Ok, so this morning I bought Hobie what looked like an excellent skin & coat supplement oil from California Naturals. Omega 3s, flaxseed oil, vitamins, garlic etc.

I mixed 1/4 tsp in with her dry food and now an hour later she REEKS like garlic and some kind of other stinky smell. I am gagging just being in the room with her. :p

Has anyone experienced this??? I want her coat to be shiny & healthy but I can't take this smell. I don't know if it's her breath or if it's just permeating out of her.

It will go away in time. Kind of like eating garlic humus for humans. The product you're using sounds a little like the Omega Fields Horseshine product for equines.
If you're open to an alternative, just try some inexpensive generic fish oil capsules from the health food store. I gave the girls 1000 mg. a day for the first few months I had them to get their coats back up to snuff.

We use an Omega-3 fatty acid liquid supplement that his vet recommended. He gets the odd smell from his mouth usually, it comes and goes.
Today for some reason I have really noticed it.
A friend of mine who has a 2 yr old V has started to oach fish (salmon) and mix the meat in his V's kible with a bit of water. Apparently his dog loves it and he has noticed a nicer coat.
I think we'll try this once we finish the supplement.

It did go away after a little while - and I do think it was her breath. ;D

I'm gonna give it some time and see how it goes - if it's unbearable we'll explore other options.

Thanks!!
