from personal experience

A healthy dog can be seen at once: a shine in the eyes, good mood, but the primary indicator is a healthy shiny coat.
Wool and dermal elements play an essential role in the life of dogs and, based on their condition. You can see in according to these indicators whether the dog is healthy or not.
The condition of your dog’s hair and skin is affected by several factors: food, vitamins, grooming. heredity and parasites. 
  • Heredity determines the length and colour of the dog’s coat;
  • Allergies and parasites are the leading causes of hair loss and skin problems. 

So How to Make Your Dog Healthy?

Balanced Dog Food

What else can you do for the health of your dog’s skin and coat? It’s simple: provide a quality balanced diet with protein (the basis of the coat is protein, which means that a large part of the daily consumed by the dog, the protein goes to the growth of the coat) and other elements.

Pay attention to the skin condition of your pet. If it is peeling, lost elasticity or the dog strongly sheds – this may be a sign of the inappropriate food. You may need to change a dog’s diet or food. In any case, you should take consultations of vets.

It is also worth remembering that high-quality ready-made food (dry or canned) is already a balanced diet. Manufactures like Royal Canine, Pure Balance, Pedigree take into account all the needs of the dog’s organism: vitamins and mineral supplements. 

Vital Vitamins

Studies have shown that certain vitamins have a significant impact on the overall health of dogs and the condition of the skin and coat, in particular. They are divided into two groups: 
  • Omega-3;
  • Omega-6. 

The correct ratio of Omega-3 and Omega-6 is 1: 5-10

You should remember that these vitamins are not produced by the body and should be supplied with food. Quality pet food already contains all the necessary amounts of vitamins in the right proportion. If you feed your dog with cheap food or homemade food, don’t forget to add the following oils and products to the dog’s meal:
  • corn oil;
  • fish oil;
  • fish.

Shampoos & Conditioners

If your dog is healthy – it will have a beautiful and healthy coat, but do not forget about taking care of it. The coat allows you to monitor the skin condition and reveals problems in the early stages.
For hair care, you will need the following tools: 
  1. Brush; 
  2. Dryer;
  3. Nail clippers; 
  4. Shampoo for dogs. 

And it is the minimum set!

With age, the canine’s skin becomes more sensitive, dry or irritated. It should be considered when choosing the best dog shampoo. Do not use the usual human shampoo that you wash.
