I have been feeding my chis Fromm four star for quite some time now & up until just recently everyone did well on it. Tader my oldest just turned 11 years old this month & I noticed that half way through the last bag of Fromm I was feeding he seemed to get really dry & flaky my other 2 are still fine so Im wondering if it could be the food or just his age making him dry...has anyone else experienced any dryness from the food?

I feed Angel, Fromm puppy. For some reason all my pets have flaky skin. Some say it's because of the dryness in the house. But with all the wet weather we've had lately. . .they shouldn't be dry anymore!!

Tader just literally got dry skin so Ive been thinking it must just be his age cause the others are fine & he has been eating it for months now & has been doing great

I wonder if its time of year or allergy related? My guys are raw fed nowadays but I noticed over the past month both Trig and Laurel have had similar dryness/flaking. I gave both a good bath and condition and am giving them a bit more oil/fatty meats and it seems to help.

I wondered if it has to do with allergies too I recently washed his bedding in Tide instead of Cheer so thought maybe that could cause it too..but then I saw on some internet site that as dogs age the food they eat could dry them out & make them flaky. He had a good moisturising bath today & does seem as itchyso far..

Yeah maybe give him some olive oil a few times a week too it can help with itching, a teaspooon over his food but maybe work up to it.

Its a healthy oil/fat. Salmon oil in theory should do the same but it makes some chis ITCH lol. Sooo I usually say if itching is already going on, go w/ Olive oil.
