Do you recommend Flaxseed in a raw diet? If so, do you carry a product you recommend? I can’t seem to find it on your site?
Thank you, Debra

Thank you for your inquiry to Holistic Pet Info. Flax seed is primarily used as a supplement for its Omega 3 benefits. You may offer it with a raw diet but it’s much more digestible in milled form than whole seed. You can find it at your local health food store.
If you are offering it for Omega 3 properties (anti-inflammatory and immune support) you may want to consider fish oil instead. It has higher levels of Omega 3s and is more palatable than flax seed. I recommend Animal Essentials Fish Oil or Super EPA.
Please keep in mind if you are preparing a raw diet that it is balanced with calcium, vitamin and mineral supplements. Best of luck.
