    I have flaxseed oil capsules - 1,000mg. Can I use this for the goats and how much? I know it can have a laxative effect so should I be concerned about that?

    I use a ground flax seed one teaspoon per feeding (2x a day) but I imagine about the same maybe a little less for the oil. OIl and ground flax seed are easier to absorb then the whole flax seed.

    I used 1 teaspoonful flax oil in each grain ration for my boys with no bad effects.
