Our new pup, Coal, has very dry skin...especially on his legs where the fur has fallen out and on his belly. Is there anything I can use on his skin or a supplement that will help him out? Thanks in advance!

Sometimes just all you need is time on your hand once they get I to a home environment. EFAs are a good supplement but, start slow-they tend to loosen stools if you don't ease intoo them. I best thing I found, however, is topical treatments--aka bathing and conditioning. If you bath your hound please only use shampoo for dogs as it has the proper ph.

I've had better results with coconut oil than fish oil. And I have recently become a huge fan of Fresh Factors. My two girls have never been so soft and shiny. I saw a difference within 3 weeks. Last weekend I had them at a meet and greet and everyone commented on how soft and shiny Princess was. Carly was also soft and shiny, but she's antisocial and was hiding, so no one got to feel her luxuriously soft coat. :rolleyes:

Fish oil, but just being in a home may cause him to improve. What color is he? The dark hounds are stunning, but they show the flaky skin a lot more while you're sorting things out.

He is a black beauty, but you are right, you can see every little flake! He has these patches on both legs that look like peeling dry skin.... I'll have to look into some of these things! Thanks for the advice guys!

We used Hair of the Dog in the past. It gave us great results with Bee Wiseman, who had dry, flakey skin.

Haha, "Bee Wiseman"...I love that name. Thanks for the advice!

We loved that name, too. She was one in a million. :)

A dollop of peanut butter or Guacamole a couple of times per week.

 

A teaspoon of oil once per week also seems to help. (Choose your favorite)

Really peanut butter? Why?
