I have read and been told that fish oil supplements are good for dogs. I see that they are sold in pet stores and online and cost a fortune for the pet supplements. A friend of mine said that the human fish oil supplements are the same idea and are a lot cheaper. She gives her Lab the Nature Made 1200 mg fish oil capsules. What is the diffrence between the pets and the humans fish oil supplements? An is fish oil supplements a good thing to have your dog on?

Yes, O3's are very good for dogs just like they are for people. heart disease, cancer, arthritis...good for all sorts of things.

I look for this in a fish oil

Every day when I take my vitamin pills my dog sits there wanting to share, so I give her one of my fish oil capsules. Love to see the expression on her face when she bites into it.

Well I feed human supplements (Sundown 1000mg Salmon oil). Koda "cousin" back home is fed a dog omega 3 supp. but he has to have his hid in canned food. So the IMO the ones for humans taste better??? Mac will need them hidden, but if I feed him Koda's it is like eating a treat. :)

After seeing him down some of the things he has, horse pills are nothing, but he atually prefers to bite them and taste the salmon oil inside (like a fishy fruit gushers treat!)
