qbchottu Fish oil has different properties and benefits - same with coconut oil. Feed both for best results.

CocoTherapy - Amazing Coconut Oil - What's the difference between Fish Oils and Virgin Coconut Oil?

Work up the dose slowly so not to cause pancreatitis from sudden increase in fats

Pax8 I meant coconut as an alternative to fish.

eddie1976E Fish oil and coconut? I always thought it was one or the other?

Pax8 You could also try coconut oil. I give mine a tablespoon of cold-pressed coconut oil every couple of days and his coat and skin are amazing. Softer than I've ever seen it on anything else.

qbchottu Yes you can use human fish oil pills. Give a couple with food per day. Also add unrefined coconut oil to his diet. It will help a lot.

Add probiotics - since he is on antibiotics, you need to repopulate his gut with beneficial bacteria. Benebac gel or powder is excellent.

Fish oil???

My boy is 10 months, always had a thing with dry flaky skin. Visited the vet and got rid of it for the most part (he prescribed cephalexin) but still has a few patches on his neck. Been reading up on benefits of fish oil. Was wondering if I can give my boy fish oil for humans? How much should I give him? And how often?
