If you cut a slit in the side of the gel cap and let the dog lick it off, within a few days, they realize the good stuff is inside and they'll figure out how to crunch and eat it just like a treat. Same thing with vitamin E capsules. So then you can either drop one in their food or you can feed them by hand as a treat.ann freier said:if you use the gel caps, do you just throw 'em in w/food and the dogs eat 'em? that's what i'm concerned about--it's a PITA to shove them down the old gullet every day...
Spending a week in the frozen tundra (Boston, Manhattan, and other sections of the arctic), with my sisters, daughters, and grandbabies.ann freier said:and where have YOU been Connie?? well, but just busy, i hope!!
Thank You for that information Connie! I will be taking the cod liver oil out of their diet. Connie can you just come move in with me and teach me everything you know, so I can have fabulously healthy doggiesConnie Sutherland said:I haven't seen this whole thread yet, but wanted to note that enough Omega 3 EFAs to be beneficial can't be given in fish liver oil form without danger from vitamin A overdose, and, in many cases, toxins.
I skip fish liver oil because I know how much A my dogs get from other sources. If I wanted to give liver oil, I would give no more than the daily recommended amount for A. I would give all the rest of the Omega 3 EFAs in fish body (or "fish muscle") oil.
A is oil-soluble and accumulates in the liver. (The dog's, as well as the fish's.)
