Help with dog food for my chow with sensitive skin

Post by AriellaHoney »

Hi,

I am currently feeding my 16 month old cream chow Harrington’s dry food and occasional wet food on evenings (forthglade or Harrington’s) and boiled chicken. Her skin has been terrible the past 6 months and she has been biting her thighs pulling her beautiful hair out! The back of her looks so patchy and her tail is a shadow of what is used to be! Can anyone recommend any food that I could swap to that would help improve her skin and fur?
Thank you

Since posting above I have sought some advice from a professional show chow chow owner and asked what she feeds her dog on as his fur is Amazing and he is so chunky and fluffy, she told me she feeds him royal canin adult dry food and leaves this down for him during the day, on the evening she gives him forthglade wet food with the rest of the dry and alternates with tripe (250/200g) every other day. she also adds yumove working dog supplements (2 a day) mixed in with his dinner and paw originals plaque X powder (1 spoonful) to his dinner too. We are going to gradually start swapping our girl over to this diet and see if it makes a difference over the next year. We worked out this costs on average £20 a week (with her eye wipes and cod liver oil) so it is worth it in our eyes. We even took her to the vet and they said they couldn’t see anything that would cause her to do this to her fur, so we put it down to a bad summer. Hopefully the change in diet will help!

Consider the age and size of your dog. All foods are labeled with the type of pet the product is designed for. For example, there are special foods for puppies, for pregnant and lactating dogs, for animals after spaying or neutering, etc.

Chows are prone to skin allergy. You must be choosy in selecting their dry food. Cassie never had anything like bald spots. I would look at her nose, if she’s allergic to her dog food she’d scratch it until sometimes it would bleed. Time to change food.there was a time I shifted her to home cooked meals.

Hello, my Chao Chao and ate quite such expensive food, and she had kidney problems had to remove her stones, which appeared because of the food. I think you should really feed something natural instead of buying food. I even said a qualified vet.
