Default Flaxseed oil?

How do I apply this and how much? Bella has dry skin but the vet said it's not mites. I gave her a oatmill bath but it's not doing much good. I got flaxseed oil caps.

You can apply it directly to her skin in the bath, or drip it onto her food. Just poke it with a needle and squeeze it out.

Do I have to give her a bath to put it on her skin?

Usually that works best, because the excess oil just washes off. The water also helps spread it around the skin.
