Fish Poppers

Back when I was recovering from my surgery, we got an email from Stanislaw and Big Pupi telling us all about fish oil and how beneficial it is so mom asked Stan and Big Pupi lots of questions did her homework and guess what came in the mail?Gosh, mom - do you think you bought enough or do we need more?!So right before dindin mom handed us each a fish popper! Stan and Big Pupi call them fish poppers so we're going to do the same thing!We didn't waste any time sniffing them to make sure they weren't poison or anything! We just swallowed them down, just like Stan and Big Pupi said we would!

In Stan's words, "It is important to include vitamin E with your fish oil, as it increases the absorption of the oil and does other good things when it comes to the metabolizing of the fishies." Okay,Stan and Big Pupi! We hear ya loud and clear! Don't they both sound like professors?! So mom bought us vitamin E to go with the fish poppers so I think we're all set for the next 5 years!

Thank you so much Stan and Big Pupi for your awesome suggestion! We'll let you know if our coats shine as pretty as yours do! But in the meantime - these fish poppers are really yummy! It's like having dessert BEFORE dindin

So until next time................

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch

Our mom gives us Salmon oil instead of fish oil and it doesn't taste so yummy. She puts one gelcap on our food and then disguises it with yogurt. Sometimes, I (Poppy) weed it out and leave it on the floor. We're going to tell her to go back to fish oil once she runs out of the dreaded salmon oil!

G'day Pals
We have fish oil tablets everyday, though some days we have fish fillets or fish heads. We've been taking them for years. They usually are hidden inside some tasty morsel like a piece of sausage. We're glad you like taking them.

Aki and Poopie said...

manang gives us fish oil too. although ours is cod liver oil. the vet said it is good for our skin and works like vitamin e. giving it is a little tricky though, for poopie, that is.

i hope your mum doesnt have any problem giving it to you.

drooly kisses,


pee-ees. i agree those bottles wouls surely last you for the next 5 years.. haha

parlance said...

Thanks for the interesting info on fish oil. I'm going to pop over to Noah's blog and see what Australian brand on oil he uses.
is this one a special brand for dogs?

We take fish oil capsules every once in a while but Mommy found something new for us & it's called Flaxseed! Oh, it smells just as fishy as fish. No joke! Okay, not a very strong smell but we love it! Faith would even eat a few spoonfuls just like that! Flaxseed is pretty cheap surprisingly & we found ours at an Organic shop & also at a shopping complex. It's good for blood flow, reduces cholesterol(pawfect for Chloe!) & it's a fat blocker or something like that. Flaxseed is something we recommend coz it's good for your diet! Even Oprah is eating Flaxseed & Dr.Oz recommends to everyone. BOL! Our hoomans will just put in two teaspoons full of blended Flaxseeds(must be crushed or else nothing will work) in each meal. We LOVE it! You must really try...

Faya said...

Fish oil is good for a lot of things. We have one teespoon each day in our meat (with vegetables and fruits)...

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

Oh boy, you know what, I think my mom is gonna follow you guys adding fish oil, flaxseed onto my diet. Thanks for sharing, my mom better hide the fish oil into a piece of chicken or beef or liver, haha, win win din din!
PS: Where did your mom get the fish oil?

Dughallmor Beagles said...

Yup, we sometimes get fish poppers too.....don't you pop them between your teefs? They taste even fishier then, nom nom nom! If you're getting fish oil you need the Vit E but if you're getting the poppers aren't the cases made of Vit E anyway? Mum puts all sorts of seed in with our BARF, yum!

Agatha and Archie said...

We take it too! WE were doing flax oil and salmon oil and then when we went to the nitritionist she gave us these omega capsules!! Love A+A

well this sucks said...

Ooooh where can we get those!?
Looks like you're really enjoying them!

Moco said...

We have those with our dinner. Foley gets three, Dawson gets two and I get one. Our fur seems to be much softer when the hopeless human remembers to put them on the kibble.

Hi Maggie and Mitch! My mom gave fish oil to Freddie (the nice pup they had before me) when he was suffering from hip dysplasia. He was already taking several other things the vet recommended, but the fish oil did seem to help.

