Just like us, your pet’s skin and coat serve to protect them. Different irritants can affect your dog’s coating as seasons change turning it from vibrant, shiny, and soft to dull and dry. While the cooler months bring dry weather, the warmer months bring allergies and notorious heat. For you, that might mean taking an allergy pill, but it’s not the same for your dog.
One thing is inevitable: keeping your dog’s protective barrier strong and top of mind is essential for their health and happiness. With the proper diet, they can protect themselves all year round, and you can feel more at ease.
Meet Your Dog’s Skin Needs
An important factor in the health of your dog’s skin and coat is their diet. Alongside a regular visit to the groomers, checking for ticks, and regular brushing, feeding them the right nutrients will benefit their skin and coat.
Here are a few specific things to look out for in the nutrition label.
- Animal-based protein should be the number one ingredient.
- The proper balance of Omega-6 & Omega-3 fatty acids are integral for skin and coat health. It also helps reduce inflammation.
- If your dog has a confirmed allergy to an ingredient such as chicken, corn, wheat or soy, look for a diet without those ingredients.
Loyall Life Sensitive Skin & Coat Adult Salmon & Oatmeal Recipe meets these standards. Here are some of the features of the new recipe:
- Specially crafted for dogs with sensitive skin and coat.
- Contains optimal Omega 6 and Omega 3 fatty acid levels, which help support healthy skin and coat.
- Contains no chicken ingredients
- Real salmon is the first ingredient
Factors that can affect your dog’s sensitive skin occur all year long. But, with the right recipe, your pet's skin can protect them through all elements.
If you are to consider switching your dog's food, consult your veterinarian with any questions.
