Good morning chaps can someone help, one of my labs has developed what can only be described as an unpleasant coat, the dogs are kept outdoors and until about 2 months ago had really nice thick glossy coats, frontline and drontal used, changed food from high protein working crunch at end of season to lower protein chicken and rice,always had cod liver oil and raw beef bones, bedded on shredded newspaper, no other changes to environment or diet.
Took her to the vet and they sold me some shampoo containing Aloe Vera and gave me a bill of £45, it has made no difference.
The condition of her coat is worrying as it is very dull and she has started losing hair, there is a quite severe crusty outbreak along her back with alot of dandruff, she scratches sometimes but no sign of flea problem,
Apart from this she is a fit and happy dog, eating well, poo is normal and regular.
The other dogs run with her at exercise and so far seem unaffected.
Any advice, apart from obviously changing my vet, would be great.
I will be checking in everyday, hopefully advice incoming?
