January 30, 2009, Newsletter Issue #273: Supplements for Your Dog's Skin and Coat

Tip of the Week

Your dog's skin and coat are tightly linked to his diet and nutrition. Try using homeopathic dietary methods to treat skin conditions and coat problems.

You can use the traditional method of raw eggs on your dog's kibble, but nowadays you have several dog supplements available that can help you better your dog's coat and skin.

Fatty acids are essential to enhance your dog's coat condition and facilitate tissue repair (a big factor in maintaining healthy skin). Salmon oil is an excellent source of fatty acids and oils that will benefit your dog's coat, keep his arteries clear, and strengthen his immune system. Cod liver oil, garlic, soybeans, and crude proteins help promote healthy skin and fur and help prevent excessive shedding.

To keep your dog's coat glossy, add a teaspoon of vegetable oil to your dog's food. Safflower, canola, corn, or soybean oils are options to consider.
