zesty paws salmon oilThis salmon oil really seems to work. Buddy, our ten year old beagle, was always scratching and biting himself. His skin was red and irritated. It was a vicious cycle. The fish oil capsules bought from the grocery store did nothing to help his condition. Then one day our next door neighbor mentioned that she fed Zesty Paws Pure Wild Alaskan Salmon Oil to her Labradors to help with their skin problems.

So we tried it. I was a little skeptical about the pump, but it’s easy and convenient to use. No mess. Following the instructions on the bottle, just three squirts on each dog’s food once a day. They love it!

Maybe it’s only a coincidence, but Buddy’s itching has dramatically decreased. And Lily, our twelve year old Labrador-Dachshund mix, no longer has dandruff. Her coat is now shiny and silky. I really love this product. The 8 ounce bottle lasts about four weeks. We keep it in the refrigerator as it says in the instructions. Of course it does smell pretty fishy (that’s probably why the dogs love it so much) if you get it close to your nose, but the smell doesn’t permeate the air. I think we will buy the 16 ounce bottle next time and save a little money.

The omega-3 fatty acids in Salmon Oil are thought to support heart and joint health as well as the immune system. Salmon Oil is supposedly responsible for many cardiovascular benefits including reduction of inflammation. I’m wondering if we should take it, too! Somehow, I don’t think we’d enjoy it as much as Buddy and Lily do, though.

Have you tried this product for your dog or cat? We would love to hear how it works for you. Let us know!
