I have a 10 week old toy poodle, I feel like his fur is very thin, I understand this is his puppy coat. But I´m just worried because I can see his skin through his coat, and when I look at other toy poodles his age, they are much fluffier than him. I am considering starting to give him skin and coat supplements, to see if this helps. Does anyone have any other advice??? Or dealt with this problem before???
In the first picture you can see the thin area, around his chest and front legs. I uploaded the second, because his legs look very long in the first but they are not. Is this a normal size for a 10 week old toy poodle?? I feel like he is also very small.
You can try putting him an omega 3 supplement like fish oil and see if that helps. Kibble is lacking omega 3's, and without it their skin and coat can suffer. His coat doesn't look bad, so if adding omega 3's doesn't help you can see your vet. Is he scratching at all?
Yeah he is, he scratches his ears, and also licks his paws a lot. I think was a food allergy, so I just switched him over last week. The itching has slowed down a lot, but occasionally he´ll still scratch.
Here is a supplement used for all dogs in all stages. It squirts right on the food. It's on Chewy.com and will come right to you. I would definitely add this. It's an Omega 3 supplement made from Alaskan Salmon :-)
