Our dog Dakota has always had sensitive skin. We have taken him to the vet for this. Sometimes they will give him an allergy shot, but mostly our vet just suggests keeping his skin lubricated. We have tried the hot spot sprays. They work for a few hours, but he doesn't like the smell or us spraying him with it. Finally about four years ago, we decided to try adding a supplement to his food. We read that salmon oil has many attributes that help keeps a dog healthy. Along with keeping a dog's coat shiny, it's also good for soothing dry itchy skin.
We have tried a few brands of salmon oil, but the one we like best is distributed by Barker Labs and made in Norway. Barker Labs is a no frills operation based in Tomball, Texas that just sells a good product. We found them on Amazon, read all the reviews, and decided to give it a try.
The Unscented Salmon Oil is a pure human grade salmon oil rich in omega 3 and 6 fatty acids that comes from Norwegian salmon. It's packaged in a sealed aluminum can which helps keep out air and light. Air and light have been known to reduce the quality of salmon oil over a period of time.
The Barker Labs brand of salmon oil has been the best that we've tried. We like that it is unscented, so it doesn't add an additional smell to their food. Dakota itches less and his coat is shiny. In addition to this, salmon has other attributes like lubricating joints, promoting a healthy heart, and improving eye and brain function. We strive to keep our dogs healthy. Adding a quality salmon oil to their diet has really helped.
