What Does It Take to Get a Beautiful Coat?

[caption id="attachment_7400" align="alignleft" width="238" caption="Healthy skin and coat begins with good nutrition"][/caption] What does it take to get a beautiful coat and healthy skin? Simply put, good nutrition. And, according to our friends at AvoDerm, specialized nutrition. As in avocados. Why avocados? That's what we wanted to know, too. And here's what we learned from AvoDerm: Keeping your dog or cat's skin healthy requires the right nutrients--in the right proportions. Skin and coat are not simply cosmetic. In fact, you can tell a lot about your pet's health by the condition of his or her skin or coat.  If your pup or cat is experiencing hair loss, thinning coat, dullness, dry skin, thickening skin, matted hair, or infections, these symptoms often can be traced back to either a shortage or an excess of a specific nutrient. The good news is that many of the nutrients your pet needs to maintain a healthy coat can be found in rich amounts of avocado.

They also pack a punch with folate, potassium, niacin, essential fatty acids and many other nutrients essential to good skin, a healthy coat, and, of course, an overall healthy pup. Avocados also are cholesterol-free, sodium-free, and are low in saturated fat, too. What part of the avocado are in AvoDerm products? AvoDerm uses only the avocado meat. The avocado oil is extracted from ripened fruit in which the meat pulp has been separated from the skin and the pit. A specialized process extracts the oil and filters and places it into sealed containers.

AvoDerm has just introduced its new Natural Revolving Menu line of dog foods. We know that we don't like to eat the same thing every day, and you know what? Your dog doesn't, either. AvoDerm has created this new line of foods so that you can feed your dog a variety of nutritious options, all without causing any stomach upset. You can feed your dog just one recipe or any combination of recipes--each was specially formulated to be interchangeable, so that you can give your dog variety without giving him stomach upset. Each recipe is grain-free and uses a protein as its first ingredient. Choose from Trout, Turkey and Duck formulas. Interested in trying a sample?
