How to Improve the Quality of Your Dog’s Hair:

  • Add an occasional raw egg to his diet (note: Salmonella is a very, very small risk that you take yourself every time you eat an egg as well. And do not feed too many raw eggs to your dog, or it could make him sick)
  • Adding Fish Oil to your dog’s diet has also been proven to improve the quality of your dog’s hair AND skin.
  • Try experimenting with various types of shampoos, such as soothing oatmeal shampoo and moisturizing rinses, that are geared towards nourishing your dogs skin and hair.
  • After bathing your dog and removing excess water, trying adding olive oil to your dog’s hair and massaging into his skin. Then rinse clean. This treatment usually provides quicker results than the raw eggs and the fish oil.
  • Try switching to a higher quality dog food that is geared toward improving the quality of your dog’s hair and skin.
