Does anybody add oil on dry dog food? If so which ones are the best: Salmon Oil Flaxeed Oil Canola Oil Sunflower Oil I feed dry dog food (Innova) and wondering if the Fat Soluble vitamins are absorbed. Thanks for the replies in advance.

I use rice bran oil (same stuff our horses get). I guess it's about a tablespoon mixed in with the food. The coats are beautiful and it helps keep some weight on my young dog(who burns it off like crazy).

My showline had a horrible coat and was too far on the skinny side when she got here. I don't think she was fed good quality food. I put her on Nutro Naturals and gave her a gel cap of flax and fish oil daily for about 2 months until I noticed a huge difference in her coat. Before, her neck had many course and broken guard hairs from her fur saver. I now feed her 1 of each on occasion when it comes to mind. Still her coat is nice. I have tried oils on dry food and it was refused. I sneak the gel pills into a piec of hot dog, cheese or a pill pocket treat and they think they are getting treats instead of something yucky.

4pack, I'm glad I'm not the only one who sees the damage that theses so called "fursavers" can do to a dogs coat. When Zambi was young in her early teenage years, before slipping on a fursaver, she had a very nice thick neck coat before I decided to leave the fursaver around her neck. I look at her now and wished that I never even bought a fursaver for her.

My dogs still have their collars on. They only come off to brush or bathe. If I notice a hair issue there, thats when I start giving some oil and it goes away. It's kind of a guage thing for me. I have great food now and don't really have to suppliment. My dogs don't go anywehere without collars with identification on them.
