Healthy Puppy Coats

Pomeranian puppies and Maltipoo puppies, like all other dogs, can grow up to be ones with beautiful healthy coats given the right care from pet owners. Below are some tips to be able to achieve lush and shiny coats for pets:

  • Ensure that a dog’s diet is a balanced combination of protein, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals incorporating omega fatty acids and Vitamin E. Remember that dogs’ diets should be 20 to 25 percent protein.
  • To add shine to a pet’s coat as well as to reduce fur shedding, add one teaspoon of olive, sunflower, safflower, canola, flaxseed, or fish oil to its daily food. Moreover, apple cider vinegar can help prevent some skin conditions in dogs as well as repel fleas when it is added to a dog’s food or water,
  • Brushing a dog’s fur at least once a week helps distribute natural oils, prevents matting, and helps minimize dust and dirt for a cleaner and healthier coat. For dogs prone to shedding, brushing more often is ideal.
  • Regularly visit the veterinarian to have a dog’s overall coat inspected. There are times when skin problems and hair loss in dogs are caused by medical conditions.
