Salmon oil

Postby pitbullmamaliz » February 15th, 2009, 3:50 pm

I had to buy Inara the Ocean Fish flavor of Wellness Core today 'cause they didn't have the regular flavor. Normally she gets 1000mg of salmon oil per day - should I stop giving her that since there are already Omega 3's in the food?

Here's the nutrition info of the food:
Guaranteed Analysis
Crude Protein min. 34%
Crude Fat min. 14%

Moisture max. 10%

It doesn't look like it's all that much though... :|

Actually I have no idea, but I felt sorry for you because no-one posted an answer. :wink:

lol Thanks! I'm used to being ignored around here. :wink:

I'm figuring that as long as she doesn't get the shits it's not too much. So we'll see!

I remember hearing that supplements in food weren't substantial enough to replace supplementing on its own. :| :wink:

That's exactly correct! They put things like Omega 3 fatty acids and glucosamine/chondroiton in dog foods so that you will say "Oh look, it has these supplements, it must be a good food!" But the amounts are nowhere near enough to have any efficacy.

I feed lots of fish based food and continue the use of salmon oil.

Thanks, all! I figured it would be okay, but I don't normally feed fishy food so just wanted to double check. :)
