As the weeks passed, my dogs skin and coat continued to improve. Eventually All of his flakiness disappeared and his coat is soft, shiny, and gets compliments from everyone, even stranger's. Not sure, but I think it might have also helped with some of his joint pain (i also give him glucosamine chondroitin). Anyways, when i first went to order my 2nd bottle, this brand was temporarily unavailable so i ordered a different brand (don't remember the brands but is in a gold can and described as also being odorless salmon oil). Wow, my dog distinctly did Not like it. I honestly didn't think he'd notice the difference but he didn't want to eat his food when I added that stuff, which Never happens. After a well of him turning up his nose, I tossed that stuff and fortunately this brand was available again. Try It! You won't regret it. P.s. I keep mine upright in the fridge, and pump it out cold. It comes out easily and has never leaked or spilled-- which is good even though it doesn't smell.
I wouldn't call it unscented, maybe barely scented or lightly scented. This formula is the closest I've found to "unscented" since I used to get omegaderm back in 2008. Sadly they reformulated their product when the company came back.
Cats mostly decide on these types of products based on smell and not taste, so I gave you 3 stars for taste because the dogs like it. I'm not sure that it's the taste that is the issue with my cats. However, since they are hesitant when it is only in a small amount of wet food, I am assuming that taste is part of it.
Overall this is a great product. All 5 pets get it daily. Shedding has decreased, while coat quality has increased. I use 8 pumps daily and this lasts me about a month, so the price point is just right. I find some of these products to be ridiculously over priced. I don't feel like I'm paying a fortune every month to supplement my 3 cats and 2 dogs....and that in itself is a huge plus! For all of those reasons combined, I give this product 4 stars. I highly recommend this for anyone wanting to supplement their pet for their skin, joints, coat, allergies, etc. If you don't like the smell of fish oil, this is the least smelly product that I have found on the market currently.
Side notes about using oil supplements in pet dishes from a Vet Tech/Pet Nutritionist:
1. Wash your pets bowls at LEAST once per week to prevent left over oils from accumulating and becoming rancid. This can give your pet the appearance of a decreased appetite when the real issue is that they smell rancid oil when they put their face in their bowl. I can't tell you how many pets I've seen do this, especially with plastic dishes. If you increase washing and switch to glass or stainless steel, you'll be amazed at how interested your pet will suddenly be over the same diet you've always fed.
2. Use stainless steel or glass dishes. Oil leeches into plastic and even some ceramics. The oil is therefore never fully removed, it accumulates in the pores of the materials and goes bad. When it gets rancid it will have a foul smell which is intensified for anomals. As stated, this can make it appear as if your dog isn't interested in their food when the real issue is the smell coming from the dish, not the food.
3. All pet food has oils in it. If you use a plastic food bin and do not bleach it weekly and allow to fully dry before refilling (no one does that, it's not practical!) then your food bin contains rancid oils and probably a ton of grain mites. If you like your container, just use an unscented trash bag to line the bin and then change it with each new food bag. You can also get a metal trash can, but I still recommend lining it if you don't want to wash it every few months. If you use plastic water fountains, for the love of God open up all the pieces every 2 to 3 weeks and scrub the heck out of it. They grow algae within a week. Fun fact...if you bleach something and allow it to dry fully and completely, the bleach residue evaporates and leaves no trace. Don't be afraid to bleach the water fountains....just plan on leaving it in the sun all day. Always be cautious with bleach around your pets...they are very sensitive to the smell and can develop upper respiratory symptoms from inhalation. Do this in a well ventilated room away from your pet.
(I worked in vet medicine and pet nutrition for years, hope this helps at least one family out there!)
My dog has a very sensitive stomach and has to eat a prescription dry food with easily digestible fiber, so I feed her half dry and half wet (again prescription) with a bit of chicken broth and 2 pumps of salmon oil and she she has not had any problems with this. I microwave the broth and wet for just a few seconds to take the chill off the food, and then mix it with her dry. It does definitely help with her coat and skin; I saw results within a few days.
I used to dislike giving my dogs fish oil because of the smell - it's pretty gross. But this product is great because you really can't smell anything.
