Default No more salmon oil here

Well, salmon oil works great to stimulate their appetites, but after 2 weeks, the dogs stink and the house stinks of old fish. So, time for baths, scented candles, and no more salmon oil for us.

Coconut oil is great, but it doesn't provide the omega fatty acids found in fish body oils. I don't give fish oils (too concentrated for my liking) so i feed oily fish once or twice a week instead. Sprats are the big favourite, but they like mackerel, whitebait, sardines, trout etc as well.

What Salmon oil were you feeding?

I get sardines at times or these (great for teeth and fish oil)

Believe it or not, but I find the fishy smell dies down a bit after awhile. And I feed whole sardines and salmon oil.

Coconut oil has it's place, but fish oils you can't beat, so long as youre not fish intolerant.

I might be the only one, but coconut oil hasn't been the god send for me (or the pups) as I guess it has been for everyone else.

I think I'll feed a sardine now and then. The fish oil is just too unpleasant. Besides, one of the supplements we use for skin and coat contains salmon oil that doesn't stink.

I feed mine fish too (sardines being a favourite - I buy tinned ones in spring water with no salt added) and they love dehydrated fish skin chews too (like the ones Huly posted). They also get a bit of salmon oil in one of the foods I feed (Natural Instinct pre made raw). I haven't had any fishy smell issues with those. They may have fishy breath right after eating, but I find it goes away soon. I also feed coconut oil, but I agree they both have different benefits.
