Flameout for Dogs?


#1

My wife read somewhere that fish oil was good for dogs' joints. We have a 12-year old Brittany Spanial who has seen better days. I started dropping a fish oil into his food each night.

Now he seems more energetic and playful.

Thought I'd pass the tip on.


#2

I know TC gives his dogs Flameout as well

Phill


#3

I remember TC saying his dog is on more routine of supplements - more than the average gym goer too if I remember correctly!

I think he mentioned Flameout and Rez-V as staples.


#4

Sure, my dogs get 4 Flameout a day, 1 REZ-V, and half a scoop of Low-Carb Metabolic Drive (mixed with yogurt, natural peanut butter, ground flax seed, and water) at bedtime.

Then I read them stories from "1001 Arabian Nights" as they snuggle in their fleece-line Tempurpedic beds.

You've gone too far and you know it.


#6

Hmmm, interesting. I think my 12 year old Pomeranian could use some. I will make him live FOREVER... now won't my husband love that, LOL.

I just don't know if I want to share my Flameout...


#7

hey TC,

I remember reading you feed you dogs real food and homemade treats, care to share what they are...I personally think it make a great short article.


#8

Do you play "fetch" with 20 pound dumbells?


#9

I give my dog fish oil as well. Gotta take care of my girl.


#10

My dog loves fish oils. I give her 5 grams a day.


#11

I cook real food for my dog. She gets eggs, chicken, natural peanut butter,ground flax seeds, some beef and cheese. She also gets a teaspoon of the same fish oil I take.

She loves ground pumpkin too...oddly enough.


#12

I'm not sure it's a good idea to give a dog testosterone boosters - unless you like having your leg humped.


#13

I think secretly most people do.


#14

"Go on, Sparky, go fetch! Go fetch!"

throw...thud

"Sparky? SPARKY!"


#15

How does one give their dog Flameout? Just shove it in their mouth and they chew it up?


#16

I'd imagine that standard pet food does not go out of its way to provide omega-3's.

No harm in making sure your pets cover their nutritional bases as long as you know which foods to avoid giving them.


#17

While I dont give my dog my beloved Flameout, I do give him two grams of omega 3-6-9 fish oils a day. I'm not sure if I've noticed any significant difference, but he loves them as treats.


#18

My dog absolutely loves them. I just put a few capsules in her food bowl and that's the first thing she goes for. Down the hatch they go. Since she pops them open in her mouth, I figured she would have some nasty fish breath, but nope.
