Skin and Coat Problems

StC Dog Paw

Dog fanciers are well aware that the condition of the skin and hair usually reflects the general health of the animal. If the problem is not of parasitic or allergic origin, there are recipes that can be of help.

For skin conditions including abnormal shedding, the diet should include:

  • High levels of protein
  • Adequate amounts of carbohydrates
  • Moderate amounts of fat
  • Vitamin-mineral supplements

Typical Recipe


  • 4 oz raw or cooked hamburger
  • 1 chopped hard-boiled egg
  • 1 tablespoon corn oil
  • 1 cup cooked white rice

Salt to taste and supplement with vitamins and minerals. If the same recipe is fed over long periods, add 2 oz each of cooked carrots and cooked celery.
