Dry skin

Post by REGGIESMUM2014 on Mon Jun 27 2016, 19:30

My dog has dandruff... really flakey skin, i brush him and he is full of it. He also has thinning of the hair on the top of his head and he stratches quite a bit it's uncomfy for me to watch so it must be hell for him.
Would be grateful for some advice. Thanks in advance.

Could be several reasons, but my first thought would be to get some cocnut oil - add a quarter of a teaspoon a day to his food, and massage a small amount into his skin two or three times a week.

can i ask what colour your dog is & what food you give him?

just a thought. some dogs are poultry intolerant, so try cutting out the chicken for a while, and introducing cocnut oil.

let us know if it helps?
