5 Ways for Improving Fur Texture in Pets

The priority of dog owners revolves around keeping their darling dogs healthy and happy. This means feeding them right, playing and cuddling with them, providing them enough exercise, and ensuring the proper care of their fur.

The general condition of your dog's skin and coat are good indicators of his overall wellbeing. A healthy coat looks shiny, smooth, not fragile or rough, and loose. At the same time, healthy skin must be clear and supple, not greasy, flaky, or bumpy.

In this article, we have outlined the best-proven tips that will help keep your pet coat groomed, soft, and shiny.

Top Five Ways for Enhancing Your Canine-Pal Fur Texture


1.      Feed Your Furry Baby Good Quality Food

If you wish your pup’s fur to be healthy and smooth, ensure to offer him a diet full of nutrition. The best way to do that is by eliminating low-quality food, as many brands add starchy ingredients (lower-cost formulas) that can affect your dog's health. Ensure to look for the ingredients list and the sell-by date on the package to get insights into the products.

On the other hand, dogs' coat holds 90% of protein, and a low protein diet can cause dull coats. Hence, while buying food for your dog, look for protein as the key ingredient. Besides protein, the other factor could be amino acid as it helps in making new cell-building blocks for their natural coat. You can consider chicken (a 100 g chicken breast provides 31 g of protein) and lamb (100 g of lamb sirloin contains 28 g protein), as both are rich in protein and amino acids.

If you are plan to travel with your pooch, you can deem freeze-dried food for your furry baby, as they hold all the essential nutrients in organic food ingredients. Besides, it tends to be a travel-friendly option.

2.      Emphasis on Pet Grooming

Brush your canine-pal frequently to help enhance skin oil production, stimulate the skin, and boost the hair follicles’ growth. Ensure to invest in a good quality hairbrush that will help you take care of your furry baby coats.

Moreover, keep a record of your dog's bath and ensure to provide a bath to your pup twice a month while using pet shampoos with organic ingredients. These ingredients are suitable for your dog’s skin, ensuring shiny and smooth dog fur. Besides, natural ingredients lower the risks of skin irritation or itching.


3.      Get Your Hands-on Natural Supplements

Natural supplements can help make your dog's fur soft and shiny. You can opt for horsetail, also known as Equisetum arvense, a family of ferns that replicate by spores rather than seeds. Horsetail is rich in silica and helps maintain a healthy coat, skin, and bones. Additionally, it can be used to treat urinary tract disorders, including bladder infections, urinary incontinence, and kidney stones in cats and dogs.

CBD, or cannabidiol, is another organic substance found in cannabis and hemp and is beneficial for animals in numerous ways, including promoting the overall health of animals, treating inflammatory problems, seizures, pain relief, and anxiety. According to a survey by Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine study, CBD capsules can help relieve pain while improving the overall quality of your pet.

CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid receptors located in the central and peripheral nervous systems, which helps maintain balance in the body. However, it's recommended to rely on trustworthy brands like Sunday Scaries for CBD products since many manufacturers offer counterfeited products due to the massive demand for CBD.


4.      Take Care of Your Pups Fitness

Apart from grooming and providing a healthy, nutritious diet, take your darling dog out for routine workouts and walks. It's significant for your dog to exercise daily to have a toned and healthy body. Furthermore, exercising makes your dog a friendly animal and can enhance its outward appearance, including eyes, tail, face, and a healthy coat.


5.      Keep Your Pet Hydrated

Staying hydrated is vital to keep healthier skin. Hence, you must ensure that your puppy drinks enough water during the day for countless reasons, including maintaining its coat shiny and healthy. Accordingly, being a pet parent, it's your responsibility to prioritize hydration, mainly if he only consumes dry food as such foods don’t provide sufficient water. Experts recommend 1 ounce's water for every pound that they weigh every day, meaning a 10-pound dog needs about two-thirds of a 16oz bottle of water daily.


Elevate Your Pet's Presence with Custom Pet Artwork

Amidst the care routine, consider immortalizing the vibrant spirit of your furry friend through custom pet artwork. These unique artworks beautifully capture the personality and essence of your beloved canine companion, providing a lasting tribute to the joy they bring into your life. Explore the world of custom pet artwork with a focus on your pet's uniqueness and individuality.

Wrap Up

If you find your pooch scratching a lot, it could be a clear sign of allergy or perhaps other diseases. Do not forget to consult a veteran to get the proper treatment in such scenarios. No matter the dog breed, they cannot communicate in words. So, being a pet parent, it's your responsibility to ensure that you are doing the right things for your canine pal.
