|My dog Remy always has an oily, greasy, feeling coat and she seems to have an odor. None of my other dogs have this problem. Even my Lab, Feather, who is supposed to have an oily coat to be waterproof, doesn't have this problem. My dogs eat raw, but not always prey model. They do on occasion get The Honest Kitchen or Sojos with meats mixed in. But, for the most part, it is prey model, Meat/bone/organs. I am wondering if she is getting too much fat or something. Anyone else?
She is a mutt but our best guess at her breed is some kind of hound mix. She doesn't have a coat like my beagle though, Remy's fur is softer. If you look at her pictures on her page you can guess at her breed too. Maybe she has some spaniel in her?
Anyway, I must also say that she is my dog that is always hungry, always has a growly tummy, and the only one who gets grain because of it. If I don't add some slow-to-digest grain like oatmeal or quinoa to her food, she is hungry, starving actually, 4 hours later. Could it be the grain? I have never heard of grain making them oily or greasy, maybe smelly though.
Thanks in advance for any help!!
Jenn and Remy
