I am considering adding Chia seeds to my dogs diet. Just wondered if anyone has ever given them and if they ground them or soaked them and if they soaked them for how long?
Reason for adding is to add an alternative source of omega fatty acids as both dogs could do with helping skin and coat as well as helping immune system. Also thinking on fibre basis as Phoebe can occasionally have anal gland issues so anything that might help her keep emptying them regularly would be good.
All my stomach problems started when i started having chia seeds every day, may have been just coincidence, but then learned about the intestines having little pockets seeds could get trapped in and irritate causing diverticulitus , could this happen to dogs ? Just a thought caz2golden have you tried GROUND FLAX Seeds for helping with bowel movements ?
caz2golden: Why is it when you look back on something you wish you had done things differently. Came across a road accident on way home from work tonight wished I had been more proactive!

caz2golden: Scallywag, I did help but wish I had followed my gut feeling and stopped people doing things! I think the motorcyclist will be ok! Guess I will never know though!

scallywag: Will it be in the local paper or was it miles from home ?

caz2golden: It was not in local rag as far as I can tell.

caz2golden: Sorry not on much my PC is sending me around the bend every time I use mouse it double clicks when I only single clicked! Part of me is hoping it is a windows issue that will get updated rather than just PC getting old and broken!

alfiemummy: It's most likely your mouse that needs replacing Caz - that's happened to me twice now and both times it's been fixed by getting a new mouse
