The kibble I feed has Omega 3's in it and I also, as a regular topper on the kibble, at least once a week and often more times than that, use tuna or salmon, [the fish not the oil] which Ace loves as does the maltese. Both are excellent sources of protein and Omega 3

    A couple of sardines is a great topping too, use the water packed.

    She is only 7 months old, I would give her some time to grow out of it, think of it like she is a teenager with acne right now. Bacon's got real bad around that age and then subsided as he got older. He is 1 and a half now and gets an occasional pimple.

    Thank you. She does lick her 2 front paws for a bit at night when laying in bed, but she is prolly just cleaning them..and also at night sometimes she makes this blowing out of her nose sound. Could be trying to clear nose, could be inverted sneeze .who knows. But nothing frantic. I've started wiping her paws after her last walk to see if maybe its outside. She did have some dander but the oil stopped it. So, maybe whatever could be bugging her is not food related at all.
    This is her chin: grrrr still sideways..can you still see?

    Her chin looks fine, it's probably just growing up acne, Bacon's was much works then that. He had almost no fun on his chin when he went through that phase it was just really raw and painful looking all the time.

    Mmmmm...did somebody say, COCONUTS?! Yum, Yum!!!
    @Lisabear123, I've been using coconut oil for about 1month now--putting 1 teaspoon twice a day in the boy's food as well as cooking with it. This morning I also put a bunch on myself b/c my skin's so dry and itchy. Oh, but on to the bullies...I just started putting some on Finn's coat and paws this a.m. b/c he is such an itchy bugger! He licks his paws often and i'm wondering if it's more a habitual thing of his or if he truly is itchy. Nevertheless, i'm trying to see if the coconut oil as a topical will help him. The chin acne is something i've dealt with in both boys too and definitely using stainless steel bowls as well as wiping their faces dry after drinking and eating has helped a lot.

    Thank you. I thinking of using the coconut on her paws to see if it helps them from being so dry. Her chin is actually better. Wonder if you can use the coconut oil on their noses to keep it soft?

    Yes, I'd put some on her nose and see if that helps the dryness. Interestingly, Finn has not been licking his paws (knock on wood) all morning! I just came back from Trader Joe's and got another jar of coconut oil b/c i'm planning on using it on myself too

    Henny I got a great spray to use as a topical for itching, it's basically a combo of tea tree oil and aloe in a pump spray bottle. I worked wonders with Bacon over the winter when his skin dried out after being bathed

    Thanks Pete, that's really good to know. Tea tree oil and aloe sounds like a very soothing combo for the dryness. I know tea tree oil is used to help w/dandruff in us humans (amongst other things). Did u find it at a health store?

    Henny I actually found it at our local pet store in town. I'll find the bottle when I get home and let you know what it's called and what brand it is.
