    The Fur Factor: 5 Steps To A Shiny Dog Coat, Absolutely Life

    No matter what breed of dog you have, I’m sure it will have a gorgeous fur coat. Even short-haired breeds, such as pugs and bulldogs, will have beautiful fur that helps add to their charm and adorableness. However, it can be very easy to neglect a dog’s fur coat. Doing so could result in it losing its shine and, in some extreme cases, the fur might even start to fall out!

    Thankfully, it isn’t too difficult to maintain your dog’s coat. You just need to follow these five simple steps.

    The Fur Factor: 5 Steps To A Shiny Dog Coat, Absolutely Life

    Use The Right Shampoo

    There are a lot of different doggy shampoos out there and some of them might not be suitable for your dog. For instance, some shampoos have been specially designed for use on the coats of certain breeds of dog. You might even notice that some shampoos are for long-haired dogs, while others are only for those with short hair. You will also need to consider how often you need to bathe your dog. If you bath them more than once a week, you should consider getting a fairly weak shampoo that won’t irritate their skin too much.

    Condition With Coconut Oil

    If you take a look at https://simplewag.com/coconut-oil-for-dogs/, you can see that there are so many different benefits of coconut oil for dogs. One such benefit is that it can help to condition and improve the overall quality of their fur coat. You can get special dog-friendly coconut oil to run into your pooch’s fur, or you might just want to give them a daily coconut oil supplement.

    Feed Them The Right Foods

    It’s also worth paying attention to what exactly is in your dog’s food. If you are just buying the cheapest dog food that you find in the supermarket, it probably won’t be doing their coat any good. However, many specialist foods, such as Eukanuba.com, often have foods that are fortified with all the ingredients needed to improve coat health.

    Brush As Often As Possible

    Regardless of the length of your dog’s fur, you will need to brush them as often as you can. If your dog is long-haired, then you should try and brush them every day! All of this brushing is necessary as it helps to remove any dead hair that is caught on the coat. Removing all of the shedded hair helps to improve the overall quality of your dog’s fur and coat.

    Talk To Your Vet

    If you carry out all of the steps above but still find it difficult to improve the health of your dog’s fur coat, you should book an appointment with your dog’s vet and discuss it with them. The issue with the coat could be caused by an underlying health condition that has yet to be diagnosed. If so, your vet will be able to prescribe creams and supplement that can solve the condition and also improve your dog’s coat.

    Hopefully, your dog can then benefit from a luscious fur coat!
