When I'm working on building the new chicken coop my two lab/hound mix puppies play in the sand nearby and it seems to have really dried out their skin. The air is humid, but the dirt here really takes moisture out of skin.

Do you think a little bit of canola or vegetable oil rubbed into the fur/skin would help? Would an egg mixed into their food help? I know that seafood is high in omega 3 and vitamin e (both essential for healthy skin)... so, do you think their intestines can digest fish without getting a belly ache at such a young age? They are seven weeks and a couple days old now.

Ok. I'll get the "cold pressed" kind. I hate seeing the puppies uncomfortable. Thanks :D
