My vet recomended we use Dreamcoat on Scarlet...her coat is really dry and just not as healty as it could be. I went to the store to pick it up and the teenager who helped me did not recomend it because it has soy bean oil...she said " I dont know how you feel about soy bean oil but I dont recomend it." Well I got it anyway because I figure if the vet approves it its OK....


so...whats up with soybean oil...is it thats its fatty? The vet did tell us it is the equivalent to a tbsp of butter in their meals...but Scarlet can use it. We are not giving it to clutch.

Does anyone else use this??? Should I switch to something esle???

While I am sure dreamcoat will work to make your dog's coat shiny, good nutrition would too. I would examine what you were feeding the dog before spending money on the oil. So what do you feed?

:lol: I thought all his hair loss/bald spots, shedding and dull coat were maybe from allergies, so he eats DVP duck.
Coat looked really good for a little bit, but now he has problems all
over again!! Maybe he isnt allergic :?

So is that a pill??? I now they have bottles of the fish oil pills...they look just like vitamin E pills and you just poke them and squeeze the liquid out. Do you think I should give more then one of those a day?

It's like a thick gel capsule. I don't break them. I just put the whole capsule in their food and they eat it with their kibble. It says on the bottle you can take more than 1 a day. I would start with 1 though and increase. Some dogs get softer stool in the beginning.

If I were you since your have skin problems I'd get the Super Omega Comples that has Omega 3,6&9 in it. Fish Oil itself is only Omega 3.

I use the Omega Complex for Clara, too. I also get them at Wal-mart. The brand is "Natrol" Omega-3 Complex. There are 90 pills to the bottle and the bottle is very dark with a purple label and a purple cap. The web site is http://www.natrol.com I have to poke a hole in Clara's also and put it on a piece of bread to give to her. If she has the capsule she thinks it is fun to squeeze it between her teeth and watch the oil squirt out. :roll: Not fun to clean off carpet. I give Clara one a day. Although to be honest now that she is used to it, I have been thinking to increase it to one in the morning and one in the evening. This is how I do their Brewer's Yeast tablets.

They have it at Costco too. I was just looking at them this weekend.

As for feeding them pills, I play a game with our dogs where I throw a piece of kibble in the air (several times) and tell them "catch" at the end of every training session. I do this because it is fun, and it conditions them to eat stuff out of the air. We give Sibyl a supplement, that when put in her food, she spits it back out or leaves it in the bowl. Now I just toss it in the air during "catch" sessions and she will eat it every time.
