Can I Give My Dog Human Fish Oil
Generous amounts of fish oil and its plentiful DHA and EPA omega-3 fatty acids are useful for treating geriatric canine dementia, skin and intestinal problems, kidneys, heart, joints, and cancer. The positive effects on coat and skin have prompted large numbers of pet parents to supplement the diets of healthy dogs with fish oil. While the trend is positive for dog health, too much of a good thing may adversely affect your dog's gastrointestinal health.

Is fish oil harmful to dogs
Proper doses of fish oil are safe for dogs. Vets and pet nutritionists first used omega-3 fatty acids in the form of fish oil to treat canine allergies. Now they recommend it for a wide variety of conditions ranging from high cholesterol to arthritis and kidney disease. When added to your dog's diet, fish oil for canines produces anti-inflammatory effects and can help alleviate itching from atopic dermatitis, an allergy-related coat and skin condition.

What are the benefits of fish oil for dogs
Fish oil is likely one of the most powerful supplements you can add to your dog’s nutrition plan, despite the food your dog eats. DHA and EPA, the omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil, produce extensive benefits, but because they are fragile they are unlikely to survive being stored in bags of kibble. In fact, they may be rancid before being mixed in your dog's food. Whole fish and krill oil also provide DHA and EPA and may be absorbed easier, presenting similar benefits in smaller doses.
