I doubt it; dogs generally don't think that way. Who starved, neglected and abused him, by the way? Mustang Sally

That dog is an ex racer. Do some research on Greyhounds and racetracks![/nq]I might suggest the same thing to you. I run a greyhound rescue group and have been to quite a number of racetracks. How many have you been to, and toured behind the scenes? I'm anti-racing (though I do love to watch the dogs run, and most of them love to run), but I can tell you this: trainers of racing greyhounds do not starve, neglect and/or abuse the dogs in their care. If they did, the dogs wouldn't/couldn't run, and if they can't run, the trainers don't get paid.

There are exceptions to this rule, of course, just as there are exceptions to every rule (for example, adopters of ex-racing greyhounds are usually responsible pet owners, but sometimes they starve, overfeed, neglect, and/or abuse their dogs). When those exceptions are discovered, they're thrown out of the industry, because the industry doesn't need anyone who will make it look bad.
Rescue/adoption groups who tell the public that racing dogs are abused usually are looking for pity donations, pity adoptions or both.

Poor Sally! Caught once again mouthing off about something she knows nothing about. BTW, I can't believe that you didn't know that feeding fish oil to a Greyhound would make it go from being starved, neglected and abused to being beautiful, trusting and very healthy.

I have to tell you, Suja, I turned 50 last week, and I'm very embarassed that by this age I didn't know feeding fish oil could have such miraculous results. So I guess if they'd fed fish oil to that dog on the track, then he wouldn't have been starved, neglected and abused? I am hoping that hadleysgirl will educate me on greyhounds and racetracks!
But seriously, Fur Paw's point about large fish oil is a very good one. Perhaps that natural wild salmon oil isn't as good as it's cracked up to be.

Don't you have a couple of spooks you can experiment on? They could un-spook themselves if only you fed a goodly amount of fish oil.

BTW, with having doggie visitors of late, I've seen some strange reactions to fish oil capsules. Luna would bite it, drop it on the ground and roll in it (resulting in a bath). Satchmo who is terribly food motivated just gummed it around, figured it to be non-food, and spit it out. My two always crunch into them and eat them as treats. Haven't known a dog that didn't.

Absolutely. I've been feeding the dogs fish oil capsules from Costco - fancy stuff gets expensive when you're feeding 1000 mg/10 pounds of body weight. The label says it's made from anchovy, sardines and mackarel, so we're good on that front.

One of the reasons that I buy online is that the local feed store only carries salmon-based fish oils, which I think is the norm for fish oil supplements for pets.

Is there a difference between fish oil supplements for pets and humans? IIRC, the last time I compared, the difference was more in the packaging/marketing/price than in contents.
