Linseed can be a great addition to the diet for dogs; it can have the same benefits as it does for people. A rich dietary source of insoluble and soluble fibre, lignans and omega-3 with of course a lovely succulent flavour that dogs find palatable. Especially good for the digestion and hormone balance. Good source of omega-3.
Gold linseed. It has the same nutritional properties as the bronze linseed meal but has a slightly milder taste..
Feeding linseed to your dog
Ensure the linseed has absorbed enough liquid and then stir throughout feed.
How much to feed:
- For a medium spaniel-sized dog feed a couple of dessert spoons in usual meals. If your dog is overweight remove a similar weight from of the normal feed from the meal.
- Larger and smaller dogs pro rata.
- Can be fed twice per day
Important: Dogs with sensitive digestions
- For dogs with sensitive digestion introduce very slowly, starting with no more than a small pinch on the first day. Then increase by a pinch or two per day until feeding the normal quantity.
Important: Always ensure dog’s meals are made thoroughly moist when adding linseed.
