A dog’s coat texture is not just one of the most striking visual features of our four-legged friends, but also provides a lot of important information about the dog’s health. A shiny and strong coat indicates that the dog does not have any deficiencies or diseases. Pet nutrition expert Dr.Clauder’s from Hamminkeln offers a wide range of supplements to ensure that your dog’s coat is always adequately supplied – optimally adapted to the varying needs of dogs.
Dogs may shed their coat from summer to winter, when neutered or when they're about to be in heat. Many dogs also suffer from continual hair loss. To optimally support the dog’s body, the coat should be combed regularly and the dog should be given nutritional supplements that promote the skin's metabolism. One of the best supplements for this is biotin. It strengthens the hair and alleviates skin problems, whilst also strengthening the claws at the same time. In addition, it is recommended to administer vitamins, the essential amino acids DL-methionine and lysine. Dr.Clauder’s Hair & Skin – Fell Plus Serum offers the optimal combination to significantly strengthen the dog's coat and promote shedding. A warm winter coat with a dense undercoat is supported with the addition of various oils, such as safflower oil, corn oil, sunflower oil, walnut oil, grape seed oil and linseed oil. Dr.Clauder's Hair & Skin – Multi Derm Complex10 Oil can simply be added to the food.
This saying does not apply to every dog. Very picky eaters in particular can sometimes show symptoms of deficiency. High-quality salmon oil, such as Dr.Clauder's Hair & Skin – Multi Derm Salmon Oil can help. The exquisite taste even entices dogs with little or no appetite. At the same time, it supports vital bodily functions in the liver, kidneys and metabolism, thus ensuring a shiny, healthy coat. The fact that nutrition plays a major role for a healthy coat is also evident when it comes to allergies and intolerances. Because in most cases, these issues reveal themselves through flaky, itchy skin and a dull coat. It is advisable to support affected dogs with biotin, high doses of vitamin A and hyaluronic acid in order to counteract allergic reactions. Especially hyaluronic acid provides the skin – which is an excellent water reservoir – with moisture and thus facilitates regeneration. A corresponding dosage can be found in Dr.Clauder's Hair & Skin – Derma Plus Forte.
Also for dogs. If the coat loses colour with age, natural supplements can help. Dark pigmentation is refreshed by natural seaweed (Ascophyllum Nodosum), which is enriched with minerals, proteins, vitamins and trace elements, as in Dr.Clauder's Algosan. Reddish and brown pigmentation of the coat is promoted by the provitamin A (beta-carotene) contained in carrots, which is included in Dr.Clauder’s carrot granules. To prevent deficiency symptoms that are reflected in the dog's coat and skin, Dr.Clauder's Hair & Skin – Multi-Derm tablets can be added to your dog's food for the long term. The Dr.Clauder's Hair & Skin – Coat Active Yeast pellets ensure that your four-legged friend is not missing anything. They are also anti-inflammatory thanks to the added devil's claw.
