TOP #71: How Diet Affects Your Dog’s Skin and Coat


If your pup is suffering from itching due to dry and brittle coat, the likely cause of that is his dry skin.

She provides advice on how to avoid skin problems through proper nutrition, and tips on how to fix any coat and skin issues that arise as a result of improperly balanced meals or lack of specific nutrients.
