Now I'm confused. I want to add a dry skin supplement, but also want to stay within the confines of the household budget so I was considering something other than the omega-3 caps.
I've been reading at other sources and some say flax seed or flax seed oil does little or no good–something about oxygenation rendering the seed useless and the oil turning rancid in a short amount of time.
Eggs are out of the question as Tyler is allergic. Household oils such as olive oil and corn oil don't provide the nutrients/benefits I'm looking for (in my older dog) and also have the side effect of loose stools/diarrhea.
Is there anything on the market that addresses the dietary needs (hair, skin, joints, etc) of an older B. that the omega-3 does, but doesn't cost as much and doesn't have the controversy surrounding it about 'long term use' of omega-3? Just wondering.
If I go with the omega-3 caps, please advise what the dosage is, and in what frequency.
