Flax seed oil is rich in Omega 3 and 6 Essential Fatty Acids. Linolenic acid, the type of omega-3 fatty acid found in plants, is similar to the omega-3 fatty acids that are in fish oil (EPA and DHA). It can be converted into EPA and DHA in the body and is highly concentrated in flax seed oil.

This process helps to maintain the levels of protective, anti-oxidant nutrients and free fatty acids in the oil. There are numerous health benefits of supplementation with flax seed oil for pets.

Flaxseed Oil, Rosemary
I got Baxter from the shelter, and he had horrible allergies. I changed his diet to Solid Gold adult food, and it seemed to help, but the dry patches never completely healed. I got one of their catalogs and read about Sea Meal and their flax seed oil and decided to try them. Within a couple of months, his skin was ccompletely healed, and his coat is beautiful. Everone comments on how soft and shiny it is.
