Skin & Coat Health

Does your furry family member itch all the time, chew their paws, or smell like a bag of Fritos? These all can be signs of minor skin and coat issues. Today we're here to chat about keeping your furry friend’s skin and coat looking good and smelling fresh.

Hey there, I’m Annabel from Bentley’s pet stuff. Does your furry family member itch all the time, chew their paws, or smell like a bag of Fritos? These all can be signs of minor skin and coat issues. Today we’re here to chat about keeping your furry friend’s skin and coat looking good
and smelling fresh.

We at Bentley’s like to approach these minor skin and coat issues from the inside out. Instead of starting by applying creams and sprays to your pet’s coat, we recommend changing your furry friend’s diet. Try slowing adding in a food where its main animal protein is a high concentration of fish. Fish is shown to greatly help skin and coat issues. As we all know, a heathy gut means a heathy pet and that is no different when it comes to their skin and coat.

Try adding pre- and pro-biotics into their diet to help keep their gut healthy.

After making these two changes to your pet’s diet, try adding oils like fish oil or coconut oil into your furry friend’s regiment. Most oils are lost in the food making process but are integral to have in your furry friend’s diet.

While your furry family member heals internally, use shampoos that are designed to treat and heal dry skin and coat. Be sure to avoid any shampoos with grains because these are high in sulfates and can do bad than good. Continue your pet on this regiment until their skin and coat begins to heal. Slowly use the shampoo but continue to feed your pet an all natural, filler free diet to maintain their skin and coat.

Now that your furry family member is back to looking and smelling great, let the cuddles resume.

Thanks for tuning in with us today. Be sure to check out some of our other videos and don’t forget, at Bentley’s we care about your pets as much as you do.
