We all know dry skin can be really painful. Between the cracks and dry spots, it can really do a number on us if left untreated. Dry skin can also be a real problem on our pets.
To stop dry skin from affecting your pets, here are a few tips to help with prevention.
Dry Skin Prevention Tips
Check Your Pets Diet
Sometimes, a deficiency in your pet’s diet can cause dry skin to form. Go through and check to make sure it is getting right amount as well as all the nutrients it needs to have a healthy skin.
You could also try and add fatty acid supplements to its diet as these have been known to help with dry skin and skin oils.
Not using the right shampoo when bathing your pet can also lead to skin issues as it can strip it of natural oils it needs to keep its skin smooth. Instead, use a shampoo containing Colloidal Oatmeal as it will help combat and prevent dry skin on your pet.
Make sure you are brushing and grooming your pets regularly. This will help eliminate at dead skin that has accumulated on your pet. If not, the dead skin will start to build up, leading to more cracking and flaking which will make your pet very uncomfortable.
