Ask Your Own Question

Does this contain Cod Liver Oil?

23rd Jun 2015
Anne-Marie

My nearly six month old border collie puppy has been suffering from scratching since we got her. We have been to the vets many times and her anal glands have been a bit of an issue, but the main of it now seems to be slightly dry skin and a thick coat. The vet recommended a supplement but warned us against Cod Liver Oil. This product seems a possible product, but am unsure whether it contains Cod Liver Oil.

John Cousins
  • Veterinary Surgeon

Yumega should be very suitable to help in the treatment of your dog and it does not contain cod liver oil. I presume your vet has checked carefully for lice, fleas, mites etc, as these would be a common cause of this problem in such a puppy. They are not always very obvious.

Dog has very itchy skin

19th Jun 2015
Amy

Hi my dog is a staffiture bull terrier, she has very itchy skin and when she itches her fur will come out. Looking for something to help soothe her skin. Tried a lot of things as yet.

John Cousins
  • Veterinary Surgeon

There are loads of possible causes of itchy skin and they have different treatments. First you should be sure there are no fleas around. Diligent flea control for a few months for all pets in the house is needed to be sure. Then a dietary allergy might be involved, or perhaps some other allergy. Your vet will need to advise you on this, as it is not helpful for me to try and guess. Whatever the underlying cause, it would be best to sort that out if possible, rather than just treating the symptoms. However I would say that the oil-based skin supplements such as Yumega can help to condition the skin and reduce itching and are never likely to cause trouble. If you have not tried one already, then Yumega is a good bet.

Is yumega oil suitable for puppies?

John Cousins
  • Veterinary Surgeon

Yumega is suitable for puppies over about 3 months of age, but should be introduced gradually over a week or so. The first dose should be very low and then gradually increased so that the digestion can adapt to it.

Excessive moult dandruff

4th Jan 2015
Carol

I have a 8 year old chocolate labrador that has been moulting quite a lot I have tried groming and brushing out the excess fur this only seems to bring dandruff like scurf to the surface of the fur, do you think this product will help this condition or can you recommend anything else, he is fed mainly on dry kibble.

John Cousins
  • Veterinary Surgeon

Yumega should be very suitable for your dog. Regular grooming is also a good idea but the Yumega should help with the overall skin condition and health. If your labrador is overweight, it would be better to reduce the amount of food you give at the same time, as Yumega is high in calories.

Dog moults most of the year

30th Nov 2014
Marilyn

My dog has a double fur coat and it is very thick and he moults continuously. I have been advised to give him omega oil for this condition. Have you any knowledge on yumega oil for this condition?

John Cousins
  • Veterinary Surgeon

Yumega is very good at helping the skin and coat of many dogs. It can improve the overall condition and health of the skin and improve the texture and appearance of the coat. This may or may not apply to your individual dog, depending partly on the current health of his skin and the nutritional make-up of his current diet. Some dogs do have a very dense, "double" coat and they will have to moult this out periodically. It should not normally be continuous though. I would certainly try the Yumega as it is likely to improve things, but you might well have to groom your dog regularly too. At least that way, the loose hair comes out on the comb/brush and is not shed around the house.

Arthritis

19th Jul 2014
Jenny Pike

Yumega 3/6 Plus has been recommended by a vet for my elderly cat's arthritis. Is this the right product as it only mentions skin complaints?

John Cousins
  • Veterinary Surgeon

It is widely believed that some oil supplements might help with artritis, though this has no scientific basis in most instances. Yumega comes from the same company who make Yumove which as you imply might be a lot better. It is made specifically to help with mobility issues and it is the product I personally would recommend for your cat. It has very different ingredients.

JOANNE SIMONS

Can you give Yumega to a cat with Hypercalciemia who has a dry skin that shows up in fur. Thanks

John Cousins
  • Veterinary Surgeon

AS a symptomatic treatment for the dry skin, Yumega should be helpful. However feline hypercalcaemia can be an odd condition which is difficult to explain or treat directly. There might be other consequences of raised calcium levels (especially urinary bladder stones) so you should watch out for signs of these. Yumega should be neutral regarding these other possible consequences.

Use on 5/6 month puppy

15th Jul 2014
Jacqui

Hello,

I have a French Bulldog puppy 5-6 months old and she has very itchy dry skin, can I use yumega plus on her at this age? and is it the right product to help stimulate oils in the skin?

Thank you

John Cousins
  • Veterinary Surgeon

This should be a suitable product and can be used at this age. Ideally though you should start off with a low dose and take 10 days or so to build up to the normal dose. This way it will be less likely to have any effect on her digestion.

Yumega Plus

23rd Jun 2014
Marisa Clarkson

My dog Molly is a 4 year old shih tzu who has problems with her anal glands, licking and scratching. The vet has prescribed
Apoquel 5.4mg which she takes half of each day. She still licks but not as bad as before. I was wondering if Yumega Plus would also benefit her and if it is safe as she is on these tablets long-term.

Kind regards

Marisa Clarkson

John Cousins
  • Veterinary Surgeon

Yumega Plus is certainly safe to give with Apoquel and for long-term if needed. It might well help with this problem, so it is worth a try.

How is this product given to dogs?

Linda Jarrett
  • VioVet Customer Since: October 2013
  • From: Greater Manchester, United Kingdom

My dog is 34 kgs. Is it tablets or poured over his food in liquid form?

  • Product Management Team

A 34kg dog would require 10 - 15ml of the liquid mixed into their main meal per day. This should be halved for the first week to gradually introduce it to their diet.
