By just following these five easy dog skin care steps your pooch will be at the head of the posh pooch parade!
Five Easy Dog Skin Care Steps:
1. A good nutritious diet is the best way to ensure that your dog stays strong and healthy. Fat is essential for a healthy skin and promotes a shiny coat.
2. Exercise: Take your dog for a daily walk – twice if you can squeeze in the time.
3. Daily Brushing: Even five minutes of gentle brushing stimulates the oil glands in the skin and nourishes the coat.
4. Shampoo: Use a good quality shampoo with natural ingredients such as oatmeal, papaya or aloe. If your dog has dry, itchy skin selects a shampoo that has a moisturizing ingredient. Take appropriate steps to rid your dog of these pests.
If you notice that your dog has developed a skin problem and is not responding to the above basic principles of good dog skin care, you may want to apply a natural pet balm to the affected area. If all fails – schedule a visit to the vet.
