Oil for dogs: which one can be fed?

If you want to add oil to your dog’s food to do something good for his skin, hair and immune system, you can choose from various types – preferably in organic quality. You can read here which types are generally well tolerated by dogs.

Various fish oils for feeding dogs are popular and tried and tested. With their high content of omega-3 fatty acids, they are healthy for the dog’s skin and hair, support the cardiovascular system and can help with various skin problems such as dandruff and hair loss. The following varieties are suitable for dogs.

Fish and vegetable oils for dogs

Salmon oil is the classic among oils for dogs. It is available for humans, but also from many pet food manufacturers specifically for dogs. Cod oil and cod oil can also be fed to the four-legged friend. In addition, you can use vegetable oils, for example, walnut oil, linseed oil, pumpkin seed oil, hemp oil or canola oil. Safflower, corn germ and sunflower oil you should rather not, or only in very small quantities feed. These are said, according to a Scandinavian study, to be able to promote the development of cancer cells when fed regularly.

Tips for oil feeding

If you want to fortify dog food with oil available specifically for dogs, you should follow the feeding recommendations on the respective packaging. If you take normal oil, you should reach for high-quality, cold-pressed oil and preferably vary between the possible varieties, unless your veterinarian recommends permanent feeding of a certain variety.

A teaspoon given every two to three days or so on the food should be a good amount – it is best to discuss the individual amount for your four-legged friend with your vet if you are unsure. If you choose an oil in organic quality – for example from the health food store – you are also on the safe side that it contains as few harmful substances as possible.
