Flaxseed vs fish oil

There's an ongoing debate over flaxseed vs fish oil. Mainly regarding the ability to convert the ALA. Anyone have any studies on this or like to give your input?

According to Dogs Naturally magazine it is best to give raw whole fish since fish oil is mostly oxidized already. Sometimes overthinking all this drives me crazy. I would think they benefit more from fish oil than from flax seed oil as it seems more natural. Just my gut feeling.
