Is fish oil beneficial ?

First I want to say I am a big advocate of fish oil, it reduces inflammation, it is good for the skin and coat, and helps heart disease. There are two essential fatty acids, omega 6 and omega 3. Omega 6 fatty acids are found in foods such as chicken, pork and beef. They are also found in plant sources such as olive and safflower oil. Omega 6 fatty acids are easily available from your dogs food and there is no need to supplement. The other essential fatty acid is omega 3. Omega 3 fatty acid is less common, and available in fish oil, flax seed and some algaeā€™s. Since omega 3 is less common it is important to supplement your bulldogs diet. Always get the fish oil capsules, since bottled oils are easily destroyed by heat, light and oxygen. The recommended dose of fish oil is one capsule per 10 to 20 #, but that dose tends to make my dogs stools loose ! So I normally give my adult dogs one capsule once a day. If you have problems giving a capsule to your dog you can poke a hole and squirt the oil on your dogs food.
