How to maintain your dog’s coat healthy and shinny

A dog with a healthy, shiny and smooth fur coat not only looks better but also feels better and I’m saying this because generally, the condition of the dog's fur and skin is a sign of his health.

Here are some tips that might help you give your dog a healthy coat.

  • Schedule regular veterinary visits where he can be checked and treated for parasites infections like fleas, mites, ticks and worms.This culprits can give your dog an unhealthy looking coat;
  • Make sure that he has a healthy diet. the most important ingredients in a dog's diet are vitamins, proteins and omega 3. Omega 3 is a fatty acid that is found in fish like tuna, salmon, sardines, etc. and can help him achieve a shiny coat;
  • Exercise not only keeps him in top shape but it also stimulates blood and oxygen flow, bringing more nutrients to the fur and making it look beautiful;
  • Try to brush his coat at least once a week in order to remove dead hair, dirt, curls and also to stimulate the skin and hair follicles, dues resulting in a healthier and shinier look;
  • Regular bathing plays an important part in keeping your dog’s coat healthy and shiny. It is usually recommended once a month but it differs from breed to breed, type of coat and also of the environment in which he lives.For example a hunting dog that loves to dig, jump in water, play in the mud requires a more frequent bathing than a bulldog that loves to stay most of the time in bed sleeping.Make sure to use high quality shampoos that contain vitamin E and aloe and if your dog has sensitive or irritated skin try using oatmeal shampoo.

So these are the basic things you can do to ensure that your best friend is a healthy as it should be. Because a healthy puppy is a happy puppy.
