      Fish Oil & Cancer Risk

      So I've been taking fish oil for about 5 years on advice of a cardiologist. Yesterday he told me no more due to concerns about Prostate Cancer, link below.

      Question is, should I stop giving the dogs fish oil as well?

      If no more what should they get to help with dry itchy skin? Vet suggested fish oil to help with joints. Any thoughts?
