Organic Canine Flaxseed Oil. Allow your dog to feel the difference.
Q: Is Flax Seed Oil similar to Linseed Oil?
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?

Q: Can dogs digest Flax Seed Oil?
A: Yes it absolutely can…Dogs can digest and utilize the oil very well. Up to 20% of a dog's diet can be made up of fats/oils. The raw whole linseed seed cannot be digested; 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: I feed my dog Hemp Seed Oil; 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, 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, meaning they have not been bleached or deodorised...so you can be sure you are feeding a 100% natural product.
