Fish oil?

I just got some fish oil for my furlings. They looooove it. I just pop a few capsules and sprinkle the oil onto their food. Does anyone else do this? I have to wash my hands after. I remember that stuff stinking to high heaven when I was a kid (my younger bro got into grandma's stock and the neighborhood kids followed him for weeks) but it doesn't smell too terrible now.

    Hi Ariel- I hope this doesn't sound too dumb, but what's the fish oil for? Sounds tasty, what kind of benefits does it have for us cats? Maybe our mom should get some for us.

    I have heard that it is good for their coats. Aurora has dry skin and dandruff so I am hoping this is a great tasting solution. My neighbor has a shiba inu and the poor doggie's paws were raw and red from chewing. My neighbor started feeding her the capsules as a treat. Her paws are still a little pink, but it helped soothe the excema which was causing the irritation.

    Fish oil contains oemga 3s and fatty acids, both are which are good to maintain healthy fur and skin. There are treats with omega 3s and fatty acids. My favorite is Vita Kitty

    I second the VitaKitty treats. I recently bought the chicken breast kind and my cat loves them. He goes crazier over them than any other kind of treat, including fish. And from the looks of the ingredient list, it's obscenely healthy for him. Finding the treats was really a relief because I'm in the process of eliminating fish from his diet.
