Interesting question. I'm not sure actually but will certainly clear out the colon :)
I'm assuming you are speaking of spay coat?
Hi! Yes am referring to the spay coat which is looking so sad!!! I believe Omega 3 is also good. My Homeopath will phone me tomorrow and will let you know his suggestion. Thanks for responding.

You have to be careful with the omega 3/fish oil. There needs to be a balance between the amino acids and have read there can be some health consequences when that gets tilted too far off.
LOL I recently asked questions about spay coat too. Is it in the bloodlines or related to the age when they were spayed. Not sure anyone is really sure. I spayed a couple around the 2 yr age and both had horrible spay coats. The darker golden showed so much more, the lighter one looked like she is wearing lambskin chaps. The girl that was spayed at 3 did not have spay coat at all. Of course they are all different bloodlines so is it breeding? or age? My current pup will be 2 this summer and know her grandma has bad spay coat so going to wait another year, just in case it's age related :) Groomers might have a good response on how to handle it, I just use leave in cream rinse and blow out anything that's loose. Hope you will post if you figure this out!

Hi Thanks for the note. It may well be blood lines as my previous Golden never got a spray coat at all! I am waiting for the Homeopath to call back and see what he suggests. The ideal would be almost a conditioner onto the coat that nourishes it! Will post when I get some news. Thanks for the chat!
