Any Advice On BEST Alaskan Salmon Oil?

HELP!!!!!
I want to start giving my 5 mo. old pup this wonderful product. I was going to buy the Timberwolf Organics Brand until I read something negative about the company's ingredients in their foods.

Does anyone out there have the BEST brand I can get? Please help.

Re: Any Advice On BEST Alaskan Salmon Oil?

I'm not sure if this is the best, but we get human-grade Alaskan salmon oil capsules by Carlson for Kaiser - they come in capsules that we pierce with a needle and squirt on his food. I know it's a little more work than getting the kind that comes in a squirt bottle, but we like it and there are no preservatives or extra ingredients, except for the ones used to make the capsule material, which he doesn't get anyway.

Here are two places that have it -

Re: Any Advice On BEST Alaskan Salmon Oil?

It seems like when I first started using it, a vet friend of mine suggested giving him one or two capsules squirted on his food, but I can't remember if there was a formula, or how she came up with that.

We just use one capsule and Kaiser is 2 1/2 years old and about 96 lbs. We could probably use two, but just haven't done it yet.

I tried the squirt bottle variety like Grizzly makes, but for his weight we'd have to use around 4 or 5 squirts. When I tried that with our other dog Ray (now at the Bridge) his food was just too oily and he wouldn't eat it!
