My dog has this condition. He has just started it about a month ago.We have 2 Australian Shepherd , we started putting fish oil in their food , and buying dog food that has it in it, could this problem be caused from the fish oil? A vet of one of their siblings ,that someone else has was told to use it am that dog has the most beautiful soft hair . What would be the proper dose of fish oil to use? I just wonder if the fish oil is the problem, although his father has the same thing going on , he doesn't get fish oil? Any advise would be greatly appreciated, Thank You, PhyllisView Thread
