Informative tips on how to keep your dog’s skin and coat healthy

If you notice that your dog is excessively scratching or licking, it could be a sign that they have irritated, itchy skin. Itchy skin can be caused by a number of reasons including fleas, ticks, mites, infection, or sometimes a food intolerance or allergy to something. Other factors to look out for can include patchy fur due to hair loss, and a generally dry, dull looking coat. If you notice any of these issues, then it’s important to find the root of the problem. 

Vale Pet Foods

Here at Vale Pet Foods, we ensure that we only use the highest quality and sustainably sourced ingredients in our recipes. This means that our food and treats are healthy, wholesome, free of fillers and additives, and are able to keep your dog in tip top condition.

Coconut Oil

Several of our ingredients are great for keeping the skin and coat healthy and glossy and are therefore beneficial for dogs with sensitive or dry skin. For instance, our dry food recipes contain coconut oil, which is packed with several healthy fats and therefore is fantastic at hydrating the skin and keeping the coat healthy and glossy.

 Sweet Potato

 In addition, we also include sweet potato as one of our major ingredients in our dry food recipes. Sweet potato contains several important omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, as well as other vital vitamins, which are all huge factors in the contribution to improved skin and coat health. Sweet Potato is also low in fat and carbohydrates, and therefore does not contribute to additional excessive weight gain.

Salmon Oil

The most important ingredient used in our dry food recipes for skin and coat care is Salmon Oil. Salmon Oil is fantastic for nourishing the skin and coat, and therefore keeping it healthy by relieving symptoms of irritating skin conditions caused by allergies. It does this by containing fantastic amounts of omega-3 and 6 fatty acids. Omega 3 as well as nourishing the coat it also acts as a natural anti-inflammatory which will combat the source of the dog’s irritation and relive the itch. Omega 6 assists by protecting the dogs skin barrier stopping allergens (pollen, mites, dust etc) from entering and causing further irritation. Salmon oil also contains a whole host of essential vitamins which aid in boosting the immune system, which in turn can help relieve allergy symptoms and itchy skin.

Grain and Wheat-Free

 Another reason why our dry food is great for dogs with sensitive skin and allergies is due to it being completely grain and wheat-free. Dogs do not require grain and wheat in their diet, and the addition of these in pet foods tend to mean the food is bulked out with unnecessary fillers, which do not add any nutritional value and can contribute to unwanted weight gain and allergy symptoms such as itchy, dry skin. Leaving grains out of our recipes means there is more room for responsibly sourced fresh meat and several nutritious fruits and vegetables, which will only fuel your dog with the best nutrition.
