What food are you feeding? Is she a dilute? I think good skin and coat starts from the inside out with a quality food. I personally supplement both dogs with fish oil, too.

If you use the search box at the top of the page there are loads of really useful threads about dry skin :)

Feeding high quality food, giving sardines, fish oil, not over-brushing or using a harsh brush, washing with cool water instead of hot and not too often, checking for allergies and skin infections ect. Also weather conditions, its normal to shed a bit more this time of year. Good luck with your girl!

Fish Oil?

Can anyone verify "type" of fish oil? My wife got our Zoe some Omega 3 Fish oil from the Vitamin Shoppe. I assume that will work or is there a prefered brand?
