Subject:For itchy dogs.... bad skin stuff
Time:10:26 pm
Ena (Chinese Crested, 9 months) has had skin issues, since forever. Emma (Parson Russell Terrier, 5 years) has, too. A month ago, an online friend recommended a different supplement, for us. We went and got it, because... what the heck? Why not?

It's Nordic Naturals Omega 3-6-9 Junior. It's made for human children. The ingredients are:
Purified deep sea fish oil, (from anchovies and sardines), soft gel capsule (gelatin, water, glycerin, natural lemon oil), borage oil, natural lemon oil, d-alpha tocopherol, rosemary extract.

The girls love the taste. I also added a 3.4 billion human probiotic, split, about 2:1 (emma getting twice as much) between them. Emma gets 2 of the fish oil caps, and Ena gets 1.

Both girls are itching significantly less. Ena has had NO breakouts. She still has a couple of healing bumps, but literally.... the constant battle is gone. I don't know if it's the balance they've created, or the quality of the product, but it's WORKING for them. The company makes an omega 3 pet product, that doesn't have the borage oil in it. I may try it, in the future, but I doubt it. The girls are doing SO WELL!

I don't know a lot about kitties (I can groom one, but I've never fed one, LOL), but it does have lemon oil in it. I'm not sure if a kitty would eat that, or if it would be good for a kitty. Fine for the dogs, though, and mine happen to like fruit.

Do your pups have food or seasonal allergies? Mine do, and I've been looking for a supplement for them. I see this was posted in November, are they still showing signs of improvement? Thanks and take care.

Yes:) Food and seasonal. I used it for months and loved it. Now, I'm using nothing, because I've put the older dog on ZD Ultra, and we're doing a food trial.

Thanks for getting back to me. Glad to hear your pups are doing well. I think I'll give this a try. Take care.

What's ZD Ultra, new allergy med? Also, how much do your dogs weigh? You said Ena got one pill and Emma got two. Phoebe is 10lbs and Emma is 80, so I was thinking about getting the adult formula since Em is so large. the childrens is 500mg/pill and the adult is 1000mg/pill. Thanks!

Ena is 12 lbs, and Emma is 20. ZD Ultra is a prescription dog food (by Hills). It's used for food trials, because it is not food. It's molecularly.... altered so the body doesn't recognize it as an allergen.
