A glossy coat is good...
You can tell a lot about your dog’s general wellbeing from the condition of his coat. A glossy coat is good news, whereas a coat in poor condition could indicate one of several things. It might mean your little dog is lacking in the right vitamins and minerals, so a diet check is essential.
Poor skin and coat can also indicate food allergies or diabetes – have a word with your vet if in doubt. Things to look out for when you’re checking your little dog’s coat and skin include hair loss, excessive dandruff or crustiness, reddened/ greasy skin and increased scratching.
