Can Dawn dish soap help with my black Lab's dry skin and dandruff issue?
By Tanya from Boyers, PA
I highly doubt it, because Dawn is best-known for its grease-cutting capabilities. It will only make skin drier.
Ask your vet what he/she recommends to help your dog's dry skin. There are probably over-the-counter remedies available at a nearby pet store.
Another place to look would be at www.DrsFosterSmith.com/
Murphy's oil soap is what my vet recommends. It is made with all natural plant oils and does not strip the snimal's natural oils away.
I would try coconut oil. it's literally one of the best, most all natural organic moisturizer in my opinion!
Improve diet. Raw diet best but no grocery store pet food. Specialty store but no corn. wheat or soy (Causes allergy) Few supplements (like raw flax oil) no vaccines good unsweetened yogurt with ophiluses in it. Borax in carpet for fleas, bathe in oatmeal soap until skin improves. Sometimes if there is no improvement, thyroid needs checked.
