Is there a diet that would be good for my dogs joints as well as being good for skin?

Q

My eight year old dog has arthritis of his elbows, and the vet put him onto a special diet that’s high in fish oils. His arthritis improved but now he has itchy skin! Is there a diet that would be good for his joints as well as being good for his skin?

A

Good nutrition is an important part of health, and it can also play a significant role in treating certain conditions, including arthritis (as you’ve discovered) and skin disease. Petfix Club’s range of pet food has been specially formulated to maintain and promote joint care, skins and coats. Each recipe contains Omega 3 and 6 for healthy skin and shiny coats.