See ya!

Stanislaw said...

Oooh! Delicious! We so totally dig our fish poppers. Give it a month or so to really show its true effects on your coat (the fur needs to grow out a little). I'm not sure if it's possible for you to be handsomer beasts, but it can't hurt!

Happy fishy feasting.

Arran, Arthur and Mum said...

Your mum sure has stocked up! BOL! I don't get these thingies but mum says she might get some now for Penny. I has a piece of fish once a week. Fish be soo yum!

hi kiddos, congrats on your humengous supply of fish poppers. they look yummy! our mom get special salmon oil and squirts it on our food everyday - no poppers for us, but we like the stinky smell and taste of it on our food. we'll have to look into that vitamin e thing. Stanislaw and Pupi get to eat a really good diet. they know a lot about that stuff.


Niamh said...

Fish is delish!! Your coats will be gorgeous and maybe the fish poppers will help you with your beard growth.

Your friend,

Joe Stains said...

We get fish poppers everyday too! all the boys in the house get them, Dad, Me and Tanner. Dad refuses to eat fish so he takes a pill with us!

Cassie said...

SO funny. Dad was just restocking his weekly pill box with his fishoil when Mom started reading your blog about it.Both Hootie & I get a flaxseed oil pill each morning.We did get fishoil for a while,but they folks thought it made our breath too stinky.We LOVE anything that's stinky but then Mom squirts Scope into our mouth and that is grrrrrosssss. sloppy kisses, BabyRocketDog

Stanley said...

Hey, Maggsie & Mitch,

We get fish poppers too, but not as much vitamin E as fish poppers. We'll have to check into that. Don't you just love the oily fishy goodness of them?!

Welcome to the club, pups!

Goober love & smooches,

Archie and Melissa said...

what a great post.

emmitt says he sits and cries every morning until we give him his fish pill and doggie multi vitamin.
he loves them. i think he thinks they are cookies. :)

Hollie and Janie said...

Quinvale AstaLaVista Baby said...

Oh my dawg, Maggie & Mitch,

Hi, Maggie and Mitch!

Have a good night

Amber and Nala said...

Randi said...

Hey! I take fishy poppers too! for long time...they really help my fur furs stay shiny!

The 3 G-Dales said...

Well, maybe we need to get Fish Poppers...cuz our Daddy gives us SARDINES! Mumsie thinks its "just disgusting" and then she won't kiss us...says our beardies smell like fish! (errr, well, they do) and maybe, just pawsibly, this could help out! Our food has Omega 3 in it and Jack-a-bum gets a supplement with that stuff in it and other stuff too. I pawsonally like the Missing Link in my pupper-do din-dins....yummy gravy! Whatever works though you Doodle Dales.....we love ya and want ya HEALTHY!!!!!

Nose Pokes and Smooches to you!

Kess And Her Mama said...

Twinkle a.k.a Chicken Little said...

Teddy said...

That sounds like a great idea for me (and for Mom too!). Thanks for the suggestion!


Hana said...

I bet you two were eating those things like candy!

Chow Chow said...

I see you are recovering well. If only all medicine taste as good as these fish poppers!

Teddy Bear said...

How did they taste?

Princess, Tank and Isaac: The Newfs of Hazard said...

Hope it works for you better than it did for us. Dad put it in our food for months and no difference. No difference when he stopped it, either.

Bae Bae said...

Oh that's good... Now your diet is more healthy. ;)

Huskee and Hershey said...

Hi Maggie,
I take Omega 3 too (I share them with Grandpa!!)... Mom says it is good for me cos I am getting old. I don't know what she is talking about.. do you?

Anonymous said...

my Jeannie says they are good for your brain power too, so I kinda think she should perhaps start taking some of them!

erin said...

I take fish oil too. My girl squirts two of them onto my kibble every morning. It helps me not to be so itchy in the winter.

The Army of Four said...

Storm and I get really stinky fish oil squirted on our food everyday to help our joints. It is soooo stinky - it's GREAT! And it helps us a lot!
