Often when greyhounds first come in or at the changing of the seasons their coat can get dull, itchy or develop dandruff. Here are some fail-safe solutions our members swear by:
SPRAYS AND TOPICAL SOLUTIONS
Alpha Keri Oil (mixed 50/50 with water, apply to coat with a spray bottle and brush through)
FOOD AND ADDITIVES
500mg Fish Oil capsule (one a day, can leave whole or puncture and squeeze oil over kibble)
Natural Animal Solutions Digesta Vita Plus (1/2 scoop with food once a day – scoop is provided in container)
Natural Animal Solutions Omega Oil (Added to food daily - read dosage instructions on bottle to determine amount needed)
Coconut Oil (mixed in with food or massaged directly onto coat)
Tinned sardines (in spring water or olive oil)
Scooby & Friends Dog Grooming – Northside ($60 for any service for adopted Greyhounds, and $20 for foster Greyhounds)
Wicked Wags Dog Grooming – Southside ($60 for a wash, blow-dry, de-shed and nail trim)
Food glorious food! What are you feeding your hound?
