The largest organ system in the dog and cat is the skin. Unfortunately, when your pet’s body is prioritizing where to send valuable nutrients, the skin and coat are at the bottom of the priority system. Perhaps this is why veterinarians see more skin and coat problems than anything else these days.
There is a reason why most of our pets do not resemble the champions of Westminster. The majority of today’s pet foods only provide maintenance levels of protein, fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals. Performance animal owners supplement these diets in order to get optimum appearance and health results. When nutrient needs go up, such as we see during increased activity, reproduction, injury, disease, or stress, it becomes easier to see why the skin and coats of our pets can be affected so easily. The nutrients are being used for higher priority systems in the body. Giving our pets more food just to provide additional skin and coat nutrients is not a good idea. More food equals more calories equals unnecessary weight gain – leading to obesity and a multitude of health problems.
This is why I recommend the use of skin and hair coat supplementation. A high-quality nutritional supplement can provide specific skin and coat nutrients in a concentrated form that does not increase the daily caloric intake of your dog or cat. Preventing skin and coat problems before they occur is easier and less expensive than treating them once present. My Canine and Feline Optimum Skin & Coat products are highly concentrated nutritional powders that have been scientifically formulated to provide a balanced, palatable blend of high-quality proteins, Type 1 and 3 Collagen, Omega-3 Fatty Acids, vitamins, minerals, and additional specialty nutrients known to be helpful in maintaining healthy skin and coats.
Optimum Skin & Coat benefits include healthier skin, luxurious coats, reduced shedding, less itching and scratching, and fewer hairball problems for cats. Let’s help our pets look and feel better – add Optimum Skin & Coat to their daily diet.
