The Salmon Oil seems to be causing my boys to have the runs, is this a good product? Is it that they are just getting used to it like a switch in food? Or does it just not work with them? Thanks in advance.

How much are you giving them? How often? How long have they been getting it? Did you make any other dietary changes?

They were getting one pump per meal, at the time they were being fed three times a day, and we did this for a week. Now they are fed twice a day, no oil.

My guys all get Grizzly Salmon oil. They get 3 pumps in one of their meals each day. I have never had a problem with diarrhea and their coats look so much better than they did. I have heard that too much oil can cause diarrhea, and that working up gradually to the full daily allowance may be better tolerated.

My 1 yr old GSD (71 lbs) started getting 1 pump of this same oil 1x/daily when he was about 10 weeks old. he gets 3 pumps now every morning (he gets fed 2x/daily). We've never had a problem with diarrhea, but I do know that too much oil will cause the runs.
