I just got my hedgie about a week ago and now he's starting to scratch a little so I added some flax seed oil to his food for the last two days but I'm wondering how often should I be adding the flax seed oil? should it be daily, weekly, bi weekly?
When I started giving Lily flaxseed oil, her skin was pretty dry, so I added a capsule to her food once every three days. This was also during the winter time, when the air is a bit drier and makes her skin even more dry. Once her skin got a bit better and the weather became a bit more humid, I backed down to one capsule a week.
