I started my two on fish oil because the female I acquired last December began itching as soon as I got her almost. She came from living in a kennel into our house with forced air heating, dry even though we run a humidifier. I put them both on fish oil capsules, and she does itch less, but his coat is absolutely beautiful, the best I've seen him in the year I've had him. Yes, he shed much earlier than I would have thought, and I am wondering whether he will shed again when Spring is actually here.

Question--I read on this forum a while back that if you are giving fish oil, they should also have vitamin C. Can anyone explain why? Thanks!
