Dog with Dry and Flaky Skin

My dog Pekingese dog, Ginger has dry dark flaky skin. When I brush her it seems to get everywhere in her fur, but never goes away. It is almost part of her skin color. Any suggestions?

Dog with Dry and Flaky Skin

My dog, a Shih-tzu, had a flaky skin problem for a while with a lot of itching, licking, and scratching. We never had her tested for allergies, although that's usually the first thing everyone recommends. I figured we'd try to start with the easiest solution before I test her for allergies. So we ended up getting a shampoo (Malaseb) from the Vet and it seems to really work for her. We have to bath her often (1x week) with that shampoo. I actually thought bathing too often would cause problems, but with the right shampoo it helped significantly. Good luck. (01/28/2008)

For our Black Lab it was a preliminary sign of a thyroid condition, so maybe discuss it with a veterinary. (01/28/2008)

We have dogs that are notorious for skin problems and they have never had a problem, they have been on Eukanuba since birth. Its a more expensive dog food but worth it, as you don't need to add anything to their diet. Since your dog is small, a bag of food will last a long time. It probably will take a few months on this diet before you will notice any difference. Good luck.

Try giving your dog coconut oil. Since your dog is small probably 1 tbsp. is good per day. They love it and lick it right off the spoon. You can also rub it on her dry skin. Give it about 2 weeks, you should see a difference. (01/29/2008)
