Salmon oil

Post by kholzer » 31 May 2022, 08:50

Hi everyone
Still dealing with a very picky eater who doesn’t want to eat his enzyme treated food
We have done pumpkin mixed in, salmon mixed in with dry food and that helps but it’s touch and go. Now it seems that topping with some salmon oil is helping.
Is salmon oil ok? I haven’t seen anything saying it’s not but figured I’d ask the people that have helped more than my vet has :)
Oli is allergic to all meats except fish - figures.

As long as there is no fat restriction for your pet salmon oil on top of the enzymed meal should be fine. Maybe start with half daily dose a few days and see if it is well tolerated.

I agree with Jill. If he tolerates it and seems to like it, there should be no problem. In fact, it seems lucky that this might work for him in light of the fact that he is not allergic to fish. Just keep an eye on the poops. Fingers crossed.

Does Oliver like the fish he eats? Can you mix a can of cheap tuna in oil, in with his kibble?
Tucker is a shepherd/lab mix; he has tested positive on the ScheBo test for EPI, as well as the fasting TLI. Results--- TLI 1.3, Folate 9.7, Cobalamin 666, Lipase 38. Currently taking Diane's Enzymes 4 teaspoons/day, Wonderlabs B12 one capsule per day, two capsules slippery elm/evening, 1 Proviable capsule/day, and Tylan 1/32 teaspoon/ morning (to hold SID at bay). Sport Dog Elite, herding dogs 4 cups/day, with a couple tablespoons of Fresh Pet mixed in, because everybody else gets some. No more poop eating, has gone from 60 to 80 pounds, and he is a happy member of the family, though a bit of a stinker, if you ask the other dogs. Tucker is my boyfriend, and my husband is OK with that.

I use nutritonal yeast with Montgomery. It smells and tastes like cheese and he's mad for it. He's earned himself the nicknames "Nooch Monster" and "Mucho Noocho," because of his love of the stuff. (He's eaten most of this bag to himself; I've only been able to snag a little for my broccoli!) It doesn't upset him either, so if your pup is very sensitive, it might be an option.
Montgomery was born 20 March 2012. He eats extra lean ground chicken completed with Alnutrin and freeze-dried chicken liver, with hard-cooked egg. He gets two size zero capsules of Enzyme Diane's enzymes at each of his six meals, and one size four capsule of Tylan three times a day. He's a strong, fearless little Spitfire with a real Merlin engine.

Thank you so much for the suggestion V! It is nice to have "Go to" food items our pups would love!
