Canola Oil is a calorie-dense fat source that can be used to replace grain in the horse’s diet. It provides cool energy for performance horses and supports weight gain in hard keepers.

Canola oil extruded from canola/rapeseed grains can be readily purchased from local grocery stores. It is a cost-effective fat additive for equine diets. It is typically top-dressed or given orally by syringe.

By replacing grains in the diet, canola oil can reduce excitability in horses that are sensitive to high-starch meals. Replacing grains with fat may also reduce the risk of hindgut acidosis, right dorsal colitis, and colic.

Canola oil delivers high amounts of polyunsaturated fatty acids, including omega-3, -6 and -9 fatty acids. It has a higher proportion of linoleic acid (LA), which is an omega-6 fatty acid. Diets that contain excess omega-6’s can have a pro-inflammatory effect.

Performance horses can tolerate high-oil diets to support exercise endurance and recovery. Unlike starch and other carbohydrates, fatty acids are metabolized slowly and used very efficiently in the performance horse’s body.

Canola oil is a sugar-free source of calories for horses with insulin resistance, Equine Metabolic Syndrome (EMS), or Cushing’s/PPID. By replacing grain in the diet, canola oil helps reduce spikes in blood glucose that can be problematic for metabolic horses.

Fat should be added to the diet gradually over a 2- to 3- week period. The total daily feeding rate should be divided into multiple meals. Oils can be introduced at a rate of 30 ml per day and increased to 100 – 200 ml per day based on caloric need.

Fat should not exceed 8% in the total equine diet.
