Camelina Oil from a Holistic Veterinarians Perspective: The Proof is in the Patients!

Written by: Dr. Kim Knock | BSC, DVM

I'm a holistic minded integrative veterinarian who has been practicing animal healing as long as I can remember and as a veterinarian since graduating from Colorado State University in 2002. I have always adopted special needs animals over the years...those that have nowhere else to go.

I'm not against supplementation for my patients, but I am very careful on what we onboard as many of these products do not perform as expected. Some can even derail the healing path by causing additional symptoms to appear (ie - GI issues for example). Thus, I am very careful about what I prescribe. One of my trusted additions for healing and long-term health is camelina oil. I have been using this oil to support my patients, personal animal family members and myself for over 15 years. Currently, in my own household alone I have one fine cat (Clawdine), one silly dog (Silas) and one happy horse (Comanche) who would literally not be here with us today if it weren’t for camelina oil. I use it with nearly virtually every patient and as a key ingredient in my own brand of pet supplements and treats.

Here is how I came to understand the superpowers of this Natural oil. 15 years ago, I met a new patient. She was a sweet older middle aged little cocker spaniel who was extremely stiff and sore and dealing with chronic itching/skin issues as well. I always examine the animals on their level, so I got down on the floor with Sally and waited for her human to join us. Unfortunately, it became clear that Sally’s human was unable to join us due to joint and back pain. I proceeded to work hands on with Sally using chiropractic, myofascial release/tui na and acupuncture and sent them home with a bottle of camelina oil for Sally to use until their next visit about 6 weeks later. Upon their return I was delighted to see Sally arrive with a markedly healthier coat moving much more freely!

I was further surprised and delighted when Sally’s human did not hesitate to join us on the floor. When I asked what had changed, she told me that after seeing Sally’s almost immediate positive response to the camelina oil she began taking it herself and voila! She too was feeling better overall with increased mobility and less pain and stiffness. She was greatly enjoying her newly renewed ability to get down to the floor and back up again. Whenever I witness such a profound response to anything, I take notice. camelina oil had caught my attention and has had it ever since.

You see, as a medical professional I do what I know will provide my patients the best path to recovery and better overall long-term health. This involves many things, but the use of camelina oil is consistent in my practice. Simply put...THE PROOF IS IN THE PATIENTS!! And there have been oh so many with a wide array of issues and conditions whose lives have vastly improved thanks to camelina oil. Smart Earth Camelina produces extraordinary quality oil that I feel good about recommending.

I plan to share stories of more patients and more information with you about the benefits of camelina oil in future posts. Please stand by for more to come!
