What is this?


Recommended Posts

Looks like dandruff. It's very dry in the house and when I pet him, sometimes I get a poke. He gets a fish oil capsule once a day. Seems fine otherwise. Anything else I should be doing?

Maybe use an oatmeal shampoo? Never tried this myself but my boss (who rescues Huskies) swears by it. We give Star and Seven a little bacon grease on their kibble a couple of times a week. I know this isn't very healthy, but their coats are sure shiny!

Try running humidifiers in your house. My dogs get fish oil & vegetable oil with every meal and have beautiful coats -- But any time we go somewhere that is really dry (ie: agility trials, generally) they get white dander in the winter. I run humidifiers at home all the time because I can't stand winter dryness and they are fine there.

Thanks! I'll try everyone's suggestions. The weather's been so bad he's been inside more than usual, which probably contributes to the flakiness. Normally we'd have had a lot of snow by now and he'd be outside, loving every minute of it, but we haven't had much this winter--just very cold, or ice storms. <_< We have a humidifier in the bedroom. Maybe I'll put the other one in "his" room for a while and see if that helps.

 

BTW, can I use any brand/type of vegetable oil?
