I have read multiple threads here on the value of salmon oil. I feed Lady ZP which looks to have ingredients that promote a healthy skin and coats, as well as healthy joints. She has a soft coat to me. She does not seem to have dry skin or seem to be itchy (but this could change with the onset of winter and less humidity in the south). Do any of you with long coats use both ZP and wild salmon oil? I did hold a long coat recently at a dog show and although I feel Lady has a soft coat, this little dogs coat was amazing.

We don't really fit the criteria since we feed Fromm and Chloe is short haired. But we just recently started salmon oil. I didn't thunk Chloe's coat could get much shinier, but it really has! Also Chloe loves eating it.

I use grissly wild salmon oil and feed ZP. Mylo used to scratch a lot but has stopped now. I started ZP and salmon oil at the same time so I'm not sure which it was though. But he does love his salmon oil!

Hi Guys, I also want to use the grizzly salmon oil as my chihuahuas are both short coats and are always itching and scratching. I;ve tried a medicated flea shampoo but doesn't really seem to have fixed the problem.

I also want to use Nupro which is a supplement to stop the shedding of their hair. But i can't seem to find anywhere online that sells this to Australia. I tried Amazon and they have it but don't ship to Australia.. does anybody know of where i can buy this online?
The dog hair is driving me crazy at the moment.

I think it's perfectly fine to use fish oil while feeding Ziwipeak. Even though ZP has omega 3s, the food IS still processed and processing destroys the fragile oil. Plus, once you open the bag, the oils can continue to degrade. Meaning those oils included aren't nearly as high.

I used to feed ZP, and while Onyx did really good on it, she still had dry skin constantly. The addition of a human fish oil pill twice a week really helped. She is now back on 100% raw and no longer has any skin issues.

Both of my chis are long coat. They eat ZiwiPeak and various frozen raw foods. I give them both Nupro Silver and fish oil 3x per week. Their coats are super shiny!

Thanks. I just ordered some of the Grizzley wild Salmon oil. Do you give it once a day?

I give one squirt every other day. The other day I add some power from cranberry pills. A few times a week I let her lick some coconut oil off my finger.
