Mt pyppy is about 3 months old I’m feeding him blue buffalo puppy food.

What can i feed him for a healthy shiny coat what can i add to his food or diet??

Hi Jose
Blue Buffalo puppy food is a premium food and should give your puppy all the nutrients he needs to be happy and healthy.

You could add some Omega 3 Fatty Acids or Fish Oil to one of his daily meals if you want to. This does help keep the coat and skin in great condition. Take a look at:

Only Natural Pet Omega 3-6-9 Dog & Cat Supplement

Ark Naturals Royal Coat for Dogs and Cats

Only Natural Pet Pure Icelandic Cod Liver Oil Dog & Cat Supplement 17 oz

Rottweiler puppies coats are often ‘fuzzier’ than adults, and may be a bit longer. Some Rotties also have a thicker undercoat than others. All of this might make your pup’s coat look less shiny than some other pups, but it doesn’t mean his coat isn’t healthy.

Hope this helps, best of luck with your pup.

Loki NEW
by: Joe

My rottie Loki always gets complements on his coat when we are out. When I first got him his coat was matte but I figured it was because he wasn’t being fed properly (before he be became a part of my family) or may have been dirty. His vet comments on his shiny “beautiful coat” which I didn’t understand until I come across other rotts with matte coats. I always give him a The Missing Link Skin & Coat and from the complements might be working wonders. But I do know this guy loves that stuff he will not eat his rice and chicken without it.

Puppy 8 weeks Old NEW
by: Sachinkc


My pup Max is 8 weeks old today, since last week I just started giving him Omega 3 fish oil (consumed by humans).

I am not sure as to how regularly I need to feed him this. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Would 1 Pill (500mg) a week be good enough?

Tips For Ensuring Healthy Dog Coat NEW
by: Anonymous

Hey there!

I’ve had issues with my puppy’s shedding and bad coat health in the past, but it’s really all a matter of dietary changes and just getting rid of some bad habits and replacing them with good ones.

Here’s some stuff you could do to keep your dog’s coat as healthy as possible:

Quality food: Your dog???s hair quality is a direct result of what you feed them, which is a very big reason why you should take extra attention when it comes to their diet and ensure they only eat high quality food. Are your dogs getting the necessary levels of protein, healthy fats, vitamins and minerals they need on a day to day basis? Avoid cheap dog food at all costs, and focus on quality food that contains meat as the dominant ingredient which are much easier for your dog to digest properly and benefit from. As for fruits and vegetables, you can feed them sliced apples (without seeds), bananas, and cucumbers.

Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids: Besides the many (and I mean many) positive health effects they can have on your dog, they also help out in reducing your dog???s shedding. Adding flax-seed oil to your dog???s food is an excellent way to ensure your dog gets enough Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids. You can also feed your dog fish rich in Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids like Salmon or tuna, but make sure you never give them any fish bones, as you run the risk of having them choke.

Regular bathing: The cleaner you can keep your dog, the healthier their coat will be. However, make sure not to over-bathe your dogs, because that can cause their skin to turn dry and their hair to excessively fall out. Not sure how frequent you should be bathing your dog? Your vet is the best person that can take care of that question.

Exposure To Light: The more you expose your dog to natural light, the healthier their coat will be, and the less they will shed as a result.

This article has much more tips and explanation all about this if you feel like reading up on the subject:
