My beautiful springers coat had changed from shiny to dull and kind of woolly since she was spayed about a year ago - so much so that she is going for first grooming this week - normally I do my dogs but I know when I’m “bet”! Anyone suggest a food supplement that would help - I’m thinking oil if its like my hair change in menopause 😂She is 3 and in tip top health otherwise. Tia

Eggs! You can give her a raw egg (or cooked if you're uncomfortable with that, soft scramble or soft boiled and cooled) to help with her coat. It always helped my parent's dog when I was growing up.

I use Salmon oil:

This is what it is. Sorry link above looks odd:

I had a GSD with skin issues, so my vet told me to give her Evening Primrose oil. It also had an effect on her coat and make her very glossy and sleek. It really made a difference. I also gave her Cod Liver oil.

I believe they make a dog specific ones these days, but back then the vet told me to get the capsules from a health food shop. My dog was the weight of a small adult person though, so it would be worth checking with your own vet re dosage for a smaller breed.

We use Yumega for Ddog. Started with salmon oil but then moved onto this. Has really benefited him
