EFA's

I took Kodi for his yrly vet check and everything was fine, except for his allergies. But I was concerned because both Kodi's and Shelby's coats have gotten very dry. So, the vet suggested another product. I told him if it smelled like fish, no way. I had to throw out the last $50 bottle he suggested. He said this one was by Pfizer and they gave a refund if not satisfied. So, I bought it and so far, very good. I have noticed a significant difference in their coats - they are not dry. In fact, Kodi's feels oily. The test will be to see what happens after their baths. I'll keep you posted.

So what is it?

My dogs have hated every fish supplement, it makes them have loose stools. I have found that Neem shampoo makes their coats less dry. Keep us posted.

I didn't just get havanese, I got a lifestyle!

I'll be interested to see, also. If it seems to be making a difference, would you please post all the info so that others of us can track it down?

Thanks!

I love this stuff , it was suggested by Sabine at The Dog Food Project. Molly has glorious hair with this. One of the three healthiest suppliments you can give a dog . http://www.seapet.com/index.php?cPat...34706e07ed0f32

it really doesn't smell like fish Michele? I have taken to giving them their fish oil in capsule form rolled in cheese because I can't stand the smell of the seapet on their beards and all over my rugs...LOL. But I wish there were something other than cheese I could roll them in.

It really doesn't smell or Kodi would not go near it. They don't even realize there is something added to their food. The funny thing is that if I am eating grilled salmon, Kodi will want it.

Dave, I just seem to have heightened sense of smell lately... but I got these capsules recommended from sabine as well... best part is we all can take them...me, DH and the pups. they are made by NOW. The only thing is I also have to give them vitamin E now too...as the seapet liquid is the only Omega 3 with enough vitamin E. She feels strongly that dogs need enough Vitamin E to utilize the Omega 3's.

Yes Missy that's right. With Seapet you don' t need vitamin E but if you are using Now Brand it is wise to add vit E. Good for you , fish oil especially cold water wild fish is better than farm raised fish. Yes this is very good for humans to take as well. My wife takes it for her arthritis and it helps alot.
