I wondered if there was anything to give our dog for dry skin. I don't know if it is from the weather or his food or if he just needs alittle extra; maybe fish oil?

He's eating Acana Pacifica and absolutely loves it!

If there is not any medical issues going on, then I would add some fish oil to his diet.

My dogs are on a kibble rotation and I always supplement with 1000 mg of human grade salmon oil each day. I also give a teaspoon of unrefined virgin coconut oil every other day which I feel particularly helps with dry skin.

I like the Acana series too.

Our dogs get fish oil supplements every day. We use the human grade Spring Valley brand. They are 1000-mg tablets. We get it either at Wal-Mart or Target. Tucker started to get a little bit of dry, flaky skin last winter and the fish oil tablets helped significantly and he has been on them ever since. It's also great for their hearts and can help prevent some cancers, so I would still give it even if my dogs weren't prone to dry skin.
