Thumbs down Fish oil- side effects

So Jessie since was on Royal canin anallergenic was fed fish oil as coat was so dry and continued when raw fed till early this year i stopped it. Recently after belly inflammation added it to her diet only she came cuddles onto my arm/shoulder and my cardigan smelt of anal glands and so did she. I spoke to a friend on facebook which is @Rain who advised me to stop it for few days and try a different brand. Figured id go with teh brand we used previously as it was a different brand i was using.

All good except straight after feeding her the fish oil omg the gas! it is really bad like she has poo in the house and it was soft but easyish to pick up.

the gas has continued and she has gassed out me, my lounge, bed sheets, my dad and mum. Its really strong and horrible. I know it isnt anal glands as 2 years in may she had them taken out. Now since giving fish oil she also pee in my house massive amount and not long ago in parents lounge, can it affect urine PH OR urine problems? what are the side effects of using it in dogs? i tried coconut oil and her stomach was always gurgling from it and poo wasnt as nice also weight gain. So thought of fish oil bad mistake.

Anyone any idea, advice or suggestions please?

That sounds really abnormal for fish oil ime, especially if you were giving it to her before hand with zero issues. I would be pretty alarmed about that and call your vet for suggestions!

Haha yeah, good luck at the vet keep up updated! It's the peeing and pooing everywhere that has me worried! I can understand if she had a stomach upset maybe she'd poop but the peeing is really weird and I wouldn't think that would be a side effect of anything involving a stomach upset but of course I could be wrong!

I think the vet is your best bet. You might try a bland diet until then? Perhaps its her current food?

current food is usual rabbit and goat and rabbit venison and tripe. only thing changed in past week is added k9 natural treats to diet for bit variety since doing well on ziwipeak venison treats but they dont have heart and kidney in them like k9 natural ones.

I can still smell her farts from the cushion she was laying on thats how bad it is. Jess has had issues with urine in past and that was due to food with the fruit and veg but they excluded. Will ring vet to see if need consult and def keep you all updated. bland diet would be tripe.

Hmm just thought of something, how slow did you start her on the fish oil. Did you do it little by little working up to the full dose, of start her off on the full dose? If you didn't start slow then her tummy may just need time to adjust, and you could try taking her off of it for a couple weeks then if the gas stops start her back on it but do so slowly working your way up to the full dose.

Zody gets gas on fish based foods, even when I transition him onto it slowly, but it does get a bit better after he's been on it awhile, never completely goes away though. It also causes him to develop a doggy smell so I've learned to just not feed him those foods.
