Dog Nutrition for a Healthy Coat
Dogs can have such a soft coat; it can be one of the things we notice about a dog when we pet them. To receive positive comments on your dog’s coat is a great compliment to receive. Having a healthy coat can be a sign of a healthy dog.
Unfortunately, some dogs are plagued with itchy and flaky skin. This is not nice for the dog to deal with, but it can also be unpleasant for those stroking them.
Essential Fatty Acids Are Key To A Healthy Coat For Your Dog
Just like humans, dogs can get nutrients from healthy fats. They play an important role in keeping your dog’s coat in good condition. Dogs can develop dull coats due to nutritional deficiencies.
In this modern age, the dog food available on the market is vast. Having quality pet food readily available means it’s actually very difficult for a pet to have a nutritional deficiency of any kind.
Reputable commercial dog foods typically contain enough nutrients, including essential fatty acids, to maintain healthy skin and a shiny coat.
In contrast, dogs on low-quality commercial dog foods or improperly balanced homemade diets -- for instance, a dog that eats mostly chicken -- may not get enough nutrients to keep a healthy skin and coat.
In fact, puppies that eat very low-fat diets develop coarse, dry hair and skin lesions that become prone to infection.
But diet isn’t the only culprit when it comes to irritated skin and dull coat. Dogs that scratch themselves frequently or are bathed too often can lose oil from their skin.
Just like when humans wash their hair too often they can strip their scalp of natural oils, the same applies to dogs.
Supplements can often remedy the problem of not having a healthy coat. Typically dog brands add nutrients and supplements such as Omega oils to promote a healthy coat.
