For the past month, I've been giving my dog a new fish oil supplement. The product is made by Bonnie and Clyde Pet Goods and is called Wild Omega-3 Fish Oil Supplement for Dogs. This fish oil supplement comes in a 16 oz. bottle and has a pump and pouring cap to make administration of the oil easier. I prefer using the pump and I just add the proper dose to Shiner's food once a day.
Benefits of Giving Fish Oil to Your Dog
What are the benefits of giving a fish oil supplement to your dog? According to Bonnie and Clyde Pet Goods, fish oil supports many of your dog's body systems, including:
- Skin and coat health
- Healthy joints
- Neurolgical health and cognition
- Cardiovascular health
- Inflammatory or autoimmune diseases
- Renal disease and gastrointestinal health
With a 12 year old senior dog, I find it important to take extra measures in keeping her healthy. Many of the health problems listed above are experienced by elderly pets, so it's nice to know I can help to keep them at bay.
Giving a Fish Oil Supplement to Your Dog for Healthy Skin
One of the main reasons I wanted to try this particular supplement with Shiner was because she was having itchy skin. Right before starting her on the supplement, she came down with a hot spot and had a patches of fur loss on her back from chewing. She's been taking the Bonnie and Clyde Wild Omega-3 Fish Oil Supplement for almost four weeks now and you can see that her back looks nice. (The photo was taken after she had been taking the supplement for only 3 weeks.)
Since I don't have a before picture of her skin, I'll describe what it looked like. If you notice in the photo above, there are some slightly patchy areas. One of those areas was a big hot spot the size of a ping pong ball. It formed a scab which peeled away after a week, taking most of her fur with it.
I believe that the fish oil supplement she's been taking has helped tremendously with the regrowth of her fur. I also notice that her fur seems a little softer than before she was taking the supplement.
Her skin is still itchy at times, but she hasn't experienced any more hot spots and is less itchy than she was before we started the supplement. It's a bad time of year for her, but the fish oil is helping.
