Fish oil for your dog

Fish oil has been shown to reduce cortisol (the stress hormone) in adult humans and this was also confirmed as being the case in dogs in a smaller study by Nestle. Raised cortisol is linked to aggression and anxiety and reduced levels of serotonin and GABA, the calming neurotransmitters.

Fish oil also has an anti-inflammatory effect in the body, helping to shunt tryptophan into serotonin as oppose to the more inflammatory kynurenine, which is associated with depressive disorders.

Here is a chart you can use as a guide to how much fish oil to feed your dog. It states around 100mg/kg body weight.

Where possible buy your supplements directly from the supplier as popular online retailers sometimes suffer from people selling counterfeit pills.

None of the fish oil I recommend here is particularly low cost. Low-cost brands exist, and while I don’t wish to endorse them, if that is all your budget can stretch to then it is better than nothing. Cheaper fish oils can be at risk of rancidity. If you choose low-cost fish oil, check for flavourings and sweeteners that may be unsuitable for your dog. Avoid added fat-soluble vitamins such as A and D which will already be in your dog’s complete food, and would be toxic in excess.
