If your dog has dry, flaky skin, he might be miserable--scratching often, whining, and in pain. His coat could also be dry as a result of unhealthy skin. Conditioning your pup’s skin could help remedy a bad skin issue. But more than a remedy, a deep skin conditioning can ease the discomfort of dry skin. Conditioning your dog’s skin helps to restore natural oils relieving itchy skin and giving the coat an opportunity to become healthy and beautiful. A healthy conditioning on your dog’s skin can also create a healthy coat with a soft sheen.
If your dog has dry, itchy skin, he’s not very comfortable. Taking a bath might not be top on his list of fun things to do because he skin probably hurts. Water too warm will cause more dryness and sting or burn his skin. Be gentle and consider treats for rewards as you condition his skin.
Elle is gorgeous- And let me tell you- SHE KNOWS IT!!! When she started to lose patches of her pretty red hair abs go bald on the top of her head I was devastated as the proud mother I am. Everyone always comments on how beautiful her coat is Etc. I could even tell that she took pride in her appearance & was feeling the shame in how this condition made her look/ feel. I was trying everything but not one thing helped. Most things we tried made the issue worse & most actually gave her new problems. I went to my groomer & we saw a new vet & a specialty vet dermatologist. Basically after thousands of $ i didn’t have. Several blood tests. Allergy testing and lots of crazy Diets we tried- as well as throwing all toxic items in my entire home out in the garbage- including an entire lifestyle change for the household & family- which is the most valuable thing! It has been bathing her with baby unscented castle soap and a rinse with 2 cups apple cider vinegar 5 cups warm water ( groomer has adopted the method for us) that’s rebalancing her skin and her hair has grown back.
