Depends on what kind of oils you're talking about, how you're using them, and what you're using them for.

That's what I was going to say.  Also, is your fur-baby canine or feline?  Felines can't metabolize medium-chain fatty acids like coconut oil, but dogs might be okay with it.  DeeDee is our resident dog expert.

Basically, if you give a good fish oil, something like Nordic Naturals salmon oil, that has a lot of Omega 3s, that's better than a vegetable oil.  Omega 3s are anti-inflammatory.

I hope this helps, and welcome!   :)
