I realize this is a bit off topic but I have been searching and I trust the opinion of Skin Biology much more than any cosmetic company I found searching around...
I have a dog that has dry skin with almost-chronic slightly red patches on her chest. She is a 2 years old pitbull and her belly has very little fur, it is almost hairless. I have to wash her often because she runs like crazy in the mud all the time. I use high quality shampoo but that of course dries out her skin. I also read pitbulls are notorious for skin issues.
I used squalane on her, but I have not seen a difference so far, and give a teaspoon of coconut oil with her food daily, I read that helps the skin in dogs. Emu would be too thick and then she would leave oily residues on the carpet. I was wondering if you have any suggestions other than squalane? Should I mix some CP lotions with squalane? Should I treat her fur like it was hairs and use CP products for hair on her?
Many thanks in advance and sorry for the off topic question Smiler

Protect & Restore Body Lotion might make her look better.

My dog's skin is doing great! The area of her belly that has the little stripes in the photo that I link was all red (the stripes are just from the texture of the tarp she lays on sometimes). Now it is is perfectly white!
I just used from time to time a little bit of P & R with High Retinol and Oil of Lavender and squalane. Not daily in order not to make her skin too oily and therefore smelly.
Thank you Dr. Pickart!! Smiler
