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: Can Flax Seed Oil be digested by cats, dogs and horses?
A: Yes it absolutely can… Horses are fantastic users of fat in their diets, and are extremely good at coping with high amounts of fat as an energy source. Dogs can digest and utilize the oil too, in fact up to 20% of a dogs diet can be made up of fats/oils. What cannot be digested is the raw whole linseed seed, however when the seeds have been pressed, the oil is left…this is 100% fat, 60% of which is Omega 3, one of the Essential Fatty Acids needed by the body.
Q: What is Flax Seed Flake and what is it good for?
A: After the oil has been cold pressed out of the linseed seed, a flake meal is expelled. Some cold pressing machines expel the meal as a pellet, so you may find flax seed (linseed) pellets in some stores. The Flake is high in protein (approx 33%) and dietary fibre (approx 40%), so is an excellent source of protein with the added benefit of Omega 3 (approx 8%). The Flake can be added to feed to increase the protein and/or dietary fibre content. Many people like to feed the flake to aid muscle growth and development in younger animals, as well as assisting with digestive health. It’s important to always ensure plenty of drinking water is available too.
Q: I currently feed Hemp Seed Oil to my horse, what is the difference between Hemp Seed Oil and Flax Seed Oil?
A: Hemp Seed Oil provides high levels of Omega 6, some of which can be pro-inflammatory if fed in large quantities. Flax Seed Oil provides around 60% Omega 3, which is well documented to have anti-inflammatory properties. All animals require a healthy balance of both of these essential fatty acids, therefore Omega 3 rich Flax Seed Oil is very good in helping to maintain this balance.
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. Flax Seed Oil is palatable and does not require the addition of garlic or other flavourings to mask the taste and smell. 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 animals, and how much should I give them?
A: We suggest you simply pour the oil over their food. We supply plastic taps for our larger containers and the small containers have plastic pourers in the neck of the bottle. We recommend a dose of between 30ml and 150ml per day for horses, and 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!
