Flax Seed for Dogs

Have you ever noticed that your dog’s coat isn’t as shiny as it was when he was a puppy? Perhaps you’ve noticed he’s itching more than he used to. He may even develop uncomfortable-looking hot spots from constant licking or biting. If so, the nutrients in flax seed may benefit your dog immensely.

What to Know About Canine Flax Seed

Flax seed is an excellent source of alpha-linolenic acid, a type of Omega-3 fatty acid. Omega-3 fatty acids are critical for your pet's skin and coat health, and can prevent dry, itchy skin, shedding, and hot spots. If flax seed sounds like something you might have in your pantry, you’re right — flax seed is safe for human consumption. Although whole flax seeds impart a pleasantly nutty flavor, dogs can’t digest them whole so it’s important to use a supplement made specifically for dogs.

Administering flax seed is easy because you can sprinkle our formula right over your dog’s food. It won’t be long before you notice your dog’s coat looking shinier and feeling softer, with hot-spot-free skin underneath. You may also notice your dog moving about a little easier, too, especially if he’s older. Consuming flax seed may also help with joint problems!
