American Journey Wild Alaskan Salmon Oil #chewyinfluencer


It is that time of the month when I review a product from Chewy that I received for free in exchange for my honest opinion. This month I saw the American Journey Wild Alaskan Salmon Oil I knew I would be picking that option. It is specifically marketed for dogs, but salmon oil is salmon oil and it is good for most pets. Salmon oil is high in long-chain omega 3 fatty acids like DHA and EPA which are good for skin and coat health as well as their immune system. It is also very good for aging kitties as they are also helpful to ease arthritis or achy joints (Jack and Muffin) and kidney issues (Muffin) (so my vet said)


I like that it is in an opaque container because when fish oils are exposed to light they start to go rancid. I'm not a fan of the container it is in since it is a squeeze dispenser, like a mustard bottle, and controlling how much comes out is something I haven't figured out how to do. But, since they could use a lot of it, I figured a squeeze would do.

But, would the kitties like it?  I squeezed some on a plate and offered it to Jack.


Jack had a lick and decided it wasn't something he was willing to eat right off the plate. So I offered it to Muffin.


Muffin took a lick, but she wasn't willing to eat it right off the plate either. I am not surprised. Would they like it mixed in baby food?


Yes, yes they did. They even didn't mind it mixed into their raw food. I put a squirt on each serving of food for the kitties and it was all consumed. It is nice to have an option to add fish oils to my cat's food after it thaws. I put a lot in their food when I make it, but we can't know how much of it survives the freezing process, this way I can know they are getting a little bit more.

Have you ever thought of adding fish oil to your cat's food?

  6. We don't but it may benefit Toby. He has the arthritis issue here. Not so much since we moved to Florida though.

  7. Ooh, I'm going to show your post to The Hubby, and he'll start adding fish oil to Angel and Chuck's food. We'll start with something bought off the shelf, but if we continue, we'll order from Chewy's. Thanks for this!

  9. We never liked having fish oil added to our foods. Maybe because it wasn't the right kind. We'll give this salmon oil a look.
