Whether your dog suffers from dermatitis, allergies, hot spots, or just dry itchy skin, these can usually be traced back to inadequate nutrition in his diet.
According to Tammy Hunter, DVM, "A dog whose diet is inadequate to meet his dietary needs will have a dull, dry hair coat and will often shed excessively. If your dog’s skin or coat problem is caused by an underlying health issue, the general health of the skin and the quality of the hair often improve dramatically when the illness is brought under control through treatment, which may include dietary changes."
A healthy coat and skin relies heavily on essential Omega 3 fatty acids and even Vitamin E in the diet. These can be found in a number sources including seafood, nuts, seeds, grass-fed animals and dairy products. With a traditional kibble diet, most nutrients have been cooked out during high-heat processing, leading to inadequate nutrition for your dog.
A raw food diet, the diet our dogs were built to eat, contains the balanced blend of nutrients our dogs need to thrive. The Omega 3 fatty acids, Vitamin E, and other nutrients that help keep their skin and coat in tip top shape can be found in real, raw meat and organ meat...something you won't find in most commercial dog foods.
