Just a thought . . . maybe mixing the EVO with the EVO RF for awhile.

Salmon or fish oil is best...you have to be careful with cod liver oil as it is different from regualr fish oils and can lead to toxic nutrient levels if you give too much.

Salmon oil yes, but I would not recommend the use of cod liver oil where a dog eats a commercial food, due to its content of vitamin A and D.

Olive oil isn't useless, it certainly does help (in most cases) but there are simply more benefits to giving a good quality fish oil, especially long-term.

I've got her to lose most of the weight, but we've been stuck at this weight for a while. . .
Has this dog ever had a complete thyroid panel done? If she is that active, you have reduced the feeding amount (and how much you feed sounds about right for her target weight) and she's still not losing weight, there could be a medical issue.

Wait so you switched to Reduced Fat EVO and removed the sardines from his diet at the same time? It's more than likely the loss of fish oils that's caused his coat quality to fall, not the food switch. I'd reccomend keeping up with the RF and just adding fish oils like everyone else has also suggested

I just put my beagle on just Innova and she gained a bit of weight, so now we're cutting her food by 25% and putting veggies in. Veggies can be very beneficial to dogs and make them feel full without adding in too much fat or protein.
Here's a great website to read through-
