My girls have had a little salmon and trout mousse with their dinner for years now in an effort to ward off painful joints. Mollie is now 12and apart from being hard of hearing can be a bit wobbly on getting up after a sleep. I have given Yumove Advanced for the past year to assist too. This time I ordered I had the little Yumove chews which I add to their food. A much easier way than crushing tablets. Thought you might like to know as they are new Very Happy

Thanks Gerrie that's a useful tip. I use yumove for our oldest spaniel (15yrs) but no need to crush the tablets for her I just chuck it in her dinner, gone in a flash Laughing

Well how easy is that Very Happy the little bone chews come in different strengths for different sizes. Mine prefer them. Pricey but they are worth it ..

Worth the extra if you've got a dog that wont take pills easily, the spaniels seem to eat anything I put in their bowls Laughing

Thanks for the tip, I'll remember those chews if Foxie ever stops eating the spoonful of DoggyFlex Plus I add to her meals. I have no problems at all with either Foxie or Miss You when I have to give them tablets. Being good French dogs, they will swallow anything hidden in a chunk of goat's cheese!!! Laughing

Every dog I have had has the gift of leaving pills stuck to bottom of dish Rolling Eyes
If I hide it in sausage and toss it to them they swallow it down eagerly but on examining their beards and tashes you find it hanging in there Laughing

I put yumove in Doz's food and she eats them, but have also found them stuck in her beard Laughing

She also has a supplement for her claws (SLO), but the little madam always finds a way to leave that one Rolling Eyes

I do find that if there is oil in their food their tums get a bit dodgy.. seems to be a bit rich so I stopped fish oils .

Salmon oil can have that affect, you may find fish body oil would be ok. I give mine Yumega itchy dog which has a little salmon oil in or Dorwest omega star. Sometimes just the plain omega 3 capsules, they seem fine with that.

You can do Gerrie but Natures Best do a good one made especially for dogs and cats so you know there is nothing harmful to them in it. Good price too. Wink yes it should certainly help with dry skin.

The fish oil capsules were human ones, and very good for their skin and coats.
