Do Dogs Get Dry Skin?
Has your dog’s groomer recommended a conditioning shampoo or a coat conditioner for your dog? If so, it may be because your dog has dry skin. Ask your groomer how your dog’s skin looks and if there’s any flakiness to the scalp area or irritation to the skin. Dogs can get dry skin for a variety of reasons. One of the main reasons is the environment. Allergies can cause sneezing, coughing and even dry skin. If the weather is too dry, your dog’s skin can become irritated. The best way to help your dog deal with his dry skin is to keep him hydrated, brushed, and on schedule for his routine bath and grooming session. If this doesn’t help your dog, try also a few home remedies approved by your Tipp City, OH veterinary clinic to soothe the skin. For instance, sprinkle olive oil on your dog’s food to help prevent dry skin.
