    You must be presuming people feed from bowls. You can't squirt an oil onto a piece of meat and hand it to the dog. It will end up all over the floor and all over their coat. You could supplement fish oil tabs if they will take them like cookies.

    Fish is really the only thing I didn't feed when I fed raw, because A: I can't stand them, and B: I wasn't sure which ones were OK to feed. Even canned fish is beyond my ability to touch or fork into a bowl. BLECH. :ick

    I have used the Grizzly salmon oil in the past, but haven't given it in a while.

    agreed, feeding whole is a different kettle of fish so to speak, lol
    I will try whole mackerel again with Leo, didn't have much luck with Toffee... Good thing that I am able to feed ground up mackerel.
    Fish oil capsules also worked for fish finicky dogs!

    RE: the bowls. I'm not a raw feeder but have always wondered about the bowl thing. How exactly do you handle that (off-topic, I know, just curious and figured it would be a quick-ish answer)? All I picture is a tarp with meat on it and dogs going crazy to eat it. At least, that's what it would look like at my house, subbing in a few cats for a few dogs. :rolleyes2:

    What's the reality?

    crate or outside or on a towel, etc
    easy to wash
    also you'd be surprised how fast a chunk of muscle meat disapears without ever hitting the ground :D

    Not nearly as entertaining a mental picture as the tarp scenario, but does make more sense.:lol:

    This might sound like a silly question, but I'm not a seafood eater myself.

    Do shellfish - like prawns - have omega 3s? It's just that they like shellfish more than normal fish.
