Here are the 3 most common mistakes to know about giving salmon or fish oil to your pet.


Mistake #1

Not Starting With A Small Dose

Too much oil too soon could give your pet digestive discomfort and diarrhea. When starting out, we recommend starting with smaller doses, then moving up to the recommended amount.  Refer to the dosage guidelines on the packaging or consult your veterinarian for personalized recommendations.


Mistake #2

Not Giving The Right Amount

In addition to starting with smaller doses, it's essential to administer the correct dosage based on your pet's size, age, and health condition. Again, please refer to the dosage guidelines on the packaging or consult your veterinarian for personalized recommendations.


Mistake #3

Not Waiting Long Enough

Change doesn't happen overnight. We recommend you wait 2-3 weeks to see changes in your pet's skin and coat. As always, if you or your fur baby is not happy with our oil, we offer a 100% money-back happiness guarantee.

We couldn't stop at 3, so here are 5 more things to remember...


Reminder #1

Always Check The Oil

We admit, salmon and fish oil are inherently fishy, so you must always be conscious when giving it to your pet. Once the bottle is open, the oil can oxidize from exposure to air. So if you’ve had the oil a long time or receive an open bottle, make sure to smell it. If it seems extra fishy or rancid, please throw it away. We have a 100% happiness guarantee and would gladly send you a new bottle.


Reminder #2

Store Your Oil Properly

We recommend you put your bottle of salmon or fish oil in the refrigerator. When the oil gets exposed to air, it starts to oxidize. Storing your oil in the refrigerator can extend the life of the oil and slow down the oxidation process.


Reminder #3

Take Your Pet's Current Diet Into Consideration

Fish oil can be a valuable addition to your pet's diet, but be conscious of the calories from their normal food since salmon and fish oil will add extra calories. Also, avoid combining fish oil with high-fat treats. If not monitored, your pet’s diet could result in excess calories and could result in weight gain.


Reminder #4

Be Aware of Potential Allergies

While rare, some fur babies may have allergies or sensitivities to fish or specific components in salmon oil. If you notice any signs of an allergic reaction, such as itching, hives, or digestive upset, discontinue use and consult your veterinarian.


Reminder #5

Consult Your Veterinarian

All fur babies are unique, and what works for one may not work for another. Always consult your veterinarian for guidance on the best approach to incorporating salmon oil or any other supplements into your pet’s diet. They can provide tailored advice based on your pet's needs and health status.
