How often should I give my dog salmon oil?

Add salmon oil to your dog’s food every day for the best health results. Consistent use of salmon oil over 3-4 weeks can give your dog a glossier coat, more appetite and improved cardiovascular health.

What makes Brilliant Salmon Oil unique?

Our salmon oil is uniquely fresh and therefore super tasty thanks to our high standards on salmon sourcing. We only source healthy and locally grown salmon which we use in our proprietary process to gently liberate the oil.

The result is a fresh, tasty and human grade salmon oil like no other.

Where does Brilliant Salmon Oil come from?

We make Brilliant every day on the coast of Western Norway in a small city called Aelesund.

Why should I use salmon oil for my pet?

The fresh taste of salmon helps make your pet’s food even tastier. Dogs and cats love the flavor, especially on kibble. Not only this, countless pet parents report a shinier coat, softer paws and more energy after just a couple of weeks of using Brilliant Salmon Oil.

How long does it take for salmon oil to work?

Most pet parents start seeing the results within 2-4 weeks of consistent use.

What is the recommended daily dosage?

The daily recommended dose is 1 pump per 6.6 lb (3kg). Use the fish oil dosage calculator to get your pet’s recommended dose.

If your pet is new to fish oil supplements we suggest starting with a smaller dose and gradually increase as the pet gets accustomed to the product.

Do not exceed more than 12 pumps per day.

How many pumps of oil are there in a bottle?

The 10 oz (300ml) bottle contains 300 pumps, while the 34 oz (1000ml) bottle contains approx 1000 pumps.

Can I store Brilliant Salmon Oil in the refrigerator?

Yes, you can, but it is not necessary. Thanks to the purity of our product, Brilliant has a 4 year shelf life before opening. Also note that Brilliant Salmon Oil is an extra virgin oil, which means that the oil may separate if stored chilled. The oil will normalize once back to room temperature. We recommend storge in room temperature.

Once your salmon oil bottle is open, use within 4 months for maximum freshness.

Can I give salmon oil to my cat?

You absolutely can! Cats love our salmon oil. Start off with half a pump and gradually rise the dose to the recommended daily allowance.

Can I give my puppy salmon oil?

Absolutely! As a puppy’s stomach can be more sensitive, we recommend starting with half the recommended dosage (see details on bottle – 1 pump per 3kg) for the first 2 weeks. Then, increase the dose to the recommended amount, or to the level that seems to suit your puppy best.

What does the 30-day money back guarantee mean?

Whatever condition your bottle is in, whether new and unopened or you’ve opened and your pet has tried it, you have the right to get your money back if you’re not happy. This is a ‘no quibble’ guarantee, meaning you won’t experience any resistance in requesting your refund. Simply email us and we will sort it out for you!

Is Brilliant Salmon Oil a sustainable product?

Brilliant Salmon Oil is produced from fresh salmon offcuts (head, skin and bones) from local farmers. These offcuts were previously regarded as waste, but is now upcycled into our proprietary process to produce high quality pet food toppers instead. We make sure nothing goes to waste.

Can salmon oil make my dog sick?

It is very unusual for dogs to vomit from eating salmon oil, but it is possible. If this happens to your dog, try having a break for a few days and then starting with 1/4 of the recommended dose. Vomiting from salmon oil can happen if your dog is already getting a good amount of fat in its diet already.

What does single ingredient mean?

Brilliant salmon oil is a 100% pure, single ingredient product. That means no chemical additives, no added tocopherols to reduce rancidity (as it’s not necessary) and absolutely no nasties. Just fresh salmon.
