Q. I have a rough collie. Her skin is dry and she is scratching. What would be the best oil to give her and how often? She is in good shape and 5yrs.
A. An essential fatty acid supplement (usually a fish oil) may promote healthy skin and is an excellent supplement. Search www.pet360.com for fish oil supplements. Capsules are preferred for ease of adoring and administration over bulk containers of fish oil. DermCaps or EicosaCaps are excellent fish oil supplements for dogs. You can also discuss the issue with your vet. He or she may have a preferred source or brand to recommend.
