What is she eating?Changing her food might help(thats why I ask.


try washing her (no lie)with Murphy's Oil soap(not the cheep stuff,nor the spray kind)It is all naturel and will add oil to her coat.

she eats purina dog chow. thats what the prev owner had her on too. i
noticed when we got her she had the dry skin problem. i havent heard of
using murphys, but i will give it a try and maybe it will help her, she
is so miserable and scratches all the time. i thought she possibly had
fleas, but nothing there.

Purina has alot of grain in it(not really a great food)


Is there a pet store near by where you can get a better quality food.


You get out of your dog what you put in.

Canidae is a good food


Solid Gold also.


They cost more,but in the long run they cost less.As you should have fewer ear problems,coat and you will have a genualy healther dog.and the big one less poop.as they will digest more of the food.

With a better quality you do not need to add anything to their diet.


Raw chicken wings are good as a treat at least once a week.My room mate feeds all her dog totaly raw.If interested let me know and I will post some links on this diet.

I've heard about BARF ( don't think this is a good name though )
Donna do you do this? I went to the sites you listedthey are very helpful explaning about this type of feeding . not sure if I could feed my dogs chicken wings ?....although they would probably like it .

ive heard that you can give a dog a raw egg mixed with their food for the coat. is this true, and is it healthy for them?

eggs,yogart cottage cheese, there is alot of stuff that you could be adding to their food that would only help.


I do not feed the barf diet.My friend does and the dogs are doing great.


They digest almost all the food they eat and poop very little.Since there is a high mosture count in the food they eat,the dogs drink less I'v knowest.


It's not for everyone.

i changed emmas food today. they didnt have solid gold or the other
one, but they told me to put her on nutra. it is the best dog food the
pet store here had, they said it is all natural. i added some to her
food that she had, how long should i continue to phase out the old? i
dont want to change to fast and make her have problems.

Sorry its took me time to answer back about the canoli oil. I mix it with a clove of garlic and half a can of tuna.each dog gets their own bowl. Their coats are soft and silky. Tom
