    We have been feeding our 17 week old Golden Innova Large Breed. The Vet recomended DermaPet Eicosaderm . Is this a good idea or is not needed?

    What's in it? It may not be needed, but it may not hurt. Can't really say. :)

    How is your pup doing on the food? Is it the LB puppy or LB adult?

    I would go with a salmon oil personally...

    How is she doing on it? Why would the vet make that recommendation? Is her skin flaky or something? It sounds like a skin/coat supplement.

    I'm assuming that it has a lot of eicosapentanoic acid, thus the name "Eicosaderm". Docosahexaenoic acid is more beneficial for your puppy's cognitive development but you want to keep things balanced.

    I don't think the supplement will be of any major benefit. Fish body oil (specifically salmon) would be much more beneficial.

    I use Lakse Kronch, others on this board prefer Grizzly Salmon Oil.

    Is Lakse Kronch a biscuit or a liquid?

    Both the Grizzly and the Kronch are liquids.
