My Valentino had terrible dandruff. His vet said it was due to dry skin. She had me add Goat's milk and coconut oil to his diet. His dandruff lessened dramatically after about a month. The amount of coconut oil (solid or liquid) per day should be no more than 1 teaspoon per 10lbs of body weight. Valentino is about 27 lbs. so I give him about 2.5-3 teaspoons a day. I divide the amount in half and add it too his meals. I feed goat milk rarely because it is so high in calories.

Does anyone give their senior B's a vitamin supplement and if so what kind and are they flavored? I bought some Canine Plus Senior, however, the pills are quite big and they have a "smokey" flavor which is not going over very big. Thanks for any input!

I used to give my older Bs a supplement. Here's what I gave them
I don't have any elderly dogs anymore but when I did I gave them, "The Honest Kitchens" supplement, called "Invigor", it is more like an antioxidant, but it put the pep in their step..if you know what I mean. They also have something called "Lithe tea", which is good for elderly dogs aching joints. Their products are all natural and even tested for taste by human testers..yumm-o. My daughter thinks it all tastes pretty bad, but the dogs think otherwise and that is all that matters.
I just use Missing Link, and have recently switched over to the one w/ glucosamine for the oldsters. They're not that old, but they're heavy performance dogs.
