CEN Oil is highly palatable & digestible with a low daily feed rate, making it a cost-effective addition to the diet. CEN Oil also provides a cool source of calories that helps support calm behaviour.
The Omega profile of CEN Oil helps in the reduction of inflammation in your dog from normal activity, this may lead to less irritation particularly in skin conditions and a better quality of life.
HOW DOES CEN OIL BENEFIT YOUR DOG?
SKIN & COAT HEALTH
If your dog suffers from a dry or very dull coat, Omega 3 can help to improve the texture of their coat, making for fuller, shinier hair. A dull coat is often a sign of other health problems like a weakened immune system. CEN Oil can ensure that the lipid barriers of a dog’s skin are sufficient. When the barriers are reduced, the dog’s natural coat oils get depleted, your dog may run a higher risk of developing skin conditions, especially if they are scratching/itching excessively.
IMMUNE SYSTEM HEALTH
There is an importance of having the proper ratios of Omega 3 and Omega 6 consumed by your dog in order to reap the full health benefits. Research suggests that dogs that suffer from autoimmune, allergic, or inflammatory health conditions can benefit from increasing their dietary Omega 3 levels.
The anti-inflammatory properties of essential fatty acids (Omega 3) that aid your dog fighting off skin irritants can also help your dog’s joints and range of mobility, especially in dog’s that suffer from conditions like canine arthritis.
WHY CEN OIL IS MORE EFFECTIVE THAN OTHER OIL FOR DOGS?
CEN Oil is the best oil choice for horses due to the high Omega 3 levels. Most oils contain Omega 6 and 9 but low Omega 3 (coconut oil contains no Omega 3 and is mainly saturated fat).
There are many oils available on the market with an unnatural Omega profile, having higher levels of Omega 6 to Omega 3.
“Omega 3s block the formation of inflammatory molecules that are readily formed from Omega 6’s. Take a close look at the fat sources you are feeding to confirm that enough Omega 3’s are in the diet.”
The Omega profile of CEN Oil helps in the reduction of inflammation in your dog from normal activity, this may lead to less irritation particularly in skin conditions and a better quality of life. CEN Oil provides high levels of Omega 3 which are highly beneficial for all dogs.
In this podcast, Peter and Bryan discuss the details of CEN Oil for dogs and the huge benefits for dog health.

The National Research Council recommends up to 440 mg/kg bodyweight of Omega 3 ALA can be safely fed daily to your dog. (5) Higher amounts of dietary Omega 3 ALA, as well as decreased Omega 6 LA, resulted in increased conversion of ALA to EPA, DPA and DHA. (1,2) Eicosanoids are hormone-like substances that affect inflammation. They are produced from both ALA (less inflammatory) and LA (mostly pro-inflammatory). CEN Oil can help to improve dietary Omega 3 to Omega 6 to a less inflammatory profile. Dog diets that are high in Omega 6 LA and low in Omega 3 ALA drive the eicosanoid production towards a more inflammatory profile.
Studies have demonstrated that when dogs were fed a diet containing linseed providing 10.1% of total fatty acids from ALA, the plasma levels of EPA and DPA increased quickly, further studies have found that DPA is the main ALA metabolite in cell membranes of many animals, and as such it may be an important reservoir for either EPA or DHA synthesis. (3,6) Dogs have been shown to be able to convert DPA to DHA in the retina and presumably other nervous system tissues. (4)

Yes. When they are on solid food or kibble.
Yes, CEN Oil can be stored in the fridge or room temperature depending on preference. The stability of the Omega 3 is enhanced in the fridge.
Keep out of direct sunlight and avoid temperatures above 30 degrees.
Once you work out the feeding rate for your dog (1mL per 2kg), start off at half the feed rate for the first 5 days for their system to get used to. Too much too soon can cause softer faeces or diarrhoea.
