    DefaultDry Skin

    I was brushing Angel today and noticed that she has really dry/flaky skin. Is there anything I can do to help it out? We've had her for almost two months and has only had one bath. Do you think it's just due to cold weather or what should I look for to find out the cause of it? It doesn't seem to be bothering her, she's not scratching herself more than usual so I'm not too worried about it yet.

    Fish oil helps. Be sure it's balanced w/ Vit E. I need to start my 12 wk old puppy on it too by the looks of her coat today.

    They're eating blue buffalo LBP. I'll try the sardines with her and see how it goes. How many should I give her?
