roger I'm back with a short question--Pollo has been doing great thanks to yo I now need to know --My wife bought sardines in soy oil should I give this to Pollo--Thanks again--Don

Hi Don,

Glad to hear everything is going fine for the moment. Of course that's the way it is with our dogs, one day their doing good, next day who knows!

Even though soybean oil is not our favorite oil, it will be fine for a short run. Soybean products have a tendency to block some nutrients from absorption. So in the long run I wouldn't recommend it but for the short run, no problem.

My favorite is the ones in the mustard. I can't eat a can of those anywhere in our house without five dogs hearing me, finding me and wanting some.

But normally the ones in water are best. Some stores in our area are not even selling the ones in water any more. Not sure why.

Nature's Logic is one company that came out with sardine oil in a bottle for dogs. So that's really handy for those who don't like the smell or can't find the ones in water any more.

Let me know if you have any more questions, happy to help if I can.

I am certified in Dog Nutrition. Over 6 years now I've owned a natural pet food retail store. I've worked with hundreds of dogs and there owners to achieve better health. We promote a healthy balanced species related diet. This is the way nature made your pet to thrive. Fortunately for those who cannot or wish not to feed a raw based diet, there are alternatives with supplements and cooked food. Just don't let processed food be there only diet. Food is the most powerful medicine. Heal the core of the animal and the rest will take care of itself. We've turned the lives of many dogs around. There parents come back into the store and comment to us on how there dog acts like a real dog again. Our business is thriving and we continue to help many.

We work with Second Chance Companions, Must Love Dogs, members of ASPCA, HSUSA and started our own personal "Red Head Rescue" (non chartered) for stray dogs and rescue dogs from high kill shelters. We've been able to heal the many health ailments these dogs have and place them in good homes.
