Animals also benefit from a healthy balance of omega 3, 6 & 9 as well as vitamin E in the body. And Camelina of Sweden’s camelina oil contains more than double the amount of omega 3 as 6 (ap. 38 % omega 3, 18 % omega 6 and 14 % omega 9).
An almost perfect balance that isn’t found naturally in any other oil (2:1)1, and that can contribute to a better balance of omega 3 and 6 in the animal’s diet. The oil also has a high concentration on vitamin E. Regular supplement of vitamin E and essential fats in feed for horses and dogs can have several health benefits on the health and even a positive effect on the animal’s temperament.
CAMELINA FOR HORSES
For horses, supplement with omega 3 can contribute to everything from improved mobility to the quality of the horse’s hooves. Vitamin E is usually given to young and high-performance horses as well as gestating mares to protect from irritation and inflammation and to oxygenate muscles and tissues.
2DOSAGE: Estimate ap. 50–150 ml/day for horses.
CAMELINA OIL FOR DOGS
For dogs, regular supplement with omega 3 not only contributes to a shinier coat and healthier skin. It can also have anti-inflammatory effect, reduce itching and moisture eczema (so called hot spots), but can also have a positive effect on joints and mobility. Vitamin E protects from free radicals in the skin and other cells in the body.
DOSAGE: Estimate ap. 1 tsp/10 kilos of body weight for dog.
Waste from camelina oil production contains a lot of crude protein. It also has unusually high levels of omega 3 and vitamin E (antioxidants). This is a perfect base for 100% organic and nutritious feed for f ex fish, chickens, and cattle4 but it is also as a valuable nutritional asset for both dogs and horses.
This means that the production of camelina oil at By Ranch AB outside Nyköping in Sweden is virtually free from waste, as the remnants can be pressed, degreased and sold as a nutritionally charged ingredient in animal feed – Camelina pellets.
