Hemp Oil

Question:
Subject: thoughts about the use of hemp oil for cats?

Dear folks at Wysong, as part of an essential fatty acid rotation in a Wysong and raw food based diet for cats. I noticed that hemp oil is not included among the other high omega 3 and omega 6 oils in your EFA feline supplement. I have been using krill oil for my cats and am adding pumpkin seed oil and flax oil for more variety. I was also going to add hemp oil into the rotation, but thought I'd ask you guys about it first. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks very much!

Answer:
We are impressed with hemp seeds and are incorporating them into some of our human products. Used in variety, hemp oil is an excellent supplement.

Question:
Thanks for writing back. I was interested in whether hemp seed oil is safe as a feline supplement (not as a human supplement). There's no commentary on the Wysong website, that I could find, that speaks to the issue, so I thought I'd just ask you folks directly.

Answer:
Yes, you can feed hemp seed oil to pets. The biological properties of the oil are beneficial to both pets and people. But follow the principles in the Optimal Health Program.
