Greyhound fashions - where do you get all the fantastic clothes and collars?!

 

Shiny coats and skin conditions - how did you get that shiny, healthy coat?

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)

Raw eggs

 

GROOMERS

Scooby & Friends Dog Grooming – Northside ($60 for any service for adopted Greyhounds, and $20 for foster Greyhounds)
