Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

PostSubject: Salmon Oil / Coconut oil supplements?   Sat Sep 01, 2012 11:39 am

My girls are on the TOTW High Prairie canine formula. I've read a lot here about people adding salmon oil or coconut oil to their dogs food for health and coat reasons. A while back I read a thread about these, but I can't find it now. What would be the best type and brand to buy? They are both 8 years old, and Zoe is a super wooly.

I supplement coconut oil because I consider it to be a healthier and safer option. For coconut oil, brand is not important, however it should be virgin, cold-pressed coconut oil. The coconut oil for people is fine and is usually cheaper than the stuff marketed for pets.

This is the coconut oil I use I give to my pups about 2-3 times a weeks.

I give mine this salmon oil about 3 times a week.

I also give mine a raw egg once a week.

I a package of sardines packed in either water or soy oil once a week.

Do you do this year round or just in the winter months? Would you recommend doing both or one or the other?

I've not used coconut oil on my dogs, but may eventually add it in. I know it's extremely good for people, so it has to be beneficial for dog's as well.

I do however also use the Grizzly Wild Alaskan Salmon Oil. My dog's love it!

This link tell's the benefit's of using Salmon Oil.

Addition to the oil, I too give raw egg's once or twice a week (shell and all).

I recently started adding NuPro Gold into their diet. It's a powder that you add water to and it makes a gravy and the dog's go crazy over it. I've had great success with this stuff.

I use it year round for my dogs. Some people use both, some use one or the other. Ultimately it is up to you and what you consider best for your pets. I prefer coconut oil exclusively for my pack personally.

Start off in very small amounts with coconut oil. Unfortunately, Ginger and Storm goes soft with coconut oil Sad
