We, humans take care of our skin, not just to look good on the outside but for health and hygienic purposes as well. But how about our beloved pets?

An important part of maintaining a healthy dog is ensuring that she has a healthy coat. Mind you, your dog’s coat is one of the best ways to gain insight into you’re her condition, be it emotional or physical. Dogs that are happy and healthy seem to emanate glow from their coat.

So, how do you keep your dog’s coat healthy? Use these tips to keep their coat glowing and growing.

Healthy diet

Nutrition is one of the most important aspects of maintaining a healthy coat. Since hair is mostly made up of protein, it would be best to give her foods that are rich in essential fatty acids such as salmon, sardines and tuna. So go ahead and add some to your dog’s food.

Regular grooming

Regular grooming will help keep your dog feel fresh, look clean and stay healthy. Doggy smell is often caused by buildup of oil and bacteria on the dog’s coat. Regular bathing can help. Be sure not to bathe them too often as it may lead to dryness and irritation. Once a month is enough.

Brush regularly

Brushing is also important, especially for long-haired breeds as it helps remove loose dirt and fur. Additionally, it triggers the production of natural oils and spread it throughout the coat to keep it shiny.

Exercise

Exercise does not only keep your dog’s weight in check, it also improves her overall health. Remember, a healthy dog is more likely to have strong, shiny fur.

A little oil

Add a teaspoon to a tablespoon of oil into your dog’s food 2 to 3 times a week. You can use olive, flaxseed, sunflower or coconut oil. Make sure not to add too much as it may cause diarrhea. This is also recommended if your dog has dry fur.
