You can add a small bit of oil to her food. Olive oil, flax seed oil, grape seed oil, even cod liver oil. Not too much - you don't want her to grease things through too much, lol!

I gave Twinkle flaxseed oil when she was on her previous dry food...and she had wonderful fur...u can probably give her abt 1/4 teaspoon to start with...n don't expect her coat to turn beautiful overnight...just monitor for a few days to a week...n keep us updated of her condition ya!

i would be extremely careful with adding cod liver oil to the food of any dog who is eating a commercial (e.g. not home prepared) food. it is very high in vitamins A and D and you can easily overdose and do serious damage. especially in a puppy it's a problem since both vitamins can seriously affect bone development and growth.

fish body oil is another thing, and one of the best oils you can give - even better than flax oil, since the fish oil doesn't need to be converted by the dog's body to be utilized.

buy a product marketed for humans (fish oil or salmon oil capsules), since they have to meet much stricter standards and are regulated, while pet supplements are not. give one 1000mg capsule per 15-20 lbs of body weight.

Excellent point on the vitamins in the cod liver oil - thanks for the check, Mordy!

I just bought the fish oil capsuls. How much should I give her if she only weights 4 pounds?
Also, the vet said that she might be allergic to innova puppy. I seriously doubt it because she has improved on it. The dry itchy skin she has had since I got her.
How do I give her the fish oil? in her food?
You guys have been so helpful. Thanks!

Of course the vet said she might be allergic to it . . . maybe he can sell you some Science DIEt/Hills special allergy formula garbage . . . You were too smart for that - good for you!

You can just drizzle the oil on her food and she should gobble it right down.
