Is it any good? What does it do and how do I administer it? Thank you! (: :smileyrat: :love:

Linseed oil or flax oil, just make sure it is the edible kind as crude linseed oil is also sold in DIY. See this link for info about it http://www.herbwisdom.com/herb-flaxseed-oil.html

I drizzle small amounts over my rats dinner.

Yup, I just add a dollop on fresh food a couple of times a week too :) Best value for money is probably getting some marketed at horses (if you have a lot of rats). Or alternatively RatRations sell it in 100ml bottles which last for maybe 6-8 months with 6 rats in my experience.

with the ratlings: Orbit, Lanorial, Amdridh, Arkiadera, Esker, Brie, Larka and Foxtrot. Also Anfreda the hamsterling.

Good for shiny coats, metabolism and in age helps with joints!
We give it to all our rats in their wet food on an evening :)
Like acapae_wolf says you can buy big bottles, from either health food stores so you can have some :wink: or from Rat Rations :luck:
