Hello, I am wanting to create a dietary supplement for my dog and am wondering if acidophilus could be mixed with fish oil--and if so, how could it be stored? I am not sure if powered acidophilus would retain its helpful properties mixed in fish oil... what if other things were added? Such as kelp and apple cider vinegar? Would it work to refrigerate it? Just curious here, any suggestions appreciated.
First thank you for the amazing amounts of help you share. Through the inspiration of your readers I decided to put my Golden Retriever older puppy on a more informed diet than feeding her retail store junk. I give her a natural kibble and she is doing well. In the interest of protecting her joints in old age I have her on a supplement. To take it one step further I give her a teaspoon of flaxseed oil in her meals each day. After six months I noticed that she is not shedding profusely as a former golden did. I do brush her regularly but there is no excessive hair all over the house. Plus I noticed that her pads are very soft. Perhaps this could help a hair challenged pet owner out there? Aside from strengthening her body she has the benefit of a very healthy coat!
