would try fish oil.|
