While you may not always be paying attention, there is a noticeable difference between dogs that have good coats and dogs that donâ€™t. There is a difference in the shine and appearance. There is a difference in the touch and believe it or not, it makes a big difference to your dog. So how do you get your dog to have that nice healthy coat? The answer is easier than you think. There are just a few simple things you can do to improve your dog’s coat.
Feed Them Well
It doesnâ€™t sound like it matters but it does. There are so many vitamins and nutrients in the food that you give your dog that it will definitely contribute to the quality of their coat. If you are unsure of the type of dog food that is best for your dog, ask their vet what food is best. But the good news is that even a good guess at the grocery store should suffice. Almost every food available today has the right amount of vitamins and nutrients.
Keep Those Fleas Out
Nothing can be as detrimental to your dogs overall health, as well as the health of their coat, as fleas. Make sure you are doing everything you can to keep your dog flea free. Products like Frontline Plus are good for not only killing off the existing fleas but also keeping new eggs from hatching.
Give Them the Royal Treatment
It can be an expense but it would be best from time to time to take your dog for a shampoo and haircut. Professional groomers do a great job. They use shampoos that make your dog’s coat shine as well as give them a quality haircut. Follow these simple steps and your dog will have a great looking coat in no time. They deserve it.
