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.
