Q. I have a 10 year old pug overweight with dry skin and a 5 year old Yorkie with dry skin.....please advise me the very best dry dog food that. Can give
DR. CHRISTIE LONG, D.V.M., C.V.A.
A. I am very partial to the foods made by Royal Canin. They do a lot of research on nutrition, and their foods have very high quality ingredients. They make a food called Small Breed which would be ideal for both a pug and a Yorkie. You can typically purchase that food from a vet, however they also make high quality diets that you can buy in stores like PetSmart. I'd also recommend purchasing a fish oil product that's formulated for dogs. Dose according to label directions. The omega 3 fatty acids in fish oil is excellent for building healthy skin.
