Description

Efavet is a popular oil-based supplement for skin support in dogs. Containing Evening Primrose and marine fish oils, along with a carefully selected blend of vitamins and minerals, Efavet promotes healthy skin and glossy coats, and can be given as a general skin health supplement.

330mg Capsules: Recommended dose rate is 1 capsule per day for cats, puppies & small breed dogs

660mg Capsules: Recommended for the initial 3 months treatment for medium & large breed dogs at a dose rate of 1 capsule per 10kg bodyweight.

Efavet Regular: Recommended for long-term maintenance of medium & large breed dogs at a dose rate of 1 capsule per 10kg bodyweight.

Efavet Liquid: Recommended dose rate is 1.5mls per 10kg bodyweight for first 3 months (loading dose), then 0.75mls per 10kg bodyweight for maintenance.

Essential fatty acids are necessary for the development and maintenance of healthy skin and coat in dogs and cats.

Efavet capsules contain balanced levels of essential fatty acids (EFAs) including GLA (an important Omega-6 nutrient) and EPA (an important Omega-3 nutrient), provided by premium quality Evening Primrose Oil and Marine Fish Oil.

Efavet capsules also contain enzyme co-factors in the form of specific minerals and vitamins which may maximise the transformation of EFAs into active metabolites.

Directions:
The edible capsule can be given whole or the capsule content can be mixed with your pets' food. For problem skin we recommend you start with Efavet giving 1 capsule a day for about 4 to 6 weeks. Change to Efavet Regular when the optimum coat condition has been achieved - to help maintain skin and coat in good condition.

Side effects and ingredients

Hi,

Are there any side effects or contraindications please? What are the ingredients beside evening primrose oil and fish oil ?

John Cousins
  • Veterinary Surgeon

Side effects include mild diarrhoea in some individuals when they are first given the product. This is usually self-limiting as the animal's digestion adapts to the increased oil levels in the diet. Most animals show no such reaction, even on larger amounts than normally advised. A tiny number of animals could be expected to be allergic to one of the ingredients, as is the case with almost anything, but this is extremely rare. This is basically a dietary supplement, not a drug, so side effects are not generally an issue at all. The ingredients are listed as:

Evening Primrose Oil 34%, Marine Fish Oil 5.4%, Vitamin A 1.75million IU/kg, Vitamin B1 175 mg/kg, Vitamin B2 436mg/kg, Vitamin B6 19500 mg/kg, Vitamin B12 1.75 mg/kg, Vitamin D 87300 mg/kg, Vitamin E 10500 mg/kg, Biotin 26.2 mg/kg, Folic Acid 34.9 mg/kg, Nicotinic Acid 2180 mg/kg, Pantothenic Acid 1750 mg/kg, Zinc 6020 mg/kg, Copper 873 mg/kg, Magnesium 41900 mg/kg, Selenium 17.5 mg/kg, Calcium 175 mg/kg, plus Gelatin, Glycerol, Coloidal Silicon Dioxide and Soya.

What's the doze for a 30kg dog

What's the doze for a 30kg dog

Danielle Fletcher
  • Category Manager, Own Brand & E-SQP

If your dog is new to Efavet, he will need 3 x 660mg capsules daily for the first three months. For long-term maintenance after this period, he will need 3 x Regular Capsules (550mg) every day.

If you'd prefer to use the liquid, he will need 4.5mls daily for the first 3 months, and 2.25mls for maintenance.

Liquid EFA Omega 3 and 6 Complex.

in one part of the item it says "liquid EFA" BUT in the description section it says Capsule. Which is it ?? And what is the recommended dose for a 29 KG dog??
Thanks Kathryn

Efavet is a liquid oil, but this is available within capsules or as a straight liquid.

A 29kg dog should have 3 capsules per day of Efavet 660 for 3 months, then should go onto 3 capsules daily of Efavet Regular. (The capsules are likely to keep better because being encapsulated helps prevent the oil inside from being affected by oxygen in the air.)
