So yesterday as I opened the bottle to add one to Sammi's dinner a memory came back to me, a conversation with the excellent Vet Jill Hubbard. She recommended I try it for Kiri as it was excellent for coat and skin condition. I remembered the conversation so well .. so why in over a decade had I not thought of it? Why had I probably paid hundreds of pounds on potions and concoctions from Dorwest and Yumega when the answer was probably far cheaper and on my doorstep? Anyway I did decide to google it and make sure I'd remembered it correctly .. yes I had .. just a few recommendations ...
Even Dorwest herbs themselves recommend "this preparation for show dogs, those breeds with long coats and after a moult or other conditions causing hair loss." (1 x 500mgs per 10kg of body weight)
"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."
So yeah, a bit of information from deep in my damaged brain has been recovered ... I don't think my pot of 90 will last me long so it's back to Home bargains to stock up next time I'm in town!
