Question: Can I give CocoSoya to my elderly dog with dry skin and poor appetite?  I have had him at the Vets 3-4 times over the last 6 weeks and we can not find anything wrong.  He is a 12 yr. old Collie.  Cocosoya does wonders for my 32 yr. old horse.  If I can give this to my Collie, what would be the dose for a 75# dog?

Dr. Kellon: Yes, you can and smaller animals seem to love it as much as horses.  Try 1 tablespoon/day. If that doesn't help, try CocoOmega, or Uckele's Canine Omega Oil.  Some skin conditions of dogs respond best to high omega-3.
