Fish Oil - help please?

Post by petab on Thu Feb 02 2017, 10:46

Hi All

Have been advised by vet to give fish oil to my staffy for joints. Am a bit concerned about cod liver oil as it is fatty and he's had previous issues with fatty foods.

Suggestions, experiences, what does everyone else use please?

Green lipped mussels / sardines / pilchards ???

All views welcomed.

Thanks

I started using YuMove supplement for my 9yr old (not staffie, lab x) and was pretty sceptical but it's made a noticeable difference. It's green lipped mussel (and you can smell it), glucosamine + other stuff.

Thanks to those who replied. Think I'm going to try the sardines, tuna route. How much and how often do you give these?
