Does your dog have itchy, sensitive skin?
Unfortunately itchy, flaky or dry and sensitive skin is all too common in dogs of all ages and something many owners struggle with – it is not nice for the dog, and it is not fun for you to deal with either! There can be many contributing factors, including fleas, pollens and shampoos, so it is important to rule these out…but diet and food may contribute.
Optiderma contains high quality pieces of salmon as the first ingredient, making it a highly palatable and digestible food. Using salmon as the main protein source, along with the fact that the food contains a restricted number of proteins, helps reduce possible skin discomfort. The food contains no added wheat gluten*, no beef or dairy products, and contains no added artificial colours or preservatives.
The food contains a combination of key nutrients such as omega fatty acids, specific vitamins and minerals that target and help support skin health. This scientific blend includes zinc and vitamins A, B, C and E. These help in the production of new skin cells, cell growth and aid repair. Omega 3 and 6 essential fatty acids helps support natural anti-inflammatory processes, it also help promote a shiny and healthy coat and skin. In addition, did you know that 95% of each dog’s hair is composed of protein, so all of these nutrients alongside a high quality protein source like salmon could make a difference to your dog’s skin?
Finally, it is worth remembering that PURINA PRO PLAN Optiderma is a complete food and comes in puppy, adult and senior versions – so however old your dog is there should be a product in the range which will be ideal for them! So why not give it a go today and let us know how you get on?
