    How much salmon oil?

    Post  mschauer on Sat Feb 28, 2009 8:56 pm

    I'm trying to duplicate the recipe at www.catnutrition.org. It calls for 4000 mg of salmon oil for about 6 lbs of food. I have a bottle of oil, not capsules.

    Does anyone know how many teaspoons of salmon oil equals 4000 mg???

    Well, the SO and I did the math.. 4000mg = 4 g = 0.14 oz

    I think this is also referred to as "a splash"? LOL

    He also says that in order to convert a known mass into a volume, you would need to know the density of the fish oil. Otherwise you're pretty much SOL. Wink

    Yeah, I know I need density to get volume but I don't have that. I think I'll have to buy a bottle of salmon oil capsules and measure the amount that a capsule has. I was hoping someone had already done that.

    Maybe most just use capsules???

    Thanks for the quick response!

    Got it!

    I weighted the contents of the 240 ml bottle. It's 200 grams. That gives 1/2 tsp salmon oil equals 2000 mg.

    Yeah!

    Woohoo! Sorry we couldn't have been more help (and by we, I mean, I asked the SO and he typed the response because Kelly + Math = FIREDEATH!).

    Glad you got it all figured out though. Smile
