American Journey Salmon Oil #ChewyInfluencer

Did you know that fish oil has many benefits for our dogs?

But, not all fish oils offer the same benefits.

Disclosure: The Lapdogs are Chewy Influencers and received a bottle of American Journey Salmon Oil, free of charge, in exchange for spreading the word about the product and Chewy. We only share information that we feel is relevant to our readers. All opinions expressed are our own.

When choosing a fish oil supplement for your dog, you'll want to look for one that is rich in eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) - the two long-chain fatty acids that are easiest for dogs to absorb. These Omega-3s are usually found in the oil of fatty fish like salmon, sardines, and anchovies.

I have incorporated salmon oil into the Lapdogs' diet in the past, but have not been doing so lately. So when our friends over at Chewy asked if we wanted to try American Journey Wild Alaskan Salmon Oil, I didn't hesitate to say yes!

The benefits of giving dogs salmon oil are tremendous. Here is just a sampling of what it does...
  • acts as an anti-inflammatory for conditions associated with the heart, kidneys, skin and joints - including arthritis, allergies, heart disease, and inflammatory bowel disease
  • promotes a shiny, healthy coat
  • reduces itchy skin and dandruff (which can decrease hot spots)
  • promotes healthy vision
  • aids in the mental development of fetuses and puppies
  • boosts your dog's immune system
  • lowers blood pressure
  • acts as a natural cancer fighting agent

After reading that list, salmon oil sounds like a pretty awesome, powerful supplement, doesn't it? Which means it must be pretty expensive, right? Nope. American Journey Salmon Oil, which is exclusive to Chewy, is not only high quality, but affordable too!

American Journey Salmon Oil has been veterinary formulated for adult dogs, and is proudly made in the USA. It is richer in Omega-3s than farm-raised fish or plants due to the EPA and DHA that it contains, and the oil has been stabilized with all natural rosemary to preserve the flavor and freshness, producing a great taste that dogs love.

The Lapdogs love the taste, and I love the convenience and affordability. The squeeze bottle is much easier to use than messy pumps, and it will keep in the fridge for 6 months after opening.

We almost chose to try the salmon oil. We all get fish oil capsules daily as well as eating fish at least once a week. Mom says she'll order some salmon oil next. It sounds tasty and convenient and is very good for us.

I knew that fish oil had a lot of benefits to us! I take a Fish oil vitamin daily. But, I had no idea or never considered giving it to our puppy!

I take fish oil daily but didn't know the benefits were so similar for pups! I'll definitely have to remember this tip when I adopt a dog...which will be soon I hope!! I have serious puppy fever, lol.

I definitely need to get more salmon oils into my dogs, especially my Husky Icy, she's so active & hard on her joints. Thanks for providing this information about salmon oils not all being created equal.

I didn't know this kind of oil could have so many benefits for dogs. I think it sounds like a good one to add to the diet.

Omgosh, I take fish oil supplements for myself, but never thought to give it to our dogs. I ay have to try this since one of our dogs has some skin issues.

I take a fish oil supplement everyday but I would never have thought to give our dog one as well. Of course now it makes perfect sense. I will definitely have to remember this.

Wow never knew that dogs actually needed this. I'm planning on getting a German shepherd puppy soon so would love to see some more tips. Thanks.

I always gave fish oil to Thor. Lately I've added it to Dearly Beloved's and my supplement list, as well. I know if yours came from Chewy, then it's great stuff.

The boys get fish oil every day so I will definitely give this a try.

My boxer would love this stuff. Or at least I would love what it would do to her coat! Great product!
