Q. I have a former puppy mill female breeder (Yorkie) who seems healthy NOW, but she doesn't have a good undercoat. What can I do?

A. you can upgrade her food, put her on a high quality grain free dry food (like accana, orijen, canine caviar) and see if that makes any difference. If it doesn't there are some omega 3 and 6 for dogs on the market that can improve coat health sometimes. Bear in mind she might have a medical condition causing this, I would also strongly consider spaying her at this point.
