skin condition. The vet recommended some omega-3s to be added to her diet. I got the soft chews.


I also got Dasuquin for her joints.


Only question is would it be okay if I could give her the Dasuquin along with one of the dosage of omega-3s she gets? She weigh 80 pounds so she gets two Omega-3 soft chews twice a day.

I love Drs. Foster and Smith - great company! Yes you can give the Dasuquin and the Omega- 3s together. Curious though, how much DHA and EPA is actually in the dosage of chews? You want at least 20mg/lb of EPA so 1600 mg EPA/day (not total omega or EFA, but EPA), at least. But with a skin condition you might want to add even more.

Yes, I've been happy with the products and prices of things like doggie bed and leash and a few other things.

We use different products for omega 3 - Nordic Naturals (because I want to support a local business).

I really like the company. Their dog beds are outstanding. Their customer service is pretty good too- I bet if you wrote them you could get a quick response to your question.

I love Drs. Foster & Smith! From my experience, their items are good quality & relatively inexpensive. Everything I've ordered from them in the past is always shipped & delivered quickly. I also like the free shipping on orders $49+. I can get a bag of dog food and add on some treats (Veda loves the dried sweet potato snacks) and have it delivered for free.

They sell the same products, from the same manufacturer that you buy from the vet. Very reputable company.

I have been dealing with them for over 14 years. They are a top notch company. I buy my cosiquin off them all the time. They have great sales on it and other stuff with free shipping over 49.00.
