ones made from salmon the other is coconuts :p Okay okay, I"ll stop being a smartass.

I use grizzly salmon oil and started my pup on it at 9 weeks. She used to be an itchy girl and now her skin is much more moisturized and her coat is very soft.

Coconut oil has similar benefits but since I havent started feeding that one yet (I plan to) I would also like to hear some people chime in about its benefits!

Both are really good for the skin and fur. I believe that coconut oil is lacking some of the omegas whereas the fish oil has all that they need.

I use some of both though. I've found that my dogs no longer have smelly breath and their body odor is down A LOT since using coconut oil. I just have them eat a little. Also, after baths, I rub a lil coconut oil between my hands and rub it all over them before brushing. THey both have AMAZING coats and smell lovely. The older dog had horribly skin problems and body odor, both of which are now completely gone.

I've read that coconut oil in the nape of the neck with dissuade fleas, but Im not sure how well that holds true.

What are the differences between the two?

Which brand do you use?

Should I be supplementing with this for a puppy?
All this extra stuff is already in the food we picked for our pup so we don't have to worry about anything extra and makes it much easier.

When I use coconut oil I try to also use salmon oil, but if you use either/both I would add them in slowly starting with a small amount.
I also noticed an elimination of breath odor when using coconut oil.
