When you're feeding fish oil, particularly if you want to benefit from its anti-inflammatory properties, what you really need to know is how much EPA (Eicosapentaenoic Acid) is in a serving. On the back, under the list of nutritional facts, it should say how much EPA 1 serving contains (and make sure you check the top to see what they're considering 1 serving). You want to feed Gemma 20mg of EPA per 1 lb of body weight. So if Gemma is 4 lbs, she should have 80mg of EPA daily. If a listed serving contains more, you can reduce it. If it's less, you'll want to up it.
It's pretty hard to overdose on fish oil, she can get more EPA than she technically needs and be fine. If she's getting less, you may not see the results you want.
ETA: Whups! You use metric measurements over there! For 1 kg, you'll want to give her 44mg of EPA. If Gemma's 1.2 kg you'll want to give her 53mg EPA a day.
