Default What can I get for Cookie's dry skin?

He has a small patch on one leg which is very dry and flakey. It doesn't irritate him and that's the only place it is. I'd like to get some sort of cream to apply there but I'm not sure of any dog creams on the market.

Anyone know what I can get for him? Thanks

Are you giving him any fish oil supplements? That will help if it is just dry from the cold
Winter season. If it's a skin condition, maybe the Vet should look to see if it needs antibiotic cream.
Hope it gets better soon

I used to give them salmon oil but I stopped. I've just found a cream for dry skin online so I'll give that a go.
