Thanks! Yeah, I don't have a GSD yet, but I give fish oil to my parents' westie

Sunflower oil for dogs?

My mother started a conversation GSD owner at Wal-mart today who said she gave her dog Sunflower oil. She said her dog stopped having itchy and irritated skin all the time. Does anyone know anything about this? I'm curious, I've never heard of giving sunflower oil to dogs.
