Many human brands add in vitamin A and D. Don't use those. The can cause toxicosis.
For cardiac patients we recommend 40mg/kg EPA and 25mg/kg DHA. This is significantly higher than recommended for normal non cardiac use. So a 90lb dog would about 1600mg EPA and 950 DHA. (I did not use a calculator). 3000mg seems very excessive.
Nordic Naturals is an excellent brand.

I've also been researching fish oil. So far, I've read that there can be "too much? of a good thing on some levels in humans - causing vision problems etc.
Also, with anything "fish" condensed - Mercury is a concern I have. I'm having trouble finding anything really - that addresses either of these two issues with supplementing a dog's diet with fish oil. I can't start giving this on a regular basis until I know there are no long term "more harm than good effects".

I've read many times that the addition of fish oil in a dog's diet needs some vitamin E added as well....some fish oil capsules come that way I believe.

Ingredients should always be named.
This company does not state WHICH fish they used in their product.

help with fish oil capsules...
Hello i have a 3 year old german shepherd, called Alfie.
I've heard that you can give your dogs human grade fish oil.. What should/shouldn't you look for when buying them and would you say salmon oil is better? or just omega 3 fish oil?
I've been looking at these two and wondered if these would be ideal? and if so how many would you guys suggest?
