Chia and Flaxseed for Horses

Updated March 26, 2024

In this Ask the Vet video, Dr. Gray and SmartPaker Dan discuss whether or not you should be feeding flaxseed or chia seed to your horse. The short answer is pretty simple (YES!), but the two also explain how to prepare feed with chia or flaxseed, why you would feed these to your horse, how much to give, and how Dr. Gray’s barn handles their flax before feeding time.

SmartPak strongly encourages you to consult your veterinarian regarding specific questions about your horse's health. This information is not intended to diagnose or treat any disease, and is purely educational.
