How can my dog benefit from evening primrose oil?
Dogs who suffer from dry, itchy skin can benefit from the soothing effects of evening primrose oil. If your dog has dry, flaky, scaly skin, adding evening primrose oil to the diet is easy to do. As well, inflamed rough spots can be soothed with the properties of evening primrose oil. Essential fatty acids have been known to reduce redness and itching in dogs. Evening primrose oil contains fatty acids found in other foods. These fatty acids can help decrease chronic inflammation. Evening primrose oil can help with conditions such as arthritis for older dogs, as well as the pain and discomfort of dry, itchy skin. With high amounts of natural omega-6 fatty acids, linoleic acid, and gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), evening primrose oil inhibits the body's natural production of the chemicals which generally cause inflammation on the skin as well as in the joints.
This oil is also thought to aid in hormone balance because the supplementation allows for a stabilizing effect in the body. Prostaglandin activity is altered and as a result, the skin and coat benefit.
