Okay, lovely PBFers, I've trimmed out the inappropriate off topic discussion from this thread in the hopes that the original poster can get some useful, topical information from her thread, so please don't revive the nonsense that I trimmed out, or a lock will happen.

How 'bout we focus on helping the OP instead of getting into an internet battle of wits with each other, what do you say? You wanna continue the OT discussion? Take it to PMs, or start a separate discussion and keep it civil. :thumbsup:

and i'm not real sure what ACV is..?

thanks yall!


I'd be willing to bet that if you switched to a higher quality food she'll smell better, you won't need to give her a bath as often which, along with the better food, will help her skin out a bunch. Supplementing with fish body oils, as someone already suggested, will likely help out the situation as well.

Ditto
Throw in a raw egg every now and then. Maybe try some ProZyme.
But the Salmon oil will really really help

Also I didnt see anything about this yet, but unless your pup is getting extremely dirty or peeing in the cage or anything, a bath once a week in my opinion is to much. All that bathing does not help out dry skin either..especially in the winter months..

There's no harm in doing raw. It would be an improvement for sure. :) They sell pre-packaged raw through Nature's Variety if you wanted to start there. :)
