Exclamation Do you feed fish oil? Or any oil? Some scary facts.

https://omega3innovations.com/blog/r...esearch-shows/

This appears to be also an add for their fish oil so I wouldn't get automatically swayed toward that. But I thought that it's vitally important, more so that I ever knew to be very careful of oils of all kinds going bad. It's worse than meets the eye. I think about my home made dog food that I just made and I put in some wheat germ. I think it might have been turning. But I'm not sure. It's not that bad smelling and I wonder if that's just how it smells and it's not rancid. But I have had it a while and didn't put it in the fridge. Grrr. Now I'm all freaking out. But I put very little...just a sprinkle so maybe it's okay. But still...geeze louise. Next batch I'll be more careful. This batch will only last about 4-5 days.

Here's something else quite informative in case you want it.

This is a snippet but the whole article is good.

Quote:
Some manufacturers fortify their supplements with natural forms of vitamin E known as tocopherols to help prevent oxidation; check labels for gamma and delta tocopherols in addition to alpha tocoperhol.

Also make sure you check for Xylitol! I found it in fish oil brands in the health food store. I was so shocked!

Thatís scary if it was marked safe for pets. Itís so important to read labels. Good thing you noticed and posted it here.

This is what I've used for a few years. https://www.amazon.com/Iceland-Pure-.../B005F5DKMUThe problem is my dogs are so small it takes a long time to go through. Every time you pump that thing, a little air gets in it. I wonder if one could freeze half of it or if that ruins any of the properties. Otherwise, I might just feed more fish. Of course, that article says fish aren't always exempt from this either. But I've never bought fish that smelled rancid. Have you?

I've tried several times to get Molly to eat fish oil on her food, but she just won't! I don't get it either, cuz she'll eat canned sardines (in water) or tuna (in water) but oil on her raw food or kibble is a big no-no to her taste buds hahaha!


P.S. I found a supplement chewable that she would eat that included omega 3s called 'Prosense Skin and Coat Solutions' on Amazon- very, very, reasonably priced and deemed an 'Amazon Choice' Has good reviews too! Molly usually will not eat things like this but I tried anyway and she actually likes them LOL!

No, I do not currently feed fish oil or any other oil. However, when I went to a lecture on caring for senior dogs, the vet highly recommended all dogs be put on an omega 3 fish oil supplement.

Well...I agree that it is a very good idea and I've fed fish oil for a very long time. Lately though I've been reading more. (a dangerous activity) It's very worrisome how it can go rancid exceedingly easily and then it becomes a free radical. So, I'm trying to feed oily fish more often (hopefully, the fish I buy isn't rancid...doesn't smell like it) while I think this over. lol. I am just not so sure. Mackerel, (cooked) salmon, sardines...all these things are good and I'm trying to include it in their diet on lots of days. Actually, I've switched from raw and am feeding some of that in the form of canned with bones. I just don't quite know what to do about this fish oil supplement going rancid so darn quickly.

Have never supplimented anyone's food with fish oil, but certainly sold LOTS of it at the pet store where I worked. Boy, you never want to smell a bottle of it when it goes rancid....you will never get that smell out of your nose.

I think if I were to use fish oil I would talk to the manufacturer and see if refrigerating or freezing it would change it in any way.

I refrigerate all my oils that I use for cooking, except for my olive oil....it solidifies when refrigerated, and I use it pretty quickly any way.

I also freeze any nuts that I keep for baking...rancid nuts are really awful. I vacuum seal one cup portions of the nuts then pop them in the freezer. Nuts are too expensive these days, to risk having them go bad. Gosh I hate rancid nuts or rancid oil.

I did a lot of research on fish oils, how they are processed, from what waters, etc for my own consumption several years ago. I ended up choosing Nordic Naturals. Then when I went to give Omega 3 oils to my Spoo I went with the same company.

My dog licks it right up... I just pour his dose in the bowl he will have his dinner in. I did try a different cheaper brand and he refused to touch it. I get the Nordic Naturals Omega 3 Pet variety in a small bottle. It comes in dark blue glass and has tocopherols for preservation.

About 6 months ago my vet also began to sell the same brand.
