Thanks for the suggestion, Karen.

Karen, how much are you giving Kodi? I just ordered the 1000 mg capsules and wondering about the dosage for a 13 lb dog. Thanks. Hoping this will help with Chloe's flaking.

My vet said one capsule a day was fine. I don't think more can hurt them, except that they are high in calories for a little capsule!

Kodi just eats them straight, but if Chloe won't try wrapping it in a small piece of cheese.

BTW, Kodi doesn't take them for his skin. (which is not a problem) He takes them (along with glucosamine) for joint health, since he works hard, and we want him to remain healthy and in working shape for as long as possible.

Thanks for the advice. Not, knowing better, we gave her a whole pill and it gave her the runs, so I think we need to start small and build up the dosage. Also, we coated it in peanut butter because she was not liking the texture of the gummy pill at all. So for now she shares one pill with her two sisters (squeezed out on their kibble). Thanks for the info.
