Woof! Do you smell that? What the heck is that? Oh my, smells like fish; something is fishy around here. As if that wasn’t enough, poor Carla Mae is fighting off allergies; she gets all itchy and does this sound, “achoo”. Seriously folks, where in the kibble is this smell coming from? <sniff, sniff, sniff> Found it! Mom is giving us fish oil! Wait! That means, it is me that smells like a fish. Come on over and take a sniff; do I smell like a fish? No! Whew; I thought I was growing fins for a second. BOL
Why does Mom gives us fish oil? Did you know that fish oil is excellent to give your fur babies (dogs and cats)? It is true! Woof! See, fish oil was first to given to us pets that had allergies; however, now Doctors across the World have learned that it is also good for kidney disease to arthritis to heart disease to certain cancers. Grrrr, I really dislike that bad dude cancer…Grrrr Back off cancer, I am Mr MaGoo the Protector and I bite back…Grrr
Sorry about that folks, I had to let that nasty dude know that I am not afraid of him. Now, where was I? Oh yes, smelling like a fish, BOL Fish oil is very effective for us with allergic skin disease. See, it provides anti-inflammatory effects, which help relieve itching and scratching and allergy related skin conditions.
Arf! Fish oil does a whole lot more than just help with allergies; here are other health benefits for us pets:
- Autoimmune/skin allergies
- Inflammatory disorders such as colitis, bowel disease, ulcers and rheumatoid arthritis
- Enhances dull, unhealthy coats
- Yeast infections affecting ears, skin and genitals
- Heart arrhythmias and hypertension
- Elevated triglycerides
- Kidney damage
- Benefits fetal brain development of puppies
- Reduces growth of cancer cells
- Joint and vision problems
I know that Mom was giving my beloved sister Buffy fish oil to help her heart, cancer and Cushing’s disease. Mom insists that is what helped Buffy live past predictions and not allowing her cancer to spread; Mom did not have the bad dude removed, she fought back with other ways. I try to bark at Mom that Buffy had a lot of wuv and this is why. Woof! I think we are both right, don’t ya think? I miss my sister..woof! Mom keeps giving it to Carla and I to avoid any future bad dudes; and, to help Carla with her allergies.
How much should your parents give you? Grrr8 question; Mom gives us a tablet at every meal. She says it to prevent dog allergies and dog skin problems, as well as heart and degenerative disorders, if you are a medium sized dog one fish oil supplement every day and half of one to smaller dogs. Mom simply cuts off the end of a fish soft gel capsule and squeeze the oil onto our food. Remember though, have your parents ask your veterinarian for correct dosage. Each one of us is different and require different amounts.
Bark at your parents; for them to give it you, and it is Grr8 for them too. Do your parents give you fish oil? How do you feel? How do look? Like me? I am too sexy…BOL
Paw up, I would wuv to hear from you.
