I noticed it last night. His skin is just dry and flaky. Kinda looks like when our skin peels after a sunburn, but it isn't red and irritated looking.

What can I do to help him out?

Thanks,
Elizabeth

Brush him out.....or give him an oil pill.....or bathe him in an anti flake/itch shampoo....he may just need some more oil in his skin.... :)

How often do you bathe Enzo? Linatone works great. I've used that in the past and I use it now with my ferret once a day to keep his coat shiny.

Kemo's Mamma- What type of oil pill do you recommend? I put Omega 3 oil in Zeus's food once a day. Is that the same type of ingredient?

I bathe him about every 3-4 weeks. Just depends on how dirty he is. Is Linotone a spray or a shampoo? I am going to stop by the pet supply to see if they have any. I talked to the breeder and she told me to bathe him in baby shampoo instead of puppy shampoo, so I will change this also. He doesn't scratch at it so it doesn't bother him I guess. But the flakes are all in his hair, so I think his whole body is just flaking.

Thanks for the help :)
