I have a Weimaraner (about 75-80 lbs). I started giving my Boy fish oil... about 2 weeks now. I'm not noticing any dramatic positive changes yet. Probably too soon. Maybe his coat feels a little softer, but that might just be a placebo effect on me. I put him on it hoping for an overall health boost, not necessarily for the coat, but wouldn't mind a softer coat.
I know some people give fish and coconut oils together and I've been thinking about adding that as well for the additional benefits that coconut oil may bring. I know I should only buy the extra virgin organic kind.
But through reading other posts, the question of over feeding "fat" from those oils seem to be a concern, especially if already feeding a high quality food. So, that's my question and concern before buying any coconut oil. I certainly don't want my good intentions turn into messing up his health.
My Boy is eating Canidae dry and I started mixing it with Canidae canned (3 cups of dry w/ 1/2 canned total per day divided into two meals). He's getting 1.5 teaspoons of fish oil now, the suggested dosage. So... I don't know if adding coconut oil would be good or bad.
I really appreciate any suggestions or recommendations or sharing your experience. How do I figure out what amount (of any supplement) is appropriate when combining? Thank you so much in advance.
p.s. What brand of coconut oil do you buy?
