As dogs age their skin and coat can become dry and brittle – one way to add moisture and shine to your dog’s coat is flax-seed and oils and Fatty acids. These are essential ingredients to any pet’s diet. They help to improve the texture of his coat, making for fuller, shinier hair. Healthy skin and a healthy coat are not only beautiful to look at and to pet, but also give a good indication of your dog’s internal health.
This Shiny Coat Dog Treat Recipe is not only healthy for your dog but taste good!
