Default Fish oil? What do you use?

Right now I'm using Grizzly Salmon oil but have been looking at rotating between that and maybe krill/anchovy/sardine oil... What do you use for your dogs?

I use Costco's "Best Pet Health" brand of wild Alaskan salmon oil and their "Carrington Farms" organic virgin pressed coconut oil.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but shouldn't Vitamin E be given WITH the other Omega oils to help their absorption, as opposed to, an alternative to them?

How much vit E? Some fish oil says it has vit E in it already

After trying to keep Grizzly salmon oil in the fridge and having the smell, and mess (pump action is cool but can be messy) we went with Costco's human salmon oil.

Not sure about Vit. E with it.
