    ok ive read up on this some and it seems that the virgin or unrefined is the one to get and that is has many health benefits for dogs including for the skin and allergies. hm i may start feeding sarah some but ive started giving her zinc and maybe coq10 so may wait a bit.

    I think coconut oil is fine, and I give it to Ace, I have been taking flax seed for years and it has a good profile on the Omega's plus other benefits such as digestion. I have recently started giving some to Ace and he like it, I have put it on his food or mixed it with yogurt. Of course make sure the flax seed is ground up or cold milled. It doesn't do any good for humans or animals if not ground, the seeds must be crushed

    The problem with that is that vets aren't trained in nutrition. Some vet schools only require 4 credits in nutrition. 4 out of 160 credits is nothing. It amounts to one class during one semester. Most of the studies vets use as their base for data are funded by Hills, this is one of the reasons they push us so hard to use Science Diet.

    To get answers on nutrition, your best bet is to find a nutritionist.
    It starts to melt as soon as you touch it with your hands
