Skin and Coat Solutions for the New Year

Happy New Year! Now that your pet has calmed down from the unsettling firework displays, he or she can focus on New Year’s Resolutions. The start of a new year offers hope that we can be the best versions of ourselves possible, ridding ourselves of the bad and focusing on the good. Why not begin by improving your pet’s skin and coat, helping your dog or cat achieve luscious fur worthy of a shampoo commercial? Cue the movie makeover montage!

Not only do we want our dogs and cats to look their best, but we also want them to feel their best. Omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acid supplementation, found in abundance in many grains and fish, is the perfect starting place! These essential healthy fats work from the inside out to support your pet’s skin and coat. Omega fats, primarily the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA, provide your pet’s skin and fur with important building blocks. Pro·Sense® offers oral omega fatty acid supplements for dogs in both liquid and tablet form. Simply pour the recommended amount of Pro·Sense® Skin & Coat Solutions Liquid over your dog’s food or directly feed the Pro·Sense® Skin & Coat Solutions Tablets. Before offering any supplement to your pet, always ask your personal veterinarian if it’s right for your individual dog or cat.

As you and your pet continue your journey toward self-improvement and health, remember that cold winter weather can be taxing on your pet’s nose and paw pads. Always wipe and dry off your pet’s paws upon returning from the outdoors this winter as your pet may have stepped in road salt or antifreeze (ethylene glycol), the latter of which can be deadly if ingested. And don’t forget to pamper! Pro·Sense® Plus Paw & Nose Solutions contains beeswax and coconut oil to help reduce symptoms from dry paws and noses. This topical solution will literally aid your pet in putting his or her best foot forward this year!
