Question Timberwolf - Salmon oil

I went out and bought some Timberwolf Salmon Oil tonight. As it is so very dry around here this winter, Beamers coat is sooo staticy and dry..
The guy at the store said this stuff works wonders on his dogs. Anyone have anything positive or negative to say about this stuff?

I gave him some tonight, but made his beard stink like salmon oil.. lol..

Milo's breeder had recommended that. I haven't tried it yet, but I probably should. His coat, normally silky soft and shiny, is relatively dry looking and definitely loaded with static. Now let me think . . . stinky breath . . . static dry coat??? You try it first and keep me posted.

Hahahahaha.. okok.. I'll let you know how it does on Beamers coat.. lol

Instead of puting it on his plate so his beard gets all in it, I think I will try to get him to lick it off a spoon or something to try and keep it off his face...

I haven't used the Timberwolf brand, but I was warned against the strong smell of the Grizzly brand. I have been using the Kronch brand for over a year and it has very little smell. I mix it into the food of the one dog that gets it regularly and she doesn't smell.

Ryan, I couldn't stand smell of salmon oil and Benji didn't like it much. I started giving him olive oil and it works great. I add one teaspoon every other day or so to his kibble.

Best, Poornima

Ryan,
I have been using it for about 2 weeks now so it is too early to tell the difference yet. Their breaths do smell a little for a short time but after the bully stick smell everything else pales.......haha
It is suppose to help their hearts stay strong too.

I give Kubrick salmon oil every day with his kibble. It does have a fishy smell, but it doesn't really stay on him or his breath after he eats it.

I give both dogs Kronch Salmon oil daily and they love it. The directions are 0-12 pounds 1 pump stroke, which is about 1/2 teaspoon.

I started doing it along time ago when Casper was itching and he doesn't itch anymore (except his ears). Both dogs don't itch too much.

They think it is a treat, they both get it at grooming time. Here is a picture of Missy after getting her morning salmon oil before I brush her.

Kimberly, if you see this picture of Missy....her tail curls up good when she has her salmon oil...so I took a picture of her.

Ryan, for the static I use Vellus Static Stabilizer works good.
