Flax Seed Oil for Dogs and Cats
Botanical / INCI name (EU) - Linum Usitatissimum
Flaxseed oil, also called linseed oil, is made from pressing the seeds of the flax plant, a cultivated crop grown in cooler climates. Flaxseed oil is pretty much the opposite of hempseed oil in its Linoleic Acid (LA) and Alpha-Linolenic Acid (ALA) fatty acid composition.
The majority of flaxseed oil (about 57 percent) is made up of ALA — more than any other oil commonly consumed in North America. In contrast, only about 16 percent of flaxseed oil is made up of LA.
Unlike hemp, flaxseed oil is perfect for balancing the fats in poultry-based diets, such as chicken and turkey, which contain naturally high levels of LA. Flaxseed oil gives poultry a nice boost of omega-3s in the form of ALA while avoiding adding excess omega- 6s in the form of LA. Flaxseed oil spoils quickly, so store in a dark container in the refrigerator.
Flaxseed oil acts as a blood thinner, so avoid in dogs prone to bleeding, and discontinue use well in advance of any surgical procedure, including dental cleanings.
