    My wife ordered some Castor oil but instead received cod liver oil. She reordered for Castor oil but now we are stuck with a bottle of cod liver oil capsules.

    I did a search if beneficial for Dobermans and really did not find any specifics.

    What are your thoughts for giving cod liver oil? Good for Dobermans? Benefits? How much to give if feeding kibble?

    I have friends who give their dogs CLO to keep their coats nice and shiny/glossy (1 tablet every other day) with no problems.

    I’ve never given it to my dogs. I learnt that CLO is high in vitamins A & D. So too much and/or too often could become a problem.

    I'd say it's better for the humans to pop one of these every few days. I take CLO and a separate Vit D as we need way more D than is provided in the CLO. Vit A is great for skin, it's the basis for retinol and is an antioxidant. I like that it is D3 instead of the other variants. Since we're not in tropical parts of the world, I do believe we need supplementing of that.

    I have wondered about sun exposure and vit D generation in dogs because I assume their fur hinders the absorption, but haven't researched it. Kaiser gets Krill Oil when his protein is not fish.
