I had the same question!
What about krill oil? We don't have regular fish oil, but we do have krill.

Thanks everyone. I will do the fish oil thing. But I have read that with fish oil you have to be careful of blood presure.

Krill oil is fine.

Fish oil and blood pressure? Would love to see links talking about that.

Fish oil thins the blood, so it is very useful in lowering blood pressure but on the other hand it can lead to the risk of hemmoraging & blood clotting problems if you over dose, thus why it is not reccomended if you're already on blood thinning medication or anything that thins the blood, including aspirin.

I work in a health food shop so thats what I know on the subject! but i'm sure there are plently of articles on the internet but I would imagine the same would apply to dogs as long as they're healthy and not on any such medications, It is a very beneficial supplement! would be very unlikely to overdose through diet to such an extent it would become dangerous unless on said medication.

Noah has very coarse hair but as of recent it has become incredibly soft, I'm not sure if it's his raw diet or the fact he now has coconut oil, though his shampoo and conditoner certaintly helps!

I would not worry about hypotension in a healthy normal dog. It would take large amounts of fish oil to cause a drop in blood pressure. Probably far more than the normal person would administer.

I think the benefits far outweigh the risks when it comes to omega 3 fatty acids and I would not hesitate to use and recommend them.

Axle has coarse hair compared to my other two. They are all on ZP and raw so I figure its a genetic thing (although Chloe is his half sibling and she has a soft, shiny, silky coat). He also sheds a lot more than the other two.
