It’s hard to watch your fur friend suffer with skin and coat issues, and natural to want to help them through it. Dogs can’t verbalise when they’re in need of skin and coat remedies, but there are clear signs when your canine friend needs a little help in the skin/coat department. Itching, for example, is a clear sign that something’s irritating your dog’s skin. Whether the cause is parasites, allergies, or something else entirely, it’s hard to miss the constant scratching, licking, and chewing. Another sign you might see is a dull, dry coat that lacks the lustre and glossiness it once had, or a dry, cracked nose; something our Calm Nourishing Balm is perfect for.
Yes, you can make your own dog skin and coat remedies, but considering the many causes of dog skin and coat issues it’s best to take the time to find the underlying triggers. Consultation with your vet is advised to rule out any medical issues. To provide them some relief in the meantime, you can take the proactive approach and protect them from parasites with our Insect Defence Spray, or wash them with our Itchy Dog Shampoo to soothe their irritated skin.
ProDog’s Itchy Dog Supplement range is perfect for resolving skin and coat issues in the most natural way possible. For allergy issues, our Protect supplement provides relief while restoring a healthy gut microbiome and supporting your canine pal’s immune system. Our Shine supplement is a delicious meal topper that returns the gloss and lustre to your dog’s coat, while adding to their overall wellbeing thanks to its natural blend of nutrition-boosting ingredients.
At ProDog Raw, we know that the well-being of our dogs extends beyond food. Chemicals and toxins from the outside also play a part in what’s happening on the inside. Of course, there are environmental contaminants we just can’t control, but there are plenty we can; starting with the products we use directly on our dogs.
The skin is the immune system’s first line of defence. That’s why we only ever feature products using the highest quality ingredients, only found in nature.
It’s no secret that we advocate a raw diet at ProDog. Skin and coat remedies are helpful tools when your dog needs a little extra support, but resolving issues at the root is your best line of defence. Your dog’s diet can either be beneficial to their health, or the polar opposite. Feeding a raw, species-appropriate diet allows your dog to thrive in a multitude of ways: fresher breath, reduced allergies, better energy levels, and of course, healthier skin and coat.
