hi all
as i mentioned in the post about my dog Willy's eye i took him to the vet today for a senior visit. mainly about his wonky eye but also because his back legs are deteriorating. he does not seem to be in any pain yet but he is very wobbly and struggles really badly getting into cars. he couldnt even get into my tiny Prius today and fell out :-(

after talking about medication vs supplements with the vet i switched his joint supplement to the one they recommend and she also recommended adding fish oil to his diet which i did not buy there.

im curious if anyone knows if coconut or flaxseed oil would have the same benefits as fish oil.
my dogs are not vegan but i prefer buying vegan or at least vegetarian products when possible but my main concern is his health so if fish oil is the best thing i will go with that.
i have a dog trainer friend on fb who said she has used all 3 oils for various things on her dogs at various times and said her understanding was that for joint things the vegetarian oils dont do quite as well. she's not veg*n but i know she researches everything for her dogs to the nines so i trust her word but im wondering what others who are more concerned with the animal welfare aspect of the products have to say

I think I've seen blends at WF that say they match the benefits of fish oil. That could be something to look into.
