What to do with your pet’s dry skin in the winter?





We humans aren't the only ones who suffer from dry skin in the winter!  Our dogs’ and cats' coats can get dry and course and some of this can be caused by a deficiency of fatty acids in their diet.  Without these essential fatty acids, wounds won’t heal, kidneys can degenerate and glands can dry up.  You can supplement your pets diet with fatty acids like vegetable oils (safflower, sunflower, etc.).  

However, the best source is fish oil.  You can even give it to your pooch as a treat!
