Thank you sooooooo mchI give my girl a fish oil capsule every morning. She thinks it is a treat, so she gets it right after she goes out to do business first thing in the morning. My Annie is a smooth hair, but I don't think that would make any difference. Her skin is fine now and her coat is shiny and healthy looking. For the first six weeks or so, I gave her one in the morning and one at bedtime. Be prepared for fish breath for about an hour after each capsule.
