Even the caveats given by the seafood company are notable, though. Dr. Esselstyn's very low fat vegan diet (used to prevent and reverse heart disease) does have folks adding 1 T of ground flaxseed to their diet, and since they are not having additional nuts or oils it does accomodate the caveat raised about needing to limit omega-6 fatty acids. No problem. Agreed.
Both my naturapathic physician and my internist are convinced I need to be taking fish oil, so I am looking forward to sharing this article with them. It will interest them, if not convince them.
Please make sure that none of your shampoos or soaps in the house contain sodium lauryl (or laureth) sulfate. This is rampant in our household products and is a known skin irritant (google it). I was able to clear up my issues by changing diet AND this (and by eliminating chemical sunscreens, using mineral sunscreens instead).
I also use almond oil as a moisturizer on a regular basis.
Great video! I'm so happy for you all. I'd like to recommend "clicker training" as a great method for training Penny -- it uses positive reinforcement and the click serves as a wonderful signal to let her understand exactly what she did right that earned a reward. To learn more about this wonderful method, go to www.dogtrainingwithdiane.com and www.clickertraining.com
(And I'm a former Irish Setter owner myself, and a volunteer for Irish Setter rescue! Love them!)

What an absolutely beautiful story.
Am coming into this conversation very late, but here goes. My question is, are the animals adopted converted to vegan diets including this one? I cannot reconcile my thirty year vegan idealogy to pet owning although I've owned three. One dog and three cats - all rescued and all of them vegan. My adorable Dal passed away two years ago after thirteen years vegan (one year was typical commercial dog diet by the puppymill). My two cats have also since passed but both lived long and good lives on vegan cat food. It can be done. It's pricey and labor consumptive, but we enslaved these animals thousands of years ago and now our urban areas are overrun with thousands of unwanted animals, breeding and dying in awful circumstances. We can't allow ouselves hypocrisy by preaching veganism if we own animals who are tied to the suffering of the slaughterhouse industry.
