Keeping his Skin and Coat Looking Amazing

His first defence is healthy skin

No matter the age, breed or gender, a dog’s skin provides several key health functions. It accounts for 24% of a young puppy’s body weight and 13% of an adult dog’s, providing a vital protective layer that’s a first defence against the nasties of the outside world. Smooth and healthy skin can also hold your dog’s hair better and heal him quicker from scratches. So it’s vital we keep it healthy for great dog health.

Your dog’s outward appearance is among the best indicators of his wellbeing. If something looks wrong, the first thing you should do is visit your vet who can help you find the source of his ailment. However, seeing how he reacts to a variety of outside factors can help you determine the source of sensitivity or pinpoint an allergy.

Itchy skin is frequently due to allergies. Allergies can result from contact with, or inhalation/ingestion of any number of allergens, from flea bites and dust mites to a particular food. Your vet will be able to help identify the allergy.
