AND ITS 100% ALL NATURAL!!! Would you believe me?

Probably not, Right?

Well, you most definitely should!!!!

 

WHAT IS WHEAT GERM OIL?

Wheat germ oil

Wheat germ oil is extracted from the germ of the wheat kernel, which makes up only 2.5% by weight of the kernel [1] Wheat germ oil is particularly high in octacosanol– a 28-carbon long-chain saturated primary alcohol found in a number of different vegetable waxes.[2] Octacosanol has been studied as an exercise- and physical performance-enhancing agent. Very long-chain fatty alcohols obtained from plant waxes and beeswax have been reported to lower plasma cholesterol in humans.[3] Wheat germ oil is also very high in vitamin E (255 mg/100g), and has the highest content of vitamin E of any food that has not undergone prior preparation or vitamin fortification.[4] As a cooking oil, wheat germ oil is strongly flavored, expensive and easily perishable.[1]Wheat germ oil contains the following fatty acids:[5][6]

Componentg/100g
Linoleic acid (omega-6)55
Palmitic acid16
Oleic acid14
Linolenic acid (omega-3)7

Other uses of wheat germ oil have also been explored, including increasing blood flow and reaction time.[7] Further uses include treatment of certain skin conditions such as scarring and inflammation.[8]

WHAT DOES IT DO??

A great way to add essential vitamins and fatty acids to your dogs diet is with Wheat Germ Oil. According to https://www.revivalanimal.com/product/wheat-germ-oil-blend/all-dog-and-cat-supplies:

  • Wheat Germ Oil Blend is one of the richest natural sources of fatty acids and Vitamins A, D & E
  • Supports normal physical and mental performance
  • Promotes a shiny and healthy coat
  • For horses of all classes and dogs of all ages

We started using Wheat Germ Oil years ago, and honestly, I must say its one of the TOP TEN MUST HAVE PRODUCTS that we think should be in EVERY BREEDING PROGRAM!

Most Wheat germ oil on the market come in a variety of sizes.

I highly recommend you save yourself some $$$$$$ by buying your Wheat Germ Oil by the gallon. WE DO!!

HOW DO I USE IT?

Like any supplement out there, always follow the directions stated on the bottle or container for the proper dosage for your dog’s weight!!!

We buy our wheat germ oil in 1-gallon jugs and put it on our dog’s kibble every morning. IT’S SUPER SIMPLE!!!

I promise you, I’m NEVER going to miss the dull and flaky days. and I can BET my dogs won’t either

AS A RESULT, We have seen a DRASTIC improvement in their skin and coats. For example, We have seen less shedding, less dry skin flaking, softer fur, and shinier coats.

 

ANOTHER AMAZING BENEFIT OF WHEAT GERM OIL

According to https://www.victoriahealth.com/product/Wheatgerm-Oil-Liquid/8980, another benefit is increased fertility. I was told this, many years ago by one of my mentors in the breeding world and I have heard the fertility factor repeated in several blogs and social media posts by other breeders. ??

 

THAT’S RIGHT!!  FIRST, Not only does Wheat Germ Oil have some of the richest natural sources of fatty acids and Vitamins A, D & E. SECOND, it supports normal physical and mental performance. THIRD, Promotes a shiny and healthy coat and fur, helps stop the shedding and solves the dry itchy skin…BUT IT CAN ALSO HELP WITH MORE SUCCESSFUL BREEDINGS!!!!!

TAKE MY MONEY!!!!

 

I WANT IT!!!! BUT THERE’S SO MANY OPTIONS

Did you really think I was gonna leave you hanging like that???

There are several brands of Wheat Germ Oil and unfortunately, I haven’t tried them all myself (nor would I want to put my dog’s belly through that).

But Fortunately enough for you, throughout our community, We have been able to try several and well there all pretty dang good. But the winner of the bunch would have to be AniMed Wheat Germ Oil Blend!!!!
