Coatex Essential Fatty Acid Supplement

Coatex Essential Fatty Acid Supplement is an diet such as EFAs; as the animal itself is incapable of producing them which allows solutions to dry scaly or itchy skin. 


ESSENTIAL FATTY ACIDS- what are they? EFA's are found in all cell membranes and ensure the correct structure and function of the cell, the primary EFA's are the Omega-6 Linoleic Acid (LA) and its derivative Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA); and the Omega-3 Fatty Acids Alpha Linolenic Acid (ALA) with its derivatives Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA) and Docasahexaenoic Acid (DHA) for good health and well being.

Where do these EFAs come from? Linoleic Acid is found in vegetable oils such as corn and sunflower whereas Alpha Linolenic Acid is most commonly found in flaxseed.

Why use COATEX‚ as opposed to other brands? Coatex‚ contains the most up to date scientific blend and is rich in borage oil which contains almost two and a half times as much GLA as traditional oils such as evening primrose.

When should I use COATEX?  Whenever you see signs of EFA deficiency such as a dull coat or dry scaly and itchy skin and gain advice from your local veterinary surgeon before using product.

How do I administer COATEX? Coatex comes in two forms( highly palatable soft gel capsule or a special liquid pump) which delivers in one measure the same contents as one capsule.

Good product easy to use helps with my 12 year old westies skin complaint


After just four weeks I can see a vast difference in my beautiful girl's coat. Gone has the dry skin - she now has a lovely glossy coat and not a trace of 'dandruff'. Used Coatex on my vet's advice - so glad I did.


Although I have rated this good I would say its neutral. Unfortunately after nearly 3 weeks use I can see no benefit to my dogs skin or coat.

hi - thank you for taking the time to feedback on our service. For orders made before 12 noon we always send out the same day, we are then subject to Royal Mail. In our experience 96% of 2nd class orders arrive in 3 days and 99% of 1st class orders. Where customers do need a guaranteed next day service we also provide a courier service.


I break the capsule and squeeze it over her food. Her coat is soft and really shines She is no longer full of scabby bumps on her skin. She doesn't scratch all the time. She had no fur under her belly. I was shocked when I saw how quick her fur had grown back under her belly. I really recommend the coatex tablets.


Fantastic price and great delivery. Always on time.


As always, an excellent service


It's hard to get my cat to eat these so I have to cut the capsule open, which wastes a bit. But his fur looks better.


Prompt delivery


Doing my dog some good and easy to swallow.


Very happy customer, life threateningly alergic dog, with tricky perscriptions & requests, all met in full & arrived on time all queries answered promptly, no matter how badly worded by a very tired night shift worker.. Highly reccomend!!!
