Supplements for my dogs coat
stephmarsden posted:
My litlle pit bull puppy has terrible skin. My vet feels it is a skin allergy, so we changed her to hypoallergenic food. It was also suggested to me that I use a fatty acid supplement in her food. Does anyone have any ideas what I should use?

Hey, again this is two years late but I told this same thing in other thread here about my whippets. Check out and look there for more information about fatty acids! All I can say it has helped our dogs and science is behind it. After all, it works with humans too.
