These things are very difficult to fathom sometimes and so I can quite understand your dilemma.
If we think about it logically, if the vet has said supplement with oils, then he is discounting the common triggers such as food allergies/skin parasites/bacterial infections. By default he therefore may think the most likely cause is dietary insufficiency.
The diet you are feeding (and I know Nutriment products because we use them ourselves) is not particularly likely to be deficient in oils and is not likely to have a bad Omega 6/Omega 3 ratio. A bad Omega 6/Omega 3 ratio simply explained means that there is too much Omega 6 in the diet or too little Omega 3. A "bad" ratio of these oils can cause skin conditions.
Feeding some extra oil of one kind or another is an easy and inexpensive way to either improve the condition or show that the condition is in fact nothing to do with a dietary deficit. Avoid any oils that are high in Omega 6 and these include corn, sunflower and soybean oil. The only disadvantage to feeding additional liquid salmon oil is not the oil itself but the trace contaminants in it. Cold pressed oils, though sounding beneficially natural do contain more trace metals and dioxins (both bad things) than refined fish oil!
If I were you and I was trying to see if my dog would benefit from more oil in the diet I would first try OLIVE OIL. This is low in Omega 6 and high in Omega 9. It is a well-
If it isn't then try Salmon oil. Either liquid or granule, you won't do anything dangerous as long as you stick to the recommended amounts. Trimega granules do not contain any heavy metals or dioxins as they are not made from pressed salmon oil.
Hope this helps and I would love to hear how you get on. We never stop learning.
I write further to your very helpful email below following my enquiry regarding my Flatcoated retriever's dry skin condition.
On your recommendation I added half a teaspoon of olive oil to her food twice a day and well I can't believe it but it has done the trick -
I'm going to add a few drops a day to her food as a maintenance measure.
Thank you so much for your help and advice.
Sometimes the easiest solution is the best. It's not always right to spend money needlessly on Supplements as this recent conversation with one of our customers shows.
Message: Hello, following a check up with our vet yesterday where I pointed out that my almost 9 yr old flatcoated retriever has developed dry flaky skin, my vet advised that maybe I would like to supplement her diet with Lintbells Yumega Dog Salmon Oil. I was wondering if your Trimega Omega 3 Granules would be a better option but one thought did occur to me -
Your advice would be gratefully received. Many thanks. Maria.
