Skin and Coat Tell a Tale of Health
Keeping your companion animal’s skin healthy and coat shiny can prove challenging.
The skin is the largest organ in the body and requires proteins and other nutrients. It’s not surprising that subtle changes in the amount of nutrients supplied to the skin can have a noticeable affect on its overall condition.
Even if your companion animal eats a nutritious diet, his or her skin takes a backseat to the rest of her organs … in essence, only receiving the “leftovers”. Dr. Jane Bicks, founder of Dr. Jane’s Healthy Pet Foundation, believes it’s important to supplement with additional nutrients, to help your furry one achieve skin and coat health.
Here are the top five essential nutrients Dr. Jane says you should consider for optimal skin and coat health: Omega-3 Poly-Unsaturated Fatty Acids, Vitamin E, Zinc, Vitamin A, and Vitamin B.
