Adding supplements to your dog’s diet can help maintain healthy skin and coat. Skin and Coat supplements are especially beneficial to dogs with skin allergies or skin irritation/itchy skin. Check out the following supplements and read about the benefits of adding them to your pet’s diet. The most common way to give supplements to your dog is to add it to their food.
Skin and Coat
Omega 6’s and Omega 3’s, also known as Essential Fatty Acids or EFA’s, are very important for maintaining healthy skin and a shiny coat. Dogs need more Omega 6’s than 3’s but it’s important to note most dog food contains Omega 6’s. Supplementing Omega 3’s are a wonderful idea to help your pet maintain a shiny coat and healthy, glowing skin! Click here to read more about the benefits of adding EFA’s to your pet’s diet. EFAs are also great for cats 🙂
