This prospective study involved supplementing 18 normal dogs with flax seed (FLX) and sunflower seed (SUN) and evaluating their effects on skin and hair coat condition scores and serum polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) concentrations. Skin and hair coat were evaluated in a double-blinded fashion using a numeric scoring system and serum PUFA concentrations were determined. Our hypothesis was that changes in serum PUFA concentrations are associated with improvements in skin and hair coat and… Expand
Effect of dietary polyunsaturated fatty acid and related nutrients on plasma lipids, and skin and hair coat condition in canines
Effect of Dietary Polyunsaturated Fatty Acid and Related Nutrients on Plasma Lipids, and Skin and Hair Coat Condition in Canines. (August 2004) Shaleah Lynnae Hester, B.S., Texas A&M University ChairExpand
Skin surface lipids and skin and hair coat condition in dogs fed increased total fat diets containing polyunsaturated fatty acids.
TLDR
Skin and hair coat condition improvements may be related to increased cholesteryl ester deposited on the hair shaft surface when high fat diets are fed, and hair lipid analysis may be a useful, non-invasive technique with which to help assess dietary effects on canine SHC. Expand
Plasma and skin concentrations of polyunsaturated fatty acids before and after supplementation with n-3 fatty acids in dogs with atopic dermatitis.
TLDR
Results indicated that at the dose used, neither the concentrations of fatty acids in skin or plasma nor a decrease in the production of inflammatory eicosanoids was a major factor involved in the mechanism of action in dogs with atopy that responded to fatty acid supplementation. Expand
Canine plasma and tissue fatty acid profiles and their correlation with hair coat conditions
TLDR
The importance of n-3 and n-6 fatty acids to the hair coat condition of dogs kept under humid tropical conditions is underscores the importance of fatty acid profiles from other tissues. Expand
Therapeutic Relevance of Dietary Ratio of Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids N-6: N-3 in Canine Atopic Dermatitis
Canine atopic dermatitis (CAD) is an allergic skin condition in dogs characterized by degradation of the skin barrier function and pro-inflammatory responses triggered by injured skin cells.Expand
Effect of Linseed (Linum usitatissimum) Groats-Based Mixed Feed Supplements on Diet Nutrient Digestibility and Blood Parameters of Horses
TLDR
It is concluded that linseed by-products combined with other fibre sources can be safely used in feeding strategies replacing grains in the horses’ rations in order to reduce the intake of starch and improve the crude protein and fat digestibility of hay-oats diets of horses. Expand
Review on the beneficial effects of omega-3 enriched eggs by dietary flaxseed oil supplementation
TLDR
Omega-3 enrichment of eggs with ALA rich flaxseed oil is an effective way for better decision making in preventive and therapeutic health care, as well as in agriculture and food industries. Expand
Dietary fats and the skin and coat of dogs.
TLDR
Dietary EFAs ensure fluidity of membranes, helps maintain the cutaneous water permeability barrier, and supplies fatty acid precursors of eicosanoids and other important physiologic mediators for cell function, all of which contribute in some manner to health of the skin and coat. Expand
Some commonly fed herbs and other functional foods in equine nutrition: a review.
TLDR
Common supplements like Echinacea, garlic, ginger, ginseng, and yucca are not regulated, and few studies have investigated safe, efficacious doses. Expand
Fatty acid composition of serum lipids in atopic and healthy dogs.
TLDR
Differences in the serum fatty acid pattern indicating a reduction in desaturase activity were not detected in atopic dogs when compared with controls, and their beneficial effects are documented in several prospective, controlled studies. Expand

Double‐blinded Crossover Study with Marine Oil Supplementation Containing High‐dose icosapentaenoic Acid for the Treatment of Canine Pruritic Skin Disease*
TLDR
This study demonstrates the effectiveness of high doses of marine oil as an alternative anti-inflammatory for canine pruritic skin disease with significant improvement in pruritus, self-trauma, and coat character over time. Expand
Molecular species of cholesteryl esters formed via plasma lecithin:cholesterol acyltransferase in fish oil supplemented dogs
TLDR
While both EPA and DHA are suitable substrates for CE formation, relatively lower amounts of plasma CE-DHA compared to the LCAT derived CE- DHA indicates that this fatty acid may be selectively taken up by the tissues compared to CE-EPA and AA. Expand
The effects of varying dietary n-6 to n-3 fatty acid ratios on platelet reactivity, coagulation screening assays, and antithrombin III activity in dogs.
TLDR
Small changes were observed in adenosine diphosphate (ADP)-, collagen-, and arachidonic acid-induced platelet aggregation and 14C-serotonin release, fibrinogen concentrations, and antithrombin III activities during the 12-week study, but these changes were not of clinical significance and did not correlate with the varying ratios of n-6 to n-3 fatty acids.

A simple method for the isolation and purification of total lipides from animal tissues.
TLDR
A simplified version of the method for the preparation and purification of brain lipides has the advantage of being simpler, of being applicable to any scale desired, of substantially decreasing the losses of lipides incidental to the washing process, and of yielding a washed extract which can be taken to dryness without foaming and without splitting of the proteolipides.
