Re: Wholistic Salmon Oil or Carlson Norw Salmon Ca
My dogs don't do well on salmon oil, BUT, when I did try them, this is what I looked for.
Notice that the Salmon Oil above has 4700mg per tsp, but only 1255 mg is omega-3 fatty acids? I always wonder what the rest is made up of?
the Salmon Capsules have 750mg of O-3, but you'd have to look at the total fat of the serving size to get the mg of total oil.
I always look for the highest proportion of O-3, if possible. I would look for the one that would have the least amount of mercury.
The Wholistic is higher in DHA, while the Carlson is higher in EPA. I believe that the DHA is more protective of the nerves, eyes, brain, and DHA has been talked about more than the EPA lately, but for the purpose you are giving it, you might want to do a search and see if you want more of the DHA or EPA.
And remember to increase slowly -- too much oil can be hard for some dogs to handle.
