Is Your Dog Suffering from Dry Skin This Chicago Winter

Dogs experience discomfort  every winter because of the dryness of their fur and skin. The cold, dry air of winter can give your dog flaky, rough, painful skin. This in turn can lead to everything from a  coat full of dandruff to  obsessive scratching and even hot spots or skin lesions. These types of constant pain can increase your dog’s aggressive nature.

Your dog doesn’t have to suffer just because of the cold, dry winter weather. Stop winter skin and coat problems in its tracks by taking some time to prepare your dog’s body for the season. Today I’d like to share some dog friendly tips that can help alleviate these symptoms.

The major factor in irritated dog skin is dry winter air. As soon as temperatures start dropping, a humidifier  in your home can help prevent symptoms that lead to dry skin.  The next thing to do is to make sure that your dog has access to fish oil tablets that will help heal skin from the inside.
