Not a Fan of Fishy Dog Breath? Try Camelina Seed Oil #MeggaDog

Camelina microcarpa, Camelina flower

We give our dogs three oils – salmon oil, coconut oil and camelina seed oil.  Not at the same time.


Camelina seed oil is new to our dogs’ diet and I love it and they love it.  It gives us all the benefits of salmon oil, but has a longer shelf life and we don’t have to deal with the fishy smell.  I got fish oil on one of my favorite sweatshirts last year – it took me 2 months to get that smell out.


Extra virgin coconut oil is a daily supplement that benefits our dogs inside (clears up skin conditions, improves digestions, supports joint health and aids in weight loss) and outside (acts as a disinfectant for wounds).  I wrote about how much I love it a week ago.


We give our dogs Grizzly salmon oil in their meals – morning meals, just mixed in.  I’ve been told that Omega 3s are a must have for our dogs so I started with fish oil a year ago and switched to Grizzly salmon oil recently, because the fish oil has soy as an ingredient (something dog owners should avoid, because many dogs have soy intolerance).

We were introduced to camelina seed oil around the same time someone suggested that I toggle our dogs oils – so salmon oil once month, something different the next.  I couldn’t imagine what “something different” could be and then I received an email from The Seed Oil Company introducing me to Megga Dog.

I read about the oil and because they had a great special going, I ordered two bottles and I love it.


Many of the benefits of salmon oil can be found in camelina seed oil and more.  Camelina seed oil doesn’t have mercury, it has a longer shelf life, and it doesn’t leave our dogs with the fishy breath.

  • Nothing better for Dry Skin 
  • Energy for Performance Dogs
  • Naturally occurring Vitamin E, up to 10 times more potent than synthetic E
  • Supports Healthy Heart & Blood Circulation
  • Supports Healthy Joints and Connective tissues.
  • Enhance the Beauty and Shine of their coat.
  • Anti inflammatory properties
  • High Antioxidants
  • Strengthens Immune System
  • 100% Natural
  • Non GMO & Gluten Free
  • 2 year shelf life
  • No refrigeration needed
  • No Mercury
  • No fish odors

So I’m not kicking the salmon oil to the curb; instead, I give the dogs salmon oil for a few weeks and then Megga Dog camelina seed oil for  few weeks and then back again.  Our dogs love variety and camelina seed oil gives them the variety they crave.

Our dogs love the taste and I love that I’m able to give them something that boosts their health in so many ways.


With four dogs, nothing lasts long in our house, but I weigh the cost of the supplements we use against the benefits we get from them.  Our dogs’ coats are great, their skin is healthy.  Camelina seed oil not only aids in digestion, but it helps keep them fit and trim by boosting their metabolism and giving them the energy they need. It’s a great supplement for active dogs like our herding pack.

One bottle (about 32 ounces) is $15.99 – I picked up two bottles for $25 (great deal).  A bottle will last about a month in our house – two months when we toggle it with Grizzly salmon oil.  I signed up for the Seed Oil Company newsletter so that I get notifications of future deals.  I recommend this for you too.


Absolutely.  Just like Grizzly Salmon Oil For Dogs, Megga Dog camelina seed oil is giving us the results we expect.  When Scout and Zoey came to us, their coats were pretty rough.  We thought that this was just going to be the texture of their coats, but now it’s soft.  In fact, a friend stopped by the other day and pet all the dogs and commented “wow, your coat is soooo soft.”  They asked what shampoo we used – it’s not the shampoo, it’s the oils we add to their diet.

So if you’re not a fan of fishy breath, if you have a dog who craves variety, or if you’re just looking for an alternative to salmon oil OR something in addition to salmon oil, I encourage to you to give Megga Dog a shot.


  1. What a great and easy way to make your dog’s mouth smell better!

  2. Thanks for the heads up! I’ve never even heard of Camelina Seed Oil before, but it sounds like it has some great properties. I’ll be trying this for sure. We give our dogs salmon oil also, and even though it’s supposed to be odorless (and it IS better than the kind that doesn’t pretend to be odorless), nothing like a dog licking that fishy stink onto your hands or face.

    Out of curiosity, how do you give your dogs coconut oil internally? I read your post last week, but couldn’t tell.

    • Ahhh, I just scoop the coconut oil out with a spoon and let them lick it off the spoon :) The big dogs get a spoonful and the puppies share a spoonful.

  3. Your Post is very Used full thanks for Sharing I am really enjoyed this post.I’ve never even heard of Camelina Seed Oil before, but it sounds like it has some great properties. I’ll be trying this for sure.The big dogs get a spoonful and the puppies share a spoonful.

  4. Hi Kimberly-
    I have 2 dogs who are 10 pounds each. What is a good dosing of the camelina oil would you recommend???

    • I only give our dogs camelina oil from the Seed Oil Company and their Megga Dog has dosage instructions on the bottle. Looking at our bottle…

      1 teaspoon per 25# of body weight; 1/4-1/2 teaspoon under 10 pounds.

      • Thanks Kimberly! I wanted to purchase via your website, but the links were not working. 404 errors

        • Thanks for the heads up. I’ll fix the links now. By the way, if you go straight to the Seed Oil Company’s site – they’re offering 20% off if you use the code GUS. I don’t make a commission off of this, I just want everyone to save money. I just bought 2 more bottles the other day.

  5. I give Coconut Oil religiously… but I will definitely have to try the Seed oil. Thanks for the review!

    • A pleasure. Camelina oil is fantastic. I buy 2-4 bottles whenever they have a special.
