If it is SEborrhea, your dog will need a veterinary strength Omega supplement. I use VetriScience Omega 3, 6, 9
. Because I am a canine nutrition specialist, I was able to understand what type of food & supplementation she needed.
In a comparison study done with Seborrhic shampoos, DermaPet SebS
Shampoo beat out Virbac Sebolux
, plus Virbac
is chemical-based. Those are the two most common Seborrhic shampoos available. (I've put these in bold & italics so they're easier to read).
One of my girls has this condition & it was found when she was very young. It took about 12 weeks to get it under control (there is no cure for this). After 12 weeks, one would never even know she has it, BUT it took a lot of work to get her to this point. I shampooed her 3x/day for 2 months, then 1x/week for 2 months. Now, I shampoo her every 4-5 weeks.
Also remember, that dogs with Seborrhea are more susceptible to skin infections, such as pyoderma & ear problems, so it is absolutely VITAL to keep them clean & DRY. The skin of dogs with Seborrhea is very sensitive
Here is a good site I found to explain it. I keep it bookmarked: http://www.upei.ca/cidd/Diseases/der.../seborrhea.htm
