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.
Well in the past she had a full capsule so did that every few days at first then daily last two days just had poo not long ago half solid and direha. Dr mike thinks could be intolerance or too much so far but now im thinking the colitis has flared up because she was straining after pooing. It also wasnt comfortable for her to poo so suggests lots of inflammation.
Vet says give her some time (few weeks) then try four drops only and see what happens.

She on raw diet from same company get from. Its is the fish oil for sure even the vet says that. This food she on agrees with her and doesnt cause it. She was like this on fish based kibble but was ok with the oil until now.

Thanks will look into it but reluctant to even try fish oil again yet.
