    Smile Can you put lotion on your bully?

    -harveyspecter14-jpg-harveyspecter15-jpg

    Hello again.

    I have given harvey two baths since I got him 2 weeks ago and I am concern that I am drying his coat. Can I put lotion on him. Any hand (human) moisturizing lotions, doggie lotions? what is the best with least amount of allergens?

    I would not use lotion as it may make him break out. Best way to keep skin from drying out is by feeding coconut or salmon oil with his food.

    I wouldn't use lotion on him or bath him so much. Once or twice a month is plenty, more than that drys their skin out.

    Agree with David and Lisa.... less baths and you can give one of the oils for his skin/coat, not lotion

    Agree with the fish oil pills or coconut oil. It has done wonders for my guy

    Fish oil and coconut will really help his coat, I also agree about bathing may be rough on the skin. Have you considered just plain water if he needs some cleaning? Also I have added a small amount of EVO to my labs belly when it seemed overly dry to me, id think coconut oil on the skin if really needed would be acceptable.

    Coconut oil in his food.

    thanks to all. I have added virgin coconut oil in his bowl. He likes the taste and consumes his food in no time.
