The Omega 3 Experiment and Helping Shelters in Need

Since I started taking Omega 3 about 7 weeks ago, I've noticed some changes . . .

my swimming ability has improved,

I'm beginning to grow scales and fins,

& I find myself longing to be among my fellow fishies . . . 


Okay, I'll be serious.  I'm taking Super Pure Omega 3 Capsules for my itchy skin/skin allergies, to see if it helps. Seven weeks into the experiment (which isn't long enough to get the full effect but probably long enough to notice improvement), we think it does. I'm scratching less (yay!), and my fur feels super soft. After I posted Relief from Itchiness?, I received lots of comments from friends who already take Omega 3, and they all say it helps their skin and fur.

We're planning to continue the Omega 3 experiment. Momma has already ordered more from If you'd like to learn more about the benefits of Omega 3 -- or any other pet health issue -- check out's educational articles in their Pet Health Center.

Helping Shelters in Need

Speaking of, did you know that they donate supplies to needy animal shelters? If you know of a shelter in need, go to Suggest A Shelter in Need and complete the form for consideration.

Taking Omega 3 doesn't really turn you into a fish.


  1. Because we live in the land of Really Dry Air, I give the girls fish oil regularly just to help their skin not get too dried out. I can't actually say I notice a difference, only because I've given it to both of them since they were pups! But they are both great swimmers! ;-)

    1. We live in the Land of High Humidity, so we sure don't have the problem with dry air here!

  2. Haha, the very last line of this post "Taking Omega 3 doesn't really turn you into a fish," made me laugh so hard! Riley takes fish oil (a human version) because she has brittle nails. She was breaking nails left and right before she started taking fish oil! She's been taking fish oil for the last 3 years and has only had 2 or 3 broken nails in the 3 years since she started taking it (as opposed to 2 or 3 broken nails every 6 months or so!). Riley does love swimming though...

    1. Ouch! Broken nails can bleed and really hurt. Glad Omega 3 helps!

  3. So glad to hear the fish oil seems to be helping!

  4. A good 6 months is the best test.....especially with spring coming up which is known to be itchy season !

  5. So glad to hear the supplements are helping you. We might need to give that a try! Much love, The Scottie Mom.

  6. Those things are miraculous
