All animals require optimum nutrition to maintain good health. For some cats and dogs in certain situations, this can’t always be provided through their diet and needs to be supplemented through nutrients. One such group of nutrients are the Omega 3 and Omega 6 Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs).
Signs of Poor Coat Health
There are many signs of potential skin and coat problems, some of which may lead to skin complaints. The main ones to look out for are:
Dry or reddened skin
Scaly or flaky skin
Poor hair growth
Repeated skin problems
Coatex EFA comes in either a gel capsule or a liquid pump, to suit the needs of you and your pet. Your vet will advise on the quantity to feed. Both can be given alone or mixed in with food.
