Royal Canin Canine Skin Care Adult and Junior: Notes from our vet
If your dog suffers from problems with their skin it can be really difficult for both of you to cope. Constant scratching can be upsetting to watch and often limits the activities you and your dog can enjoy together.
Skin disease is one of the most common pet problems vets have to deal with. Irritable skin can be caused by many things including pollen, dust or mites. Pets with skin disease have been shown to have a reduced natural skin barrier, making it easier for irritants to get through. Your pet will react to the irritant by scratching, which can exacerbate the problem by causing secondary infections. It’s often impossible to cure this vicious cycle but there are ways you can help your pet to manage better.
One thing that can really work is increasing the level of fatty acids in your dog’s diet. These have been shown to play an important role in keeping skin healthy but most dog food only contains a small amount.
Royal Canin Canine Skin Care is packed with fatty acids. Not only do they help build the skin’s natural barrier preventing allergens from causing a nasty reaction, they have also been proven to reduce hair loss. It’s the ideal diet for dogs suffering from skin disease or serious moulting problems.
The feed also contains important nutrients to help skin stay healthy and provide relief from constant itching. It’s specially designed to be tasty and easily digestible for your dog. It also comes in a Junior form suitable for puppies.
So although your pet’s scratching may never totally disappear, changing their diet can give some welcome relief, giving you both a break and the chance to enjoy life again.
