518994 tn?1212245647 There are various vitamin-mineral supplements available that contain this or you could just add a little (~1/2 teaspoon) extra virgin olive oil to your dogs meals. Olive oil is a great source of Omega-3 Fatty acids. The omega-3's are the same for people and pets. If you give too much the result would be a bit of gas and/or loose stool.

Avatar f tn What is true is that the Omega 3 in flax seed oil is different from that in fish oil, and flax seed oil contains more than just omega 3 oils, whereas most fish oil is artificially purified to eliminate many other beneficial oils that would also be a fish. Since you can get cold processed organically grown flax, whereas fish are contaminated pretty much everywhere now, and for vegetarians, flax is a good source of oil, but for a diabetic, fish oil probably would be a good choice.
Avatar n tn I have heard many different things about glucosamine for dogs . That is is okay for your dogs, and also that it isn't. There can be many benefits to providing supplements for your dog. It can help them remain healthy and with that even happier. No one likes to deal with a grumpy dog. Can you tell me where I could find more information about glucosamine for dogs though?

412194 tn?1233625132 The body cannot manufacture them from other nutrients. Throughout human history, omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids have been ingested in near perfect proportion. For millions of years, the equal ingestion of these two have created a delicate check and balance system within the body that is in control of, literally thousands of metabolic functions.
793908 tn?1294708709 They are small dogs, but you may try adding some Omega 3 or even some coconut oil to their diets. Good luck and please keep us posted on the progress of these little ones.
1645208 tn?1301075777 Yes, you can give fish oil caps. Salmon oil caps at Costco. Omega 3 caps daily. Canned sardines packed in oil. Actually, quite a few people are starting to add coconut oil with good results. This is a good link to read up on
Avatar n tn I suggest using a combination of Omega 3 Fatty Acids such as Flax Seed Oil, Fish Oil, and Grape seed extract. The benefit of Omega 3 Fatty acids is achieved at a total of 1000mg twice daily (of all Omega 3 Fatty acid sources) for a 80 pound dog.
Avatar n tn 1 Omega 3:6. A good fish oil supplement such as Carlson's brand has the proper ratio. Try to get a fish oil supplement that says there is no Mercury in the preperation. If the label does not have this information the company usually has a customer service number or email address where you can ask. Both your dogs need 1000 mg EPA/DHA/Marine Lipids or Fish Oil Supplements twice daily.
Avatar n tn we buy it in amber colored bottles to keep it as fresh as we can, and i would think that the omega in the kibble would be diluted down..hope this makes sense..but i am confused on omega 3 and 6 ratios and if i need to give it to keep their skin and coat nice..right now they look great..
Avatar n tn My sister works at this place that does a lot of dog health products, and she was telling me that a lot of dogs have problems with allergies and then they have problems with their skin because of it - it's just how their bodies react - so the no wheat, gluten or soy diets are probably a really good idea. Also Omega 3 fish oil. She told me about this small fish oil pill for small dogs and puppies called Packenzie.
2186126 tn?1384961026 Even though I almost go to the vet at the drop of a hat (I had very good pet insurance for Frida), for some odd reason we missed doing a blood test at the 3-month interval, which is suggested for geriatric (vs.

Avatar m tn The vet told me to give her fish oil, omega 3, or make her treats with it. I was wondering if the liquid fish oil you buy for dogs is ok to bake with. I'd like to make some treats, but I don't want to risk making my dog sick but cooking the oil. I also don't know if cooking it will defeat the purpose...if it was reduce the effectiveness of the omega 3s. Has anyone tried this before?
61536 tn?1340701763 While not immediately antiarrhythmic in a dietary form, in the case of ischemia, severe exertion, or major sympathetic adrenergic discharge, phospholipases and lipases quickly liberate stored fatty acids, especially omega 3 PUFAs, and these in their free form can prevent arrhythmias. If fish oil is ingested on a regular basis, the PUFAs will be present in the stored forms to be available when needed." "...
Avatar f tn make 1/3 of the diet lean protein like chicken, turkey, beef, fish or eggs, the second third is long acting carbohydrates such as rice, potatoes, pasta or oatmeal and the final 1/3 is fresh vegetables including broccoli, green beans, peas and carrots.
612551 tn?1450025775 Thanks for the warning, but while I have read Tea Tree Oil is toxic for cats I had not seen any warning about dogs. I believe humans can use Tea Tree Oil for treatment of some mouth/gum problems...don't take this as a recommendation but Tea Tree Oil is sold in health food stores for human use. My wife had used it on her hair for something, I don't recall what.
1943347 tn?1324328791 I fed Natural Balance Fish and Sweet Potato food (you don't want to feed carbs as sugar feeds the cancer). I supplemented with 2000-3000 iu of Omega 3/Fish Oil daily. Our Grey was also on BP meds for some kidney issues. I opted not to do Prednisone either as I didn't want to deal with the side effects and didn't want the dog to have to deal with them either. He lived just short of 6 months from diagnosis. I hope you get the same .
1741471 tn?1407162630 Omega 3s and Vitamins key for a better brain health According to Fernando Gómez-Pinilla, PhD, a neurobiologist at UCLA who studies the impact of certain foods on the brain, the key is to avoid fried foods and add more omega 3 fatty acids to your diet. Omega 3s are essential for normal brain functioning because they are our primary source of DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), the most abundant omega 3 fatty acid found in the cell membranes of brain cells.
Avatar f tn I heard heard of ground up eggshells. I also thought I would ask about his blood pressure and adding omega 3 salmon oil to his food as well as any other vitamins.
Avatar n tn I believe there are low sodium dog foods out there for dogs with heart problems. Giving Omega 3 may help some. Is your Vet checking the potassium levels in the blood and the kidney function? Those should be monitored, esp if the dog in on a diuretic. I'm not sure why he has her on an antibiotic unless he is afraid of pneumonia? Unfortunately, yes, the coughing will probably get worse as fluid continues to build up but, hopefully, you have some good time left with her. Is she in pain?
Avatar n tn One year of complete remission is excellent, however, and the rescue protocols for lymphoma often do lead to another remission. I hope that this is the case for your boy. Regarding nutritional support for dogs with cancer. There are several studies, albeit relatively small, regarding the efficacy of nutritional support for dogs with cancer. In your case, the news is very good, as most of these have been in dogs with lymphoma.
9214378 tn?1408885184 That's a great question, but the answer is going to be a bit complicated, so bare with me. Eggs are normally good for dogs in small quantities. But, they contain good omega-3 fatty acid AND the bad-for-dogs-in-kidney-failure omega-6 fatty acid. The best answer with eggs I have found is to be cautious, because what happened to eggs through mass production and processing over the last 100 years has changed their value completely.
1916673 tn?1420236870 I just wanted to add a brief bit of info as you mentioned starting giving Omega-3 to Chance. The best and cheapest Omega-3 is actually pure salmon oil (you only need give about half a teaspoon, so a standard bottle of about a litre lasts forever. The pills are fine, but usually a bit expensive, and omega-3 must be given according to dog size and weight as overdose can actually occur.
