December 8, 2006, Newsletter Issue #162: Dry Skin

Tip of the Week

As the temperatures drop and the heaters come on in homes, the skin tends the dry out. This is true for both dogs and people alike. If your canine is suffering from dry skin, it can usually be attributed to wintertime weather.

In order to remedy the problem, you can do several things. You can bathe your dog only as often as needed to keep her clean. Brush your dog regularly to help remove dead skin. Use a moisturizing shampoo specifically formulated for dogs. And feed her a healthy diet with fatty acid supplements to help keep her coat and skin healthy.

If you notice that your canine scratches excessively or if sores develop, then you have a bigger problem than just dry skin. Take your pooch to the vet right away for an exam.
