In the last week or so I've noticed that Angus has become flaky on his back. I'm pretty sure it's not the food as he's been on it since December and it actually cleared up the dandruff he developed from the prescription food. I'm thinking the culprit is the extremely dry air in our apartment.
I've got a humidifier that I run intermittently. But I think I need to add something to his food perhaps. What are the suggestions for dry flaky skin? Fish oil?
Finn's skin is fine, soft, shiny, no flakes. Different skin types I guess.

FIsh Oil is a great option. Try the Grizzly Salmon Oil, it uses wild salmon!

I use biologic vet "fats" wild salmon oil.. It's got other oils in it too. It's a pump you put in the fridge...

Do you guys purchase the oil at a pet supply store?

I do. :) They keep it behind the counter because people steal it, so you might have to ask at yours...

Yes Biologic Vet too, forgot about that one! Yes, my store sells both, on the shelf, but I suppose it would be worth stealing it's so great (not that I condone that)

Thanks guys. It's on my list for my next trip to the store.

I bought the biologic vet oil formula. 30 bucks!!! It'll be worth it though when his flakes disappear and his coat is shinier than ever before.
