    I've always supplemented with an omega-3 (salmon oil or sardines) and for awhile gave coconut oil.
    With his yeast infection and super dry skin, I'd be looking at possible allergies...

    Thank you.ragwee is really high out there now and I stopped him from trying to eat a weed last week. Guessing it could be a bit of both. We've had a lot of rain. Great fungus weather. I'll add the omega3 also and see how it goes. He just had a Burt's Bee bath for dogs with sensitive skin. BTW I like sardines too LoL

    I am allergic to coconut in all it's forms. I'm thinking it was the oatmeal I added to his diet it's timeline and the appearance of the itchy skin seems to have appeared around that time
    Had one other dog allergic to oats. She got a cough Thanks, love and hugs and a big bark from Sir Barkalot

    Neither of the products I posted are omega 3. The Essential 6 product is topical, similar to a topical flea medicine. It comes in a little pipette and you break it open and squeeze the product on the dog’s back between the shoulder blades, directly on the skin. You’ll have to part the fur a little to apply it.

    It's not a flea medication. But the application is similar to a topical flea med.
