As you will know I have two dogs. Who have been helping me on my latest review, of Actif Pets Flaxseed Oil for dogs. Which is a must read for all you dog lovers out there.
My review team
Meet my boys Max is an Alaskan Malamute (this is when he was younger) and Bear a German Shepherd the hardest dog to take a photo of.
I was interested to try the Flaxseed oil on both my dogs for different reasons. They both eat a good diet, although very different. But Max is getting older now and starting to stiffen up a bit. And Bear has allergies that makes him itchy. So was intrigued to see if this oil would benefit one or both of them.
Actif Pets Flaxseed Oil for Dogs, claims to be rich in Omega 3,6 and 9 for dry, itchy skin/coat, and a natural dog supplement for stiff bones, joints and hips. Both of which I could monitor on my boys. On reading more about the oil before I started using it I read
- flaxseed Oil has excellent health benefits as it helps to calm sensitive skin, reduce itching, excessive moulting and maintain a dog’s skin and coat condition.
- Aids palatability of dry dog food and treats
- Helps support the immune system and mobility
- Is high in Omega 3& 6 which helps with brain development and supports the dogs joints and hips
I went onto Amazon and ordered the Flaxseed Oil,which arrived the next day and started to use it on my dogs. You get a guide on how much to give your dog depending on size and to introduce slowly.
We have been using the oil for a week now, and already I have noticed improvements in both my dogs Max seems to be carrying on like he was a 6 month old puppy so has helped his stiffness. As for Bear we have not really noticed him itching. But for me the real winner is the moulting which is a nightmare at the moment, especially as Mals have two coats.
