What's Good For An Australian Shepherd With Dry Flakey Skin?
I have a two year old Aussie. We are in pretty cold weather and have electric heat so the air is really dry. Her skin on her inner thighs has become dry and flakey. The vet said to give her fish oil 1 x a day. I had just started giving her an egg 1 to 2 times a week but he thought she has some allergy issues as her ears seem to bother her but there is no sign of infection.
Does anyone know what else I can do? Is there anything topical to put on her skin directly?
I have humidifiers running to add moisture in the house. Although they do make a difference they aren't the greatest.
My poor Auss seems pretty high maintenance. Poor thing! Appreciate any advice. Thanks in advance! Nancy from Wenatchee, WA
