Default Dry skin! Fish oil pills vs. real fish?

Hello again,

Wade is suffering from a bit of dry skin (it's been chilly and he sleeps near a gas heater - it becomes VERY dry in here). I have been reading about fish oil and it seems safe to give him a fish oil pill once a day, but what about giving real fish? I was thinking sardines once a week might even be more affordable than fish oil pills (which are expensive).

Thoughts?

I will sometimes give Swizzle cooked fish. I would not feed raw fish as I would worry about parasites.

This is what I use. Dude is 100 pounds and he gets 4 squirts a day.

Thanks for the tip. Wow 100 lbs! Do you remember how old he was at 12 weeks? Wade is 19 lbs and we are anticipating he's going to be big, but the vet thinks 80 at the most.
