I credit his shiny coat to the Wellness puppy food he's on, along with NUPRO supplement. I started it about 3 weeks ago. He had a lot of dandruff. It really shows up on a black dog.
I tried medicated shampoos, coat conditioners, etc. but finally decided to try and fix it from "inside out". Nupro is a powder supplement you add to their food or mix into a gravy and feed. It's got lots of good things in it for coat and skin health... flaxseed, biotin, lecithin, etc. A lot of the dog show people use it.
Here's the website in case you're interested. I see that they will send you a free sample too if you want to try it first. It does take about 3 weeks to see a real difference, but NO more dandruff!
Also, I don't know if this is due to the Nupro or not... but the inside of his thighs on his back legs didn't have any hair and his tummy and chest were pretty bare. I just noticed yesterday that he is getting hair now!
I bought the formulation for small dogs. He gets one "scoop" twice a day. The scoops are about half a teaspoon.
