I recently received an email from a dog lover who was concerned that a bottle of Bonnie & Clyde fish oil would last too longer for her small dog. I can't tell you how long a bottle will last for your dog, but you may be able to get an idea by learning about my experience.
I've been adding Bonnie & Clyde fish oil to our dogs' meals for six months. I switched to Bonnie & Clyde after speaking with the owner and learning about the benefits of using a natural fish oil using human-grade ingredients. I was a little worried about the cost. We have four dogs, and I wasn't sure if I could afford to keep them on a premium-grade fish oil.
I was wrong.
Why I Chose Bonnie & Clyde Fish Oil for Dogs
Before switching to Bonnie & Clyde fish oil, I was using a couple of well-known salmon and pollock oils that I ordered through our local raw food co-op. I switched to Bonnie & Clyde, because instead of using the fish oil sourced for pets, it uses the fish oil that's human-grade. It includes a natural source of vitamin E, instead of synthetic (which is harder to absorb in my dogs' systems). And it doesn't have a strong fishy smell, which surprised me, because Bonnie & Clyde fish oil is more concentrated than salmon, pollock, krill, and cod liver oil.

How Long Does Bonnie & Clyde Fish Oil Last
We're raising four dogs that range in weight between 60 pounds and 80 pounds.
Bonnie & Clyde fish oil lasts longer than other fish oils we've tried because it's so concentrated. I add 2-3 pumps of Bonnie & Clyde fish oil into our dogs' morning meals at least five days a week for four dogs. A 16-ounce bottle of fish oil lasts more than one month (5-6 weeks) when fed to four dogs at least five days a week (I alternate with wild Alaskan salmon oil).
I store unopened bottles of fish oil in the cupboard; opened bottles are stored in the fridge.
Don't want to do the math? Here's a guide from Bonnie & Clyde:
- 40lbs of combined pet bodyweight: 120 days
- 80lbs of combined pet bodyweight: 60 days
- 120lbs of combined pet bodyweight: 40 days
Tips for Feeding Bonnie & Clyde Fish Oil
Bonnie & Clyde fish oil is concentrated and a little goes a long way. I started our dogs off with one pump of fish oil and gradually increased the amount I gave them, paying attention to their poop. Above, I stated that I give the dogs 2-3 pumps of fish oil, here is what each dog receives in their meal:
- Rodrigo – 63 pounds – 2 pumps
- Sydney – 80 pounds – 3 pumps
- Scout – 70 pounds – 2 pumps
- Zoey – 60 pounds – 3 pumps
Although their weight states that they should be consuming three pumps per day, Rodrigo and Scout can only tolerate two pumps; more than that leads to loose stool. Since I alternate with wild Alaskan salmon oil and canned sardines (fresh sardines if I can get them), I believe our dogs are getting a sufficient amount of Omegas in their diet.
Every dog is different, so don't let this be your guide; instead, use my experience as informational only.
