Our Flax Seed Oil for cats comes in a 150ml bottle, which is roughly a 2 month supply. For palatability, we have either a crab flavour or liver flavour available. We recommend you choose your flavour based on whether your cat eats a meat-based or fish-based diet. Use the drop-down menu at the top to choose which is best for your cat.
Delivery is included in the cost of the product and takes 2-5 working days (RD addresses can incur further delays). If delivery is to an RD address, please select this option when ordering. This will incur an extra $5 charge.
Adding just 1ml per 2kg of body weight to the everyday feed is recommended, although this can be increased over time if desired results are not seen.
Once opened, to maintain the quality and freshness of the oil, keep refrigerated and use within 3 months.
A: Yes, both Flax Seed Oil and Linseed Oil come from the linseed seed, it is just a difference in terminology…. Linseed Oil is the name given to industrial grade oil (the kind you find in hardware stores to stain wood) and Flax Seed Oil is the term used for food grade oil. Our oils meet food grade standards, hence it is termed Flax Seed Oil.
Q: What is unique about ProVida Flax Seed Oil?
A: The Canterbury Plains are offers optimal growing conditions for high quality raw material. We are proud to be based in Mid-Canterbury at the arable heart of New Zealand. Our flax seed products are all cold-pressed in small batches using the highest quality seed grown for us by local contracted farmers in our region. All flax seed products we offer are traceable back to their origin, and produced to human food grade standards using no chemicals, solvents or heat in the extraction process.
Q: Which flavour is the most palatable?
A: Both flavours are actually equally is possible. What we recommend is for you choose the flavour based on whether your cat eats a meat-based or fish-based diet. If you feed your cat meat-based foods then opt for the Liver flavour, or if your cat likes fish-based foods then opt for the Crab flavour. This way, the flavour of oil you are choosing will be complemented by the food they eat, and the flavours will be similar.
Q: Why should I use ProVida Flax Seed Oil instead of fish oils?
A: ProVida Flax Seed Oil is a natural, cold pressed, plant derived oil containing approximately 60% Omega 3, which is a significantly higher percentage than fish oils. Our Flax Seed Oils are pure and unrefined, which means they have not been bleached or deodorised...so you can be sure that you are feeding a 100% natural product.
Q: What is the best way of feeding the oil to my cat, and how much should I give them?
A: We suggest you simply pour the oil over their food. We recommend a dose of 1ml per 2kg of body weight per day for dogs and cats. Depending on the results you wish to achieve and the condition and size of the animal, you may wish to alter these measurements and feed slightly more. Continuity is the key, so make sure you feed the oil every day!
