:Cheers: Time of year and all the big and small muts are shedding their hair? When feeding your dog put some cod liver oil in the food. It will give the mutt and nice shiny coat and keep their hair, nails, and joint in good condition. Use only the liquid cod liver oil. Dose depending on the dogs size.
Shampoo causes skin irritations on dogs. Dog shampoo is expensive, so use baby shampoo,it's cheap and will not cause bacterial infections on the dogs skin.

Just had the dog clipped nice and short for the summer, skin was quite flaky underneath so will try the baby shampoo stuff, save the timotei for me.

If he's flaky underneath, use the cod liver oil in his food for a few weeks. You will see a big difference

Every few months not good for theri coats,build up of bacteria in the skin,causes irritation, and will cost you in the long term with vets. Stick him in the shower for a few minutes and give him something nice a few times. After a while he'll be calling you to go to the shower.Don't forget the cod liver oil and watch the difference in a few weeks . Shiny coat,full of life and better eyesight.
