If you happen to see this, what kind do you get? I was looking online and there are a few different ones. I believe I'm going to get the Omega Pure Alaska one as its the only cold pressed I believe. Just wondering which one you get?

Sorry, just seeing this now. The first time I bought 2 bottles of the Webber Naturals Wild ALASKAN Salmon Oil 1000mg 240 sfot gels

Then when I went back they didnt have that anymore so I bought Kirkland Signature 100% Wild Alaskan Salmon Oil 1000mg

Stupid question... Is fish oil the same as omega 3?? I feed my dogs omega 3 and they smell like fish after I give it like a treat too.

I don't know if dogs can eat garlic. Some say yes and some say no.

I looked at my omega 3 bottle when I got home and it's fish oil

1000 mgs of oil per 30 pounds of body weight for a healthy dog

1000 mgs of oil per 20 lbs of body weight for a dog recovering from an illness or surgery

1000 mgs of oil per 10 lbs of body weight for a dog with a chronic illness
