Hello and thanks for researching this very important question!
Flaxseed oil can be used as a source of fatty acids in dogs. You can try 250 mg for each 50 pounds of weight.
Just as in people, these oil supplements have been known to cause digestive upset, so be on the alert for signs of indigestion or softened stool.
Dogs can develop a number of skin conditions that may be related to other health problems in the body (allergies or other immune dysfunction, for example), so if you do not see an improvement within 2-3 weeks, consider having this dear pet examined by a veterinarian who can help you find out what to do next.
