    Nothing will change unless I try. If I try and nothing changes -- at least I try!

    I got my last bottle from Whole Foods; I am not totally happy with it as it does not contain vit. E but it was all I could find. One pill was approximately the dosage this vet recommended.

    I thought the oxidation potential with the giant bottles of salmon oil was interesting.

    I have read that there is some evidence that fish/krill oil helps prevent further damage from TBDs that lurk in the body for years, such as Lyme.
    Interesting....and thanks for the Krill site...

    What is the difference in krill oil, salmon oil, and fish oil? Krill oil is super expensive and Walmart has salmon oil for $6

    In addition to helping with the skin, omega 3 are a natural anti inflammatory and help protect renal cells. That is the idea behind giving it to help with TBD. It can also help with the inflammation that goes along with arthritis and joints.

    We give our dog Blue Ice fermented cod liver oil. About a tea spoon on his food once a day. I also take a tea spoon but his is non-flavored and mine is cinneman!

    It's been suggested to take an antioxidant, Vit E, along with Fish Oils.

    You need to use oil from wild fish, check the label. The cheap stuff might be oil from farmed fish, which will not have the desirable fatty acid profile.

    Fish oil can be from any fish, including salmon. You want fish species that do not accumulate mercury toxins. Wild Alaskan salmon and wild sardines are good choices.
