Are there recommendations for how much ground flax seed could be given per pound of dog?

Vet recommended 1 fish oil pill per day but didn't have any recommendations for ground flax. I know it can loosen stools so don't want to give too much. Was thinking of just adding 1/4 t. to start right on her dry food (we also add water to it to help slow Mocha's eating). Anyone seen any vet's recommendations on amt of ground flax seed per dog weight? I can't seem to find anything on the internet....
