Picky, Picky, Picky!!

I have never had a dog before that is a picky eater. My kids were not picky eaters. (Now, my grandsons are a different story) I used to have no empathy for picky eater parents because obviously the made their kids that way (just kidding!) Now I KNOW my dogs were born this way! For the last 2 days the have refused their fish oil that I squirt out of the capsules. Now I realize that I have changed brands! They look the same. My dh had gotten the other ones from Rite Aid. These are the Kirkland brand from Costco! They actually know the difference. arghhh.....

Oh thank heavens it is only fish oil Carole... I thought you were pulling out the fry pan again. You know, I changed brands and my boys wouldn't eat the new brand either...so back to grizzly salmon oil for us... but knock on wood... my boys are eating what I give them lately.

My vet only recently recommended fish oil when I asked about Logan's coat. Can you guys share what it does, how much you give, how you give it etc??
Thanks.

Hi Laurie

I've been using Grizzly Salmon Oil for about 3 weeks. I add about 1/2 squirt for Saydee to one of her meals, once a day. She likes the taste and her coat is getting silkier and silkier right before my eyes! I thought I'd just try it, and I was amazed at the difference it made.

Someone else on the forum mentioned she liked Kronch's Salmon Oil better than Grizzly. I'm not sure why. For now, I'll stick with what works!

I also use the Grizzly Salmon oil. I've been using it on Kubrick since day 1, so I can't really tell the difference between using it or not anymore though I know when my sister forgot to put it in his breakfast when we went to Europe, his coat did get worse - more brittle and dry. I use one whole pump and I add it to his breakfast kibble.

I was using the salmon oil but when I tried the fish oil it seemed just as good and a lot cheaper. Now I have to go back to Rite Aid and buy more.
Laurie, here's what I do. The fish oil comes in gold capsules. I poke a hole in the end or the capsule with a small nail and squirt it in a small saucer and they lick it up real fast. One capsule full each. I know Judith just gives hers a Costco capsule and her dog just eats it whole.
You can also squirt it on their food but my furkids are so obnoxious with their eating it could turn rancid by the time they get to it.
Missy, do you think I should try raw (raw) again? No more cooking, lol.

So I guess they figured ...something fishy is going on....

Chances are if your parents never had kids...you won't either...

I can't stand what's happened to Milo's coat. So tell me, what am I looking for and where? Does it only come in capsules?
