A highly beneficial alternative source of omega fatty acids for dogs!
What is hemp seed oil?
It is an exceptionally rich oil high in essential omega fatty acids and proteins, it has a nutty flavor and is deep green in color. The oil does not contain any detectable Delta-9-Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC. Hemp is NOT marijuana). The green color in hemp seed oil is a result of the high level of chlorophyll which is naturally present in the seeds. There are a lot of health benefits to chlorophyll as well, but that is a topic for another article!
Hemp seed oil is considered to be the most nutritional oils available and is easily digestible in its raw state. It contains less than 10% saturated fats, and 70-80% polyunsaturated fatty acids. This is an unusually high level of the good oils, making this oil beneficial for consumption.
The benefit to dogs comes from the exceptional 3:1 balance of essential omega fatty acids. Hemp seed oil is a source of Omega 6 (linoleic acid), Omega 3 (linolenic acid), Omega 9 (oleic acid), GLA (gamma linolenic acid) and steridonic acid.
Organic, cold-pressed hemp seed oil is the type you want to use!
How do I feed hemp seed oil to my dog?
Hemp seed oil is a highly nutritional oil to add to your dog’s diet, but if you want to receive the maximum benefits of omega fatty acids it is ideal to pair this oil with two others: coconut oil and fish oils (or other omega fatty acids). The combination of these three oils makes for a highly nutritional boost to the skin, coat, immune system and so much more!
There is a product that does it all, called Sh-Emp Oil, and it is a product I have used and recommended for a few years now. It is a good option for those who like the convenience of an easy to use supplement and prefer to know that the oils are already properly balanced without having to do any calculations.
For those who would prefer to do it themselves, a teaspoon a day for a large dog and half a teaspoon for a smaller dog would be sufficient. Pair this with coconut oil and omega fatty acids, and your dog will enjoy the tremendous benefits of having healthy oils in their diet!
