Dry skin! Help!
Brutus has an appointment with our vet on January 5th due to his dry skin. I noticed this being an issue when he was sick with an upper respiratory infection. I've started him on fish oil and switched his food about a month ago to orjien. The strange thing is, is he's not scratching or digging at his skin. I found two small scabs on his back thar he can't even reach if he wanted to..I'm planning on giving him an oatmeal bath today per vets orders. Other than fish oil and brushing, what else can I do?

My little guys skin is dry too.

Sometimes he gets exactly what you describe, little scabs,dry flaky and the fur comes out easily...
Something to be concerned about?? :/
I was just researching on stuff I could do.
I mean his belly area is fine, but areas with fur is dry underneath when you run your fingers through it.
His back has this crazy smell, my husband says it smells of burnt hair.
I thought it was his anal glands but it wasn't, and it goes away after a bath but on the 3-4 day after it comes back.
