|We are having the worst problem here! Kiera has really bad flaky skin right now. I'm thinking it's just the weather. But, she did have fleas, so that could be causing it. I'm wondering if the fleas could have caused a secondary fungal infections (is that possible)? I talked to my vet about this and he thought her diet could be the root cause of this. I have her on Canidae right now and he wrote her a prescription for Royal Canin Formula Skin and Coat KO. So, I'm going to pick that up today and see how she does on it. I've been bathing her weekly and I'm really hoping the new food helps her. Here are the ingredients:
Oat Flour, Kangaroo, Canola Meal, Animal Fat (preserved with mixed Tocopherols, a source of Vitamin E, and Citric Acid), Dried Beet Pulp (sugar removed), Fish Oil (preserved with Ethoxyquin), Calcium Carbonate, Salt, Dicalcium Phosphate, Sodium Hexametaphosphate, Choline Chloride, DL-Methionine, Potassium Chloride, Ferrous Sulfate, Vitamin E Supplement, Ascorbic Acid, Zinc Oxide, Manganese Sulfate, Copper Sulfate, Vitamin A Acetate, Calcium Pantothenate, Manganous Oxide, Biotin, Rosemary Extract, Thiamine Mononitrate (souce of Vitamin B1), Vitamin B12 Supplement, Niacin, Riboflavin Supplement (source of Vitamin B2), Inositol, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride (source of Vitamin B6), Vitamin D3 Supplement, Potassium Iodide, Folic Acid, Cobalt Carbonate
I think I might cut back her baths to every two weeks - what do you think?
