Please Pass The Salmon #Chewy Influencer

With an almost 14 year old and four 12 year olds in the house, we have a lot of creaky, achy joints. Years ago we started everyone on fish oil and it's just become part of our daily routine. At least once a week everyone gets fish for dinner and I try to make it the good oily kind like sardines, mackeral or salmon.  My dogs also take fish oil capsules each morning just after breakfast. They often get a squirt of salmon oil on their breakfast, too. Whenever anyone seems stiff or shows a limp, Dr B's advice has been to increase their fish oil. At one time Morgan was taking eight capsules a day. Remember, she lived to 16.

This month Chewy offered us a chance to review NaturVet Salmon Oil Skin and Coat Gel Caps.
 These are nice small sized capsules, perfect for a smaller dog or as a starter for puppies. If anyone needs instructions on getting your dog to take fish oil caps, I'll share my technique.
The first time poke a hole in the capsule with a needle. Squeeze a little of the oil into the dogs mouth as you feed her the capsule. Do that for a couple of days. They'll quickly learn that if they bite down on the capsule, they'll taste that nice fishy oil and soon they'll  be accepting the caps as treats.
My dogs all love these salmon oil capsules and I'm happy that they're getting something to help keep them healthy and moving with less pain.
Chewy sent us a bottle of NaturVet Salmon Oil Caps at no cost to us in exchange for our honest opinion.

You pups are so lucky! I so wish that salmon oil and I got along together.
