Omega fatty acid supplements can have amazing low or no side effect benefits. The dose and balance is as important as the supplement.
Oil dense fish like salmon tend to concentrate mercury which unfortunately is becoming a very high level environmental contaminant. Mercury toxicity is a slow cumulative disease. Not all supplements on the market are safe (the laws on nutraceuticals in the US is very very minimal). Consider, especially if starting life long treatment in a young dog using mercury cleared oil (it's very expensive) or flax see based fatty acid supplements. I recommend using a product made by a reputable company for dogs because you don't always get what the label says in these poorly regulated products. (Believe it or not this is not illegal due to the absence of regulation). Platinum performance is a trustworthy company.
