Best fishoil or other supplement for an anti inflamatory?

Hi guys... Chewys been on and off a prescription anti inflamatory since his knee surgery a few months ago -Carprofin (??) I keep a RX at home too, since I have bad knees also.... Does anyone have a reccomendation for something natural I can keep at home to replace the pills? He already takes so many tablets a day for his allergies... and Im not sure about the side effects of prolonged Carprofin use (Not even sure of my vet would constantly refill this for us anyways... ) I know fish oil will help, but Ive been reading that certain types are better than others.

Any advice on natural anti inflamatories for strained muscles?

Probably the best source of Omega 3's is krill oil, but it's pretty pricey. otherwise, Salmon, Anchovy and mackeral oils are good. They don't have the murcury level of say salmon tends to have. (I'm sure you can find it purified murcury free, but it may take some looking).

For joints, I use chicken feet and/or trachea. Those are good sources of chondrointin and MSM.

I believe Curcumin is a natural anti-inflammatory compound found in tumeric and can be added to their food if they like it.

I get it like this because I think the manufactures are a little more careful with human formulas. I got the dosage from the other formula.

Castor Oil. I swear by it.

It's a natural anti-inflammatory I use for my own knees; it can be taken orally or rubbed in topically to help soreness from bruising, arthritis, etc., and I've given it to dogs with serious joint and disc degeneration issues on numerous occasions. I can say it helped with relieving severe swelling between spinal discs (intervertebral disc disease) just as well as the steroidal inflammatory medications prescribed for the condition in the past.

I think that most supplements with Omega 3 have fish oil. I just buy the big costco branded fish oil gel caps and give one a day. Its not cheap but not terrible either.
