I have found fish oil to help my dog out in many ways, but most especially with regard to her coat and skin. I use an Omega 3 fish oil. Here's a link: SALE - Nordic Naturals Omega-3 Pet 16 oz. - $39.95 - LuckyDogVitamin.com. Good luck and happy holidays.

have seen marked improvement with Sebolux once a week but I think much of the
improvement comes from adding salmon to the diet. I get the canned variety and put
it in the food (using Iams sensitive w fish base) and even get salmon at the store, cook
it and then they (and I) get it in the diet. Salmon oil or even flaxseed oil runs over $15
a small bottle so this seems a sensible alternative plus getting salmon O3 to me too!!

thanks, I posted a full reply on the board, forget to do a direct reply to you (I am a new
member learning the board) btw in my local health store a 16oz bottle of flaxseed oil
is $14, fish oil a bit more but must be refrigerated unlike flaxseed. Both O3 sources

I would definitely try a high quality omega 3 fish oil supplement. Here is a link to what we give our dog. SALE - Nordic Naturals Omega-3 Pet 8 oz. - $21.95 - LuckyDogVitamin.com. I just noticed they have free shipping too. We always get our order super fast from Lucky Dog too. Hope it helps. Keep us posted.

I've had Teddy's thyroid checked and all is well. Any comments would be appreciated. I can post photos too if that helps. I plan on taking him to the vet but sometimes it sends you in the wrong direction. Thanks in advance.
You may want to check for Ichthyosis.

Has anyone suggested your dog might have icthyosis? It is a skin disease not uncommon in Goldens. There is a DNA test for it.

OptiGen Ichthyosis (ICT-A) in GR performed by Antagene


There is no treatment for this, but at least you would know what you were dealing with and some with dogs suffering from this have had some improvement with things like fish oil, frequent brushing and bathing, etc.

Ha Ha-I see Swampcollie posted while I was still writing-great minds think alike!

Hi guys,

Quick question: My 8 week old puppy has got a bit of a flaky belly and the breeder has suggested I put some Johnsons baby oil on it (very little, just enough to cover it without blocking his glandes) as well as feed him 1ml of olive oil with his food. Today when I discussed that with the vet, she recommended non allergic (oil free) body cream (human).

I am a little confused as I am now not sure what to do. I have already bought some oatmeal dog shampoo but wondering if you guys recommend anything else to help.

Thanks in advance!!
