It's brilliant! His dry skin disappeared within days of using it I recommend it highly! Even using it on the dog now

I'm so glad it worked so well for you!

This is exactly the same as what I experienced - it really was kind of a miracle cure, haha. It took about 3-4 days total for his dry skin to be completely gone. We're now spraying Archimedes with it about once a week to prevent the dry skin from coming back, and so far so good! It's such a relief after using flaxseed oil for so long with pretty much no improvement from that.

Hi, lily has been on a diet (a mix of hills science plan and James Wellbeloved senior with live mealworm and cooked chicken as treats) and it has been a huge success. However, she has started to get dry skin. I want to try flaxseed oil to see if this helps and was wondering if there are any preferred brands to use? Is it better for her to ingest it or wear it?

You can do both. There's no preferred brand, just make sure there are no additives. Using a kind that comes in capsule form, rather than a bottle of liquid, will last longer; the liquid kind goes bad a certain amount of time after you open it, whereas the capsules can theoretically last for years. You just puncture one with a needle, dribble some on the back (parting the quills if she'll let you so it can get to the skin better) and some on the food.

Had to drag this thread up because I just ordered some humilac to try and ease P.B.'s dry skin (we already put flax on her food and use a humidifier). Do you use this spray daily initially? Just a few spritzes or so? Thanks in advance for the help.

This thread is from a few years ago, please try to double check dates before posting! Most of the people on this post aren't on the forum anymore.

But to answer your question, Humilac has been discontinued by the manufacturer, so I'm not sure it can be bought anymore, unfortunately.
